    This is my first model of Donald E Edgecomb x-33. Still need to add the engine and rear stabilizers. I downloaded the model from The Lower Hudson Valley Paper Model Giftshop. I cleaned up the l the lines on the model and added logos. I laminated the patterns onto card stock to give the wings and such a rigid look. Also designed my own stand. I plan on designing many of the newer x planes and will keep you posted.

    Let me know what you all think.

    Uh looks like someone smushed the nose....

    Just kidding :grin:
    Model looks great! Really clean job for a first model, looks ALOT better than my first model (or my tenth for that matter). That stand looks sharp. Look forward to what you are working on next, and cant wait to see what kinda designs you come up with! Keep up the great work.

    kevin thanks for the kind words. the x33 is a pretty basic model to put together. figured i will go with a model with few parts so that i can hone my skills. also just as a heads up my first design will be the x34
