    I've got the template from the Official website of
    US Coast guard.

    The original size is 2 pages A4 but I reduce to one page A4.
    It is still bigger than 1/144 but I'm not sure about the exact scale.

    Again, no instruction. This time, I googled the actual picture of this
    helicopter (last picture) and tried to assemble it.

    Hope you guys like it. :mrgreen:

    You did a good job. I would suggest getting a set of water colour paints and a very fine brush to colour the edges. You will be very happy with the end results.

    Thanks for the comments and compliments guys, I really appreciated it.
    Next week, I'll fix the curb color and also flip the rotor blade.
    My friend just showed me his 1/144 Special AS365 F-toys Heliborn3.

    As promised, I paint the curb of Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin
    And then compare it with 1/144 Plastic Model

    Much better. Just a little touch up goes a long way in enhancing the appearance of a paper model. So what is next on your build table?

    The name of the game, in paper modeling, is to enjoy yourself. See you around the forums.

    You did a good job and are improving quite well.

    Just remember to paint the edges before your glue the parts together.

    I am looking forward to seeing your next project.
