    Very well done. It almost looks like stick and tissue construction.

    Vickers 1919 Transoceanic Airship

    VERY nice, Jan,

    A SUPER build! You have soon built them all now, haven´t you? The Hindenburg, the Graf Zeppelin, the R-101, the Bodensee, the Mediterranée, and the Vickers 1919 trans-oceanic airship project, that was sadly never realized. What an impressive collection of the major important classic rigid dirigibles.

    I have experimentd with enlarging the first sheet of the Vickers airship, but I haven´t started on the actual build yet . . .

    By the way, have you seen this web page, with wonderful drawings of the transoceanic airship project and a plan: http://www.aht.ndirect.co.uk/airships/vickers/Trans -Oceanic.htm

    Superb card modeling! Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos!

    Nice build. I agree with the guys above, looks as good as a tissue and balsa model.

    Hello Jan,
    Your Currell's airship truly magnificent, clean and perfect, as always.
    I saw your helicopter in: "Le Forum en Papier", very beautiful.
    I have also "Sikorsky HH60 Jayhawk USCG" by Ing. Vaclav Jancata.
    Know if somewhere there is this model the instructions or a thread?

    Regards.
    Orazio

    Jan, you are truly the Airship Fleetmaster! Are you posting these threads as you complete the models? if so, you are not only a skilled builder, but a fast one!

    Thanks for sharing another cool project with us!

    Thanks Jan,
    I tried this for a long time and instead was inside the home.
    Unfortunately the copy I downloaded at that time from the site "abc" does not have the numeration but this is my challenge, to re-interpret the numeration right!
    Thank you very much and also thanks to "N810"
