    Here you can see what I mentioned earlier in this thread: Because of the different shape of the second layer you are able to look "behind" the steel layer.

    I think Rhaven sums it up the best. I especially like the shots with the Raider in them, puts it in perspective. Can see one mounted on the wall in tribute to the fallen.

    Thanks for sharing your build, it was quite fun. Thank also to Klaus for allowing his cool design to be modelled in paper.

    Warmest regards,
    Rick

    Thank you very much, folks! :)

    I'm working on the instructions now. I'd like to give you a "small" teaser, the title image in its original size (I suppose some of you might like it as a desktop wallpaper ;) ). Enjoy! :)

    Hello fans,

    I have (finally) finished the instructions and sent everything to Rhaven for approval and uploading.

    And here it is, the Atlantia wall plaque:

    Go and grab it before it falls into the Nubian sun! ;)

    Have fun and enjoy! :)

    And please post pictures of your build.

    Revell-Fan :)

    Dearest friends and fellow paper warriors,

    thank you VERY MUCH for making this the most-liked thread and number 3 of the most-read threads of this forum. I am totally overwhelmed at the positive response. :)

    Since this project is as good as complete (I'd like to post a few more pictures) I want you to know that I have switched back to two other projects you might already know of (OK, to be honest, there are three / NO, the third is NOT the battlestar! ;) ): the Aurora and the Viper Mk. I. Stay tuned for updates in the particular threads.

    Have a nice day and have fun and enjoy!

    RF :)

    @sjsquirrel : It's such a pleasure to see you again, Steve (I really missed you) ! :) Great that you like it - and don't worry for tuning in a bit late. ;)
