    Hi all!

    OOOOO I'm not doing the right thing here, and before hand i apologize to each and every one for what I'm about to do.....

    I have to use the P-word.... Yes the word wall1 PLASTIC wall1 :cry:
    But first let me explain before I'm being shot train97
    A friend of mine at work builds this dreaded models. We work in the Aviation industry with DC9 and MD80's.
    His girlfriend wants to buy him :cry: a model for his birthday. But she can't find any such model in South Africa. She approached me asking for help.

    Where can she buy and import any one of these wall1 plastic models wall1 from.

    For all you shocked people for reading the P-word I do apologize!
    I want a paper model of a DC9 or MD 80... which also i cant find, can anyone help me to find one? He is currently building a wall1 plastic wall1 P40E War hawk and I recently acquired a paper model of the P40 Kitty hawk.
    After my current build of a beautiful CAR!!!!!!!! I'll build the P40 to show him what can be done with paper. If anyone can help me with a DC9 / MD80 paper model I'll show him again not to disregard a paper model.... EVER!
    Maybe he'll convert... :twisted:

    announce1 Paper Rules!

    When I designed that DC-9, I bought a small 1/120 scale Revell kit on Ebay to help visualize the plane when I couldn't make it out to the museum to check the real thing.

    I suggest watching Ebay to find out of production kits like this.

    That's funny - I saw the Halinski F4 and wondered if that was you winning the bid.

    I had to go and look at those FG DC-9 files. Those are not my original wings in the Eastern Airlines folder. For some reason, FG felt the need to put a personal imprint on the model, and re-did the wings. Send me your email address, and I'll get my originals to you. The files are a bit large to post here. I've given up trying to keep my work totally original as far asFG goes. They've got their own ideas of how a moldel should look--mainly on the sheet itself.

    Yes, that was me. I am the only russell that I know of that buys models on E-Bay.
    Also, I see an awful lot of names there that I recognize and I've also bought many models from a few of them.

    Aaaah, It's a small world after all!:twisted:

    I have been merely collecting them and leaving them in flat form.
    There is no way I have enough room for all these models in there built form!:mrgreen:

    I have no idea what I will do with them when I do build them.
    I guess I could give them to the library or schools.
    I may even contact a local museum. It all depends on what genre I end up sticking with.
    Lately I have been leaning toward architecture, but we shall have to wait and see.
    One can never tell what tomorrow will bring.:rolleyes:

    My small airliners

    Well, here's my take on the MD-80 and the Boeing 717. Larger than the Fiddler Green, smaller then the Geli. Can you tell the differences between the aircraft? 717 has CFM engines, larger tail, shorter fuselage, and (not in the picture) a glass cockpit. If Herr Smut's friend works on a particular airline, send me an email and I might be able to work up a custom paint job, time permitting. By the way, strengthen the nose and this plane makes a great paper glider, really stable in flight.
