    Hi all.

    My name is Christopher. I'm from Poland and love paper modeling mostly railway and military vehicles

    It's time for the presentation of the construction progress of my latest design German 6 axis platform wagon SSyms.

    The construction began some time ago. For build I use lasercut parts available for this model on the publisher website.

    The model is made from cardboard. It has complete equipment, a full representation of the brake system and engraved board.
    Here You can see progress of building thread

    Hello Christopher,

    Welcome to Zealot. What part of Poland do you live in? I was in Wroclaw, Poland for about 4 years. I was part of the local paper model club there. I even participated in the local EXPO (which was fun).

    Your work is Museum quality! I like the level of detail that you have put into this model. It looks better than what you can find in ANY hobby train shop.

    I look forward to seeing more of your work!
