    I started Messerschmitt 109f-4/Trop witch one was flying by German pilot ace Hans-Joachim Marseille. This paper model was realest by "Kartonowy arsenal" also I'm using laser cut frames and plastic canopies special for this model.

    More about plane you can read in here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messerschmitt_Bf_109

    NICE! NICE!

    Are the laser-cut frames made from wood?!

    I'm following this thread - please keep it up.

    That is not that big mistake. I believe that when you do the front canopy, it will cover some of it up. Another option, (If you scanned the page before you built it) is to print out that section on reg weight paper and glue over it. The thinner paper will not stand out like the card stock around the edges.

    Well I don't have that scanned page with parts but I hope that it will hide then I spray it with glaze.

    It will be a masterpiece in my opinion if you continue with the same level workmanship.

    Hi.
    My "Friedrich" starting to look like a plane :mrgreen:. As you can see I started to build wings. But this is a hard place such as tail. Separate ailerons are quite difficult to build but they are looking so good. Ailerons probably will be costly.
    Heres some photos.

    Well it's hard to say but I thinking that it is about 3 hours of try-on details and other hard work :mrgreen:. Wings they arent so good they have a cuple mistakes as always.

    No wonder you guys love building these if you can create something that good in a single day.
