    I do the same thing Nothing does, I cut strips and glue them inside the parts. I switched to that method over the summer when I realized how much easier it was, and how much better it made my models look. It helps cut down on glue mess, doesn't require a lot of repetitive cutting of tabs, and results in the edges of the sections being together, instead of one above the other, which means less visible seams.

    The model was available on as an accesory for the Junyo aircraft carrier from MKF. But is not available anymore so I guess I have to send you a PM.

    Cool,thanks Dragos:mrgreen:!Simple to build,even for beginners(My classmates).
    They don't even know how to build Ojimak's F-4E Phantom(without me helping them).

    I've checked my email address mistakes:checked email address one letter at a time.

    And paragon,sorry about the request for tabs...I'm just not familiar with models with no tabs...please include the YF-4E version that SMWulph just showed into your 'to design' list.Thank you.

    I did some work on the F-106, but I've been busy and distracted, and kind of lost interest in aircraft for a little while. I'm sorry, I promise I'll get back to them'll just probably take awhile.

    i understand your frustrations with tabs especially when the model built is quite small...

    sometimes we must ditch with the instrustion and improvise?

    so how i do mine?

    when i like and want a smooooooooo0000o00o0o0o0o0o0th surface for my models, i often dont use the same material or card as my layer subtabs.

    sometimes when using the same card as subtabs, it kinda shows up as indentations even if we dont press too hard.

    i often use ordinary 80 gsm paper, sometimes i laminate, sometimes i dont depends of the strength needed.

    and heres a weird but nice technique i just developed:


    tab what?

    yeah, most cardstock are made of two layers of laminated paper, or if it is not, all cardstock tend to peel apart when bent. see this by folding a very small corner of cardstock.

    ok how does this work?

    you lightly score the line where the edges of the graphic goes...

    then you bend the tab a bit an pull off from the edges, start from where you scored...

    be careful as you might rip off all of the tab.

    now you have a nice 'furry' surface on the tab and that tab is much thinner.

    now you can glue together now.

    now if you like to strengthen it by laminating thin paper, its ok.

    i would be 90 years by the time i finish all of your models..

    par, your are a frakkingly efficient human paper model factory!!! hot D!

    and dont 4get the lavi twins ok?

    i bet you are one of the damaged cylon models like tyrel. like him you are so frakkingly good with your models...

    well not all cylons are bad, only the damaged ones, and not all modeler makers are like you, they just cant make models as fast as you could!lol!

    how many so far?

    Umm...I used normal paper(A4 size)to make paragon's models and it worked out just fine,but I just want to try cardstock but I don't know what it is called in Malaysia.But if I use normal paper then the models will be like lame and easily tear apart not like cardstock.I hope someone knows what cardstock called in Malaysia.If laminating normal paper works?
