    I'm a new guy on the block. Recently retired and looking for a new hobby. I used to build models as a kid, mostly balsa wood, but some plastic. Mostly in my life I've worked with metal and wood to build "stuff", hence the title.... :rofl:

    Anyway, I've just become aware of card modeling and it really looks interesting. Many of the models are so incredibly detailed that it's hard to believe they started out as sheets of paper! I'm sure I'll never get to that level. I'll be happy if my results are recognizable.

    Right now my interest lies with airplanes and I'm especially intrigued by Bill Jones's Avro Arrow. Can anyone lead me to information and pictures on that model? I understand that this site underwent some changes and not all the files are available yet. I tried following the thread in JRTS Aircraft Competition As-Builts, but I think some of the construction pictures are missing.

    I guess I'll just keep on lurking and trying to learn how to produce a good card model. Any links to tutorials would be appreciated.

    Hobby Model had a 1:33 scale Avro Arrow. I have done a quick search online for a seller but had no luck. Has anyone seen this model and can comment on it's quality?

    What about the Arrow at Lower Hudson Valley? It's free:

    Can't comment on the quality as I have never seen it. But, the rest of their downloads are of impeccable quality.

    Good luck
