    All in 1/144 (Try to)

    Let's started with Hoppeko Paper Model
    US Army AH-64D Apache Longbow

    The original scale is 1/72, I reduced to 1/144.
    It is really painful and I need to use tweezers to hold and fold.

    I still need to paint the curb, I'll do that later.

    Well, doing the 1/144 scale, I realize that several years from now,
    I don't think my eye can do this size anymore.

    Ojimak's Mig 1.44 The original color is yellow. But I like it grey.
    I'll fix the red star color later.

    You did a GREAT job on all of the models. I especially like the US Army AH-64D Apache Longbow.

    IF you keep this up, you will qualify for the micro-machine club.sign1

    Keep up the GREAT work.

    This is an absolutely wonderful kit.

    There are finally modellers making this interesting jets, only available in kit form from Anigrand in 1:72 resin for an equivalent price...So Ojimak is another contender?

    Is it also in 1/144..i assume so. Did you also have the scale this kit down from 1/72, are Ojimak kits this size always?

    Thanks, look forward to more Red Stars for you!

    Merci Cafe,

    Thank you freddyman, micahrogers, Rhaven Blaack and MilanX3.

    @MilanX3

    Ojimak designed paper plane templates and some of his designs available for download.

    This Yak-141 original scale is 1/70. Ojimak design always vary, 1/60, 1/70, 1/90, etc.

    For me, since I started model collecting from the pre-painted plastic model with the scale of 1/144. So, I try to make paper models in 1/144 too by selecting the %reduction of scale when I print. (Need to calculate how much I should scale down, it's not exact but still o.k.)

    Thanks for the note Shika!

    So is Ojimak a member on the forum or the name of a model company? I see many on the airplane forum have made his kits. 1/70 is my preference in any case...is there a place where there is a list of Ojimak kits available...I too am a fan of Russian airplanes!

    Cheers,
