for sure my friend but i need to got the book first
I've got that book. I don't have the info you asked for at the moment, but I will look into it when I get home.
It is a really nice book, though. I hate to tear it apart...
There was a thread about it a while back. Alledgedly, the models aren't the best as far as detail and alignment.
'Classic Paper Planes' and 'Historic Paper Planes'
I don´t like taring apart my books either - so I only very carefully loosen the pages from the binding that I need for a model, scan them in high resolution, and put them back in again. In this way, I do not have to follow the die-cutting, which in some instances in my books is not perfectly aligned or centered.
There is also the possibility of changing the size and scale if you scan the models, plus you have a choice of paper surface and thickness. And, best of all: just printing out a new part if you should happen to cut or destroy one . . .
That's the plan, Bengt. Eventually. I've always been a bit of a book collector, so even removing the pages just feels wrong...

All the best from
Edited in: If carefully built and with a proper nose weight (levelled at the wing CG), these models are also able to really fly - they are all 'flyable' models! However, I am not so sure I´d like to try with an original model. A word of caution: these models are not intended to be built with internal formers - I have thought about adding at least some. Perhaps I should try flying with a scanned one, though . . .
I have "Historic".... So I may not be much help after all....
