    For the holidays i took the other side of the falcon (cockpit side) home.
    But after 2 bad movies i build that allready..
    Now eveything is drying...

    Now i''m looking for some thick paper to build the engine flaps..
    The idea of the engine comes from this site
    http://www.kartonbau.de/wbb2/thread...0&sid=76742d1d1f5ac7aa033462f6d9078b4b&page=2

    It looks great.. maybe i can do that also :)
    (the first 2 pictures are from kartonbau for the engine i want)
    the other are mine.

    Hi..
    Well for the big objects i use cardboard.
    The parts are printed on normal paper 80grams.
    and all the small parts are first glued on thick card-paper which is used for kellogs cerial boxes..etc.etc

    then i fold it..and put in on a large part

    And then i hope stays on.

    the scale i really don't know.
    it's around long 1.3m...

    All the details that you added are outstanding.
