I tried to make this model using Paper Models over a year ago but I did not get very far. I decided to try using the plastic models like the original built model. I'm still collecting the models needed to complete my plastic model build.
Here is a pic of the paper models and of the plastic model.

I think that is the same picture I'm making mine from. Although, I am making it a bit more box like so anyone can build it. And to keep it from taking 6 months to finish...

Here is the first page. I need someone to give it a try and let me know how things go!

I have built 3 of them now and need some fresh eyes on it.

I'll try it tonight but in black and white. I have no color ink and I can't afford to buy any yet.

im in the same boat as you. warning. grey is NOT made of black and white. its mostly blue. so if you dont have colored ink, you wont be able to see anything grey

Thought I would go ahead and put up the next page for you.

I am currently building two variations of the nose/bridge section. One is more accurate the other is easier to build.

Hope you can print enough of them in B&W to use!

Here are some pictures of what I have so far. I'm doing final tweaks on the 2 nose/bridge pieces.

As you can see, I have added a second set of wings (fins) angled with the lower nacelles.

The simple nose here isn't finished enough to attach.

No one posted, but I thought you might be ready for the fins at this point.

On mine, I left the edges flat and painted them with Italian Sage to match the rest.
