    Nice looking build, thus far. All of the edges are clean and crisp.:thumb:

    Thanks. It's nice to work on a model without any curves. Thin balsa wood is keeping it straight and ridged.

    Finally finished! This model looks better than the weakly detailed plastic one I built as a kid. The aft engine detail really sells this model.

    18.5" * 8 1/4"
    Its a decent length. It won't take up too much shelf space.

    Nice size for a model. What weight of cardstock did you use?

    I used basic Michaels Store card-stock. 65lb/176g/m2. I don't recall them having much of a variety in weight. A touch heavier would be ideal.

    I see. I usually use 110lb, but the last guy that did the printing for me used 80lb. 11X17 and I'm used to the thicker stock.
