We are a small Hungarian customizer group specifing on different "1/18th" or "3 and 3/4 inch" figure custom making.
We are trying to use as much creative technique as posssible to solve and aprroach different executions, so our customs
can develop each time when we doing something new. Also we are always opened for new things and ready to help out
fellow collectors and hobby lovers if we can 🙂
Here are our facebook link where you can check out our custom works:

If you remember, long time ago I did a cardboard truck from a Shoebox :D

So I get back to the idea, how can I develop the technique and building methods/process...so I choosed a simple model, made by great papercraft designer Rawen at the scale of 1/43: TATRA SOT guntruck.
I"ve built up the original model out of paper..here:

Than I decided to scale it up nearly to 1/18 and make it Joe compatible. Here are the results :)

Thanks =)
I had use no special software at all. I scaled up the seat parts first, so the figure can sit on it perfectly. And than part by part I adjusted everything else using my ruler, Paint and Word. Thats it. =)

Well...yeah :D...I know we live in a new technology times, but for me it was easier to use the "given" soft then find a special one. :)

For reference I used a figure :) Any new Joe will be good for that. I sit him on a sheet of paper and just draw the seat around. And than I just adjusted the seat pieces first...than the floor...and so on.. every detail piece by piece.
