Here are the models I have built so far. I'm an aviation & space nut and anything having to do with WWII. What I have learned from my builds is that the more of them you make the better you get. I not only enjoy the building of the model I love learning the history behind it. What really attracted me to FG was the historical info that comes with each of the models. Gosh your not just building a model your are building something that made history. We have Chip Fyn to thank for that (may he rest in peace). I never met him but I am one more person he has inspired.

Thank you both for your kind comments . wc the X-15 is one of FG models it was my first paper model. As a young man in the late fifties I followed the flights of this fantastic rocket plane and the brave pilots who flew it. The X-15 will always have a special place in my collection of paper models.

Is the shuttle stack and MLP from AXM? Alfonso does some great work with his space collections.

Yes willygoat the shuttle stack is from AXM. It is the largest and most difficult build I've done so far. While I was building it my grandkids asked me if I would bring it to their school and show it to the class. This was right before the end of the shuttle program and they were studying the US space program. I ended up showing it to 15 different classes that day. I had so much fun talking about my model to a captive audience. One of the modifications I made to it was to use small Velcro strips to attach the boosters and fuel tank to the shuttle that way I could show the kids how it came apart on its flight into orbit. I have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from this model.
