    Hey ya'll,

    Rob, wish I had known the tip about printing the large size vs regular size paper grain tip. I am
    almost finished with a 1/144 scale A-4 for the Paperwarbirds contest, and that would explain why I had a little more trouble with the intakes than I was expecting.

    Keep watching the Paperwarbirds site in a few days
    for pictures. I added a rolled landing gear, rolled IFR probe, wheel wells, slats, flaps, speedbrakes, TER's, and am working on some snakeye bombs (those LITTLE suckers are giving some problems, so I may not use them)

    Wonderful design, thanks for your efforts!

    Ray--

    Don't know how you do that small fiddly work so well--your stuff is amazing. I'm lucky to get a decent model out of my oversized originals. We all are blessed with certain talents---fine work wasn't my gift. BTW--all FG regular sized models are laid out the same way, so it's always better to reduce the full sized (and waste a bit of paper) than to build the regular.

    Hi Rob,
    have you got any pictures of pre-builded (is that word correct?) models of your project? It would be nice to see how good it can be built and if everything fits well.

    Tad--not sure what you mean about "prebuilded". Are you refering to early test builds, before color was added? I don't have pictures of partial assemblies under construction. I'm a poor photographer, and a not much better builder. You have to check pictures from other folk's builds, like Ray's, to determine the quality of the build. There is a picture in my album of the completed models, by me.
