    Hi!

    I've made several card models over the years, mostly of spacecraft. But I also still have a couple of old kits unmade, such as the 1:200 Graf Zeppelin and the Leaning & Froom CN Tower (probably 1:300 ish, but it doesn't say.)

    I bought several sets from Alfonso at AXM Models based around the Space Station, and I have actually visited the Lower Hudson Valley Challenger Center to see their card models.

    After several years of not making much, I am getting back on the wagon.

    1. Here is a photo of a Mir Space Station I built several years ago. This was about ten years ago and I can't find the source of the pattern any more.
    2. I am finishing up the NASA TESS model.
    3. Maybe the most interesting model I will start soon will be the Mount Wilson Observatory 100-inch telescope card model that is available for purchase from the observatory's own website. I will update that to a separate thread.

    I don't remember the URL for the Italian International Space Station modules card models in 1:110, and they are probably offline, but I saved their PDFs back when I made several of them. My first builds of them have now gone the way of all things.

    Welcome to ZEALOT!!! That "MIR" is an impressive build. We''re happy you have joined, and hope to see build threads, and offer up any help we may have to offer. I'd be interested in getting the patterns for the MIR. It would be worth uploading them to the forum for Archival reasons. Let me know if you're interested in that. I will upload them and take full responsibility. ;)
