Looks great, can't wait to see the finished product.

The Supermarine Walrus would make a good project as it was designed to be assembled from mostly flat sheet aluminium. Ideal for the paper model conversion. IIRC only 2 or 3 panels had compound curves.
Many years ago I was involved in restoring a real one.

^ Perhaps you could do a write up of that restoration, I'm sure I would not be the only one interested. Pictures too please.
