    Nice. I gotta ask, how come you refer to model sizes in height and not length?

    Dude! You amaze me! In the last few months, you've built around a dozen models. You've designed or part designed around a dozen models! I thought I have time on my hands but you must have a time machine or something! How the hell do you do it??

    Not only that, but you must have an endless supply of ink and card.

    There's something not quite right here! LOL! ;)

    Looks great, I think that's a great idea too to have a portion of the Big G to mounts those guns to. Only thing is, which portion??

    lol...i dont exagerate when i say i only get about 2 hours sleep a nite!!
    i really didnt whant or expect this to turn into a huge project. i just whanted to look at the canon in 3d. i was thinking about it and the topside would be best for a mount as i could keep it simple.as soon as i finish building this ill look into my options. i was just going to do the one canon but i may end up doing a 4 gun emplacement.

    as for paper i just ran out after printing the latest BSG ships. i had to scrounge to get this canon printed.my boys will get me more for christmas.my parents are on notice for more also!
