Wow Tim, that model is beautiful. Real nice job on it, especially the open door and interior. Well done.

I've had the paper model bug byte me...here are some of the models I have finished over the last couple of weeks.

First the Huey.

It was fun to build, but I cant keep the chopper blades from drooping. I really with this one had an interior...it would have been awsome with an open door.

click on the small image for a larger one....

I couldnt resist building the tiny Bell 30. It was just a fun little build that I threw together one night. I might try it in a larger scale later.

Awesome huey and model 30 Tim. Don't worry too much about rotor droop, look at one parked on the tarmac and you'll see what I mean. I've tried to build the huey twice, keep messing it up. I love the FG helicopter collection, choppers are far better and more unique looking than jets IMO.

Looking forward to your next images.

Very nice work, Tim. The Huey looks terrific. Your pics will come in handy when I try to build mine.

Wups; almost forgot the nice little AVRO "F"! I used tan coloured paper so I wouldnt have any nasty white edges to fill in.

...and just for fun; here is what our dining room table looks like when I'm 3/4 through work on a model (in this case the H-13 MASH copter).

Image


I'm wracking my brains trying to come up with a paper solution to using a lightbulb. I just tried putting facial tissue over a 100 watt bulb and then covered the paper with white glue. After a day, I peeled it off. It was too sticky- I should have started with a base of plastic wrap, I think. The tissue, permeated with the glue, ended up in-side out, which had the unexpected benifit of ending up with a compleatly smooth finish. However, due to excessive sticking, much of it got torn. And its not as hardened as I had hoped.

Still, it was a useful experement. I plan on continueing tonight: I am determined to have a paper fishbowl with doors!

hello all!

Here is a few pics of my own Stearman Kadyet. I didnt do the rigging right as I didnt have a picture in front of me at the time, and the wing braces are too long. But the rest looks pretty good. I am planning of making anther and correcting my mistakes.

I added some details to the engine that really helped make the whole model come alive. Its amazing what a few little extra bits can do.

Amazing job! You want another Stearman? Try my 'red and wild' (according to Chip) repaint. I want someone to build it so I can see the colours.

Great looking Stearman, Tim. I like the extra detail on the engine.

Here's what I have been up to this weekend: The large version of the baby albatros.

If you want to impress your friends, build Small...but if you want to impress your Kids, build BIG! (and yes, my kids were impressed).

Your work never ceases to amaze me. You're a true craftsman in paper. I've admired your abilities for years.
