DUDE!

wow, that works out great! the full blown version of 3DMax is not cheap and probably not easy to use, but you are def. doing it well. looks awesome.

Oh, I should probably note that not every line is a fold line some of them are just the geometry of the model.

As I build this I'm finding the Tumbler is much much more complicated than it looks upon casual inspection. And with every new photo I see, I see something new. Also it looks like every Tumbler built for the movies is different in some way.

 I think this is the first time that I was genuinely stumped as to where to start modeling.

Hey Chilebean I always said I had a hard time wrapping my mind around the Tumbler body. I did a little foam mock-up and then tried to build the chassis within the limits. I've never been a traditionalist, so modifying the Tumbler design was an easy decision. Even looking at the drivetrain I always felt the inline was simplicity in action. I was glad to see you had incorpated that into your model design. That's what this build log is all about.....BWD

Chilebean, OMG, that looks awesome, you printed it out and tested it, and it looks DEAD ON!   I think you should print the rest of it out and do it with the rest of it, just to see what it would look like complete! .

Keep up the great work my friend!

I think thats as far as I'll go with the paper model. I have a butt load of card board in my garage. So I think the next step should be full sized panels. First I have to unfold the rest of the panels but if I can get it mocked up in cardboard I can use those to start fiberglassing. yay!

For further explanation on the actual and/or relative volume of said "butt load" please refer to MT35. Thank you.

AWE CRAP! (not literally, all these "butt" jokes going around)

you beat me to it, i was going to ask what your description of a "butt load" was lol. 

anywho, if it helps i can order some Foam board from my boss, its 41 sheets for $88 (plus S&H)  24x36 by 3/16th's of an inch thick.  if you would like to use that, i will see what i can come up for you

Shaggy, I'll try the cardboard first but if that doesn't work I'll definitely ask on the foam core. I got a lot of cardboard from my old job. Those big pieces are 6'x6' It's very dry here so warping is not a big concern but I will laminate 2 pieces together for insurance and strength.

Hey Chilebean cardboard and duct tape is a gift from god....Its not a bad idea just to build it twice. Then stand back and get a feel for it being proportional....BWD
