I usually try to keep posts on my dA account strictly related to my models and various projects, but I've found myself in need of a larger sounding board than biased online reviews. As the title states, my iPod (160gb 7th gen classic) recently died on me, and given that it's out of warranty, I'm looking for a replacement/alternative.

Since high school, I've gone through maybe five or so iPods, and in my experience, they typically barely out last their 1-year warranty. On top of that, the one time I did have a legitimately defective in-warranty device, dealing with Apple's customer support was akin to pulling teeth.

So I'm curious as to what the populous here at dA uses for their on-the-go musical needs; does anyone actually use anything other than Apple? (die hard Apple-fanboys need not reply ;) )


TL;DR - What would you recommend as an iPod alternative?

I have a question about what I can do to increase the durability of the papercrafts I make. While I understand that they are made out of paper and are therefor more fragile than, say, molded plastic, I am wondering if there is a way to keep them from being crunched by but the lightest touch, so that I may possibly cosplay, or at least have a little fun with them.

On the shotgun, I found that having a coat of super glue helped it keep it's shape so that I could hold it, and putting extra stuffing in the stock kept it from getting crushed. Though for a number of reasons, this won't work for ones I want to do in the future. Are there any methods for, say using a resin on either the inside or outside of the paper (normal printer paper is all I have right now) that will give it a nice hard shell? Or at least one that is stronger than the paper on its own?

Thanks!

Aside from using cardstock (basically thicker paper), nothing I've ever really tried. Pretty much everything I've ever built was display-only. I've heard of people using spray-resin to coat their models, but I can't really give any personal advise, sorry!

Do you have any advice on creating your own papercraft models? I've been wanting to try to make some portal 1 heel springs.

Not to put a damper on things, but paper isn't really the best material for cosplay (or for anything but display, really), but if you're determined to make them out of paper, i might suggest wearing high heels and making some sort of paper shell to go around them?
