This model is a request from Paper Replika new Facebook group, Paper Replika Friends. On that group you can discuss about every model made by Paper Replika and also you can make suggestion or request of model that you like and want to be made as paper model pattern. Every request will still filter by me, and only approved requests will be made. This RPG-7 paper model template contains 30 pages of patterns. The scale is 1:1, so I also made its inner construction. The warhead can be detach but with simplified model. I recommend to use 200 gsm paper and thicker for its inner constructions. This Soviet portable unguided rocket missile is very popular heavy weapon among armed forces in many countries. Some countries copied its design or reproduce under license.
WARNING : It is made of paper and will not actually shoot, just for display purposes. Please be advised, it may built with paper but it surely look like a REAL weapon, please do not use it other than display purposes, such as carry it around on public places. You could have problems with authorities. You can disassemble it when transporting. On some countries possessing this kind of model is illegal, please be sure before making the model.
