Default David Kerin's Eastern Alliance Destroyer made entirely of paper

Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen,

Today I bring you another paper model. A friend of mine recently designed a paper model of the Eastern Alliance Destroyer using the mesh from David Kerin (Yes, David Kerin is credited for making the mesh for this ship).

Now, this is only an alpha build. The kit will be refined and there will be a few thing fixed as well.

Here are the photos of the finish model (of the alpha build).

If you would like to view the entire build thread, you can see it on www.zealot.com. Here is the link to the thread:

Not yet. I am not certain if that is one of the ones that is in the pipeline, but I would not be at all surprised if it were not.

The guy that make this model is working on a studio accurate (paper) model of the Colonial Viper (MK-I).

Wow, very well done (and time consuming….)

Thank you for the compliment!
Granted, paper models are a bit more time consuming than plastic, but then again, there is a great deal more work involved in paper modeling than there is in plastic modeling. With that being said, I still prefer building a paper model over a plastic model.
With (most) paper models (especially the SCI-FI), there are MANY that are free that you can just download off the internet and save them on your computer. So when you want to build one, you just print the template kit out and build it (and you still have the model saved on your computer). Not only that, but there are far more models available in paper, than there are in plastic (ESPECIALLY models for BSG).
With plastic model, if you frak something up, you stand a high chance that you can not fix it easily, as well as (possibly) looking at buying a brand new model (if that is even possible). With a paper model, if you frak something up, you can easily just print out another parts sheet and fix the problem, or if you need to start (COMPLETELY) over from the beginning (which I have done MANY times), you just print out the complete template and start over (which at that point, all that you are out, is just the ink, paper, and glue).

So if you are looking at getting into paper model building, I would say go for it!

Well, as they say, it looks good on paper, but...

Like I said, once the designer of the model finishes the revisions and clean-up, it will be made available for (FREE) download.
I will make an announcement when (and where) it is available!

Does this mean the Eastern Alliance is just a paper tiger?
