Superlatives elude me--that looks absolutely real!  Only the desk and paint box behind give away the scale.  That is breathtaking modeling Matt77.  Truly outstanding. 

Best regards,

Bob

Big thanks  Bob, Terri, RAGIII and Dan

Small changes and updates:

I moved the rudder controls to the correct position, masking the wrong position with the addition of a sheet of metal, as it appears in the photos.



I placed the engine on the supports but I had to remove the oil tank. To reposition it I will have to find an alternative solution, as I can no longer dislocate the engine.





I think tomorrow I will be able to finish the whole nacelle.

All right, I was going to write something complimentary and then found it necessary to go back to Page 1 and check for sure that this is a paper card model.
I think that eclipses any other compliments I might have made.

There is something fundamentally amiss with a society which forces it's modelers to work for a living.

Matt 77,
      Amazing detail, and as already stated, so real looking. You are taking this paper medium to new heights, superb modelling!
Cheers,
Lance

To the naked eye, it appears impossible that this is paper.  Surely it looks like linen, wood, steel, aluminum, leather a various other metal.  Matt77, how did you find these items in such small scale??? ;)  Seriously, this is just a joy and pleasure to behold as this magnificent model unfolds (no pun) before our eye.  Simply the best!

Best,

Bob

Hi Matt,
I agree with ALL modellers that wrote before myself about your gem.
Above all, it seems real materials instead of paper!
Really well done at 360 degrees!

Thanks to everyone for the generous compliments.
I hope not to disappoint you by continuing the construction of this model.


Finally, on the fifth attempt, I managed to get the seat I wanted.




For the MG Fiat Mod. 1914 tipo Aviazione they are only on the first attempt, if I can't get a good result I will have to opt for a Fiat-Revelli with normal bullet magazines



See you soon,

That pile of chairs reminds me of my garage. ::)  Seriously, the upright chair with seat belt looks like someone could walk up and sit down in it!  This is amazing art.  The MG looks great too.  Very well done. 

Best,

Bob

SMP has beaten me to the comment that this looks like anything but paper. The engine alone is a mini-masterpiece and I could be easily convinced that it was real metal or at the least well painted plastic. The fit of parts is exceptional and there is no trace of a joint anywhere. Simply folding and shaping this paper leaves me amazed - I cannot find words to properly express my admiration for what you are doing.

Marco's skills kill me...

I tend to use "other" things to make the tiny or hard-to-make-out-of-paper stuff but not Marco!

Pretty darn amazing.  We are all taking notes.

Dan  :o :o ;) ;)

Thank you all,
you are too generous.

The nacelle is almost complete:





I have chosen not to put the cartridge collectors:




But, now, I have to face the cut of the instruments, but the clouds of the storm are darkening the sun,



I believe I will have to postpone the operation until tomorrow evening,
hoping for a clear sky.
