    This is from the same batch of models asthe VF-1J that I took to work on while camping this weekend. The first image shows where I tried to reinforce the skeleton with cardboard formers. In addition to featuring the AXM Enterprise, it also features Richard De Vries tailcone, which I accidently printed off scale and had to fudge things a bit since I didn't have a printer handy.

    Hi, nice model. Quick question, what paper were you using for the model? I have built lots of paper models over the past couple of years but I still have not come across a paper/card stock that I like.

    Thanks!

    Hi, do you use any particular brand of paper? I found that in regular printing papers I can get a real nice bright white, but in the heavier card stock the paper is either a duller white or off white. Do you know of any nice, bright card stock?

    Thanks!

    Beautiful model! do you have any plans to build a 747 carrier to go with it? Id be curious to see that too.

    Nice job, building a shuttle in the great outdoors! Looks good from where i am sitting. (-;
    By the way, where can I get that tailcone?
    --EDIT-- Never mind, I got it. Didn't know Alfonso now also hosted the SCA as well. Always had the idea I had to Yahoo my Google before getting to it...
