    Wow, I can't believe that's your first! Mine first one looked so bad that I gave up and didn't try again for like 2 years. lol Congrats! You're going to LOVE this hobby! It's easy, and it's portable for us military guys!

    f18fixer, I &^%* YOU..
    Just kidding. That is amazing.

    Your plastic models must be amazing if your first paper craft model turned out like that.


    What an awesome idea too where you are.
    You can get tons of models, and you basically have everything you need.
    Smart and talented.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Stay safe.

    "Is that really Paper?"

    Looks Way better than my first build!

    My first models were cut from the backs of cereal boxes (Yeah, I'm older than God). The first "kit" type model was given to me by a Japanese friend. I was a very simple HO gauge train depot. I was quite into HO at that time and couldn't believe that instead of spending two or three dollars for a small plastic building, I could build much larger structures for pennies! Since then I've built a LOT of models, even the paper clock (three tries, one success).

    What model is this, and where is this from? Is this the X-15 from fiddlersgreen?

    I believe it is this model: Ken West's X-15
