    After work today, I have to attend a seminar with my colleagues.
    Get back around 9.30 pm. So, I did an easy and simple one.

    Yuki's Flying Cardmodels 1/144 RAF BAe System T1 "Hawk" Red Arrow
    Original Scale 1/72.

    The assembly is not so hard. But I've got another problem.
    The 120-gram paper does give a solid shape but as I fold/roll the color, especially red and black, wear off.

    So, I've got a lot of work on painting the fuselage and curb of the airplane.

    Luckily, the poster color paint can cover the damaged area but transparent to the solid line of the aircraft. I'm pretty satisfy with this tiny piece of work.

    You'll have to make 8 more, for display formations.

    Thanks for the idea Wojtee.

    Well, I might do the red arrow fleet sometime later.
    I still have many paper/plastic models in the row. :mrgreen:

    Thank you Zathros for the compliment.
    I really appreciated that.

    These little planes really fulfill my dreams
    and it's even better to know that there're people out there
    who also love these plane models. ^ ^

    Perfect. Fantastic work :thumb:

    You seem to have an endless supply of these. Where do you keep your expanding airforce?

    Very nice! Are most of your airplanes in 1/144th scale?

    Cheers,
    Douglas :cool:

    Thanks everyone.

    @ Douglas (Warren61) well, these Hawks and Thunderbirds are actually a little bit larger than 1/144. I did compare with my available plastic model. I don't know the exact scale coz when I select two pages print in one A4 sometime it's not actually reduce by 50%. But I'm sure they are smaller than 1/100 could be around 1/120 or 1/130. However, almost all of my paper planes built and posted in Zealot are in 1/144 scale (or very close to this scale).

    @ trt, I still have about 10 1/144 plastic models, 3 1/72 plastic models in the box. But I can't resist building more paper models since there are so much more type of planes and helicopters I like :mrgreen:.
