After seeing the huge Megaton Recycler (http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=industrynews&action=display&thread=2867) I thought about trying to paint over paper models in heavy cardstock, but never got around to do it. Did you have to use some kind of sealant before painting?
Great job! It's good to see different styles of paper miniatures and interesting to see paper used as a sculpting material instead of just a modeling form. More like forming the paper to shape and less like paper cut outs. I'd love to hear about you process in making this miniature. How big is it? Do you start with patterns? What glue do you use?
Any gamers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA?
This is on par with Tirick's 3D figurine madness (though I think, Tirick is just one micro-inch more insane, cause he wants his minis to be POSABLE ;D). As WaffleM mentioned, totally different paradigm of paper modeling. It has a lot to do with the big scale question: when do you have to turn to full-detailed 3D bossies, when will flat paper lose its magic ? The borderline could be thin here ... .
This mini is an example, that you can build just EVERYTHING out of sturdy paper. Great.
gothique: Family is certainly a great analogy. I am always delighted by the amount of support and exchange of ideas in tis extended family

Vermin King: There has been a lot of talk lately about 'community'. I do think we are more like 'family' here than 'community'. Not that community is bad, but family is better

creyates: I don't know Glenn, but my thoughts are with him and his family + friends. Hope he gets better soon.

Vermin King: Thoughts and prayers, folks. Thoughts and prayers

okumarts: I haven't heard much except that his wife said that they are looking to see if there is any lasting damage or if it is hospital dementia after coming out of the surgery. I'll have another look around. Ugh, this is just awful.

Vermin King: I haven't seen anything new

cowboyleland: I just noticed this now. Any news on Glenn?

gothique: I hope Glenn gets better soon. We became friends through this hobby and his models have formed the basis of many of my projects

squirmydad: My heart just sank, thoughts and prayers indeed.

Vermin King: I saw on Facebook that glennwilliams coded on the table while he was having surgery and is now in ICU on a ventilator. Thoughts and prayers would be appreciated

squirmydad: The minis are...out there...

cowboyleland: Thanks to squirmydad for continuing to make the forgotten cool stuff easy to find.

Vermin King: Got to see Jeff Beck at one of those. Pretty cool. Only time I saw Adrian Belew was at a club gig in KC. Now, I am trying to get Mom up and running on Pandora for old country music. It's her first smart phone

Vermin King: I think I have it going now, Barbara Streisand hasn't come up on Willie Nelson in over 48 hours. Back when I was in Cleveland, a disc jockey was formerly with Peter Frampton's band. He set up club gigs for folks

senkosmos: I'm a fan of every artist you mentioned, particularly Jeff Beck (Beck, Boggart & Appice being among my top 3 heavy blues albums, I'ts certainly a pity that Pandora is given you such a hard time to listen to Belew

Vermin King: I then did another search and started a new Adrian Belew station. It did have 'Artist Only', but the Thumbs Playlist would only go to eight songs. If I added a song, it deleted another. I think I now have it fixed. Didn't have that problem with others
Jun 11, 2021 14:41:41 GMT -9
Vermin King: Back to Pandora. I doubt that there are many Adrian Belew fans here, but on Pandora he is jinxed. I deleted the radio station since it did not offer 'Artist Only' mode, and the Adrian Belew Radio Thumbs Playlist never existed.
