Beriev Be-200 "Altair" 1:50

This sub-forum is for the dedicated card modellers: those that build scale models entirely from kits manufactured from printed sheets of cardboard - which are then cut out with knives and scissors and glued together. The results can be spectacular.

I have a question for you. Whether, in addition Cameraman someone else is interested in this thead? If not, I don`t see much sense to write to myself and I think that would be better if I give photos of the finished model in December or January. I thought this is a forum for enthusiasts of flying boats and I will know your opinions, comments and help... :(

Best regards.

Hello, Bryan here:

We are ALL interested in what you are posting; it's my guess that we have NEVER seen anything quiite like what you are doing and therefore we are watching what you do, without comment as we have no experience of what you are doing.

We are ALL learning from you and I am fascinated by it.

I just found this website with details that might assist you with the interiors: go here: http://www.aviarus.es.tl/Beriev_200.htm

So, please continue to show us how to develop a card model of the Be-200 and when you have finished it, I will (with your permission) place it into the SEAWINGS Flying Boat shop and you can sell it from there to all of us!!

Just because we are silent does not mean we are not looking: we are, just struck dumb by the incredible lengths you are going to put detail into this model. Remember, not only is the medium of card modeling new to us in the so-called 'Western World' but so is the subject matter; very few of us know anything about the Beriev Be-200, nor have ever seen one close-up. So, you are leading the way for us all.

I look forward, as do the other members, to your future installements!!

Bravo!!

Cheers,
Best Regards,

A big 'here here' to Bryan's comments above. Amazing work Krzychu74!

For my own part, I had only stumbled on your sequence of posts in the last day or so, the reason being that I am rather guilty of only looking at the first few categories on the site and rarely exploring further down. I wonder if others are the same? Having looked in more detail at the 'lower' categories recently, I am amazed at the interesting postings to be found, yours included Krzychu74 so do please keep on posting!

Incidentally a friend of mine that I fly with in Plane Sailing's Duxford-based Catalina is also a CAA test pilot and has been involved in test flying the Beriev out of Taganrog.

Hello!
Forgive me please but I had a few days break in the design. Now I`m back to the work. I see that someone is interested what I show here. Thank you very much for your comments. :)
Cameraman : thank you! Next phase will be unrolling of the parts.
seawings: thank you for link! I see there passenger version of beriev Be-200 (Be-210). Maybe in the future I will make this type of this aircraft. Who knows...
Paper models are increasingly popular in Western Europe, USA and all over the world. Although their popularity is not as big as plastic models, but it is growing. Much of the credit of Internet and the possibility of purchasing by the Internet or download the models (free models), printing and gluing little financial cost.
I give my models to shop of Ecarmodes.com but I don`t see any problem to add this model to shop on Seawings.co.uk. It will be honour for me. :)
DavidLegg: thank you! I`m glat that my design like you. :) Pity that your friend is not here on the forum (I think). I think he could explain a lot about this plane.
TASSE: thank you! For formers I plane use card 1 and 0,5 mm (0,039 inch and 0.019 inch), rest parts will be on 0,2 mm (0,007inch) paper. Maybe this link will be helpful to convert thickness: http://www.geoghegan.us/cardstock.htm

Ok, Time to show next step of design. Today ladder, bench and rack on the rescue stretchers, which are in the rear of the plane.

I hope soon interior will be ready. :)

Hi Krzchu74,

so how long would it take you to complete much a model, once all the printing work has been done?

Could you produce some helpful building tips etc?

Regards
