Making your own paper models
Posted by deksiko on Sunday, October 17, 2021 8:35 AM

Hello!

After few years of making paper models of well known paper models producers I start to make my own using a blender, incscape and photos hop programs. I think it's an interesting adventure. And one of the last "projects", it is model of ex Yugoslav AF trainer seagull G4 prototype ser. no 23005 in scale 1 to 32.

Well;

        This is good if you can do it. What I have done for myself is copy, say the hull, with no name printed on it, or other kit originaldetails, and then made sure of the color etc. then built a totally different ship using what became a generic Hull. All new scractch - built upper works from Paper and .010 sheet plastic.

       But, I should've said this too,Darned great looking planes. I don't really have much room for planes but I will build one once in a while for friends. From 1/24 patterns I got from an old friend back east Mostly Pipers(older ones)Cessnas and Aeroncas

That's some very impressive work deksiko and a beautiful result. If you don't mind me asking about how many hours did it take to complete the project?

Thank you for nice comment. For projekting 3D this particular model I spent about 1 month 1 to 4 hour per day dipends of free time, for coloring and details drowning about 10 days and for assembling about 30 to 40 hours because of many small parts of undercarriage and in cabine.
