    Hello,

    yay, my first thread - Here are my first builds - more coming up soon.

    Eagle Transporter (my 1st build ever) I will build it again with thicker paper. I used 80g Paper for this model and the wrong glue.

    This is my second build (Mars Rover Curiosity). It is nearly finished - only the wheels in the middle and the arm is still missing.

    Thank you very much.

    @Zathros : I have no gallery, or did you meant the albums in my user section ?

    I am a huge fan of Space 1999! Still have a crush on Maya. May I ask if this is your own design or did you download it? I know my build of something like this would be horrible where your's beautiful. I still want to give this a try.

    Excellent work.

    That Eagle is a monster build! It's one of my future projects. You're looks great.
