    I honestly dont know if its the same ship as this one or not... I dont know much about it other than I was asked to put it up :) Hopefully this is where it belongs :)

    just a couple notes. the .pdo requires a password to open in designer so u can only open in viewer and it only opens with one wing shown. have not built yet and as the .pdf has no build guide or numbered peaces it is hard to know right away if the other wing is missing my guess is its there and just left out of the pdo for better viewing of the center mass

    I haven't say what I am working on because don't want the Argon Buster to have the same fate as the Argon Colossus.

    The .pdo requires a password because the .pdo are the instructions. You don't need to use the designer.
    And with the missing wing its in the .pdf. In the .pdo its only one because I wanted to save time.
    I exported the project and the pages with that wing and I mirror them.

    I think I will abandon the Argon Colossus project its to complicated and if I finish building it it will have +30 pages, maybe 50 pages!

    Any more questions? :)

    Well cgutzmer I think it was a good ideea to post the model in the "Gallery and New Download Announcements" section, but this is a good place to. :)
    Thanks!

    oh man i didn't even think of a gate or station..... excuse me i need a moment


    ok. a gate would be amazing and wile still really complex, i should think it would be may times easer than a station. but you would know better than i sense the most i could ever get done was about a day into working on the colossus and couldn't figure out textures.

    Hi 4ce! You are getting good! Thanx for the model! I'm kinda sorry to see the Colossus go, but maybe someday..?

    Can't wait to see what you dish up next!

    Thank you! luciencarroll can you give some pictures after you finish? :)

    I have a tip for a part:

    AB1.jpg

    AB2.jpg

    Don't glue that zone so you can put a pencil or one of your fingers inside to attach the wing, without doing that is dificult to attach.Don't glue that zone so you can put a pencil or one of your fingers inside to attach the wing, without doing that is dificult to attach. I hope this helps. :)

    Thank you! Now I have some problems with the wings, I hope that I will fix it.

    Should I post the model on the X3 forum? :)
