    Hello - here we are again
    The card model Conair CS2F "Tracker" water-bomber is here, 1:72 and FREE. Again, any comments dealing with errors, improvements etc are VERY welcome. As far as improvements are concerned, I am not very happy with the landing gear. It's a question of authenticity and strength - authenticity and strength means using cocktail sticks, not a very good method for a strictly CARD modeller. On the other hand, authentic and to scale using only paper means that if a fly lands on the fuselage, the landing gear can collapse. Also, the rounding on top of the cockpit. Any comments?
    Again have fun
    Bob

    I've always wanted a Stoof, but I don't see a link in your post.

    I think that a strong landing gear is better. Paper is made from wood and I found a lot of good paper models that use pins an wires to strengthen some parts!
