    Hello everyobdy!

    I'd like to show some photos of my recently completed card model, famous soviet Lavochkin La-5FN:

    The model is mostly in its natural printed colors, although I 'rubbed in' some dry chalks powder on some areas to mask joints and damages to the print. Finally the model was covered with acrylic varnish to get it look less 'paper'.

    It most definitely doesn't look like paper.
    That could easily pass as plastic.

    Top notch.:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Looks real good. The rubbed in chalk and the protective spray gives it a nice realistic look. :thumb:

    It looks awesome. It really doesn't seem build with paper.

    Thanks for your very nice comments :)
    Nemesis7485 - the brand I used was 'Amsterdam' matt varnish from 'Talens' (spray).

    Wow! I am also blown away!. I like the way you engraved the panel lines and rivets.

    Beautiful job!

    There are no seams! How is it possible! I never imagined such compound curves could be possible. Great work. :thumb: How do you do it?

    Excellent model. What paints did you use for colouring the cut edges of the paper?

    Thank you :)
    For the edges I use the "Tempera" paints (I'm not sure how they call it in english) - they are water-soluble paints which you can mix on a pallette to obtain desired colour and dry it out. It is then ready to use by rubbing the wet brush on it.
