Chip's Passing

I am very sad to hear this,

Chip was a warm-hearted, caring, and very friendly person, who has done a great amount of work for the paper modeling community.

I have always loved reading his lenghty and very interesting historical descriptions to the airplane models.

Rest in peace, dear Chip,
Bengt in Stockholm

Oh my God!

This is so very sad...Chips passing leaves an extremely large and spirited hole in our paper modeling community. His kits were always so much fun to build, and the end product was always quite impressive, at least to me, considering the simplicity of the design.

I do hope someone will be able to keep his legacy alive and continue to offer his kits as well as any future projects based on this model design philosophy...modelers from the novice to the more experienced will feel his passing, I am sure.

RIP, Chip. Anne, you are in our prayers...

Jim

If there are heavens Chip will have
one. It will be a heaven of Folded paper
with clouds and soaring planes,

A Heaven free of pain...


Fiddlers Green was the first set of models that started me down this
road...he will be missed for sure.

I, also, started with papermodels mainly from Fiddler's Green.

There is a tribute to Chip about wood carving rather than paper models.

See: About Us

The tribute is about half-way down the page.
