    Thanks Russell,
    I'm going to give it a bit of a break - I'm fagged out!
    I will start improving the 6 or 7 models I've already made - the Dash-8 I wish to re-scale from 1:90 to 1:72, the latter now as standard scale.

    Do you have any commercial airliners? Like a 747 or A340?

    ^^ I checked Airigami, but it doesn't have instructions on how to build the aircraft...

    Hi Redwolf!
    For my first 2 Canadairs, I took 2 H----- scale models, wrapped bits of paper all over, flattened them, copied them. Bulkheads by measuring horizontal and vertical distances.
    Later models a bit more sophisticated..... using 2 views of the aircraft from the internet (top and side usually, suitably scaled, I designed 5- 10 bulkheads, cut them vertically in 2 and glued them on a board of cardboard with the correctly scaled distances between them. Then I covered each bulkhead couple with paper, cut to size, then doubled etc etc. Then make the model numerous times, each time correcting a bit and so on. And then the livery ...... Help, when I read this, the perspiration comes! No more models for the time being. I wish to improve the ones I have already made in due course with details, rivets etc., basically always at a scale 1:72 .

    Ya, but I don't know how to fold the thing and I don't know what parts go where... Can you help me? Like can you send me a labelled diagram? This is the first time I am making something like this.

    Wow, that sounds like a lot of work! I've just started designing my first project , the aircraft carrier Enterprise, and thats exactly how I 've started on the hull! So far I have a nice stack of paper "rocks"!sign1

    As I said, I'm fagged out! No, seriously, I wish at present to improve the last 6 models, and then possibly a PBY.

    PBY is a Catalina flying-boat. By the way Administrator, why do I get no more e-mails, but have to check the forum manually?

    I am not really sure Bob.
    I have checked your settings from my end and everything seems in order.
    I will have to check with Peter and see if he can take a look a little deeper.
    I know you will only receive e-mails when someone posts a reply in a thread that you have also posted in. It could be that that just hasn't happened lately unless you post in a lot of different threads.
    If people are replying without an e-mail being sent then there is definitely something wrong at Peter's end.
    We'll take a look at it.
