    Here is my first card model design. Based on the Flaptter from a Japanese anime Laputa, Castle in the Sky. The final color beta looking good, and I can finally say it is done! ....... oh... wait, I still got the instructions to do.

    I renaming my model FOLLETTO cause I just like the sound of it better then Flaptter. It looks like Italian to me anyway. Color scheme cross from Macchi Racer, but mostly from Titiana's Vanship in The Last Exile anime. The model was suppose to be done well over a month ago. But, it went through a a lot of design changes. Plus, I also got distracted with the 2nd and 3rd card model I was design in 3D, which I am putting aside to get the Folletto done first. I added a few of my own touch, but kept the original design parts as option in the kit. The model is 1/6 scale( loosely). Wingspan is over 40 inches wide. Parts cover 30 pages of A3 paper. Not including front cover and instructions, which I am working on the at the moment.

    I'm going to offer this kit as printed kit only, not e-card download. Just because I really want to see my design professionally published. Maybe a ego thing, I guess. I'll print just enough or whatever the minimum will be, keep a few printed for myself and hope to sell all the rest to cover the printing cost. So, it will be a very limited run. Kind of like a garage kit but made in paper not resin. Don't know how much per kit yet. I still have to finish the instructions, sent template files to Legalzoom. Then, I can go talk to some printers. When everything done, hopefully soon. It will be available at my website. Thank you very much for looking.

    For your first design, you did an OUSTANDING job on it.
    I am very impressed with your skills and attention to detail.
    I have seen the Japanese anime Laputa, Castle in the Sky, and I have to say that your verson is by far better then the one in the movie.

    KUDOS to you on a fine job well done.

    Goodduck sells these. I was gifted one by him. In itself, just the book, is a work of art. I highly recommend it, if he has any left. Allen Tam is a very well know artist, and has his work in many famous movies. Anyone who has not checked out this website, they should!!

    You are more then worth the kind words.
    I am not trying to sound mean, but you should never sell yourself short.
    I meant every word that I said about your work.
    You truly are (not only a professional, but you are) a master at this craft.
    From what I have seen of your work, it is (indeed) museum quality.
    I look forward to seeing more of what you have in mind to come up with.
