PDF Classic Version(w/ instructions, PDF, st.ash)
PDF Modernized Version(w/ instructions, PDF, st.ash)

FAQ:

Q: What are those extra panels at the bottom of the slide? How do I build the grooves?
A: Here's an illustration.. And here are the valley folds.

Q: How do I fold the guiderails?
A: Like this. Note that the narrowest face folds flat onto the widest face, forming a "shelf." The rest of it is a box.

Q: How do I build the rail base on the modernized version?
A: Look at its front and back faces. They should provide an idea of how everything else is folded. Here's a picture.

Q: What are the "inner sections" of the slide (pg.2) and where do they go?
A: If the "bottom of slide" is a u-shaped half-tube, its "inner sections" are attached inside it, to the larger hatched areas. Their job is to keep the spring front cap and the barrel apart. Here's a photo. Although covered by the bushing, they are partially visible from the front.

I have finished your model with some modifications, the build thread is here at Zealots zealot.com/threads/1911-colt-a…   and at papermodelers.  At the moment, I am working on the display case/box for it.  I may make it again but I have the schematics to build all the working pieces and modify it even further.  Thanks for sharing.

That's very impressive. Definitely a step up in detail. I'm glad to have contributed to something like that.

Where does the "Inside Block of Slide" go?

Between the right and left walls. In fact, it's what holds the slide together at the back.
On the image "construction 04" you can see the underside of the inside block. Note that it's not as tall as the side walls, and does not extend below the grooves.

The face with just a circle (representing the firing pin) on it faces forward: it forms the breech face and will be visible through the ejection port.
The face with a circle and a border faces backward: it forms the back of the slide and will be visible between the rear corners.

Thanks, but what side is up and what side is down?

The white face, with triangular tabs, is a curved face that faces up and matches the curve of the top wall of the slide.

The flat gray face is down.

Of course, it's a vital part of the slide and needs to be secure. Glue it to the right and left walls, then glue the top wall to it and the side walls.

I have decided to build you model and have started  a build thread over at papermodelers.com and at zealot.com.  I have modified the build to an extent that it can withstand constant handling.  I did away with some of the intricate folds and have used chip board and some thin wood to help in re-inforcing  the side walls and also strengthening the rail groove.  The gun will be re-colored by hand a black finish and the lettering will be re-lettered by hand.  thank you for sharing in your wondeful works and I hope to do justice to your efforts.
