    Found a website selling papermodels:

    http://www.bestpapermodels.com/index.php

    They have a large range of models available at low prices. There are a few samples available free for download:

    and

    There are numerous others. My favorite is the grenade, you should see the look on peoples faces when you throw it through the doorway :eek:

    Bit of a swizz.... Clicking "Download free model" does NOT get you the model diorama - just PICTURES of it!
    Under "Space technology", the Juno II works, though.

    Wrong, there are several downloadable models available from this site, just look carefully. And yes, some are just pics but others include a small tank, torpedo boat, the Convair, an Italian building, etc. Have more faith.

    Yes, at least seven free models. Just ordered a few and the site was very efficient and the models look very promising. Some nice weathering on a couple of them.

    Has anyone had experience with them regarding purchases? How long does it take for them to respond with the download links?

    I purchased three models and the download links were instantaneous. It took several minutes for the email links to get to me, but the download links on the site were instantaneous. I look forward to more models from this site!

    Convair -> Aircraft -> USA There is a PC-6 there too
    Tanks -> Military -> Germany Matilda and Panzer III
    -> Great Britain - a light tank

    The free models look simple and elegant. Should be an excellent site to watch in the future.

    I think that the models are looking very similar with Betexa models. Here is an example.

    The Me 109 and the Tiger I tank are definitely of Betexa origins. Those are the only two Betexa I have to compare, so I don't know if any others are.

    Also the F4U1-A Corsair, Yakovlev Yak-1, at least one of the Fw-190, KAWASAKI Ki-61 Tei and the A6M5 Zero , I'm not not very sure about the tanks.
