Post subject:  Chris's models

Hello everyone,

I joined the forum today, having just completed my first ever card model - the Piper J-3 Cub. Here are a few pictures:-

I expect you've all seen pictures of this particular model many many times before, but as a newcomer I'd appreciate any comments from all you much more experienced card modellers out there. I may be new to card modelling, but not to aircraft modelling in general, as I usually build the traditional balsa 'stick & tissue' models. You can see my work here http://www.virtualaerodrome.com/user_ha ... ser_id=203. Just click on an image of a model and you will then be shown more photos of that particular aircraft.

I will still probably continue to build this type of model, but I'm also looking forward to making LOTS more Fiddlers Green ones too!

Chris

Welcome Chris. Great job you did with the Cub. And those stick & tissue planes are awesome.

WWII, the wheels are just the ones included on the Cub .pdf file, the edges painted over with acrylics using a small brush. What do you all use for colouring the edges of your card models?!

july1772, I'm glad you liked my stick & tissue models too :D.

Welcome to the club and nice looking Cub :lol: We did things backward. I started building card models and just recently got into stick and tissue models. I like your F-6 hellcat stick model. I just built that one myself. Yours is much better by the way :D

It's only my second card model, but already I'm hooked!

Now, what to build next...

Well, Chris, it appears you're a natural card modeler. That biplane looks great. I'm certainly looking forward to seeing your future builds.

Great looking SE5a, Chris :) I love this plane! Nice to build and very atractive project. I did both colour versions before time in WSAM. What scale you use?

Post subject: 

Thank you both :D.

OldMan, I'm not sure what scale my SE5a is, but it is the 'LARGE' version.

I've got another one to add to the collection - a North American F86 Sabre:-

more pictures here http://s292.photobucket.com/albums/mm32 ... 6%20Sabre/.

I must say I was a little apprehensive as to how this one would go together as it's a fairly old model and somewhat less 'polished', at least compared to the SE5a I've just built (no disrespect at all intended to Chip or Fiddlers Green in general).

However, I was pleasantly surprised at how well everything fitted, and I was able to complete it in just a single afternoon/evening :D.
