Hi!

As a little distraction from all the woodwork an my Victory models i built a cardboard model of a Phantom II - in a special livery of the 40year-anniversary of the Jagdgeschwader 74 of German Luftwaffe.

Aside from the canopy, where i tried out an aftermarket plastic product which didn`t fit at all, i`m quite satisfied with the result - regarding some major fitting issues.

Hi Walter,
It actually seems strange to see you working on something other than HMS Victory.
However, your usual skills are prevailing and you've done a brilliant job.
Well done sir,
Chris

Thanks guys!

Actually the GELI-models are quite basic cardboard models without a length of detail compared to e.g. the models by Kartonowny Arsenal or others.

In my stash i have a cardboard version of the Tornado with 5 times as many parts as this one (and very undetailed instructions in polish!) - which till now i did not have the courage to tackle.
Greetings,
Walter

Looks as if it was great fun.
A really nice result.

I'm well aware of how fiddly card models can be, but great fun.
I built this 1/18 scale Aston DBR9 a few years ago.

Hi Walter, A really nice model there. The detail is superb for a cardboard model. Well done. Stuart.

@roymattblack

At first glance you never would assume this to be a cardboard-model! Very nice result!
