  1. I'm impressed with the planes paper-models!
    they have the same look as plastic models!
    (but I suppose that they are not easy to build...)


    1. You are right, Sam, this is a really complex model!

      Thanks for the visit!


  2. Incredible paper-model-plane! I love it, a great model!

  3. this is, the best papercraft model of s ll time!! although this is 2016, it has no flaws other than the complexity, and the fact you need to print it in different kinds of paper. 180 - 80 grams, so keep thst in mind. now people are screaming, IF they stumbled upon this page becuzz 2012, how do you get it, i csnt find it!!! now, if you click tje link you get redirected to a polisch domain server. a dead end. but just copy the URL and go to: Waybackmachine. paste the URL. it may take a second but it finds the same polish fomain server. now there is a timeline on the upper right corner. draw it all the way back to 2008 (above also works, but dont know how far it can get) and you will get 4 pictures of parts, and a LOT. download everything, just works with pdf. DONT forget 'instuktja' because without, its impossible to build. then, print it an you have a totaly free, 20 euros worth, high end, high quality and highly detailed modelplane!!i really like this thing!! i hope I helped somebody. i stumbled upon this a few days ago. i didnt thought i could still get it. glad i got it. sucsess to every one who wanna build it.

    they say: "nothing is for free in this life". no, not all, but there is certainly a lot that is!
