    That hinge is awesome!! I love the interior of the door. Excellent workmanship. The Ion Panels (wings) are precise, crisp, and clean!! :)

    thanks Zathros. i see a lot of little things everyone here does to their models and it gives me ideas to try so with mine. the ideas i come up with sometimes are like... umm, can i do it or not??
    and then i say to myself, why not??, if it works , good .. if not.. lesson learned.. but it'll still look good to me :)

    This is really taking on a life of its own. You are doing a FANTASTIC JOB on it. I like the fact that you are paying a great deal attention to detail.
    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!

    You have done an OUTSTANDING JOB!!!
    If I had not followed the thread and only saw the finished model, I would not have thought that this was made of paper.
    This thread has really inspired me to look at different techniques and ways of building models.
    Thank you very much for sharing this with us!

    thanks Rhaven and your welcome. i have shown a few people the pictures and the model and they still say " that can't be made of paper"!!
    the detail the great UHU02 puts into them does have to be seen to believe. that little detail i did with the hatch, i hope a lot more people copy and use it. it really adds more to it.
    and zathros was right when he told me that things like that makes it POP. i'm really glad i joined this site and will keep on building and posting builds as long as i can. i all ready have plans for a few other models that will hopefuly make them stand out .

    This model is exquisite!!

    I am so sorry to hear about your wife though. The Pancreas is one of those organs that really makes you systemically sick. Our prayers are with you. ;)
