Greg, Jerry, and Mike, thanks for your posts, I am not ready to start this build, in fact, I
have not received the "kit" yet. I just set this up so it would be ready when I do start.

That being said, something strange has happened. Bill Gill was the first to post here and I
posted a lengthy reply but both Bill's post and my reply have disappeared somehow.

Bob, Can't wait to see what you do with a paper kit given your talents with so many other mediums. This should be very educational indeed.

Bill, Ted, and Pete, thanks for your posts.

The paper ship model "kit" has arrived and I am very impressed. I have called it a kit but it is
really a stack of 16 1/2 x 11 5/8 inch sheets of paper. The printing is outstanding. One real big
surprise for me is the fact that the parts for the bulkheads, decks, etc. that form the ship's
skeleton are laser cut on sheets of some sort of paperboard almost 1/16 inch thick. This is a
great big PLUS, something I did not know about.

I'll try to post a few photos later today, I have to go for some lab work this morning and I
still have that car and truck boxing project going on.

Bob

Bob,

I'll be watching this one as well. BTW, the last link on your 'tag line' is a goner.
