    Hello fellow modelers.
    I'm new to the site, and to paper modeling. I built alot of plastic models as a kid and a couple of balsa and paper models as an adult. I stumbled in to paper modeling accedently about four months ago in the search for an Apollo LUT model for my 1/144 Sat V plastic model, WOW I had no idea how big this is.
    I've been a casualty of this wonderfull economy, I've been job hunting for over a year, and modeling has helped keep my sanity, it's not good for a man to not work, idle hands you know. I've out grown the small models, the bigger the more complex the better. I'm really exceited about Scott's 1/4 merc capsule. i just finised Greelt's 1/48 Sat V with credit going to Fredric Boucher for his second stage based on Greelt's design, and Ton Notbloom's design" found on J. Leslie's LHV site
    " he really has some great models too. Any way hello to all, and thank you to all the hard working designers out there.
