I'm not the only crafter in the house.

And this post will show you the craft that my husband enjoys the most, and that is paper modelling.  For any of you who know him, you will know he is a complete petrol head. Anything with an engine, from bikes to trucks, lawn mowers to cars!!! If it has an engine, he likes it :)

This is a model of a Yamaha YZR-M1, and it has been painstakingly recreated using Diamond White Paper and Promarkers to colour the fold lines.  I think it is an amazing bit of craftsmanship, but I may be biased ;)

There is a 2p coin in front of the bike to show the scale.

Hubby has printed out another few models, and is deciding what to make next, I will keep you updated :)
