    Today I finished a Flying Styro kit - 1:18 (?) model of a Glider with rubber propeller.
    I still need to trim it a bit...

    The 2nd pic from bottom - is that an Airacobra, right?
    And the last pic needs no comment.

    Hi !!!
    Unfortunately my flat is not too big and as a consequence I've been forced to do plastic and paper models.Some my flying models from the past haven't existed anymore.Here my two paper models I'm still working on.Both 1:33 scale.The first Su-22M4,the second Mustang Mk.III.

    I make them using "Maly Modelarz"- a Polish publication has known for many years in Poland.However, there are others publications in Poland with better done models."Kartonowy Arsenal","JSC" for instance.But the price is often not for all.

    Yeah, I used to have those during socialism. Along with the Czech ABC. ;)

    I know what you're talking about. I simply wouldn't give 30 EURO for a plastic kit, niether would I give 10 EURO for a paper castle... ;)

    That's correct.However, comparing the price of paper models to the one of plastic I have to say that in many cases they are equal.So there is a problem which one of them I should buy.

    Plastic, lasts much longer, and is much more solid.

    One problem I have with plastic kits is all the extra bits you have to do. The mouldings never quite fit right which normally means I have to break out the filler! Great models guys!

    Isn't it an old FROG kit? Cause I have the same, like almost finished, just need to givimm a coat and decals.
    Your's quite nice but the Spit rules. :thumbleft:

    EDIT: You know, after I looked again at them, I see they're completely missing any kind of pathina, rust&dust effects, scratches... Lanc, try that, you'll see it can do miracles.. ;)
