scratchbuild ship railings with paper

Take two identical 30 degree knife blades, make sure they are held firmly against each other and insert them into a plastic handle.




Then, use this custom-made knife to cut along a ruler, thin laserprint paper is recommended as inkjet paper delaminates easily. Make sure the ends are not detached from the bulk of the paper.



Then comes the clever part, insert a wooden plank to pull the stripes tight, in order to attach the vertical columns




Attaching the vertical columns are best aided with a ruler to help making the intervals constant, the protruding parts can be trimmed later.





End result:




Comparison with Lasercut rails:


As seen here, the scratchbuilt rails gives a more 3d look, and does not have dark edges like the lasercut ones. --But still, colouring is always an option

Handrails for ladders can be made with the same method, only now cutting curves:


The thickness of the railing can be easily controlled by inserting a thin piece of metal between the blades.


Effect:

Hello King,
now this is what I would call a genuis novelty. And so easy. Thanks for that!

Cheers

Hi King,

thank you for sharing your great innovation producing paper railings.

You are one of those guys who deserve a star on the walk of paper fame!

Hi King,

i like to share my first try to make a railing using your method! They are not as perfect as yours but the result is my first try!

I will use your method to make the railings for my noworosijsk (that means 3,5 m railings!).

By the way, i have the impression, that that sort of paper is important (100 g/m² would be good; thicker or thinner is not).

Hello King,
absolutley simple , effective, cheap and reproduceable. That is the kind of stuff cardmodellers like to see.

Best regards

Many thanks to the kind comments. I had always regarded cardmodeling as a process of creation, it's not the tools that matter, but rather to use them to their full effects.
The choice of paper depends on the scale of the model, from what I have tried 100-200g paper works well on 1/400 or 1/250 models. 1/200 models might need relatively heavier paper, eg 180-200g. Again the horizontal and vertical rails can be made with different paper weights for mechanical strength and stability. --Thanks again for the support.

Welcher Klingenhalter?

Hallo,

diese Methode erscheint mir genial, doch ich habe dabei ein Problem:
Welcher Klingenhalter ist geeignet, gleichzeitig 2 Klingen parallel und fest einzuspannen?
Ich benutze im Moment einen Skalpellgriff aus Metall für meine Lieblingsklinge 11, der hält aber ausschließlich nur 1 Klinge.
Bitte um Hinweise, möglichst konkret und bereits getestet, damit ich eine gezielte Beschaffung einleiten kann. Möchte diese Technik zu gerne auch mal selbst probieren.

Viele Grüße

Hallo Papiertiger,
ich habe es eben mit einem " Teppichbodenmesser " probiert, weil die Klingen durch das Zusammenschrauben der beiden Griffhälften fixiert werden, geht das sogar mit 3 Klingen. Die Klingen müssen scharf und der Karton nicht zu weich sein.
Viele Grüße, deteringgase!

Just to add, the first time in using this technique, the paper rails might snap during cutting. The solution is instead of cutting the rails out in one go, one can make a shallow cut all the way, and then cut again so that the string seperates. This way the rails are less likely to break.

Hello king-san,

From the ancient time Chinese people have ingenuity and we Japanese risk all dangers to go to China across the water for those invention. Now I am lucky to obtain your innovation kicking chair in front of PC.
Thank you for sharing your great innovation

Ich habs mal in einem billigem 1-DM Messerchen aus Plastik probiert.
2 Klingen gingen recht gut durch, man musste etwas nachhelfen, aber kein Problem. Einziger Nachteil an dem Billigteil ist nur, dass die Klingen in Hochrichtung nicht gut fixiert sind, aber zum probieren passts.

Da hätte ich die Frage, wer hat ein solches Teppichmesser oder Abbruchklingenmesser, bei denen die Klinge(n) fest fixiert sind ?

Papierreling schneiden

Moin Kartonbauer

da sieht man einen weiteren, fast unschätzbareren Vorteil unseres Forums.

Ich meine die völkerverbindende Wirkung wie sie sich in dem Schreiben von unserem japanischen Mitglied, Yu Gyokuban, an das chinesische Mitglied king darstellt.

Ach wären doch die hohen Herren der Regierungen aller Welt auch Kartonbauer
