Hello all, while surfing tonight I came across this Dutch site which apppears to offer "card models" and in their portfolio there are a number of Paddle Steamers. Mainly European in style with an emphasis on Dutch vessels.

My Dutch is not too hot but they ssem reasonable.

cheers

Jim

Cheers Jim,

One of my fellow club members often takes these card kits and rescales them on his computer - They then make an excellent basis as plans. He uses Balsa plated with plastic-card for the hull and uses the card templates for all the superstructure and fittings, It's amazing some of the things he manages to turn out using this technique!

Hmmm what a great idea...as plans!

I create model card buildings for my miniature war games...i end up needing alot of carboard though! But I'd say I'm pretty good at card models!

Here are three more paper model suppliers who seem to have a good range of ships.
