I'm using a method that I found on Digital Navy website that does what they call "paper photo-etch"... what you do is intially cut out the part and do the folds to 3D, then unfold and using a #11 xacto blade, cut out the space in between the girder frame, then refold and glue.  This way, you won't distort the paper, trying to fold with such a thin paper spacing.  It does work.  So, that is what I did on the two cranes.  I have started the AA guns, there will be eight total. I believe these are 5".  I used thick wire for the barrels.. I know, I don't get a taper that way, but it looks pretty close.  Very tedious and time consuming, I'll be at this a while.  Dennis
