    Hi Topgunner,

    I don't know about instructions in English, but if all else fails, maybe you can find a Polish translator website that will translate the sentences for you. Just a thought.

    Hope this helps.

    You could try e-mailing, the publisher. Otherwise, do what the rest of us do: follow the drawings, assembling things in numerical order. And if you get stumped, post a question here.
    No worries,

    Thanks Dave Thats what im doing,I just finished a 1:33 PBY-Catalina,took me twice as long but its better than waiting for a translation,anyway i found that some of the polish words translated into english (I google them)make no sense.Im working on a C-130 1:33 scale(Polish model)

    I don't know why I didn't think of this before. . .
    The Cardmodeling FAQ has a glossary of Polish words commonly found in paper models. You'll find it at
    And has more than you really wanted to know about card modeling. It probably hasn't been updated in years but most of the information is timeless.
    Have fun.
