    My first papermodel :)
    Nice to find this great site! I didn't know that papermodelling was so big.
    I have now discovered a lot of companies that makes papercraft.
    I have only heard about fiddlersgreen before, and am pleased to know that there are soo many out there.

    My next project is the C-130....It seems to be a bit tricky with so many details....but I'll give it a try.

    Howdy Josve,

    Welcome to the forum, we are glad to have ya. I built that same model except I left off the wheel covers. It has to be one of my favorites. I have even done a recolor of it (although I have yet to complete assembly of the recolored version). The recolor is of the US Air Force version of the cessna 172 skyhawk in black and white.
    Below is a pic of the original I built as it sat out on my driveway. I will try to finish up the recolored model and get some photos of it in here someday.

    have a good day and again, welcome to the forum,

    Greg aka GW

    Thankyou for the great welcome here guys!
    This seems like a very nice forum :)

    I have started on the C-130 from FlyModel.....will post some shots later.
    The cockpit is almost ready, but this is a difficult aircraft to build nicely.
