    Another awesome build! It still amazes me that you can make a model look that perfect in such a small scale.
    Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing the pics!

    Tex, that is so brilliantly done! :D

    I love seeing models reduced to this "gnat scale", particularly when they come out so nice as your's did...but for the scale reference (the quarter) you could not tell it was so small! What type of paper did you use, regular bond weight?

    Do you have any others you've done that small? If I recall correctly, FG has a few of their models reduced to business card size like this as freebies on their webpage, but I haven't had the chance to try them yet.
    The ol' "World's Smallest Airplane Museum" type thing...this is a superb example of what can be done with the FG models to produce very accurate and attractive mini-craft. :D

    Thanks for sharing photos of your excellent work!

    Cheers!

    Hey Jim,

    The only paper I used here was the regular 67# card stock. However, I do make a second copy on regular bond, to use to make joining strips. On FG and similar types, I remove the connecting tabs and replace them with these strips. It really ups the quality of the build, especially at this scale.

    I have done several small kits, some of them are
    in my album.

    Thanks for the kind words all,

    Ray

    P.s - we prefer "Oh my gawd" scale ;Q

    Hey, Ray! :D

    "OMG" scale, that's a new one for me.... :lol:

    BTW, I loved your A-4 Skyhawk too! It's amazing work...and, again, were it not for the quarter, I would never suspect how small she is.

    Cheers!
