    I posted a request here for some free samples like these recently .Seems like a really nice cheap hobby thats not gonna take ages and perhaps get pricey like plastic modelling.(I did the 'Airfix' thing fairly seriously as a kid/teenager and it got quite frustrating at times...) However I notice not all paper model templates have 'bulkheads' .Are these not just gonna turn out like paper tubes with plane skins on them?What do you stick em with ?Sellotape?Ordinary photocopy paper OK?Any tips /links appreciated...

    If I understand correctly "bulkheads" means the form-giving parts, right? The I16 model has them, they are mixed with the other parts of the model however. The best you can do is to cut them out and stick them on cardboard. The paper models are quite stable then. The rest of the model can be printed on photo printing paper. For sticking the models together I use this:http://www.uhu.de/_uk/produkte/alles...les_extra.html
    That glue served me well over many years of paper model building.

    Or you could just print out the bulkhead parts on card stock.

    I can't find a translation for "card stock" but my experience says, that the best results are reached, when the bulkheads are made out of cardboard that is almost 1mm thick. Printing on that kind of material would be quite difficult I assume .

    Wooosh, found another one!!

    Under the following link you can download a Saab Draken. This one is special insofar, as it carries the famous "Ostarrichi" paintwork that was done when Austria celebrated the first mentioning of our country in documents 1000 years ago in 996.

    The only drawback is that you have to register the forum to be able to download (registration is free however and after you activate your registration via email notofication you can download).

    About this model:

    Dear modeller mates,

    as already announced by Rene, the original G.E.L.I Klagenfurt #70, Saab Draken J 35Ö 'Ostarrichi' is available as free download. I would like to thank Mr. Karl Wittrich and Mrs. Gertraud Litscher from G.E.L.I Klagenfurt Modellbau Klagenfurt, Austria who generously granted the permission to the card modelling community.

    Please stick to their conditions, otherwise the permission will get lost.

    1. the only two hosts allowed for d/l are www.kartonbau.de and www.microartwork.com. The reason is to have control over the distribution and in case the permission is retracted, the distributors can remove the files quickly.

    2. Every commercial use is strictly prohibited. The model is for private use only.

    3. No printed distribution. No eBay. If I find these files or a printed version on eBay, I personally will rip the seller's ***. Did I make this point clear enough ?

    4. The copyright is property of G.E.L.I Klagenfurt Modellbau Klagenfurt.

    We have prepared several flavours of the Ostarrichi Draken for your
    convenience:

    [...]

    Mr. Wittrich is 86 years old, but still in very good health condition. One reason for his generous permission was that he was amazed that people still love to build his models. He would be more than happy if modellers will drop a line or two with some pictures of their built G.E.L.I Klagenfurt Models to him:

    I always found standard PVA wood-glue to be the best and cheapest adhesive for card and paper modelling. I usually squeeze a blob onto a saucer and then dilute with a very little water. I apply it with a small art brush.

    It dries to a hard shell, so it's advisable to always clean the brush and saucer well after use. Experiment with dilution rates to find the best mix for the job you are at - and remember that it can pucker thin paper at the point of contact if over-applied.
