    Hi Billy,

    A very good-looking 'set' indeed! The 'wide-angle' perspective is very realistic. Good luck with the model and the magnets, etc.
    I am convinced that this will be something really different and interesting.

    Bengt :D

    Hi Everyone,

    Yaniv...You have a very good idea concerning the contest and the PDF. It would be fascinating to see what everyone comes up with, especially if we make them truly 3-dimensional out of paper.

    Jerry,

    Steve and I would say to you, Tilt Rotor, that is the proper term for the various aircraft like the XV-3 and V-22

    First work on the plane, looks like my thump, when I acidently hitted it with a hammer :grin: But it is the cockpit inside-out, I need a mould for the transparent part. Kampflieger forgot to do the interiour, but that's not going to stop me...
    Cheers Billy

    Here's the first part of the plane, I printed it on metallic paper,put some windows in it, from the photo's I've got it look like the bottom of the plane is a little bit higher. Then I used the former- part to get the right shape of the hull..
    Cheers, Billy
