    No offense to the New Zealand Air Force, but Paper-Replika has the better model IMHO. Nothin' but respect for you, New Zealand.

    No disrespect meant to the Kiwis. Without New Zealand, we wouldn't have Flight of the Conchords.

    Yes, Paper-Replika is a better model. We were looking a bit closer at the NZAF model and were wondering, where are the engines? Thanks Julius. I am thinking this may b the first of its kind c130-G .... G for glider! I wonder what it would take to tow that big thing, lol. Kudos to the kiwis for the great effort!

    The NZAF model has been around for quite some time - I had a copy before I found Zealot I think. Yes its low-detail and missing the engines, but it was designed more as a toy than a model. I believe its supposed to "fly" as a hand-tossed paper plane.

    I think that might work! Pretty slow on the take off though! I think the runway may have to be 2 miles long....lol.
