    Another pretty exploder.

    I've always considered the RCAF/CAF natural Metal/Red/White scheme to be about the most attractive of all paint schemes.

    That is as long as you weren't picked to polish one of the birds to atone for your sins...(been there, done that...)

    By the way...

    Was there ever published any card model of B-737-200 ???
    Shreiber-bogen? Modellbogen-Kranich?
    If not, then maybe Jesus's will be the first one...

    I wonder, what are the "big" publishers on modern civil jets? I know Schreiber has some, but who else?

    I really want to see a card model of Beech's King Air family, especially the 350

    but if there's no one who wants to design it... I sure hope I could get a copy of the Rhino3D program... then I'll give it a shot... could be my very first card model design... :twisted:

    hey speaking of the Electra... I thought sir Bob (airbob) designed one...
  8. Yes he did and I have it all printed out and ready to build. After I build a few others that I printed out and are ready to build after I ---- Does anyone else have this problem? I see one I want to build and print it out and then another pops up so I set the other aside and --- and well you know the rest

    That's why I usually keep my printer locked away and use it once a month... :D Enough derailment, we're still eager to see your build of the Electra!
  10. Well I solved part of the problem, I installed a continuous ink system. It was a little bit of a challenge (mostly because I did not follow the steps properly) but onec I got it percolating (that's "going" for you youngsters) it works fine. My cost per cartridge went from $12 to $1. So not I am not so hesitant to print something.

    I have modified the GELI 737, downsizing it to 1/48 scale, repainted it in AirTran and Southwest airline colors. Nothing even close to Jesus's masterpieces. The only technique that I use that nobody else has talked about is that instead of detailing the interiors, I use photo-realistic windows. I go onto | Airplanes - Aviation - Aircraft- Aircraft Photos & News, do a photo search for the aircraft I'm detailing, find photo of cockpit and passenger windows. I then cut the windows from the photos using a paint program and paste them onto the paper models before I print them out. Adds a level of detail with very little work. Same technique can be used for any unusual emblems.

    I also found a 1/48 scale paper model of the 727 on ebay. It's in Federal Express colors, produced by 3-D Paper in Chula Vista, California. I've never seen it listed anywhere before. It is die cut, cost me $40 with shipping.

    I'm currently using the zealot's tutorial on designing models to create a Grumman Gulfstream 450. I hope to have it modeled this week. Then I will try other Biz Jets. Wish me luck.

    Post the pics of your B727/737 and 450!!!!!!
  13. What is the name of the company in Chula Vista CA, I live about twenty miles from there. I didn't even know there was a paper model company here.

    The name of the company is: 3d Paper. If you do an Ebay search for 280217932653 it should bring up the auctions with photos of the kit. I haven't broken the code on how to post photos with here.

    I will try to find some good photos of the 737 later.

    I built that one waay back in 1989. I am surprised they are still floating around. It builds into a very large and very beautiful model. The registration and fit of the parts is excellent.
