    Hello,
    I´m new in this art. I started with a Millenniun Falcon that my wife gift to me,
    and I saw that I really liked making papercraft models, (when I got the time), specially spacerafts and other CiFi movies stuff. Now I´m making a T47 Snowspeeder from PaperReplika; not done yet, but not bad to be the second one.
    Thank you

    Hello Tatoman!

    Welcome to zealot!

    BTW, at first I thought your nick was "Tattoo-Man"..! :D ;)

    Subnuke is right, this is the best place to be if it comes to papermodeling. I'd love to see some pictures of your previous builds. Could you show them to us, please?

    Have fun and enjoy! :)

    Thank you! I´ll find a lot of info an help for sure. It´s a pleasure become a part of this forum. I´m from Madrid, Spain;
    and here, "Tato" is a person that you can find anywhere. ;) That's where the nick comes from. Actually I haven´t any tatto...:)

    Here´s my two builds for now:

    This is a comercial kit of the Milennium Falcon with the pre-cutted pieces. Some of them are poorly cutted and doesn´t fit very well. It´s a good detail the led lights that comes with the kit, and makes some sounds too. Not bad to be the first...;)

    Hi Tatoman, I built the snowspeeder as well, nice model!

    Welcome to the best place to be for paper (& other) models!

    Sadly my (then) 18 month-old son destroyed it - think after the AT-AT squashes Luke's speeder ....
