    Getter1,

    Fantastic job on this one! I especially like the detail in the engine.

    Thanks for sharing the build!

    Quick question

    I'm building the Rolland right now...is it me or are the fuselage formers a might-bit too big?

    Are they meant to be trimmed down?

    Thank you in advance - what a spectacular plane!

    Wily,

    The formers were a tad tight for me and everyoneelse as well :p On my last build they fit with a minimum of trimming (which I achieved with an emery board). The thicker the paper the more you'll have to trim.

    Wow with new life being breathed in this thread I migth have to finish my LK color scheme build and post some pics :p I haven't finished any of the color scheme builds after completing the final prototype, got hung up with other builds and design projects :p

    Thanks to everyone who downloaded and built (or building) this model :D

    That is an awesome build Getter1. I'm note sure if I missed something, but is the model available as a download ?

    Absolutely madness. Fantastic as it was, but how were you able to create the super, super, tiny details? You probably have a leprechaun eh? :p

    I have many techinques to handle small parts. Perhaps I need to show them in the tips and tricks section.

    Howdy John,

    I too wanted to congratulate you on the POTW, I just announced it and your build thread in a reply (entitled "where's Johnny") to one of the members over at Scale Models (where I am now moderating).
    I am hopeful that your work along with my posting of yet another invitation to the members there to join and visit this forum will benifit cardmodels.net with some new members. Likewise I want to again extend an invitation to you and the members here to join and visit over there. Both sites compliment each other in the fact that all of us are craftsmen or craftswomen and enjoy the same hobby of building models albeit different mediums.
    Please dont think of this as an attempt to "recruit" but more of an invitation to share yours and other members craft with other people, we have a section devoted to cardmodels so there is a place to show off the craft.
    Anyway, Again, great looking walfish and i am sure you will be getting more replies on this thread soon from people you may not have met before, ppl from the scale models forum, so "strut your stuff, show off abit and make em feel welcome.

    Have a good day and you have my email, hollar at me sometime,

    Greg aka GEEDUBBYA

    Congratulations once again!
