    I was wondering if there was going to be an 1/4 scale Apollo CM/SM-LM?
    I hope you follow up with a 1/4 scale Shuttle.:mrgreen:

    I think you could get a fortune for this model, it is incredible.

  4. A 1/4 shuttle!!!!! WHOA, I'd have to build that in the back yard, I think my wife would have me committed if I started on something like that.

    PaperAir has talked about designing a 1/4 Gemini next and posting files around December and moving on to a 1/4 Apollo cm.

    You are bringing back lots of memories!......When I was a kid my dad had several models that he had built mostly aviation but also Space program stuff, and lived, ate and breathed Moon program!...

    1/4 Gemini, definitely!

  8. I don't know about a tutorial but there's alot more detail of the building process on the papermodelers site, I could upload alot more pics per post there, I mostly posted finnished parts here.

    over the past two months I have been teaching myself the art of paper modeing and having a blast. I have been looking into some more historic stuff that I could make for schools and such and this caught my eye - what a wonderful build - I am looking for something from the gemini project, but have been disapointed so far with (for fee) sites or just plain too simple. This work though is stellar. :thumb:
  11. Hang in there a while...another builder-(Paperair-Paul) is designing a 1/4 Gemini, he may be posting files come November.

    Still.. a 1/4 Gemini? Here are some size comparisons, both of these are Ton's 1/48. The photo with the astronauts- this is what a 1/4 Gemini would look like.
