Card modelling is the construction of models from sheets of card on which the component parts are printed. The individual components require cutting out with a sharp knife or scissors, which are then scored and folded into shape. The skill of the designer enable quite complex and details models to be built without the time or expense of more traditional constructional methods.
Only the simplest of tools are required such as a sharp knife, scissors; a blunt pointed instrument used for scoring , such as a knitting needle or screwdriver; a ruler; a smooth cutting surface such as a rubberised cutting mat, and a suitable adhesive such as a white PVA or Aliphatic resin.
