Scenery: building a papercraft spaceship

 The Crotale III starfighter, from , 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.
