Astounding! I'm going to have to try this.


I started building my shelf of doom, but I never finished it.

Truth be told, I think the paper one looks more like wood than the wood one does. Great job!

I don't build aircraft that would have a prop like this but I do really appreciate the thought, design and workmanship that's gone into the project. Very realistic in appearance, in fact I think it's one of the best items I've seen on this site ever. And that's saying a lot, there are Mega brilliant models and ideas here.

Regards,

Bruce Crosby

Absolutely brilliant ! I have made a lot of props out of wood, but never thought of using paper to do it....I will most definately be using this method on the next one !! Thanks a million !

I would echo Bruce's comments above: I don't build WW1 aircraft either, but that prop is excellent! Very very clever and extremely convincing
