These are outstanding builds. I would be scared to death of leaving little dings and creases in the glossy paper...

Beautiful MiG! I'll second what Vermin King said about leaving dings and creases.

So the first is Learjet 35, printed on normal printing paper and given a coat of clear spray paint. A little weight is added at the nose cone to prevent tail-dragging.

When you say "normal printing paper" what weight are you referring to? I use 110wt and I think it is a little too heavy for my 1:60 models. Any recommendations?

Normal printing paper weighs 80 gsm and for 1/60 models, I'll go for 120-150 gsm paper. But as I said somewhere earlier, I used 80 gsm paper and print the plans twice. I cut out the part and cut away the tabs and glue the part over the second copy and there I can have a flush joint. And the glue, usually PVA, that's layered between the sheet makes the part sturdy and easy to shape and control.

No. 6 in this series is the Cessna Citation NUMA, originally at 1/72. This plane was made from chrome paper or silver paper. The main wing fairing is a bit tricky and I have to enlarge the cutout in the fuselage to flush the wing fairing to both sides of the fuselage. Apart from this, there wasn't too much of a problem as the fit was good. The original is in light blue colour and available at Ecardmodels. The smaller one shows the original colour.

Very shiny! Great job. Some areas of that model are trickier than others, and you nailed it.
