    Hello Everyone,

    I've been building plastic model airplanes for the past 30 years. But then a couple of years ago, I stumbled across Chip's (Fiddler's Green) website and built some of his free models and I became hooked on card modeling! It also made me want to design my own models.
    I just finished designing my first card model: a 1/32 scale Gloster Meteor F.1. It took me 6 months from start to finish. Hopefully my next model will be quicker to complete.

    Looks outstanding, especially for a first effort! What software are you using for your design work? Looking forward to seeing some close-ups.

    Thanks guys for your nice comments! I use Adobe Illustrator to design the model. I scan scale plans of the plane into my computer and import them as templates in Illustrator. I basically use trial and error to get the correct shape. People will find a way to defeat locked files, so I figured why bother locking it. Give them what they want and hopefully I will have a satisfied customer.
