PZL-104 35A Wilga Aircraft Paper Model

E-mail Print

I am an aircraft lover since I was a kid, Wilga caught my eye when I visit Satria Mandala Museum. There is a Wilga or Gelatik in that museum as a static display, it can't fly anymore, the color is yellow. It was belong to TNI AU as a utility aircraft. I need a simple plane to make in to paper model, so I remember I did took some photos of Gelatik. I was going to use those photos as references but unfortunately some photos are out of focus. So I google it and decided to make a 35A version (PZL-104 35A) because it looks like more popular than the 2C version (Gelatik). The paper model shapes are quite simple, just 2 pages of patterns, but there are few of small parts. To fit its wing template in A4 paper so I make the scale of this model aircraft 1:40.

Ferocious Frankie P-51D Mustang - Aircraft Paper Model

E-mail Print

This is the second times I ever designed a paper model template using cardboard as former, the first one is a commercial model and also a plane. This model is different from the rest of plane models that are found at paper-replika.com. There are almost no glue tabs or glue flaps on this template. So how can we assembly the parts if without glue flaps? That's why this template needs another paper type, we need 1.5 mm cardboard for the plane skeleton and 150-160 gsm plain paper fo the aircraft skin. We will use cardboard edge to join one part to another.

I already made a preliminary build on this model and I already made an adjustment and this is the final ready-to-build template. The reason I made this Ferocious Frankie P51D Mustang model is because its color, the color combination is very eye catching to me. Also I have an RC plane with this color scheme, it's so beautiful. There will be another color scheme in the future using this template as a base. The scale is 1:33, the built model will have 37 cm (14.4 inches) wingspan.

RQ-7 Shadow UAV Paper Model

E-mail Print

Do you remember Kim, he is from South Korea who frequently recolor Paper Replika F-18 Hornet and F-15 Eagle? He is now designing his own paper model. This is his first try under DAEHO publishing (DH) - Hardcraft, and I must say his work very good quality for the first timer. He created a pattern of a US Army RQ-7 Shadow in 1:12 scale, it is a unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for aerial surveillance and other purposes related to it. The patterns are very detail and by looking at this template with all formers and without the use of flaps (glue tap), I can say this model is not for beginner. The model is very beautiful and detail, but this is for advance paper modeler and I know this type of patterns is very familiar and preferably by aircraft paper modeler. He shares the patterns to all of us for free. I  leave the file as the original file which Kim sent to me, plus I split it into 4 small parts just in case you have trouble downloading the full size (11 MB). The pattern is in PDF with no password. Assembly instruction is included in that file.
