  1. Thanks, Larry. My printer is very low end, so I doubt if I would have much luck printing, let alone assembling, paper aircraft. I was hoping that some company made hard copies already in 1/144th scale. Seemingly pdfs and rescaling are required to get there. Again, thanks for the info!

    Hi Darryl....two things I want to mention.... for very small paper models, use 65lb cardstock. Heavier cardstock is too difficult to form. Before resizing a model to 1/144, build the fuselage at full FG scale to see how it goes together. You could do this in B/W to save color ink if you want.

The Voss Effect

by predhead on 04-25-2024 at 13:18


I have been working a bit with camelbeagle on a Voss scenario. Well, Dan has been doing most of the work, but I have been making a few suggestions about setup, aircraft, using more accurate climb rates, that sort of thing. For those who do not know, I have a side business - I give tours and talks related to the Civil War - American that is. So, historical accuracy is fairly important to me. Dan has planned a four on four fight, simply to keep the amount

Using Magnets to Overcome Beveled Stands

by predhead on 04-22-2024 at 14:13
An idea that was presented here on the 'drome, and then motivated by camelbeagle. Seems to work!

Five Pegs and Altitude

And one cannot use multiple pegs to represent the advanced altitude as the pegs will tumble...broken

Polish-Soviet War II

by predhead on 01-22-2024 at 15:57
While not a lot has happened on this front in terms of getting aircraft painted, I was able to grab a Sopwith Camel repaint that camelbeagle picked up I believe from an eBay purchase (if the Camel in the picture was painted by one of the members of this forum, please let me know!). I know of at least one Camel in the Kościuszko Squadron that was brought in by one of the British members of the unit, however the artwork I have seen has the squadron insignia closer towards the tail, and does not

The Polish-Soviet War Project

by predhead on 09-14-2023 at 13:10


Yeah, I need an intervention as I have plenty of projects to work on, but this one intrigues me. At one time I was going to do a 1792 Russian-Polish War project in 15mm, but alas the company that started making the figures never released more than a few packs, and the project withered on the vine. But as part of that project I read a bio on Andrzej Tadeusz Bonawentura Kościuszko and
