    Sorry, I don't know anyone off hand who would want a paper model of anything right now.:cry:

    You believe that, right?:roll:

    Of course, I am interested, you silly guy! These little gems are cool!8)
    I'm sure a whole crowd will be gathering here to get them also!

    Well, now that I know I have at least one person interested...:wink:

    Note that there are no instructions, but the parts should be pretty easy to figure out.

    However, before people get too excited - a newbie question. Any suggestions as to the best way to make this available. Is it proper to just attach them as images/zip to a post? Is there a specific forum where this should go? Once I get things sorted out, I'll pass them along.

    Those are great planes! - I am definitely interested as well. You can upload them to the parts bin is probably the best solution or you can find someone to host them for you - I can help out with that if you like. You can even do both! Kinda depends on the size of the models.

    I'd be interested in the planes too.

    Thanks for offering them.

    hmmmm.... yes. as getter one points out, sometimes it is easier to expand the size of the playing pieces and field than it is to shrink the models. just adjust by percentage and round up/down as needed. math (algabraic) is not my forte but as someone said " there's no right way, just the way that works" (for you!).

    My 1/200 Fokkers and Sopwiths are now available in the parts Bin.


    If you want to host them, please feel free to do so.

    Canvas Eagles Game 3/30/07

    Hello all,

    I just got back from my first game of Canvas Eagles at the local Hobby Town USA :D The wife and I had a blast :D didn't shoot anybody down but our missions were accomplished :D

    Here's a shot of a bit of a furball, I'm the checkerboard SPAD XIII (FG model done in 1/72).

    I've played CE for about 4 years now, I wish I would have found this years ago. I could have saved al lot dough. I have around 50 planes 1/72 resin and plastic UGH!

    yeah - you can take almost any plane - print it really small and put together enough (dont need all the details) to have an awesome unique squadron! :)

    the fiddlers green models i built where around 1/64 scale and do work as is for canvas eagles

    a down scaleing in print of about 56% or so makes them in the area of 1/100 and the smallest size i would want to build too many biplanes in in paper.
    i did do a neuiport in 1/144 from a fiddlers green but honestly cheated a lot...

    also yay my first posting!
