In this video I show the relation between two-dimensional surfaces and three-dimensional forms by scaling down a monobloc chair manually.

these are the essential steps:

1. copying surfaces of the chair using paper
2. unrolling the surfaces
3. digitalizing the surfaces (digicam)
4. redrawing and scaling the photos
5. printing drawings
6. cutting and bending surfaces back to form

Take any object you like and try it yourself. Its fun and will teach you the basics of paper-modelmaking

Hi, brilliant. I'm intending to make car models with paper and this technique will help me with irregular surfaces like the hood and the fenders. Could You release the normal speed version of this video ? or make another object but with details ? I think the understanding of step 2 (unrolling and cutting and preparing for digitalizing ) is crucial for the success of this technique. I beg your pardon for my English. Thanks for sharing.

Wire Tree Tutorial – Model Modelmaking Skills / Paper / From 5 months ago   11:44

Building fantastic looking and very realistic trees from scratch doesn’t have to be hard and I’ll show you just how easy it really is.

This tree will look fantastic on any model railroad, war gaming terrain or a display diorama and it will add life to any layout.

Follow along as I step you through the process I use to create this great looking apple tree. The great part is you can still manipulate the tree to change its shape even after you’ve completed it. It’s a time consuming process but the results are well worth the time and effort.

This particular tree is in HO scale, the wire I used scales down well to N scale and it’s simple to use thicker gauge wire to model in the larger scales.
