    Thank you Zathros. :mrgreen:

    Actually, I only have weekdays evening, not including Friday to work
    on model. I do plastic models, gasaphon (Pre-painted plastic models)
    and paper models.

    For paper models, my speed of cutting is much faster compare to when I just started but the problem is I can't use any other scissors properly coz the one I used (Horse brand, big one) I cut so many papers. I can use it just like it is part of my hand now. (If you know me or see the amount of my works on paper models with limited time I have, you'll know this is not over exaggerate).

    For the assembly, I also spent less time, I remember spending 8 hours
    on Stahlhart's B/W draken 1/144 when I just begin paper model. Now, I can do it in only one hour.

    However, if I actually look into details, there are so many details I omit since it will take too much time. I'm fine by this, it's personal collection, not for entering a contest. sign1 :p

    I really am amazed. I don' think I have seen anyone make so many so fast, and you skills are getting better and better too. To be able to build something fast, and good, is something to be proud about. :)

    Looks like SAM 28000 AKA VC-25, AKA E-5, and sometimes called Air Force One, to me :p
    Nice work Shika

    Thanks again Zathros and thanks Micahtrogers.

    Good news about this piece of work.
    I also posted at Facebook of Paper replika
    https://www.facebook.com/paperreplika?fref=ts
    and it was selected as facebook cover photo.

    I really fell honor for this. (Aside from 42 like, the most responses I ever get from building models) :mrgreen:

    Thank you Cafe,
    I used to build Airbus A380 Qantas, I believe it is about the same size as Air Force One.
    Well, and my longest one is still 1/144 SSN-688 Los Angeles Class Submarine ^ ^
