Default Scratch Built Medusa Siege Tank

As I promised, here it it. For anyone who would like to know, I seal these tanks with 3 layers of matte varnish. It hardens them up like plastic, so in theory you could paint them too.

Dont get too excited chaps, this is just a file you download cut out the shapes and stick them together,unless the poster was the one who designed the downloadable templates its really no more impressive than gluing a model kit together, though i will say his are particulary neat models, just google papercraftsquare 40k, there are even coloured paper kits to print these days.

Is there a particular type of card to use or could you use cereal packet card? I'm looking to make a zsu23-4 type turret for my chimera as I think the hydra flak model is fugly

Personally i would transfer the plans onto platicard and make the turret out of plastic, you would have to make some adjustments to the plans as far as i can tell they are designed to be used with paper as they have glue flaps ,but nothing to taxing for a model maker.

I use cardstock, usually triple layered on most of my tanks. I have considered plasticard, however the issue one runs into is the layering of details. I suppose if I was to build one out of plasticard, I would need to make adjustments to the original templates.
