Default The Cardstock Quick Challenge - 1st Edition

First I would like to thank Dave (Cruikshank) who reminded me how good a card/paper model can look.

The last challenge I started wasn't very successful (The 2006 Kitbashing Experience), I'm hoping this one might have a larger appeal and include a greater number of members in order to share some creative work. So the last one had almost a year timespan and I think most of the people forgot it very soon, this time let's make it quick, hence the title! And let's make it simple and cheap, if this one has success maybe we can issue a few more.

And the rules are:

Deadline:
15 January 2007 - it's a 45 day challenge!

Objective:
Make a structure out of paper/cardstock
It can be any scale and any size
You can use other materials as long as paper is the main one (Ex. clear styrene for glass and matchsticks for posts!
It can be included on a diorama or not, your choice!
If you don't feel inspired you can even use an available design (Ex. Fiddlers Green), of course originals would be more appreciated!
This challenge is only for new structures, not yet started or already started but only halfway trough


I would consider this one a success if at least 5 of our members would contribute, it can be as simple as a shack or as complex as a station, you choose!

So, are you in?

I'm in Nelson.

Just so happens I am working on a building plan right now that I was thinking about doing mainly in card.

45 days huh? OKAY!

Do we have to start now or can we finish a previous project?

Glad to have you in Rich, judging from your previous work I'm sure it'll look great.

David, has long as it's only aprox. 50% done then it's acceptable to enter it in the challenge, if it's almost finished then it would be great to have it on a separate thread.

Looking forward to that ideas K&K railway!

Nelson,

I am working in N scale, and I want to use castings for windows and stairs, If this is a no go, I will rethink my plan. (might make it easier, but not as finished looking)

This is the incentive I was missing to build an engine shed for my loco. 45 days is a reasonable time lapse to start from zero (yes, it will be a 100% scratchbuilding, including design).

Although paper would be the best choice I think it's perfectly acceptable to use a few castings, and it's the best way to accommodate as much projects as possible.

Looking forward to that engine shed Roberto.

Hi Nelson,
I started to work on the project. Parts are already designed, only missing the roof and some interior details. Hope to produce something in the nexty days.
I was wondering if it's allowed to post some work in progress or only the finished work...
