    This is my second paperbuild, so please don't laugh
    The standard on papaerbuilds i have seen on this site is incredible, and I hope to learn a lot here.
    I have now started tu build the C-130 from FlyModel.I got this as a gift from netherlands this spring, but it has just been stored away due to other hobbies as Family , flightsimming and flyfishing
    And now with theese dark evenings and bad weather, paperbuilds are a suitable
    hobby.
    This is a time consuming hobby......I don't know how many hours it will take to komplete this model, but it will take a lot....
    But enough talk...here are the pics of my progress so far.

    This wa kind of tricky to get mounted in a nice way....but in the end the result didn't turn out that bad after all.

    Now I have started on the tail section, pics will follow

    I have now finished the Tail section, but I can't find the charger to my camera....so I don't have any new shots, but I have ordered a new charger that will come next week, so I'll post some new shots then :)

    Hello,

    Wow! Nice model! :) I like it. ;-)

    Great applauses (unfortunately, there's no icon representing applauses)

    I'm going to follow your topic with great interest. By the way - the lighting? Are you going to make the model lighting from LED's and light bulbs?

    Thats all. Thank you for such interesting build. Good luck! ;-)

    I have not concidered to make any lightning on the model, but now as you have pointed me to led's (which I have lots of at work) I might go for that solution :)

    I will try to finish the tail section the coming week.

    that's an impressive kit. Quite challenging, isn't it? watching the upper view of the tailplane, i noticed that the camouflage scheme is discontinue at the tail roots, and also in the vertical fin spine the design is not continue. could you check the correctness of the pages? I'm very interested in this kit, but if it suffers such bad patches misalignments i won't buy.

    LOL the errors you see is fully my fault.....
    I wasnt precise enough when I made the tail,but as my second build I'm quite happy with the result so far.I'm gonna build this aircraft again sometimes,and I think it will stand out far better then.I have used way too thick photopaper for the texture,and my karton is not the way it should be....we don't have proper karton here in Norway, so it's a mix of different types I have found suitable.
    But the thickness is not right. It's a lot of fun building it anyway.

    As a second model it really is impressive some careful edge painting would make it look superb and hide all the errors can't see many anyway
