International Space Station (in Paper)
I am the ghost of Christmas past...
It’s been three or four years since I posted anything here, mainly because I don’t build models anymore.
That said, for reasons still unclear to me, I decided to build a 1:100 model of the ISS in paper, actually 90 and 110 gsm card (UK weights), as a Lockdown project between December 2020 and June 2021.
The model is by AXM https://www.axmpaperspacescalemodels.com/ and has to be downloaded and the sheets printed as required. There are more than 100 of these and 700 pages of online pictorial instructions. Some parts are a free download but the main structure file cost $25USD, or about £19GBP (Paypal).
The model is about a metre by 60 cms and about 50 cms deep. It’s displayed here on a homemade base and supports but can be lifted off these. It weighs about the same as a bottle of beer.
