    Here is the Essex Class Starship Designed by Diego Cortes

    Has anyone built the Essex Class Starship, designed by Diego Cortes? I was wondering if anyone had a build guide or was there a build thread made of this kit? I am not certain about some of the connections [such as 15/16; 15/13] [curling 12] [best shaping of main hull 1 & 2]. Thanks!

    Triva (trivial?) background: I remember seeing the old windmills on Long Island, NY. They were grand old artifacts of a time gone by, oft neglected by a society too enamored with electrical motivation to appreciate the value of ambient energy sources (Funny how times change and old ideas...

    A Question about the Klingon D-10 from FASA...

    Several years ago, I recall seeing a site where someone was posting simple paper models of FASA ships, mostly alien.

    Star Trek movie paper model prop kits?

    Does anyone know of any paper models of the movie props, such as either the TMP or STII, or STIII-IV tricorders, phasers, or communicators? I found an old Obi-wan site but found them a bit hard to sooth out. Are there any out there that I have missed?

    Does anyone have any experience with, or suggestions regarding a WWI or early 1920's flying boat paper model that had pretty decent detail? I also have an interest in a float plane, so your experience with these kits, as to detail, build, and such would be much appreciated. Much thanks...
