    yeah, I forgot to mention... The original was 2 sheets of paper. The TY was one sheet (2 5x7's) If I remember right, that's about 63%

    And, I thought it was gonne be an easy one. No curves. No circles. No sweat, right???

    NOT!!!

    I have even more respect now for you folks that do this on a regular basis....

    If you scale this one down even further...and further...and further...etc...
    you will become instantly REALLY GOOD at this.

    Please don't hate me...lol

    To scale this down any more, and still be able to fold it, I'll need Borg Manipulation Implants in my fingertips... And eye upgrades to be perfectly honest

    I believe we all said something to that nature near the beginning!!!
    Keep practicing dude! The REAL point to all this is NOT the tinies
    (though it may be), the real point is to inexpensively hone your skills for that $50.00 model you got your eye on.

    Well, don't say I didn't warn you to stop me!
    I know this one doesn't look much like a Stuka (or anything else!:grin: ) but it is! It's a genuine paper model. The original looks to be about 1/72 or so and I printed it at 3%! Now I don't know what scale that makes it, but it's pretty darned small!!
    I had to shoot these photos through a magnifying glass! Here it is on my pinky;
    View attachment 8499

    And here it is in between a penny and the previous Stuka effort.

    I got the wheels pants on, but all my efforts to do the props failed miserably. Anyway, thought you might get a laugh out of this one.

    Chris, you are one bizarre twisted individual. I wouldn't have thought
    it possible, but you did it. Now that is small. And, it would make one
    heckuva forced perspective photo!

    WOW!:-o Now that is tiny!
    I never thought I would see the day when Texman would say, "bizarre twisted individual"! Guess that makes you the new King of Tiny!:twisted:

    Now that is the kind of model my cube was made for! Awesome, micro-model!

    Yeah, I am nuts. :razz: I'd really rather be building bigger stuff, but my arm's got a bit more healing to do. All I CAN do is this little stuff printed on regular paper...at least for a while. Maybe when I get my arm back I'll have to do some GIANT paper models!:twisted:

    Sorry Phil, this is your world and I'm just an obsessive visitor here. I'm enjoying doing the tiny stuff...but I wouldn't want to live here! Thanks for getting this challenge going. It's really pushed me to try stuff I would never have attempted otherwise!
