Jesus,

You are truly gifted. The biggest bird I ever built was a 1/72 727-200. Is there a website for the company that makes these card stock kits?

I have never seen something closer to the real thing...in cardboard!!!!!!! must be a great joy to patiently add tiny details to every square millimetre of this model.

Jesus, I keep looking at these images and remember the DC9, and it is incredible that the model is made of cardboard.
I know I said the same thing before but I just can;t get over how great that mode looks!

That model really is intense. Excellant job!

I have had some experience using paper/cardboard for model building and I have to say it is way more preferable for detailing than plastic is. Of course it is WAY more fragile as well.

Someday maybe I will detail my 1:100 Bader models to look more like the real thing....
