Scenery: building a papercraft spaceship

 The Crotale III starfighter, from http://www.genetmodels.com/free-stuff/ , is a homage to the Vyper class fighter from Battlestar Galactica. All in all, the cost of the model is very cheap: less than 1.50 €.


 Cutting the pieces is the boring part, but you have to do it carefully.

  
The screw and the nut were glued inside the central piece of the fusellage, to add weight.

 
You have to use a marker to paint the edge of every fold. This way, the model will look better.

 Also, remember to mark the folding lines with the cutting blade, applying only a soft pressure.



 As you can see, the model assembles easily.

 I used white glue diluted with water (1/1 ratio) to glue the parts together.

 The model assembled.

Finished model, with the Qapu Khalqi emblem glued on the wings.

Iguana 16 - LOS lines


 Using a printed template (done with Word) and a wite pencil, I nark the 180º LOS on the bases.

And then, I paint a fine white line. Over it, a few layers of Clear Orange were applied.

Iguana 15 - Basing the thing

 So I've finally glued the models to their bases. The only ting that remains is applying minor retouches.
