This building paper model is a Union Railway Station, designed by Howard Lamey and Paul Race. This includes a papercraft template and a tutorial with detailed demonstration of the production and tips.
What You Will Need
Clean cardboard. For the building's walls, try to use something thick, but not corrugated, such as the backs of writing tablets. You'll probably want to use corrugated cardboard for the base, and maybe the roof and foundation. The cardboard I used for the pillars and trim was not very thick. In addition, for this project you'll need:
- A sharp mat knife or Xacto knife (or both)
- A stiff metal ruler
- Elmer's white Glue-All. A glue stick would also come in handy.
- Clear glitter.
- Several sheets of acid-free, non-yellowing, white bond paper
- Cardboard that is "corrugated" on one side only (for the "fluted" pillars).
- Flat white paint (flat latex interior wall paint is good) to prime the building (and give it the chalky feel of the original)
- Acrylic paint in the colors you plan to use for the station
- "Vellum" or other transparent or translucent medium for printing the door and window pattern (this is optional; the building in the photos shows windows printed on acid-free paper).
- Access to the Internet and a color printer
- Sand to add texture to the paint
- Several spring-type clothes pins to hold things together as the glue dries.
