    Continue with building the new wing, glued together and dried. Cut out and compared to the original wing for the other side, colors are now close. Let's check out the additional greebles, to make sure I still have them all. Another greeble to add, cut, edge color and glue it...

    Zergei619, I like your figures, they look great! I may come back to these, but, I have a Valkyrie to finish, will need some guards to secure it! Your link to instructions seem to have some good pix of the backpack, that is the part that blew me away. I will revisit that, later. I would be...

    Dr_Tetrode is down for a bit.

    Thank you all so much for your prayers and thoughts, during this time. I am overall, well, and the good news! is that the biopsy of the lymph node shows ZERO cancer, but, there is a long running infection of some kind that is the root of all of my issues, including the lymphoma... grrr...

    Finalizing the tail pieces. Edge coloring did not match, oh well, looks good when competed. Glue layers together and weight them. Using Prsimacolor markers for edges, did not match as well as I thought. Final look of the tail pieces, I kinda like the edging being a little...

    Hello, Zathros, yes, my second real Paper model... Did a little building in paper, a Canon bulldozer, and that convinced me this was fun. Quite a few Plastic models in my youth, some model railroad modeling. The first real paper model is at...

    Dr. Tetrode - Valkryie Build II - attempt with color.

    Begin by cutting out large sections, then color each edge, then cut the smaller sections, color their edges and then glue on, carefully! Some results, both booms, one with new layer and one without. I like them, with. When working with rectangles, mark a specific end of each piece...

    Okay Okay! I agree with all of you, so here is the process and results. Begin with printing out a second sheet, going to the garage in 14 degree weather, and spraying both sides with matt finish sealant. Then, waiting forever for it to dry, and finally, when brought into the house, listening...
