    I am building Koolik's great design. I had problems using wire for the railings so I just cut out the paper templates and painted them. Also reduced it by 25% so that I may have some place to put it.

    I also did not use all the revisions so my lines did not always line up correctly. Also probably due to my errors (and I make darn few that I admit too sign1). This is a well designed model and goes together well. It may look difficult but is really pretty easy (except for railings).:thumb:

    Great!!! Those railings are paper? Excellent work - how did you cut them so uniformly? When I cut that thin it curls up all the time...

    Railings look Great!

    Padre,

    Thanks for sharing this build. I think all who are building or considering find any input useful.

    I like the railings. That's what I was planning when I get to my build. I'm not a super-purist but I like to do as much with paper as possible.
    They look great.

    Thanks, it is a well designed model and I enjoyed building it. Now just to find a place to put it. My friend says it would look good in his home office but I am NOT going to part with it!sign1
