ok so ive been toying with the idea of taking paper models to a larger scale, ive mentioned it to people before and they always think its a good idea but the n i get the obvious "whats the point?" question.
well to be honest im only gonna do it because i can!
ive been working at a large format printers for a few years and have access to some very nice and very large printers and materials, although i know that making lifesize paper models isnt viable (they'll crush under there own weight!) there is a possibility to make a large frame work under the skin so to speak and then mount the paper to card and mount the card to the frame!! simples!! (i hope)
so as ive pretty much talked myself into doing it does anyone see a use for lifesize paper models?
im thinking advertising - shows - displays that sort of thing.
flat pack, light weight and easy to transport models for a show could be usefull but im not sure to who!
anyhow when i get the print time and the right project ill give it a go and see what pitfalls lie ahead, could be fun (may be a lifesize disaster!) but hey we live and learn right!!
