This is my first model presented here, so please be understanding .
This paper kit was published by Kartonowa Kolekcja, one of the relatively small, but popular Polish publisher of paper models. The model, desined by Pawel Mistewicz, shows the machine which belonged to RAF 67 Squadron and was operated by P.M. Bingham-Wallis (December 1941, Burma).
The kit itself is rather simple without too many details and is intended for beginners to modelers having already some experience. As rather basic kit you can see quite few simplification, which are quite natural for paper models. This is especially visible on the cowling of the model. Knowing these limitations of the kit I tried to push the envelope a little by trying to form some parts to more resemble the original subject (spinner, cowl). Paper (or more precisely cardstock) is quite suitable for this kind of operations, with some limitations of course. So this is it. I hope those of you who expressed some interest in the other thread won't be disappointed.
I'm still not sure what is the preferable format for showing pictures here, so please excuse if this causing any inconvenience on your side. All the thumbnails are clickable if you would like to see photo in a bigger format. I apologize for the background, I didn't realize how awkward it will come out (lesson for later...)
So here it goes:
