My journey into papercraft\card started 5 or 6 years ago where on a whim I purchased the Pireme Publishing Waterloo kits. I made them too fast with little thought of longevity, construction methods or storage. Below is the finsh piece in 2011
Of course, earthquakes, storage issues and neglect left them in a sorry state and 5 years later I found them again about a month ago in the garage. Pretty beaten up but I am quiet fond of them ( I think it is from making things off weetbox boxes when I was a kid) so I started to repair them ....very crudely. A hot glue gun and coffee stirrers did them the world of good.
I am getting there and they are still fairly beaten up (as well as the original construction being poor) but after I base them and disguise things they should last a while longer.
So, then from there I started to make the Hougonmont kit, a burger joint (WWG maybe I can't remember) and a few weeks ago I also followed a youtube clip to make some very very basic 1/72 Tudor houses (below) - plenty of mistakes but still enjoyable.
So here I am .....I have tried a few other simple card kits for practice but they failed or had accidents (cat \ children) however I can now take what I have learnt as I have a Fort Apache, Vauhban Fort and Spanish village I picked up from paperterrain.
From there, as our printer can only handle 160gsm I'll most likley make a few 1/72 cogs\longships from heavy card as I need them for solo games in my fantasy world.

Coyotepunc: I've been dealing with a variety of covid-19 symtpoms since January, except for the fever (12% of cases have no fever.) My kid woke up with almost all the symptoms including high fever today.

squirmydad: Bag is handy, if you find it loose use the seeds, but then you need something like an infuser or it's a mess.

shep: most likely bag...

Vermin King: My friend Mike brought a sword to his church last night, but since he was there recording his sermon for today, he thought it would be okay

marcpasquin: Every time I go out, my wife tells me to be safe and reminds that as this is not a zombie apocalypse, I am not allowed to bring a chainsword with me to the grocery store.

Vermin King: No, this is the first time I have heard of it

squirmydad: Have you tried fennel tea to ease some of your bronchial issues? I like it and it seems to help me.

Vermin King: But I should be good for at least another week before I will need to head out for restocking anything

Vermin King: I think the biggest problem is that I've been dealing with it since the 17th. I know that my immunity level is down from being sick this long, and now one of my medications also lowers immunity. And we've got this blasted other thing floating around

okumarts: Wow, I somehow missed the whole illness thing Vermin King. Bronchitis can really knock you for a loop. Rest and get better!!

Vermin King: Timing -- got my Missouri Conservationist magazine which features an article on Missouri Orchids, so I think my easy pretty project will be revisiting Orchidgami

squirmydad: Never thought I'd be happy to hear about a case of bronchitis. Get better.
Apr 3, 2020 14:52:11 GMT -9
Vermin King: Not Covid-19, but sinusitis and bronchitis. prescriptions and instructions to stay away from everyone for a week. let them know if I get worse

Vermin King: I still don't think I have it, but been doing run around trying to get in to see someone, somewhere about getting tested. If not The Virus, I still need to figure out what this is and get it knocked out

squirmydad: A friend of mine just came though it, it was awful. Hang in there pal.

Vermin King: Well, fever is back down, but zero energy
Apr 1, 2020 4:18:51 GMT -9
Vermin King: I wish I hadn't been curious. Hadn't taken my temperature for a few days, and I'm running a slight fever again. I'm so ticked off. I guess tomorrow I will have to do the nurse hotline. Sun on the Beach...
