  • Avanti models, homemade.

    Here is a cluster of photos of two cardboard Avanti models that I designed and built. They are each about 9 inches long. I apologize for the small size of the images. These are from scans that were made of photographs of my models. I did not have editable images of these models in an uploaded photo software program.

      Anyway, here some of the build photos, as one of these was being constructed. Interiors take as much time to build as the bodies.

        Building the exterior. I call it "strip-and-panel" construction. A strip of cardboard is glued between two profile shaped panels, to form the body component. The body components are then glued together to compose the whole body: usually a center section flanked by two side sections. I use the type of lightweight 1/32" cardboard usually found on the backs of writing tablets.

          Wheel construction, mounting in center section, and adding of side pontoon.
