    Hi folks,

    Here are a couple of Aerobase models that I have made. They are 1/160 scale, made from flat etched nickel steel. I guess you could probably scan them and make a paper version, but they would be very tricky in paper.

    Here is a link to Aerobase's web site.

    They do ship internationally if you can't get the kits locally.

    Certainly not paper but definitely cool!

    I did see a site a long time ago that had a couple planes like this but from card.
    I think the guy lived in Mexico but I could be wrong.
    I'm sure someone has the link and will post it eventually.
    I think the guy did an Me 109 if I remember correctly.

    Really cool planes though! I might have to get me a couple of them if the shipping isn't too bad.

    Yup, that's the one!

    Of course, yours have a little less cutting involved and are a lot shinier!:twisted:

    Just a tad quicker to build as well - you can make a metal one in a couple of hours ;)
    I probably shouldn't say this, but they are a lot easier to make than they look......
