    The fact that you can build a model at all, after everything you have been through is inspiring, to say the least. Kudos to you for going forward! I think it looks great, a silver sharpie would be effective on the leading edge, touched up a bit unevenly, just at the leading edges of all winged parts, as the paint peeled off when she flew supersonic. :punch:

    Incredible. Looks ready for breaking the sound barrier. May I ask how would you display it? Seeing work like this makes me wish I had more time to work with my models.

    I like the "Gallery" you have created, that is a "Paperair" first creation. I've never seen that done before, what a great space saver!

    The plane looks so straight and true. Great job!

    Great job PaperAir, I too love the idea of framing them and hanging them on the wall, different, and I like different. Can't wait to see your next amazing build.
