    Nullmoon,

    Outstanding job ! Very sharp ! Is the detailing around the openings / panels embossed, or is it separate paper layers?

    To Surfduke,

    I just knew once you got your designs out, that this group would build some truly wonderful and inspirational models. You should be very proud of your accomplishment !

    Hi All,

    I agree with WunWing...'s opinion on titles.

    Can Nullmoon edit the thread title himself? I've never started a thread, so I can't try it myself.

    As for simulating corrugated aluminum a/c skins, some of the better hobby / electric train stores in the US carry a device for corrugating dis-assembled aluminum cans (cutting off the ends, slicing can vertically and unrolling into sheet). I don't know how this would work with paper, but perhaps someone here has experimented with it.

    Good Luck,

    i used seperate paper layers the card refuses to be embossed it to thick and too smooth looks better than my embossing experiments anyway by far and is much easier to acomplish it does kill the scalpel blades anything that has a foil layer does when i finish this ill try using the frosted silver card for the sm
    for anyone who wants any its made by a company called "paper state" and its called "mirror magic" i got it from a store and it was £5.00 for 6 a4 sheets ($10)

    Just another idea

    To put Data Sheets in Washer/Dryer Areas, of Our Homes, (We use the cheap Spray adhesive from Walmart). They sell it on the glue isle, in the paint dept. It too is easy to work with.

    Spray Adhesive

    It is on the Glue isle, (Paint area), @ Your local WalMart. It will cost a little over $2, a can.

    Have a great day,

    Carl

    Outstanding NULLMOON!

    Yet another modeler has set a new paradigm!8)

    The potential for these types of materials is quite vast, too...
