CorroSpit

spent some time this weekend working on the Spitfire. I had to really alter the formers sizes and shapes, and I still think I could make the chin look a bit more scale.
The elliptical wing was no problem to fold. I am posting several pics in this post for a reference for future builds.

You guys are artists with Coroplast! Very impressed. I built a few Mugis and scratchbuilts back in the day, but these are really nice.

Might be fun to do an aerobat sometime out of 2mm, try to keep it sorta light. Would be a fun indestructible thing!
