Recently my area got hit with a microburst with thunderstorms and hail. Long and short of it was that electricity was down, trees got knocked down and blocked the roads, and everything was just generally mess. So what does this Zealotian do? Why make a card stock model of course! This one was in my to do box and since it was already printed out I got to work.

Assemblage of main body part #1 - back view

Part #6 left side wing - connected to model

Bottom part #10 connected to lower bottom glue tab of part #1 (had to start somewhere). Then working from the back I glued the wing tabs, then the side tabs until you reach the tip. Allow the glue to dry between each tab before you glue the next one.

That's it for now.

That's it for this build. As always Jan Rukr's designs are complex, but made simple to assemble with easy to follow numbers on the tabs for figuring out which one goes where. I always love what he has done with using one page for the model and another for the instructions. Jan Rukr - Alien99 is a genius model maker. Whoever you are out there if you have assembled one of his models do take the time to say thank you to this genius model maker for his wonderful gifts to our community of model makers.

Nice model!! These, if built with thick cardstock, would make excellent toys for younger relatives, who would have something hand made, and appreciate it more than a "ready made' toy. :)

I think that could be easily done. Before the bottom part is glued in place or "buttoned up" another series of strategically placed reinforcements could be glued in place inside. Maybe make a laminate of a series of cardstock pieces. That would make it REALLY tough. Externally, a clear coat could be applied to make it last longer. Kids are pretty rough on toys. Of course it depends on the kid and how special they view the toy.

I gave my flight instructors son a paper model of a Lotus Europa car. An excellent model. That was 13 years ago, he still has it. :)
