I'm a retired US Air Force guy who thought some of the unique papercraft models would offset working on plastic models. After warming up with the "Aliens" APC, I started on the 1/1 scale M41 pulse rifle from the same movie. Whoops, so much for crawl, walk, run... With a few 'learning experiences' here and there I think it is coming along pretty well, but it is pretty daunting and I've a long way to go. Have a stack of models downloaded to try next assuming the rifle doesn't end up a frustrated ball of paper in the corner... I've already found many helpful things at this site and look forward to seeing more. Cheers!
