    I just discovered this forum a few days ago.

    Or, to be truthful, I just rediscovered this forum a few days ago when I found the link buried in a favorites subfolder.

    It seems I joined back in 2006 and had made 2 posts and then nothing.

    So I'm new to the forum but not new. :confused:

    Anyways, my main paper model interest is converting card stock rockets into flying models but I do build static models on occasion, mainly aircraft.

    Thank you for the welcome back. I've been a little stagnant lately as my model building area is in an unheated basement.

    But I can build a simple card model or two on the kitchen table from time to time.

    This is typical of what I've been doing the last few years.

    This is the 1/48 Soyuz launcher that I got from Lower Hudson Valley Gift Shop

    This is a flying model so I added a motor mount to the center.

    The last picture is it beside a smaller Soyuz that I built several years earlier.

    Here is launch day.

    Here I am loading it on the launch pad.
    Liftoff on an Estes D12-3 engine.
    Climbing into the sky.

    Last a liftoff on an Aerotech E18-4W later in the year.
