You might actually be right as to the first picture that we decided on. For the first while it was a picture of the week but changed it to picture of the month as weekly was a little too much. Ah. The good old days.

It has been great to be a member of this Forum. I've made many friends and learned a lot over the year. Many thank to you Jason, and to the administrators who keep this Forum running - especially my friends, the late Rick Steffers and the still very much alive Ray Smith (Texman).


Wow, I had no idea you were that old, Don! I guess for the first couple of years you were on here there were few airplanes to build other than the Wright Flyer?

Congrats on 16 years! The site still seems new to me. I joined on 07-17-2007, so it has been 16 years for me as well. I love the support that Card Modelers here give to each other.

This post gave me inspiration to look at some of my early posts to this forum. That brought back some good memories. Thank you to everyone that have made this forum so fun!

RIP Rick Steffers

Happy Birthday papermodelers. I'm a newbie, joined in 2012.

We have lost so many over the years. The person that got me going on re-painting was my good friend John Bowden.

RIP John Bowden.

Here's a bit of history.

Saul's Paper/Card Model Page

I may be "walking on thin ice" mentioning this, but I guess it was fore runner of papermodelers.

The site is in my "favourites" - It's never been updated for at least 16 years - Is this called living in the past or perhaps laziness....

My purpose was to simply look at the pictures. But the quality of the work compelled me to begin leaving comments of encouragement.

Note: I couldn’t resist the idea of searching for the first “Picture Of The Week”.
Correct me if I am wrong Jason, but I came up with this image from Novemeber of 2007:
It is Millennium Falcon built by Gomidefilho.
I didn't remember and I didn't even know that this model had been a POTW back in the beginning. This Millenium Falcon still exists, it is the one designed by Suchini Makino, a classic model that at some point needs to be revised. Very honored with this memory and very happy too.
