The Ephemeral Museum - 1957`s Chevy Monster 4X4 Paper Model
by James Catalano


My friend James Catalano, from Berwyn, Illinois, USA, created this cool 1957`s Chevy Monster 4X4, using two different free paper models: the monster truck wheels are from HP/SK Galeana and the body came from a model offered by German Bilsport Junior. You will find the links for both models right below, at the end of this post. James said: - "I just thought it would be cool to see a classic or muscle car turned into a 4X4 monster vehicle. Originally I wanted to make a 4X4 monster version of a 1967 Ford Shelby Mustang, but the ink ran out while printing it out. So I just had the 57 Chevy to work with."

Meu amigo James Catalano, de Berwyn, Illinois, EUA, criou este Chevy Monster 4X4 1957, usando partes de dois modelos de papel gratuítos: as rodas e os chassis são de um monster truck da HP/SK Galeana e a carroceria veio da alemã Bilsport Junior. Você vai encontrar o link para ambos os modelos logo abaixo, no final deste post. James disse: - "Eu apenas pensei que seria legal ver um carro clássico ou um muscle car transformado em uma espécie de monster truck 4x4. Originalmente eu queria fazer uma versão monster 4X4 de um Ford Mustang Shelby 1967, mas acabou a tinta durante a impressão, então, eu fiquei só com o Chevy 57 para trabalhar."

About the Ephemeral Museum:

I "am in the paper modeling" since 2005, although I've had contact with paper models from my childhood in the 1970s, via magazines that were sold sporadically in newsagents. I remember magazines with houses to build and dioramas/playsets of airports, western forts, nativity scenes and the like. With the advent of the internet what happened was simply a revival of the papercraft hobby for me and many other people of my generation. Today I am opening a new session here on the blog, the Ephemeral Museum , which is a place where I will show some of the models that I built all these years. I would also like this to be a space where all modelers friends could show their work, so if anyone wants to participate in this "museum", just send photos of your work and a few words, if you want, to the e-mail:

mautherous@gmail.com

All who submit their work will be published, without exceptions.


Eu "estou no papelmodelismo" desde 2005, embora eu já tivesse contato com modelos de papel desde minha infância, nos anos 1970, via revistas que eram vendidas esporadicamente em bancas de jornal. Lembro que haviam revistas com casas para montar e dioramas/playsets de aeroportos, fortes-apache, presépios e coisas do tipo. Com o advento da internet o que houve foi simplesmente um renascimento do hobby do papelmodelismo para mim e muitas outras pessoas de minha geração. Hoje eu estou inaugurando uma nova sessão aqui no blog, o Ephemeral Museum, que é um lugar aonde irei mostrar alguns dos modelos que eu construí em todos estes anos. Também gostaria que esse fosse um espaço aonde todos os amigos modelistas pudessem mostrar seus trabalhos, sendo assim, se alguém quiser participar deste "museu", basta mandar fotos de seu trabalho e algumas palavras para o e-mail abaixo:

mautherous@gmail.com

Todos que enviarem seus trabalhos serão publicados, sem exceções.
