1/250th Lohner for the Radetsky!
« on: November 17, 2016, 05:18:25 AM »
All,

I started building some paper card models...they are EXTREMELY addictive!  If you want a change of pace, go for it but be prepared to want to build more and more and more!

I am currently trying to build my first ship...the Radetsky in 1/250th scale...and it has a neat little Lohner attached to it!  Since I'm not a ship man, I decided to start with the plane  ;D

Anyway, it's amazing what you can do with paper and soooooo tiny as well!  It still needs some work, touch up etc. but this thing even has two seats, an instrument panel and radiator!  Fun stuff.





Now...how to rig it!!!!!!

Cheers,
Dan

 Dan,
How in  the world do you see your progress,let alone fold the card stock? Looking forward to seeing her in the full rigging my old friend.
Highest Regards,

What an amazing little model, it looks superb but how you work with such a small scale is beyond me, good luck with the rigging.

I agree with Gregory, Des, and my Amigo Bud! Amazing work in an unbelievably TINY scale!

Thanks, Everybody.  I've missed being around here and plan to be more active in the near future...

So in keeping with Des' request, here is the "kit box" and instructions AND "sprues"!  All in one with these paper kits.



Also for scale, a shot of the little plane on top of a massive 1/72nd drawing.  Man...I'm nuts.



I will try Terri's idea of using some left over hair next!

Cheers to you all,
Dan

Paper models have a vintage feel on their own, I'm not planning to build any but I think they're fascinating.
Good choice and kind idea to share the little nice gem.
