The Ephemeral Museum - Lanchester Armored Car - by Fiddlers Green
Assembled by Papermau


This is the paper model version of the WWI`s Lanchester Armored Car, created by North American designer Scott Fyn, from Fiddlers Green website. Mr.Fyn passed away some years ago and his website is offline, but his work, ranging from aircraft, vehicles and architecture, remains appreciated and revered in papercraft forums around the world. I built this Lanchester Armored Car more them eight years ago. I used two layers of transparent PVA glue, which after drying gave the model a shiny appearance, and leave the paper harder as plastic.


Esta é a versão em papel do Carro Blindado Lanchester, da Primeira Guerra Mundial, criação do designer norte-americano Scott Fyn, do site Fiddlers Green. O Sr. Fyn faleceu há alguns anos e seu website está offline, mas seu trabalho, que vai de aeronaves, veículos e arquitetura, continua sendo apreciado e reverenciado em foruns de papercraft de todo o mundo. Eu passei duas demãos de cola de PVA, que depois de secas deram ao modelo um aspecto brilhante, além de deixar o papel ficar duro como plástico.


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.
