These models of paper were constructed by Jay Phillips specifically to demonstrate that children can begin their modeling in a simple and inexpensive way. He conducted a session for kids at the Lone Tree Exhibit as well as displaying the models.
Jay downloaded all eight of the models shown from the Internet. They are flat, printed sheets which must be cut out carefully and glued to assemble the models. There are many, many paper models available from suppliers through the Internet, and very few are of the kind pictured here. There are serious paper modelers, like Jay, who search out models of far more sophisticated assemblies. Jay is in the process of a 3-foot model of the German battleship, Bismarck.
