    Hi all,

    I live in Shanghai, and have just discovered papercraft.
    Just built some Canon models, from their creative park, and also a Chinese Changzheng 2 rocket. Good fun, especially with Stahlhart's chinese collection.
    As you might guess, I like Chinese stuff, especially their brief but interesting aviation history.

    Still I got the Temple of Heaven in my to-do list. Looks like a lot of small parts so I'll practice on some easier stuff first.

    Looking forward to sharing with you guys soon!

    Oooooo. The rocket.

    Being fairly new myself, I havn't found a good source for the Chinese space program yet.

    Know any good sites? :wave:

    Wow thanks guys!

    The Gloster Gladiator bi-plane is from Stahlhart ( and I chose the Chinese Nationalist airforce version.

    The rocket I honestly can't remember.
    The instructions were translated by Justin Reinert, and following his google track into the Mandarin domain, I got to this site: which has a DL link.

    I've almost finished Stahlhart's Q-5 Fantan with China's first atomic bomb on board. A nice article about this plane and it's pilot can be found here:
    It'll give you lots of inspiration to make this build yourself!
    I'm actually thinking of printing out a piece of tarmac and have a pilot figure sitting under the wing on a deserted airstrip waiting for airfield personnel to return (read the article to know why).

    Pictures when the last airscoops have been fitted.

    The dragon is Canon's. Huge creature btw, and makes for a great ornament in this year.

    wow thanks for the replies guys!

    the Gloster Gladiator as well as the La-7 are from Stahlhart, who yu are probably well familiar with!
    I chose the Chinese Nationalist airforce version cuz of my affinity with China and its history.

    The rocket is from a Chinese site, and I honestly cant remember which one. The translator of the instructions is Justin reinert, and if you google 'Justin Reinert Changzhou 2 model' you will get a bunch of links to Chinese site in the Mandarin domain, but will get you a DL link somewhere.

    The dragon is from Canon Creative Park, and was quite a challenge to make. Took me about a week to finish.

    Here's my latest model: the Q-5 Fantan with China's first Atomic Bomb.
    Read this article first to learn more about the history of this particular plane:

    I'm thinking of printing some tarmac and a pilot figure sitting under the wing waiting for airfield personnel to return to their abandoned airbase. (Read the article to find out why). Hopefully it'll give you some inspiration to build this plane yourself!

    Best regards from Shanghai

    The Q5 FanTan came out really nice, I'd like to see some close ups of that! :)
