Actual plane for color scheme...flown by Scott at the museum has a nice
walk around you-tube vid..
Starting build with the tail end fuselage, the tail cone part is redrawn had a funky petal design the actual plane has a rectangular shaped cross section, not round at the tail cone. I will have some gaps in the skins hopefully negligible, but certainly no halinski ha

For some reason water borne aircraft seem to be a real paper kit challenge. I did Gary Pilworth's (sp) Boeing Clipper and it was a real task.

Probably a bit extra work, but in this case I've changed all these parts so just wondering if will go together at all!

Good drawing John B. Thank you very much for sharing. I built the Fiddlers Green model and still have it. I really liked that model. wc

You'll do it Glen. As they said when creating the Six Million Dollar Man: ''we have the technology''....

That's one of the great things about this paper lark: low cost. No GoFundMe stuff needed around here!

Yes I agree that it is low cost for the materials. The sad thing to me is that there are so many freebies around that no one sees the great kits available for a tiny pittance. I mean like Charles Dickens shillings money!!

I used to think nothing of paying almost $100 for a Tamiya or Trumpeter plastic kit. I think the most I have ever paid for a digital paper kit is $14!! And that was for a FULL SQUADRON of US Navy fighters from Roman!!

Sorry didn't mean to mess up your thread. It is just something I feel strongly about.
