Now, for something completely different! A detailed airplane model, made of card-stock kit (actually sold in the form of a "magazine").
I was building models of this kind when I was in late elementary school/early high school. That's the kind of things a nerdy teenager does, when computers aren't available. Because for me personally, they weren't. Still, I'm certain that this early interest has decisively influenced my focus on 3D forms.
I wonder, how popular such card-stock models are in different countries? For what I've seen, (and I may be wrong ) it's largely a speciality of Eastern & Central Europe. While we had plastic model kits too – the card stock reigned supreme, when it comes to the amount of models produced locally.
Compared to plastic kits, card stock ones require way more of diligent work, and patience. But the advantage is the low price, and lack of significant additional costs, such as special paints etc. They're certainly very time-consuming – but we in the more eastern parts of Europe never had our time prized too highly (if ya know what I mean...).
