    So. I recently got into paper modeling alot and I finished my first ever build. It's a VF-1S, Shunichi Makino build I believe.

    I would've liked to share it here also, but had a problem with my account. Now that it's fixed, I thought I could now share it here:

    These pics are a bit fuzzy. One of the hacks on my phone messed with the focusing of the lens.

    Shortly after that, about 18 hours later was my second model. VF-25 Alto custom, from Sascha Kunzke. It took a bit longer and I had noticed some issues I had with gluing and cutting, but I am still proud of it:

    I hope to visit here often and pick up some invaluable information like I do there!

    Thanks for having me!

    Even with slightly blurred pictures it looks like you did a great job. Especially for your first and second models!

    My first model was the N64 logo. It has gaps at the edges because I cut off flaps that I thought were doubled. Of course in hindsight I see that I had pieces turned around wrong. lol

    Once again, great job! I hope you enjoy papercrafting for a long time to come.
