    These are SERIOUSLY awesome. Like everyone else I am flabbergasted at the amount of detail you achieve in such tiny models.

    sidewinder, how are you re-scaling the models accurately? I've been having problems with this. I have models I re-scaled but when I switched to a new computer(windows 7 from XP) and a new printer. I can't get them to come out the same size as before. It's very frustrating.

    Well the ones Ihave been doing have been PDO's for the most part so I have been rescaling with the change scale tool in pep designer just changing the length, now whether my printer accurately reflects this I don't know but its close enough for me.

    Just as long as you use the same type of paper in the settings, it should be exactly the right length.

    Man, I LOVE that dreadnaught! :D :thumb:

    I love the Dreadnaught, it's fantastic. I want one! :). Where did you get the pattern. Is it in the download section. I'm a newbie and don't have access, but would to build one or more. Maybe the whole Katana fleet. Great job

    Because you are also a Star Trek fan, I would recommend building rawen's 1/5000 scale TOS starfleet

    How can you build these micro mashines? I have problems if my parts are small like your total mashines (millenium falcon). Great stuff.

    These are awesome! Ive got to have a go at some of these.

    Forgive me if the answer is obvious but where would I get these models from?
