    Paper Model Studebaker GT Hawk

    I designed this yesterday over the course of two hours, from the first pencil line, to inking it in, to Xeroxing it, to scanning it, and correcting it in Microsoft Paint. It's roughly 1:24 scale.

    I remember when the Volvo 140 series came & I thought they must have used only ruler & axe to design it, now I understand how they did it...

    Great job! I've had my therapy for the day!

    I might suggest two additiional tabs at the end of the fenders to hold the front end piece on.

    Well then, this is something! I wager the only way to outdo this would be if I come up with a reasonably accurate origami GT Hawk. Fantastic work!

    Nick,

    This is fantastic!

    Are you going to be at the International Meet in Tacoma? I would like to meet you.

    Do I have your permission to write a brief note on one side of the paper on how you came up with this and copy the jpg? If I can, I would like to give that to my newsletter editor so everyone would have the story on one side then could cut out the model and build it on the other side.

    Thanks

    This is pretty cool. Thanks! It took me longer to change the color than for you to design.
    I made a few minor "trim" changes too. My printer is evidently running out of yellow and black. I had to hand color the tires with a pen.

    Has anyone had this printed on heavy paper like card stock? Is it easy to work if you have it printed on card stock? I have not made it yet but I am wondering if card stock is better.

    I think these would be great table decorations for our banquet in January but making 80 plus models I am thinking of using card stock.

    Yes, my blue one is on heavy gloss cote photo paper. As long as your printer can handle it and you can cut it out anything should work.

    I was planning to do a Champ or Transtar next. I'm sorry I didn't know about the Tacoma meet. Thank you for letting me know about the tabs--I thought I had left them on when editing my model, but apparently not. I would be honored to see it reproduced. (Especially if you'd be willing to send me a copy)

    I am one-third of the way through designing a 1960 Lark Convertible, and a 1963 Avanti.

    I did that one above on my phone while out of town so I couldn't see how small it was! I did a little searching and found a whole bunch of similar models plus a bigger one of the Crumb on Pinterest:
