    CONGRATULATIONS to @josve for making this very realistic job on the Bofors 40mm 1/16 gpm.
    If I had not followed the build thread, I would not believe that this was made out of paper.

    As I wrote in building thread - it must came from shrinking machine :) Beautifully realistic.

    Great work!!! Amazing.
    I think this is the final step in paper-modeling. No further step possible from there...
    I challenge anyone to guess what material this model is made of... :eek:

    Paper. The giveaway is the wheels. However, only a practiced eye in the world of paper would even know. This model is truly outstanding!!!:bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::Drinks:

    (sanding the tread to the sides of the tire to smooth the transition and then even Sky wouldn't be able to tell!)
