how did I do?
more like ro/po/cop lmao gottem

be more confident in your folding, use the back of your nail if needs be, prevents it from bending out around the edges
Thanks for the advice. Took it up again after a few years
Really cool, OP! I love the act of making paper models but I'm just terrible at it. If anyone has tips or tutorial links I would appreciate it. Perhaps I'm starting with models that are too difficult? Where should I concentrate to build my skills?
Well what did you try first?

I started on PaperizedCrafts website doing their simple little anime models the make, good introduction with videos of each step to get the hang of it, experience comes with time and eventually you'll be doing models without instructions cuz you can work it out

You could try doing something from Ninjatoes or Kaizopapercraft too as they have relatively simple models and good instructions

Captcha: AGAY lol
I tried a Russian (seems like most of the models I can find are Russian or Polish) military vehicle. It came out okay but I didn't really know what I was doing as the instructions were all in Russian. I did my best to try and figure out what I was supposed to do using the limited help I could get from pictures in the instructions.
Thank you so much for the suggestions. I will work on something cool tonight!
oh man yeah military vehicles are all pretty hard lol, i dont fuck with those really.

theres facebook groups and the majority of people seem to be doing vehicles if you wanna try and find one of those.
thos guys are all anime or video game stuff but I feel its a good place to start for getting habits and skills
I've made an ambulance, a Mario figure, and a square (cube?) version of Early Cuyler from Squidbillies. Each one has been better than the last so I'm definitely improving. One issue I'm experiencing is squeeze out from excess glue. Do you use a brush of some sort or perhaps foam to apply the glue to prevent this? I'm using Aleene's Clear Gel Tacky Glue as I read that it's good for papercraft.

I also downloaded a load of papercraft on Pinterest and some from deviantart.
Made a tiny book today, going to make more so I can build a mini library.
Good call with Pinterest. I usually forget it even exists but I just did a search and found tons of models.
usually i use my finger to wipe the glue onto the tab so its not so much, i have tape strips on my table I can wipe my finger on then lol, qtips are goot for cleanup too, I have some gundam ones that are hard and pointy I like to use.

I use tacky glue too, i only ever rememeber it because gold and purple bottle
I'm getting better at this. I *almost* completed a Herbie the Love Bug model but ended up ripping it when I foolishly decided to use CA to bond two tiny parts that were different to hold together. I figured it would be easier to do it that way so that it would dry quickly and then use regular glue for the rest. It did work well until I pulled back my finger which somehow got itself stuck to the paper. I won't do that again.

This is a very fun hobby.
get yourself a tweezer set, i have a few bent ones for purposes of holding stuff together
