Well friends!

Here it is the construction test of the next model that will be available for download in the site Paper Commander. Without a doubt a classic piece: The cargo ship Clydesdale of the game Wing Commander II. This model is special why is the first model of a lot also that Standoff Project. Eder kindly gave up me to create physical replicas. When ready the file will be distributed in a combo of three scales: 1/200, 1/700 and 1/1000. :):D

The sequence of pictures display the sub assemblies of the version 1/200. and some pictures of the model 1/1000 concluded.

I take advantage to thank openly for the kindness Eder and I hope other modders has interest in joining to the project Paper Commander in the sense of they create models of their creations. :rolleyes:

Clydesdale 1/1000

It is now pictures of the version 1/1000, this small scale is ideal for table games and as comparison pattern with other larger ships than I intend to accomplish in this scale. It is exactly the same model 1/200 however with scale reduction.

Cool it's a pocket Rocket!!! WooooHooo!! :) Very Awesome tho, that's something that I'm no good at is doing the paper models...Old school for sure :)

Cry some more!
Parabéns, cara!
O modelo ficou excelente! Eu nunca conseguiria montar algo tão pequeno e detalhado assim.

Great work! I agree with Ninja that the 1/1000th has a lot of potential for tabletop. Would be neat to see someone come up with a capship tabletop using your 1/1000th scale models!
 
Awsome, I highly doubt I could have ever tried to make the designs for those paper models.... I can't wait to try to build it when its available for download.

Thank you friends!

Today or tomorrow I should post more some pictures of the construction of the version 1/200 of Clydesdale.

As for the use of models for "wargames" is an idea that for me is very nice. However the scale 1/1000 is not for the whole ship type, ships with 100, 200 and 300 meters would be respectively with 10,20 and 30 cm of length, it would be necessary to think in larger scales for capital ships as 1/5000 and 1/10000 or larger (Artillery Cruiser Plunkket Class has 10000 meters for instance) for fighters scales as 1/400 and 1/500 are interesting also.

Wargame miniatures are meant to be representational, not absolute. Infantry models especially don't match the implied scale from their respective game's fluff. That and Wing Commander isn't known for a system of absolute scale, either. I think it would be reasonable to use different scales for different tiers of ships. Fighters could have a very large scale ship to represent a squadron, while a Kilrathi dreadnaught could use a very small scale ship so that it can fit in the same playing space as fighters. Best way to describe it is how Micromachines handled their sci-fi spaceship lines (they had Star Trek shuttles bigger than their Borg cubes, for example).

Yes it is exactly as soon as leaning, I had been studying some scales for that and leaning that is possible to use the scale 1/500 for the fighters. For larger ships 1/5000 to 1/10000 depending on the "real" size, As soon as possible I will test to do a Dralthi and a Rapier in this scale (1/500).

Mr. Standoff
Great job, Péricles, I'm specially amazed by the smaller models, as I told you via e-mail... the talent it takes to build these models at such a small scale, and still keep all the details... very nice! Parabéns. :D

Well, my plastic models are at 1/5000, so a Yorktown is about 5 inches. Actually, the reason I started with them is the thought of a table top game. Nice wok on the paper models, at any rate.

Eder!

Thank you very much! Without you that model and others that will come would not be possible...

Haliwali I am still studying appropriate scales, but I lean to think basically depends on the size for a table game and even of the own board of that game.

In some days the conclusion of big "Clyd" and soon it will be available for download...

Can't wait to see the others - and feel free to tell me when you run out of models, I still owe you many others that I haven't found in my mess of backup discs yet. :p

As I wrote her through email, probably the next projects in relation to models Standoff are Venture and Stilleto, that are already in advanced unfolding state in Pepakura... Well and I am waiting for the other ships with anxiety hehehehe!
:D

Well glentemans present the final steps of the construction of Clydesdale. In this sequence of pictures we see some aspects of the final assembly. The model in the scale 1/200 is big, the size does with that it is needed some cares and techniques mainly for not leaving openings and many white corners, that in general are filled out with scraps of the textures of a second set of impression of the model done in paper of finer thickness.

An interesting size comparison, with the escort and with the aggressor in the sun and in the guard of the bed hehehe! And in my lap. The complete model is with 34 cm of length.:cool:Even the planners commit mistakes, I had to paint whatering job in a nose for having atmospheric reentered burn to hide an opening and a blurry of glue... :rolleyes:

An interesting scale comparison the model 1/1000 is completely tiny close to Clydesdale in the scale 1/200.

Well it would be that! The model in the three scales will be available for download on Sunday the night in the schedule of Brazil (GMT -3) probably among 22 and 23 hours in the site Papercommander...

Cheers and bye! :p
