« on: August 30, 2018, 12:00:55 AM »
After a long delay I'm back with a new WWI papermodel subject  ;D

Hi People, in the last moth I'm building Handley Page O/400 bomber and civil counterpart Handley page HP 16, a pretty plane of WWI, a beta from Murph's Models a fascinating model, Aaron made a nice feature like a detailed bomb bay, cockpit and big size model (the original scale is 1/48). now I show the progress at the time...











































Now I undercarriage and cover the white edges with paint, after I fix in a foam jig to made struts naceles, upper wing and full rigging...

This is a new maker to me, didn't realise you could get card models in this scale. Very nice work so far, the pair of them should look very nice together.

And for another time "hats off!" for you papermodellers. These skills are fantastic. It's hard to believe that this one is smaller than 1/72.

The model looks HUGE and you are doing a great job on it! I am amazed at what can be accomplished with these "paper wonders" and your results here are no exception. Keep up the great work, you are almost "there"!! 8) 8) 8)

I agree with Lance. I can not count how many times I have stated that I am amazed at the results Paper Modelers achieve!
