I was recently inspired by some friends on Instagram to make a VW Westfalia van paper model. It’s the simplest model I’ve made to date, but what it lacks in complexity only adds to it’s adorableness. This model is a fun, quick build that can be done with scissors. It’s small enough to use plain, […]
I don’t often create construction equipment, but when Greenshields JCB contacted me about making the Hydradig, the world’s first wheeled excavator, I was thrilled to accept the challenge.
