After accidentally buying a copy of 2nd Ed online last month, I've built a Leman Russ and a Chimera out of cardboard, drinking straws, IDE cables and cocktail sticks for the Hazzard 1977th to make them codex compliant enjoy!

They look awesome! Did you find a pattern online and just shrink it down?

Thanks guys, a close inspection will reveal a fair few mistakes ;-) but from two feet away they look pretty good!

@cloudcaptain – yes, it was an Eli Patoroch template for both, shrunk down – drinking straws for guns and Zrunelord's IDE cable tracks, which look great at this scale

Are his models still available? Seems like most of the links have been shut down.

Great work SG,
Glad to have been of help.
I had done those in 28mm but in 1/72nd that must
taken some serious card bending 😁
You should look up Danbear's 15mm scale card dreadnought some years back also.
Eli's card models are excellent & one should subscribe to their yahoo group as they post updates from time to time.

@marc at work- thank you! @Todd636 there are plenty of mirror sites, Google paperhammer and see where it takes you- papercraftsquare is a good reliable place. @Zrunelord, praise from the master is praise indeed! Thanks man, I'll check that out :-)
