    I don't think so. There where a couple of jp using only cardboard around, but to my knowledge Raptorarts was the first one who covered such a project with coats of papermache around here.

    Yup, paper mache is used. Check Lisafett's tutorial by using the search feature. Let us know how progress goes.

    Here are some pics of my last layer of paper mache. i added some patching compound, but the results didn't come out good. i then added some paper mache. i think the coatings are about a cm thick.
