    I believe this was one of the first websites I found when I discovered Paper Modeling. I was so amazed at the range of models, and they are all FREE. He sells one, the Nautilus, an incredible model of which ou can find out more on his website.

    The list of models he offers is, look! It is well worth the visit. It reminds me of when a friend would tell me about a Hobby Shop he found a couple of towns over, and we knew we had to go their Saturday and support it. Same thing here. If you haven't been there, then go visit. It is well worth it. It is a cornerstone of this hobby. :)

    I believe this list is most of them, I think there are many more. What more could anyone ask for! :)

    This was one of my first web sites to find also. I have built many of the models on his site and plan to build many more.

    I would think that most of us have started at Lower hudson or have come to love the models that have been put there, I remember trying my hand at doing the space shuttle that I never completed, but it is on the list of to be completed one day.

    That's why I decided to bring attention to him. There are so many places, and new people coming into the hobby, (and a prod by ARMORMAN!). I did not want them to miss one of the pathfinders of this hobby. :)

    The real space models are simply fantastic, especially the different Saturn, Gemini and Soyuz versions, the Voyager II space probe and the massive Russian Buran Shuttle. The E-Gift Shop was one of the first sites I found when I took my first (serious ;-) ) steps into papercrafting, too, and inspired me to make my own models. Thank you for this, Jon Leslie! Live long and prosper! And may The Force be with you! So say we all! :thumb: :wave: :thumb:

    I'll echo the above comments. Lower Hudson was what really fueled my interest when I started out paper modeling. A few of the real space models still make my head spin when trying to assemble them!

    As with many of the old timers around here, it was also one of my first too. Leslie is a prolific designer and many of his models have been built and grace not only Zealot but other sites as well. Thanks a million for sharing your efforts Jon Leslie.
