    Sorry, there will be no *.pdo file. I'm making everything in SketchUp and unfold the model manually using the SketchUp unfold plugin. This gives me full control over the unfold and makes post-processing in CorelDRAW much easier. NEVERTHELESS, the final files will be vector graphics, that means they can be re-scaled without any loss in quality. I'll be glad to re-scale the plans for you if you like and send you a 1:1 scale version. I'm curious, do you plan to add some custom parts to a fully functional bike? THAT would be cool!

    Still on hold for the time being but not forgotten! I'll finish the Viper first. Updates are coming in as soon as the project is on my desk again. :thumb:

    UNFORTUNATELY the bike will not be in scale with the Viper; it's going to be in 1/6 scale and a Viper of that size wouldn't fit in my living room..! :mrgreen:
    But there will be a simplified 1/32 scale version and maybe a CG file for 3d printing. And the 2-seater Viper is coming, too, if you want it or not! :twisted:

    Humm think about it a 1/6 Viper over your recliner chairs watching BG it could be fun :cool:
    (until your wife finds you :eek: )
    I remember as a kid siting in my paper box ship watch my shows was always a good time.

    any way 1/32 bike and a two seater WAY COOL !! I would want.

    Thanks again your work looks great!

    I'm still occupied with other projects.

    To all fans:

    Rest assured this model will be finished and released as soon as possible. I always finish what I begin (even if it takes a year, or two...)! :thumb:
