    Hi again... In todays installment of "as the Stomach Churns" errr I mean Papermodeling By a Dummie. :mrgreen:

    All kidding aside, a quick one page Dragon from the Canon Creative site. One page, one part cut out, folded, and glued. The wife loves it.

    Next project will be the Raptor from new BSG by Revell Fan.
    Off to the printer to get it printed at full size.

    Your build looks beautiful!

    Canon's papercrafts are top of the class. I have made their Neuschwanstein castle, several animals and the Halloween Dancers. It's great and almost unbelievable that they share their creations with us - for free!

    I will give you a hint on that model. Even out of thick card, in about 10 months the legs will start to buckle. Make two U-shaped pieces, one for the front legs and one for the back to keep it square and looking good. It's easier to do before the legs splay out. I know from experience ...
