    Anyone fancy a break from figs and go at building 1/76 tanks for free should visit this site:

    The L/H list opens up to allow you to download a whole new world of paper models (mainly WW1 plus a few aircraft and even a Zeppelin).

    There's also a 1/35 railway gun.

    Nice one Neil (y)
    There's a chappie in our club who likes his paper models (currently building a 32nd Mosquito) Obviously there are limitations in terms of scale appearance, but they have a charm all of their own and, of course, if you muck a bit up you can always print it off again. No need to stick to the scale suggested - simply print them off at a different size to give different scales (Ian built a Saturn V rocket which when assembled is 11' tall!) :cool:

    Yes, I thought about printing them off in different scales as well (up to 1:1!)... as long as things stay in proportion.

    That was a lesson learned when in primary school I was making a paper model of a viking longship and, realising that the card was larger than the template required by 4 inches, so I just added that to each dimension. Teacher had to explain to me why I now had a longer but rather wide/tall ship...LoL.

    Served me in good stead and many years later I showed my sons how to make them (and explained about ratios and proportions)

    Yeah very good idea and your release is just fantastic! (y):D

    Not my release: I can't take any credit other than coming across them in my web meanderings. They're all from the authors noted on the site under Creative Commons licenses.

    These look interesting (the mortar is a challenge to most of us as its instructions are in Russian).
