The incredible shrinking Razorback...

So thanks to the world reknowned AirDave I have a T-Bolt for my birthday! When SWMBO said "and just where are you going to put all these little airplanes?" the die was cast. Set my printer to Teeny Tiny and hit Print. Progress thus far:

Looks good. Also looks small.

Is it 1/100, or did you go even smaller?

I used to do 1/144 in plastics but I think 1/100 is a good medium for paper.

Will be interesting to follow this build. I have an Airdave Tbolt printed, but not built (yet), but it will be at normal model size.

More progress. Dave's forum build is a great help. I am finding this more complicated than the TBD I just did that was already 1:100 but I have not left out as many pieces as I thought I would. The cockpit is great but in this scale you really can't see it. Oh well, I know it is in there.

Looking great for such a smal model. I’ll be following your build.

More progress. Not sure how much of the wing framework I will really need in this small size. Got Dave's intercooler door update but had already assembled those parts. Actually the way he has shaded them makes them very 3D looking in this size. All the internal formers fit perfectly at this size. I was expecting problems because of paper thickness but they just took some minor sanding to make sure they were smooth. Another interesting thing I have noticed is that with this build I didn't pre spray the sheets before starting as per Texman's recommendation. It makes a difference in the strength of the paper edges so I will always do this in future.

Amazing that you can build that much detail into a 1/100 build.

Very impressive.
