Hobby Project

Posted: February 22, 2017 in Uncategorized

I get bored just writing my books so I have to have a diversion to keep my mind moving. Recently I was putting together Metal Earth steel models that are tiny and have tabs that hold the pieces together. Some were easy and some were frustrating, but I enjoyed making them. Recently, going through one of my external hard drives, I found a folder with some PDF prints of cars that I had bought but never made. They were to be printed on heavy paper, cut out, glued together to make a rather large model of some famous sports cars. I went back to the company that I bought them from, Visualspicer.com, and found a couple more models that I purchased. The one I’m working on now is the X-Wing fighter from Star Wars and it is going to be big. The body is over two feet long and quite detailed. The entire model is made from card stock paper, so I have to be careful handling the parts. Below are some photos I took in various stages of making the model.

This is not my model but it shows what it will look like when finished.


Here’s the printouts for the pieces to be assembled,


Here’s the nose of the fighter being assembled.


Here’s the body of the fighter, it’s over two feet long. I’m working on the wings now.


I don’t know this person, but it will give you an idea of the size of the model.


My next project after this is a huge R2D2.
