Still alive

Hi,

Just thought I'd post a quick update to say I'm not dead. Thankyou for the concern though.

I've not retired either from Paper Model making, I'm just CRAZY busy with my job, working practically 8 day weeks (the fact I've had to take a few days off with exhaustion shows how bad it's been getting). I wish I could spend more time on my heroes as I miss being able to make them.

Glad there are folks over at Deviantart carrying on my legacy while I can't and love seeing what they're doing with them.

That said, I have been working on a new model recently (the said time off helped) that I hope to have up some time over the next couple of weeks. For all those wanting someone for your X-Men to fight against the next update should be right up your street ;)

Thanks for your patience + sorry about the lack of anything going on over here.

Xavier

I've ALMOST finished my next model... and now my printers broke :| so may have to get a regular whos made them all so far to test it out for me to check it works.

I'l warn you all now, it's going to require a LOT more paper than my other models ;) hehehe

Been restructuring latest model a bit for extra size and support. My last build had too little structure to support itself properly made out of paper. I've segmented it more and its working better now though...
Here's a WIP if anyones curious.
