You people amaze me....
Or worry me, I can't decide which...
Well, I finally figured out how to scale printing, so I had a go at it; just simple stuff;

The fish is 2", printed at 10%
It wasn't small enough, so I tried the Trojan Rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail;
View attachment 6361
It's 1/4 inch, also printed at 10%.
Fun stuff, but I have no idea how some of you guys do the really tiny stuff you do!!
Yes you do! That fish is really neat! Do one more...earrings! lol
That Rabbit is a hoot!
Wonderful! Does it still roll at that size? <G>
May I use your image on the Rabbit's Web page?
I'd be genuinely honored if you did. I've done a few of your models and I must say simply...thank you! Genuinely appreciated! Unfortunately, I raced through it and it's only a static model. Maybe I'll have another go at it later to get a rolling model.
The funny part is that the fish looks more real at 2" than it does at 11"! This micro-scale paper modeling does have its' own level of fascination...if only my eyes hold up for it!
But a real question; how do you roll paper at this scale for gun barrels, pitot tubes, etc.? This is all a bit new to me!
I, and most others who work in the small scales, will print a second copy of the kit on regular print paper. This allows you to roll items alot easier, and it does not show the edge lines (not as thick) as bad. For things like pitot tubes, I use the discarded tips of my sons insulin needles. For rigging of aircraft, I use a .03 mm clear nylon thread, colored with a sharpie marker.
I'd like to see someone build my Eagle 2 tiny, so I can design the launch pad small enough that it won't take up an entire tabletop.
I have downloaded your Eagle 2 (white) version. I will look it over and see what I can come up with. I like your design!
I am not making any promises, and don't hold your breath, but if I can do it I will!
I am not at all sure if I could match the scale in your diagram, but I will come as close as possible without imploding.
If you have any other files associated with this model, PM me and we can email.
Wish me luck!
Thank you, Chris; I've added your photo to the page:
Well, I had some time yesterday between chores and you guiys have put the bug in me with these little models:

The blue thing is a Tinpaper toy tank. The rainbow trout and the trojan rabbit are my ealier efforts. The tuna, the seaturtle and the smaller trout are sized for a paper diorama I'm planning, so they're not made to be as small as I may somday try! The smallest form (to the right of the trojan rabbit) is some kind of waterfowl, mergus albellus. I have trouble handling this one, even with tweezers!
Anyway, thanks for putting up this challenge and forcing me to learn how to scale my printing!
Chris, where did you get the fish patterns? I'd like to try a couple of those.
For fish, try HERE, or HERE
Nice little collection of tinies Chris!!!
You beat me to it!
The trout are on the Japanese site;
I like these trout kits and they look even better smaller! There's a link to trout of Japan at the bottom of the page.
The seaturtle (my favorite) is here;
The tune is from a page of kids models;
While the tune is caroony, my plan is to repaint it at some later date.
A shoulder problem has sidelined me from any serious modeling for a month or two, but I can still cut paper! I did a small version of the Fiddler's Green Stuka a while back to get my paper modeling "Hands" back. Today I did a "Slightly Smaller Stuka";

This really is below my threshold. I couldn't see most of the parts and I dropped virtually every single part!:roll:
I had fun anyway, even if the model doesn't bear close scrutiny. Here it is on the Stuka shelf in front of the earlier "small" version!

I really like doing small paper models, but this one is really too small for my eyes. But I WILL do more teenies!
I'm going to stop showing you guys my secrets! LOL
Chris...I don't know what to say, Incredible!, Stupendous!, Magnificent!
Dropped every part? sounds real! Slightly smaller Stuka? That's the understatement of the year. Very proud to know you my friend!
I hope your shoulder gets better soon!
:-o 'bout all I can manage....
I guess that this would be the right thread to ask the question. Some time ago I found a free 1:200 or 1:100 paper model of the Tiger I tank. I accidentally deleted it from my HDD and now I have no idea where to find it. It was without camouflage. Any ideas where is it? Your help is much appreciated.
I don't know if this is the one you had, but here is a 1/144 Tiger I available for free download from the Sega page:
Sure wish I could find out how to get the other models they show there! They have a Sherman M4A1 and M4A3, amongst some other fine looking AFVs:
If anyone knows where these models can be found, please let me know.
Try here, don't know if it is the one you are looking for but...nice!
I browsed the link for colorized versions of Yoshioka's tanks and found them here; unfortunately the links going to the purchase pages are in Japanese and I can't navigate them properly to place an order:
I actually got all the way to the ordering page, but I could not get the page translated so as to input the shipping and payment information.
If anyone out there knows how to figure it out so I can order it, please let me know.
