Recently some people I know commissioned me to build a model of the Concorde as a birthday gift for a friend of theirs. The picture below shows the completed model pasted into a nice sky background. The kit was designed by Ralph Currell and Erik Te Groen, and is available on Ralphs website.
The kit is designed so that it can be built in the flight configuration as I did, or with the nose down as it appeared for take off and landing, or even with landing gear for a ground display version. I had the patterns printed at Staples. The laser printing was perfect for this kit, giving the model a very nice finish.
The finished model now resides in England. Click the image below to see a couple more shots of the finished model, and check out these assembly images for an overview of the assembly process.

The very first paper model kit I ever developed was at the request of user GEEDUBBYA on the paper model forum at Zealot.com. He had found a 3D model of the Airtractor by Ronnie Olsthorn, obtained permission to use it as the base for a paper model, and then started looking for someone to create the paper model kit. If you’re interested you can read all about it, or just scroll on down and download the model.
For my first effort it turned out very well and I’m quite pleased with it. Pictured below is the 1/48 scale version. It’s also available in 1/72, and soon I hope to release a tiny (1/200) version, just because I can. The textures on this model are low resolution, but if there are enough requests to motivate me I’ll redo them and make a new version.
