    Hi Guys,

    I've got sometime this weekend and was able to assemble
    my pre-cut models earlier.

    So, I've got 6 types, 7 planes.

    I'd like to started with my patriotic one.
    RTAF Fairchild AU-23 Peacemaker.
    1/144 Paper-replika by Bob Navaratil (Originally 1/72)
    (Still operational in Thailand)

    The big Thai Words under the wing is literary "Air Force"

    Next one.
    1/144 Paragon Cardmodels
    McDonnel F-101 Voodoo
    Originally the scale is not stated
    but normally they are around 1/72.
    So, I print two page in one A4 paper.
    I believe it's around 1/144.
    I can't find the plastic model, so paper model
    is a good choice.

    Still in the century series,
    Next one, plastic models only available for
    Luftwaffe, Japan Air Self Defence Force (JASDF)
    and Canadian Air Force.
    So, again Paragon cardmodels is my hero.

    Let's continue with USAF Public relation team
    1/144 Ojimak F-16C Thunderbirds.
    When comparing with Die-cast I think Ojimak did fine
    on the shape of this plane.

    USAF Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk
    A little larger than 1/144 I think it could be 1/120.
    The 1st pic is from Fly N Thing. The visible line for fold really
    get good shape of this plane.

    The 2nd pic is from Maquette Avion Papier. No visible line, so this one I made is a failure.

    The 3rd pic is comparing paper plane with plastic model 1/144 Dragon

    The 4th pic is comparing with another smaller scale die-cast I've got from
    Toy R Us, Rayong.

    The last pic is the bottom of plane from Maquette.
    I think I'll make another one, maybe two if success, I'd like to have
    the body of Fly N Thing and USA Flag underneath from Maquette along with
    plastic Canopy and cockpit from Maquette. Hope it will goes well as I think.

    Last one in this batch
    Ojimak 1/144 Su-34 Fullback flanker (Originally 1/80)
    The reason I do this plane because I've already got
    Plastic model of Mig-21/23/25/27/29/31 and SU-27.
    I still want more planes but need to save the money.
    So, paper model is a good solution.

    I compare my Ojimak 1/144 Russian Su-34 Fullback flanker
    with Plastic model F-toys Arcoteam collection 2
    Russian Su-27 Flanker, the shape of this paper plane is in pretty good shape.

    Did 1/72 Fly N things and Maquette.
    Maquette still did't give much quality.
    I finally decided to take American flag out of Maquette and glued to the bottom of Fly N Things. Job done and go on to the next project. :p
