    Super build. I don't think I could do anything in that scale with that detail.

    Thanks for the pictures.

    Cheers JTF

    That looks great! Better than the one I did. I love the track and suspension springs especially.

    Absolutely yes... you can do anything with a model you have made, its your own proprety. That is why I have used metal wires in the paper model to make it look real...
    Also, I remember that when I made my very first paper model 4 years back (F4-F Grumman Wildcat), I fitted an elecrtic motor with the propellor...being a novice, I accidently added a got of glue which short-circuited the motor and I could never see the propellor running... But I guess you learn from your mistakes....
    I am always glad to receive comments / suggestions on my models so that I can improve upon my weekness.

    Excellent.. That is one superb model. A model is a model .. I would as you have done use any materials needed to build a great model. Paper (Card Stock) has quite a few advantages over Plastic .. That's why we use it IMO. Wire has advantages over paper. That makes it perfectly required..

    Great Job

    If I remember correctly, I used acrylic paint on the wires. Also, I used a glue based on Acrylic I think....
