Welcome.

The Realistic Space series from Canon would probably be a good start, https://creativepark.canon/en/categories/CAT-ST01-5591/index.html

You need to register and get a Canon ID, but that's not a big deal.

Experience building paper models is the best way to figure out paper 'puzzles', the ones with no instructions.

Have fun

Hi all. Reading a lot here.

I made a Mercury Redstone as my first small forey into paper modeling. I am an accomplished Model Rocketeer (NAR Level 2).

I did 'ok' on the MR considering.
And anyone recommend a few more models (Space/Satellite or Aircraft) a beginner should tackle?
Free for now. Tho I see a few models I'd be happy to pay for. And if suitable I'd pay little bit period

Thanks and I look forward to reading a lot here! Especially Tips and how you figure out models with no instructions.
Jeff

LOL good question...I didn't think to ask if you had any experience.

While the PT Boat model does not require any advanced experience (in my opinion)
like all models it requires patience and a basic understanding of how to handle papers, cardstocks and the related tools.
And there are a few very small assemblies required for some of the Deck features.

but thats what the forum is for....
pay close attention to the supplied Assembly Instructions
and don't guess...ask here if you have any hesitation.

Welcome.  How 'just getting started' are you?  Have you done models with other materials recently?

Dave's Koolwheelz are great starters to build your skills before tackling the PT boat.

I am anxious to see this one, too

cool...I haven't seen the factory Elco Boat completed yet, so that will be nice.
I built the green and dazzle versions myself.

There is a build thread here that might help you a bit: http://papermodelforum.com/index.php?topic=7.msg8#msg8

And I have many photos from the prototype design and build, so if you get hung up anywhere, just ask...
and I'll post whatever help I can.
