    That is just Absolute GOLD!!!

    Thankyou!

    I work in a design studio, so there's a few people at work who would love to construct some of these models I am going to do one this week. Will post pics when I am done.

    They have the E36 325i (my car) and they have the 1973 2.7 Porsche RS! Infact I can't believe the range of cars they have! AWSOME!

    happy paper model making!

    Thats pretty cool I remember when I was a kid I got this book for a birthday that had "parts" you cut out of the heavy card pages and glued together to make a 40cm long Space Shuttle, complete with landibng gear that folded away and opening bay doors. Was way cool, and have looked in vain for it ever since....

    Yes, looks like fun, but how do you get them to fit on an A4 piece of paper?
    The Porsche fits with no problems, the VW gets part of it's nose chopped off, but I no have chance of getting the R5 Turbo to fit!

    have a look here Haakon:

    http://www.qsl.net/it9gsv/model.htm

    just finished my 2cv...


    i'm fully equipped now...got a canon ip 1000 printer which only costs around 60 $,scissors,scalpels,glue and heaps of paper (120g and 200g) still testing other paper like 160g and 190g.
    i'm trying to build all the little 60's racers from this page

    pretty time consuming those little buggers....but sensational when finished....




    only problem i have are the dark green cars like the brm,s....the printer doesn't recognise the colour as green and prints it black...but the mind behind those models obviously had the same prob (see building instructions for brm)
    ok...got to build a lotus now...
    cheers marty

    renomad.....i haven't printed out teh r5 yet but best would be to burn it on disc and find someone with a A3 printer....i found that some of the models are pretty small...1:43 scale or even smaller but if the picture quality is good you could probably stretch it out a bit and print on A3....
    try with photoshop....
