Masterpieces in Paper

The latest edition of Toy Soldier Collector landed in my porch the other day and it didn't take me long to find something of interest within its pages

Spread out across pages 6 and 7 is a long letter written by Mr P Walker of the West Midlands [my neck of the woods] intriguingly entitled 'Paper Soldiers'. The subject matter of the letter is a website, which the writer was directed to by a friend when he was trying to find a suitable backdrop for photographing some of his medieval knights against

The site is hosted by Blogger and is essentially a 'one-stop-shop' for anyone interested in modelling pretty much anything in paper or card. The writer of the letter was delighted with the medieval castle he found through the site and, not only that, he was able to download a series of knights and men-at-arms models representing some of the soldiers that fought at Agincourt, models that he subsequently printed onto cartridge paper and constructed using a fairly minimal array of tools

Literally hundreds of sites are accessible through the blog providing a wide range of products from simple toys to superbly detailed and historically accurate representations of buildings, aircraft, tanks, soldiers and more

Why not take a look and judge for yourself? Happy hunting!
