OMG. I must have 1000 photos of Dave 's models. I think I'll contribute just a few as we go along.
First, I must say why I love these models: The have an elegant simplicity that makes them perfect for modding, while having a no-compromise quality of premium textures. This is why SO MANY of my fold-flat/interior modifications are of Dave Graffam models.
So, I'll start with one of my most recent builds/mods - I take a 7-piece model and trick it out to be a showpiece using only DGM textures:
Finally I made a 3rd version of the walls (shown in most of the photos), with the panels cut out, and wall size sheets of acetate glued between the interior and anterior walls. This made the sides very strong and resistant to warping.
Ah, thanks for the return welcome VK. Nice to be missed. I have missed this place too. I don't want to derail this wonderful thread, so I will just say current circumstances can best be described as turbulent and uncertain and leave it at that. I do intend to make a more concerted return once I have regained stability.
I need to reclaim the town from my former home, and give it the love it's been bereft of in the last year. I have at least a dozen of Dave's models still to assemble, plus a few kitbashes, and I am eager to expand its scope and interactivity.

Vermin King: I didn't post at the time (fairly angry still), but my June Papercraft meeting was cancelled by the venue without even notifying me. They said they would call the previous participants, but I don't know if I can trust them

sergeantmajormarkoff: I like it very much. Somehow seems like it would make the transition between Arrakis, Barsoom, and the Sahara very nicely.

squirmydad: I use winXP in Paralells on my Macbook to run Pepakura and Metasequoia. Otherwise I only touch Windows when a client can't figure out how to mirror their display to my projectors.

Vermin King: Is it the Windows updates or the Firefox updates that won't allow me to select where to download pdf's any more?
