Hi All

Hi

Just found your site and I'm itching to get started.
I've recently developed a bit of a mania for paper firearms.
Being in the UK that's about as close as I'll ever come to the real thing.

Despite not being a biker I've mostly built paper motorcycles in the past.
I would describe them as acceptable, but with room for improvement.

Dear Zack:
Welcome, you will find threads on builds of some of the guns here. seens to me you will have to get the PDO reader and learn howto print from these files as a lot of the guns seen to be with this file form. there are some in user friendly PDF files however to start with.
Good luck,
MILES

Warning - visiting this Forum can lead to having great fun and meeting some nice people into the same hobby




Can lead to sitting at table looking at card for long periods of time and thinkin how did that person make that out of these few pages of card paper.
