I have my signature digitised and this is added to the appropriate point in each letter. So what's new? Nothing, except that this is the method that works for me and has reduced my 'outward bound' costs to only the cost of the dial-up fax and I save however many days it would have taken for the letter to have reached the supplier.

International Reply Coupons were originally developed to cover the cost of a return letter. Thus I could send Bob Bell or Myles a letter with an IRC and they could each exchange the IRC at their post offices for the relevant stamps for a reply, even if the local air mail postage charges, comparing exchange rates, were different. Back in the dim dark days it used to be that one IRC equalled sea-mail return and four IRCs were needed for an airmail reply. You buy these as you would a bank draft.

There is a charge, usually a percentage of the value of the money order. Recipients of money orders can exchange them at most post offices or deposit them into a bank. Having said all that, I still will generally use my faxed credit card details, although I would be reluctant to send this information to certain countries.

I have no doubt at all that within a few weeks my bill would show all sorts of charges from all sorts of exotic locations. My fall back in this case would be to use bank drafts. Everyone agreed that using a credit card was the best and quickest method. But there are some vendors overseas out there who do not process credit card orders, and they will accept payment only by a check or bank draft drawn in their own foreign currency, or an international money order IMO from the United States Postal Service USPS.

Who was right? Who was wrong? If anyone has updated information, please comment. The former Trust Territories of the United States are the only countries accepting the domestic postal money order from the United States. Christopher St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. This form says it will take a maximum of 4 to 6 weeks for the IMO to arrive at its destination. Bartholomew, St. Martin French , St. Now for some examples. This form is orange-pink in color, and is just like a regular money order in format.

It has been about ten years since I have last used one, but I believe that the process goes like this. They calculate the exchange rate of the currency. You pay the employee, and fill out a form instructing where the IMO shall be sent. That information is sent to a processing center where the IMO is issued in the foreign denomination and then mailed to it's destination.

If the process still works like that, then I would assume that it is still slow, since the IMO-2 has to be processed at a central facility. At least the IMO-2 is issued in the foreign currency so that you don't have to worry about any currency fluctuations whilst in transit. Hope this clears things up! Please if you have any comments especially experiences pertaining to the 'Authorization to Issue an International Money Order form set' please post them.

Hopefully this information can be posted to the FAQ file. Finally here is the link for the Universal Currency Translator just in case you want to know how much that kit costs where ever you are.

The genesis of the group was Jack Graham, who in June began collecting e-mail addresses of persons interested in corresponding about paper models. Within a few months, that group had grown so much that informal arrangements were no longer sufficient, and King Butler stepped in and set up the automated list. Much of the contents of this FAQ came from this source.

The list membership includes builders, collectors, designers, and retailers, spread over 15 countries, comprising a wide range of expertise, experience, and interests. Beginners to the paper modeling hobby and experienced modellers are both welcome. If you get a message to this effect when you try to join, please contact King Butler and ask him to put you on the waiting list. He tells me that it's usually a short wait.

This list differs from the Cardmodel-L list in that there is more commercial content. In particular, manufacturers, designers, and dealers are encouraged to post information about new items, special offers, et cetera.

There is no limit on the number of members to this list. To subscribe to the list, send an email message to majordomo teuton. You will shortly receive a message with instructions on how to confirm your subscription. Once you've done that, you'll be subscribed to the CardModelers list. The list is also available in digest form, see Saul Jacobs' page for more information. Papermodels mailing list The papermodels mailing list is hosted at eGroups.

Books and booklets In addition to the books listed here, see the Bibliography appendix, which lists a variety of sources less general, or more obscure, than the ones described here.

The general idea is that good basic references be listed here, preferably ones in print or at least still circulating copies are in existence.

Less general or more obscure citations are in the appendix. However, as always, actual practice is a little arbitrary and subject to editorial whims.

ISBN Previous edition published as Cardboard engineering with scissors and paste. His interest stretches back to his boyhood, and over the ensuing years he had a great influence on card modeling both as a practitioner and a promoter.

Deason was a regular contributor to a wide range of British modeling magazines, principally those of the old Model and Allied Publications MAP stable, and especially "Scale Models".

At one time he was editor of the company's "Model Cars" magazine, and I certainly recall his articles in "Model Boats". His major work was a book published in called "Cardboard Engineering with Scissors and Paste", which was reprinted in under the title "Simple Cardboard Models". Ninety per cent of the book is devoted to scratch building and covers road and rail vehicles, ships, etc, and usually also dealt with motorising the models, where this was feasible.

Curiously, there is no mention of aircraft. Deason was a contemporary of Micromodels' Geoffrey Heighway -- indeed, in the book he has a photograph of a small car model which he made from three business cards and "which was the prototype for a Micromodels model".

