I will miss his humor and his models, I appreciated Fiddler's Green to no end, the first commercial paper model site I ever found, and the first set of paper buildings I ever folded together were his. I used them for green plastic armymen battles! RIP
Chip.

Long before I started building paper models, the picture postcards with models from something called "Fiddlers Green" fascinated me. Without a doubt, the idea of being able to make good-looking models from a picture postcard was immensely appealing. Having bought one and studied it (not sure I ever built it) I was definitely hooked - even to the point of purchasing those sweets recommended for making wheels.

In hindsight, I can truly say that the Fiddlers Green concept was one of the main influences that made me cross over from big balsa models to small paper models. I have never regretted that.

I never really registered the name Chip Fyn until arriving here, where I came to understand his impact on the paper modeling community. Thank you, Chip, for touching me as well.

Leif

I just woke up to the news that Chip passed away.
My heart is heavy with sorrow.
I've built his models and I've talked briefly with him in the internet.
I always felt that he was a good and generous human being.
An artist that always paid more attention to people and models than to profit.
To his family and friends, my condolences.


Thanks Chip.

I am really sad to hear this.

I will miss Chips humour and his presence in the paper modeling arena.

While we all have to go, this does not lessen the loss.

RIP.

Does anybody know what his plans for the future of Fiddlersgreen were? I know for a while he was worried it would die with him.

Rest in Peace Chip, you'll always be one of my favorite model designers.
