I'm not a perfect builder yet, there is still a lot that must be improved
This was my 1st attempt to build a Suzuki SJ 410 4x4
I had a Suzuki at that time and I could not find any replica toy at any shop
One of my friends send a plain fold up paper model
So I decided to change it to a more realistic model
I cut out all the pieces and start to assemble it and create my own  parts for the rest of the model

The scale will be prox 1:72

The chassis is my own design

First, lets do the welcome thing...

Next...the photos...looks like some good work there.
You seem to be dealing with kits that are far from basic.
But everything is a bit of a mess with glue, stains, etc

Maybe you need to work on "cleaning up" your skills first?
Figure out some ways to keep your work area tidier and your fingers a bit cleaner.
Some guys wear gloves...I just stop and clean my fingers whenever I get glue or anything else on them.

Are you a rush builder? impatient?...if so, you need to find ways to slow down and build a bit more carefully.
And try to control the excess glue.
Maybe you are using too much glue in some areas.
You would be surprised how much better things stick with less glue on the surfaces.

What weights of cardstock are you using?
What types of glues?
Maybe start a discussion in the General area? this isn't the best place for responses.

Are you coating parts with glue? or painting them?
Its a bit too obvious.
I'm not fan of that...but if you must, I would suggest trying a thinner paint, lighter coats of paint or glue?

The Messer looks good, but  I still see some stains.
And the Spinner is a mess.
No nice way to say it.

Do you have a scanner?...if so, you can scan parts before you cut them up.
This way you can print a test copy and build it before you use the good parts...good to practice.
Or, the scan works to give you replacement parts in case you make a happens.

If you don't have a scanner, try tracing the parts (onto some cardstock) as you cut them out.
Then cut out and test build the traced you more practice before you mess up the good parts!

A good model is greatly ruined by a messy build.
A simple model is vastly improved by an extra clean build.
Keep working on it.

Thanks for letting me join.  I just look a poke around and this looks like it is a good group of people to hang out with, just be patient with me because computers are a challenge.
I used to make paper models as a kiddo, we had a couple of old books with paper models in them and we would trace them onto blank paper and colour them, then cut them out and stick them together and play with the toys until the paper was so soft and weak they would fall apart.  Then we would just trce another copy and start all over again.
So trying paper models again will be like a walk down memory lane, with upgrades and updates (and no bratty siblings or cousins to destroy them)  ;)
