libor,

Wow, hey that's fantastic. Are those toilet paper tubes for missile silos ? Whole new meaning to the phrase "atomic dump".

Gotta be pretty light. Maybe if you put a little larger dive planes on it, you could fly it like a kite. Is that a balsa wood frame ?

Cool.

Myles.

Thank you for all kind words.

You are right Myles, the skeleton is glued on the balsa wood to be better base for cover and 2 mm thick paper seemed to me to hard to shape, so I replaced it with balsa.
And those tubes are silos as you correctly noted. They will be full of this :

I agree,

Libor, you should continue with a whole series of different paper subs and put them in some sort of punch out booklet (like you see kids books do. You might have to scale them down a little though). I would seriously buy that.

hmmmm....there could be a market there.

I'm just fantastic with ideas.....I just have problems implementing them.... :)

Thank you Milo for suggestion, I will think about it.
But now, this is just a hobby to me and relaxing activity. My real life job is "paperwork" and dealing with people, so sometimes I have that feeling that there is nothing "real" behind me and time pass too fast ... but not with this hobby, anytime you look at the model, you now what you were doing 6 months ago ???
My fiance started to make her own replicates of famous pictures (we have even find an picture kit !) so from that time one of our free time activities looks like this:

You know how it goes, we talk about last week, make tee and during the breaks make dinner and so on... lucky to have no arguments over different way of life which "she" would preffer and "I" do not admit ... at the end you have to choose something what suits you best, lucky who could find and compromise.
Btw, how you did arrange this - any tips and tricks?

Libor,

Great photo of you and your lady. My wife enjoys paint by number too and has done some real cool pictures. I always encourage her to express her artistic side. I hope you do the same with your fiance'

I was kind of (kind of) just kidding about the picture book thing. Sometimes when I see a chance to make a comment on the work of other people, I say stuff like that.

I understand completely your wanting to actually create something. It's kind of funny that you chose a paper sub when your job deals with paper..... I guess you're good at it.