His scratch modeling tips were brilliant. I have never found anything to match his method of producing wire-spoked wheels for sports and racing car models. Deason was also a great advocate of jigs - for all sorts of jobs. His construction guide for the wheels, great and small, of a traction engine is particularly impressive.

In other words, the end result should be satisfying for the constructor in terms of his or her ability at that time. He did not condemn the neophyte whose skills did not match a more advanced builder. But he always encouraged builders to learn more. And this is the great advantage of the book: no matter what your skill level, there is sure to be something in it that you will learn.

For example, the gum-strip technique for shaping the very complex hull shape of the Paddle Tug "Anglia" is not something a first-time builder would be wise to undertake, yet would be a very appealing new method for compound curve shapes for someone with reasonably advanced skills to try. Deason did not like the simple 'cut-out'. If the original of the component being modeled was three-dimensional, then insofar as it was possible for it to be so, the model must be, too. Yet sometimes his modeling instructions seem to say the opposite.

It was really a clever inspirational ploy. YOU were encouraged to try adding a bit more. In the instructions for his model River Clyde puffer, the deckhouse has only card cut-out windows. However, a builder, having reached that stage, and having developed a level of self confidence, would hardly resist adding clear plastic or cellophane "window panes" this modeler included. Deason seemed content to model almost anything but equally it is clear that ships were a great love.

In he released "Cardboard Ship Models" which details construction methods for three model boats that ranged from a very simple destroyer to a reasonably complex coastal ferry. Indeed, I recall an article in "Model Boats" July in which he outlined construction of a model boat SY Cardella which then was fitted with a live steam engine.

His goal was to sail the boat across the particular lake, and as I recall the venture succeeded. Model and Allied Publications either changed owners or names or both in the early 90s and now trades under the name of Nexus Publications. I do not know if any of Deason's books are still in print, but next to an original Pollock's theatre uncut or some of Herr Schreiber's models from before the turn of the century also uncut , Deason's books are absolutely the best thing for a card modeler to find.

I have a reasonably comprehensive library of card modeling books, but none approach the craft with the seriousness and intent of purpose of Geoffrey Deason's. I do not know if Geoffrey Deason is still alive.

Given that he was a contemporary of Heighway, he must be getting on in years. Certainly, in "Cardboard Ship Models" there is a photograph of him. It shows a slight, balding figure, whose age I'd put at about late 50s or early 60s.

If that was in, say, , just before the book was published, he would now be well into his 80s. Neither do I know if the books are still available. Perhaps someone in the book trade could do a search of books in print for us to see if these titles are still in print, or perhaps a list subscriber in Britain might be able to more easily check with Nexus for us. Card is clearly his preferred medium. The car models he describes are very good, and feature a lot of useful ideas, but his boat and locomotive models are poor by comparison.

Lozier is not a purist when it comes to card modeling - he happily includes the odd bit of wood or plastic if that helps make the model better, but nevertheless he IS on the right track. It was 'only' architectural models, and not what I was interested in at the time.

But since I bought it nearly 30 years ago, it has become a well-used reference. Essentially it is an introduction to architectural model making. In his preface, Bayley says: 'The purpose of this book is to make a clear and constructive approach to cardboard model making, which is a craft of considerable importance and is extensively used by professional model makers, architects and display artists'.

The introductory chapter outlines a range of easily made jigs that will help the model maker, and then, through a series of graded exercises, the model maker takes on increasingly difficult tasks. The first model is a simple four-sided, flat-roofed building; the last is a modern church. Along the way we build a Cotswold cottage, a medieval gatehouse, a Norman keep, and several other interesting constructionally models.

For those who aspire to build architecturally accurate models from original plans, either as a hobby or for a living, this book is an excellent introduction. Lots of diagrams, plans all dimensioned make it a treasure trove for Model T aficionados. Unfortunately, Ross never gets beyond a simple disc wheel for his cars. If only he had read Deason, he'd have known how to make spoked wheels. Cardboard Modelling : Vol. Making Models in Card , Micromodels Ltd.

Reprints available from Myles K. Knopf, New York, Not specific to card modeling, this is an encyclopedic reference on almost all aspects of scale modeling in almost all media. This in turn assumes a working knowledge of descriptive geometry, and two and three view drawing. And this presupposes that one already knows how to use a T-square, compass, dividers and triangles. I'm sorry to say that if one is interested in design, one is best advised to begin at the beginning.

It is a high school text, and it is exceedingly clear in all of its descriptions of processes and techniques. So, that's my advice. Start at the beginning. I know that all those illustrations of developments of scalene cones by triangulation look intoxicating, but you'll only end up frustrated if you try to begin your designing there.
