Your models are absolutely great and i would love to build some of them, but i'm not able to do it without the tabs.
I really tried but it takes a huge amout of time to draw them myself and even then they don't fit well.
Is there a way to add tabs easily, a 3d Model to import into Pepakura or would you share your technique to
assemble them without the tabs?
Probably the best way around the tabs (and avoiding the fitting problems you mention) is to take a small strip of paper (I use the scrap pieces left over from earlier cuts), score it (so that it bends to fit the joint) and glue it to the INSIDE or BACK of the joint (where it won't show).

You save yourself some time drawing, actually make the joint stronger, and can make the "tab" as large or as small as you need without screwing up the seams.

I found that using painters tape, which can be removed easily, can hold edges together.  Use a toothpick to put glue on an edge first then remove tape when dry.

I really like your works, but it would be rather nice if they had tabs printed on to them to help ease construction (especially on the swords). Other than that, great job! :)

Your work/subject matter is intriguing. Balance and composition is spot on.

Looking at your Panzerfaust and Stahlhelm made me think:
"All we need now is an MG42 in 1:1 and an Erma MP44 to go with it."

I really enjoy your work my friend. :)

Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

...and suddenly my ideas list just got two subjects longer! ^^
I have a feeling I'm gonna be doing 1:1 subjects for quite some time, Uyraell...
