I realize this is probably an advanced model, but this definitely makes me want to get into papercraft so I can work my way up to assembling something like this.

This is a rather complex model for a beginner. I'd suggest finding something easier to build first, it'll save some frustration. There are plenty of sites and forums filled with models and detailed, friendly advice.

Card stock thicker than regular paper is recommended. :P You'll have to experiment with different paper glues to find one you are most comfortable with.
Study the parts alongside the instructions. Make sure you know where to fold and glue before you actually do. Most important of all though, try not to rush. Take your time and have fun!

Haha thanks :D

I think I might one day try and build something, whenever I have the time. 
But yeah, this is too complex for a first build. Especially because I am not very patient XD
I'll just buy a Normandy model, and perhaps I'll try and build a different model some day! 
Thanks so much :)

She looks great Draconis! Well done!
Hahaha, yea, those wheel assemblies on the Mako can be a pain. Particularly because of the repetition.

With small models like this I actually just use normal printer paper. Of course the downside is that the models are a lot more flimsy and damage easily.
Regarding those white edges, what many people do is remove the glue tabs entirely, and use small scraps of paper at the back of the two parts that get joined. That way you have the two edges on the same level and the "step" effect is gone. I have seen some people do this so well, that you can't even notice the seam.

This is such an amazing model and I finally managed to build it using your sheets. :D It's here: [link]
I'm actually annoyed too that a lot of the white parts are showing, but that's probably because I use quite a thick paper. I think it's double the normal thickness, so 160 gsm, but I can't remember anymore. Maybe I should use less thick paper, what do you think?

Also I'm curious how do you build a model that looks really clean without the white edges? I really don't want to color it because then I would need to match the marker's colors to any model I build. ^^; This isn't very practical I think.

I'm still building your Mako btw. =P I have the main hull finished, but I'm so damn scared to start with those 6 wheels! Looks really tiresome to build them.

thanks! It was a lot of fun, but I'm a little disappointed in myself at how much white is visible. Maybe it's the thickness of my paper...

:iconthunderchildftc:
ThunderChildFTC Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Nah, your paper thickness makes the model sturdy.
You could look into edge-coloring. Many people use colored markers, paint or pencils to hide the white edges.

:iconmissproblemchild:
missproblemchild Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012  Student Photographer
hmm okay. Yeah, that's always bothered me so much, because when there's edges I can see white stripes everywhere. I tend to use 28 lb paper (sometimes glossy). I like the thickness, but maybe coloring is exactly what I should do.

Of course another idea is to cut and remove the glue tabs entirely, Use a piece of scrap paper underneath the two parts being joined. Done right, you won't even notice the seam. I've seen the pros do this with spectacular results.

missproblemchild Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2012  Student Photographer
oh wow. I think that would work with bigger models but not the tiny ones. I use toothpicks to smooth the glue tab edges, but I'll remember that when Im building larger ones. I actually have a question, not sure if you'd know anything about it, but I'm completely obsessed with these vintage paper crafts from "Illustreret Familie Journal". There's a whole dollhouse model that was published, but I only have a couple of the pieces I found on this italian blog. I tried searching for the others with no luck /: Have any idea where I might find them?

Not a clue. You're gonna have to try some of the forums and ask there. ;)
These smaller models do have a bit of difficulty hiding the seams. :D

Hello egbvallejo
I also live in an apartment and don't have space for large models. ;) This Normandy is 17cm long once built.
I'm not sure anyone has noticed, but I designed the page to print perfectly on A4 AND letter size paper!

Hello my name is Hector and I'm from Argentina, I wish to know if there is a possibility that this model is carried to an extent of about 3 feet, because I'm interested in making this model a lot but on a larger scale, i from and appreciate your possible answer and I apologize for my bad English.

Greetings from Argentina

Hello Hector! This model will not scale up very well to the size you are looking for because the textures will not look very good.
There is another designer called sjsquirrel over at zealot.com who is working on a large, much more detailed SR2 and that model is going to be epic!

In the meantime you can always check out daishihun's SR1 model here: [link]
