If the model is made of paper I can only say fantastic. Why do I just use brass, silver, plastic and wood?

My thought about modeling materials: It's not what you use; it's how you use it. A good modeler can make equally good models from metal, wood, plastic, or paper.

On the other hand, some materials are more efficient to use for producing some items. Example: It takes days to build up a truck tire from paper and every tire is, essentially, a master. On the other hand, once you've created a master from any material and make a mold, it takes minutes to cast a dozen copies of it in resin.

Correction: I could get a LASER to the cut the paper. Here is an example of a 1:24 scale laser cut paper model. -- Russ

Holy cow, that is incredible!
