    I, for one, am very much looking forward to seeing this model as you progress. If it's half as nice as the Fuso you built, we are all in for a very special treat! :D

    i am very happy and very proud for this comments,
    but all the merit is for the designers, not for me,
    i am a model builder since 30 years but since 1 year i discover card modeling via internet.
    i thing its one off the better way to make very good models with poor mediums. ( sorry for my english).

    Don't apologize for your English, you are understood very well. :)
    While the designers do, indeed, deserve praise when they design a great model, it still takes the modeler to advance the design into its intended glory. And we all appreciate when that is done so very well as in your models, as well as others on this forum.
    I am a novice at paper models and very much appreciate it when someone with obvious talent and experience shares their work. It provides me with inspiration to do better, as well as to give me the chance to ask questions on things I have not attempted yet.
    Thanks for sharing your photos!

    merci monsieur,

    i am very impress with card building, some modelers can make marvellous things with poor things. this form of modelism is not on the "top" in france, its a shame! i have discover this art last year with internet and i thing that is a good way to lead some people to work about history, small job and share with the world!!
    i am happy to do that, and i will forgrt my balsa-tissue planes!!

    Great work but please do not give up your balsa and tissue model planes. You can't fly a paper ship on a spring day....,

    I agree with you that using materials that surround people in their daily lives in a new and unexpected way is part of the "wonder" of paper modeling. I see it as an extension of artistic expression and really enjoy seeing "old" materials used in new and novel ways.

    Keep up the beautiful work.

    Best regards, Gil

    printer failure? wonder catastrophe!

    i to defer my arizona building because of a printer failure
    however i ahve to built some JSC models gifts from friends
    i am very impressed with the quality, very good pleasure with building
    i will soon send some pics from my work
    empire cam ship
    intrepid a c
    operation husky.... a great big work!! with crew 1/400 !! somebody can share exerience with me???
    hms invincible,
    and more work....

    impertinent remark

    i'm a beginer in papermodeling, but i thing that the extensive use of photoetcheds products it not a good thing, dont valorise this , its easer to make a hull with wood, the ladders with photoetch.., why use card?
    my english, very poor i can not exprim but dont leave the cardmodel spirit, it's a great form of modelism

    ^ It certainly is a great looking build and I hope philippe is able to work on it again soon. I remember reading a post from philippe that he had developed a problem with his printer and was unable to work on Arizona for the time being. :(

    I have to stop the construction of Arizona because of problems of printer, and also because I was not very satisfied with my work on the hull. I will go back to work, because this model is superb.
    soon, i will send some pics.

    Hi Philippe

    Great news that, we have missed your posts on this and look forward to seeing her finished.

    Sorry to put you on the spot mate, I just missed the up-dates and thought I would ask!

    Give the printer a good old kick for use, making us wait :lol:

    You've got a fan club sitting here just waiting for more photos on your build, in case you didn't notice. :D
    Hope you solve the printer problem and can favor us with more updates as soon as you can. I for one love seeing your work!
    Take care,
