    To Revell-Fan;
    Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)
    A "real prop"-look was actually what I was hoping for!
    I am very happy with how it turned out, glad you think it looks ok!

    To Heckler;
    Thank you very much!
    I am definitely happy I did the three holes, because I do look at it every day! :)

    To Rogerio Silva;
    Thank you so much! :)
    I was really hoping to get it to look realistic! It was a hard build, I´m just happy the end result turned out ok!

    Thank you so much!! :)
    It was hard but totally worth it!

    To frap10;
    I agree with you, it is amazing what can be done with paper!
    I am still surprised whenever I find a great papercraft that someone took the time to construct!
    And the best part is that I get to build them! Love it!! :)

    I think the best parts in this hobby are:
    1 - you get to build them (agreed!);
    2 - if you make a mistake, you can always reprint it;
    3 - it's not so expensive as other hobbies;
    4 - you get to join ZEALOT (YAY!!!) and share experiences;
    5 - you get a lot of rewarding accomplishment, mainly with those "too difficult for me" models;
    6 - if you want, you can always spend some time to learn how to do your own models, "old school" or "new school" way (whichever suits you the best).

    This is THE hobby!
