    Very nice!!! It's a tough job without ortho views.

    And I see in your signature about Embraer Phenom 100 model. It's free? I've followed the link but I can't found the model.

    As I work for Embraer, I'm modelling our Phenom 100 (not ready yet). The link I used in my signature points to Embraer's website, so everyone can know our jets.

    Thank you for your interest!

    Build review

    I'd like to share with you some impressions about the Koach build process.

    Chrome and Gold parts:
    Before cutting, I've glued them to a metallic paper - aluminum or gold. This is possible when you have symmetrical parts, once you cut the other side. If a part is not symmetrical, you have to 'mirror' it before gluing.

    I'm using gold and silver markers to color the edges.

    Here's what I've got with the horn, one engine tube and the radiator.

    The engine:
    80+ parts, some wires and many hours later, the engine is finally ready.

    I've transparent paper (overhead projector sheets) to build the lights. Here's the final effect, before coloring the edges.

    The foil paper looks great. It looks especially good on the engine and lamp!!

    That looks fantastic, Claudio!
    That gold paper is is really going to make this model stand out!
    I must go find me some!

    I started the cabin this weekend.

    There are two main parts - the inside (red) and the outside (black). I put the windows between them, so they can be firmly attached.

    After that, I set the window frame - only inside - and then, the curtain.

    Next step: the arches. These arches are 1cm (0.4in) long, so you must be careful.

    There are 8 arches in the cabin and they are located in pairs at each corner.

    Looks great! The 'tufted' upholstery is very effective.

    Head lights

    The head lights are awesome!

    They have spider webs on them as you can see in this picture.

    Well, to do these webs, I've used a knife and gently drawn them on the transparent paper.

    Here is one finished head light:

    Very creative! Is that a screw used as part of the light? Also, how are you accomplishing the gold effect?

    Engine and Coffin

    When writing about the engine tubes, you were shown the assembled engine.

    Well, the engine compartment is a coffin!

    Let's put the engine inside the coffin

    No. All parts are paper.

    Foil paper. As said before (

    Excellent solution for the spiderwb headlights! Foil paper + etched transparent paper = great idea!

    That's some very beautiful work Claudio! Both your design work and your building skills are magnificent!

    I don't know if 'step' is the right word. However let's talk about this part.

    These 'steps' are used to enter the Koach, as shown at


    There are 6 of them.

    Well, I've modeled them using 10 thin paper stripes (each 'step') and making arches and squares.

    As you can see below, the first try was not that 'squared', but I've fixed that later.

    The final result were 6 pretty detailed 'steps' (edges not painted yet)
