I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

Very nice. Looks like You have done a balsa-stick model, or two.


With the Guillows kits, the basic skill for scale props is "Laminate Your Own"!

Nicely enough, they provided plenty of scrap sheet balsa and nice scaled-to-full-size drawings.

Beautiful!  I somehow missed this originally.  But of course, paper IS wood, so it makes sense, right?

Just saw this too.  VERY COOL!  I definitely have to try it out.


Question:  Do other adhesives work as well as CA or is CA the only way to go?  Just curious.  Any addl hints or tips on how to sand or shape the prop?  Sandpaper, files, etc?


Thanks for sharing,
