Paper Models - A Whole World O' Fun!
 
 
When I first heard of paper models I can tell you that I pictured everything except what it actually was even though the name should be self explanatory!
Paper models are the models created from sheets of paper. Paper modeling is a broad term which also includes; card modeling and origami. Card modeling is the craft of making scale models from sheet card. Origami is the ancient craft and art of paper folding to make an animal or model of sorts.
 
Printed card models were highly used in the early twentieth century. This industry boomed during World War II because paper was not considered at the time as a concern for trees so the production of paper was not heavily regulated like it is now. Later Plastic models became so famous that interest from paper models decreased. The advantage of plastic models was that they come in small kits and are less likely to tear or break like paper.  The availability of down loading the designs and printing them out has stunted the sales of paper models. You can buy the kits from many different sites online for a reasonable price. You can also now buy software for your computer that can help you design paper models to print off on your own at home; Adobe illustrator, 3DS Max, Rhino 3D etc.

The most common things created out of paper crafts are buildings, animals, ship, aircrafts and monuments. In the twentieth century, paper crafts were even used to build the king’s and queen’s face. The design of a paper model is created by using paper prototyping. They are created with the use of computers so that time is saved at every stage of design and production. Another advantage is the cost, paper is still relatively in expensive and the computer is able to modify the existing paper model designs to create new ones.

Paper modeling is famous all over the world and although you can use technology to create your designs making them your self can be a real fun thing to do especially with your kids!  Online you can choose from a variety of sites that specialize in paper models; the card model shop specializes in paper models you can print off, Digital navy is another shop which deals only with naval ships in paper from World War II and before they are all designed by Roman Detny, Dolittle Raid specializes in B-25B card models, Lbirds.com offers in paper all of the aircrafts of World War II, Walden model makes the ship kits and prototype sell kits for all prototype cars. 

The technique of putting together paper models can be tricky or easy depending on the paper model to be used. People, statues, aircrafts and models of all types can be easily designed through the use of paper modeling. There are user’s guides available online and in stores to show you the steps to cut the paper in the right way and then how to roll those parts to fit together and make the model. Paper modeling is very creative and very fun to work with and people of all ages love to do it and it’s definitely a step above making a paper airplane!
