    Hi Guys,

    I'm finished with the model of the "Royal Guard, Tie Intercetor".
    It's not a 100% papermodel. It's about 75 to 80% paper, and the rest are bits and pieces (plastic sheets for the core of the wings/solarpanels, pen parts and ping pong ball for the main fuselage and wing struts, lighter tips for the wing tip lazers and some fine wire bits for greeblies)

    Here's the finished model;

    If anyone's interested in the step by step of the build, go here;

    The build starts on page 4 and works backwards to page 1.

    Excellent!

    An excellent model Vahmp. Those lighter tips make excellent laser guns, and the ping pong ball for the cockpit is brilliant. Congratulations on a great build.

    Thanks SJ!

    I try to use stuff I find that is either disguarded or trash in all my builds (cept for the comon paper that parts are printer on). :thumb:
    Sorta ECO-MODELING. sign1
    That's why I don't stick to 100% pure papermodels...

    I look at everything (I get my gruby hands on) with an open mind, and see if they can be related to any models I'm interested in.:twisted::p
