    I think you underrate yourself. That is a good job!!

    Yep, that is a fine job! This is a great model, for anyone wondering about doing it.

    This was one that I did too! I think you did a great job! Especially on those fins - they are pretty big and I had a hard time getting them to not warp.

    The thruster and little details look really good too. I think you underrate yourself....

    I agree with the others - you have done a fine job with the V-2 rocket. Looks great to me. It was one of the first paper models I ever builded - so I know, that it is not that easy.

    When I built this one a couple of years ago, I added balsa stiffeners to the fins (inside, of course). I often overbuild models but it's usually worth the effort.

    You've done fine job on this one. We learn by stretching our skills a bit. What better way to do that than with a free kit you can reprint if you goof up.:thumb:

    No worries,

    My skills aren't up to the level...What the heck you talking about!?!

    Fantastic job! Looks great to me!

    Looks like you bought a rocket from an arms dealer and claiming it's a paper model!:twisted:

    my name is Michael.
    I build card models since the last three years. My special interest is space modelling and airplanes.
    I read this article with an very personal interest, because I visited last year the former P7 terminal at usedom/east germany.
    The area is normaly a forbidden place to entrance. But...

    Here are some pictures with an overview

    This is a model of the area without the building house at the right side which is out of the picture

    This is place No.1 Over this rim the rockets came out from the building house.

    This is No.2 This rock marks the place from where the V2 starts in former times.

    This is the view from No.3 You can see the original fire hydrant with my daughter.

    This is No.4 The rim where the testfirings where made.

    Hope you like the short history trip.
    I will post more "card" pictures soon!

    Wow! Those pics are so good I'm going to add them to my file of the V2 to help me when I get round to building it!
    Well done!
