Card Model Planes
Posted by Tanker - Builder on Monday, December 18, 2017 9:15 AM

Just a note here .

    I couldn't help but notice this . In the Schreiber Modelbaubogen Catalogue the scales on a lot of the civil small aircraft .

 I thought if , one was to build one , of say the Cessna's then a model auto would fit in the scene with it . Most are done with Colored windows .This is easier to remedy than you think .

 There are also many of a scale that cockpits would be do-able . The scales for eleven of them are 1/24 . There is also included in this a Eurocopter BK-117.

   The rest seem to run from1/50 to 1/100 with a few at 1/200 . Although they are " Paper " they open up a lot of areas for which there isn't much  in a plastic scale model available , that detailing is a fun part of the build . 

 Just saying . T.B.

In Poland the most popular scale for paper aircraft models is 1:33 - you can build quite a collection in this scale. I guess if you really wanted you could pose a 1:32 car or 1:35 armor alongside with not too much of scale difference.

Here are some examples from the 'net:

Such a paper model is really worth a try! Good luck and have a nice day


All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!

Aw Pawel ;

 You have some nice aircraft there . Now as I was mentioning , you have gone the extra step with Cockpits and such .A general look in passing would get the comment ." Are those Paper ? Naw , really ? " T.B.
