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.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
