Paragon Cardmodels

Welcome  Modellers!

This website is dedicated to cardmodels created by James Gemperline (aka Paragon), and all derivitive works. 
For those of you unfamiliar with cardmodelling, it is the creation of models by printing on, cutting, and glueing cardstock (heavy paper).
Most of the models available on this website are of aircraft.  I try to make them relatively simple, to allow more people to build them, as well as make the construction process short and less painfully tedious.
 I am typically very open with my content.  My models are (for now) free, and I typically include "uncolored" versions of my models, for modelers who wish to customize my models.  I encourage everyone who creates a model from my files to share it with the rest of the cardmodelling community, especially myself, variety is never a bad thing when it comes to hobbies.
My only stipulation is that nobody use my models or files for commercial purposes in unassembled form.  I have no problem with the sale of constructed models, the profit in that case can be attributed to the manual labor spent on construction, but in any other form I strictly prohibit it unless you have my expressed permission.
That said, I hope you enjoy this site, and more importantly, my models.

Check out this post by Doug Drexler about one of my models.  His blog is particularly interesting for Star Trek fans, and fans of science fiction in general.

Of course, all the models available on this website are completely free.  The paper community has given me a lot, and this is one of the ways I help give back.

Sometimes as a college student I have trouble making ends meet.  I do have a job, but occasionally I find myself short on cash, and at those times, I usually have to sacrifice my hobby to spend time doing things that will earn money.  Any donations you care to make are greatly appreciated, and help me continue designing models (by supplying paper and ink, for example).

Donors also get special attention from me when suggesting new subjects.
