    I think you underrate yourself. That is a good job!!

    Yep, that is a fine job! This is a great model, for anyone wondering about doing it.

    Wellllll!!!

    This was one that I did too! I think you did a great job! Especially on those fins - they are pretty big and I had a hard time getting them to not warp.

    The thruster and little details look really good too. I think you underrate yourself....

    I agree with the others - you have done a fine job with the V-2 rocket. Looks great to me. It was one of the first paper models I ever builded - so I know, that it is not that easy.

    When I built this one a couple of years ago, I added balsa stiffeners to the fins (inside, of course). I often overbuild models but it's usually worth the effort.

    You've done fine job on this one. We learn by stretching our skills a bit. What better way to do that than with a free kit you can reprint if you goof up.:thumb:

    No worries,

    My skills aren't up to the level...What the heck you talking about!?!

    Fantastic job! Looks great to me!

    Looks like you bought a rocket from an arms dealer and claiming it's a paper model!:twisted:

    Hello

    Hello
    my name is Michael.
    I build card models since the last three years. My special interest is space modelling and airplanes.
    I read this article with an very personal interest, because I visited last year the former P7 terminal at usedom/east germany.
    The area is normaly a forbidden place to entrance. But...

    Here are some pictures with an overview

    [​IMG]
    This is a model of the area without the building house at the right side which is out of the picture

    [​IMG]
    This is place No.1 Over this rim the rockets came out from the building house.

    [​IMG]
    This is No.2 This rock marks the place from where the V2 starts in former times.

    [​IMG]
    This is the view from No.3 You can see the original fire hydrant with my daughter.

    [​IMG]
    This is No.4 The rim where the testfirings where made.

    Hope you like the short history trip.
    I will post more "card" pictures soon!
