    Hello friends!

    Don't worry, the project has not been abandoned. It is just on hold for a short time and will be picked up when other projects are finished. Stay tuned! :wave:

    If it makes you feel better, both the ships I designed (a 1:285-scale Leopard for Classic Battletech, and a 28mm-scale ISSAPC from Space Above and Beyond) I did in Illustrator, with the draw-cut-cuss-and-correct method. Then I'd color it all on Photoshop.

    The Landram looks awesome so far.

    I'd like to see what you have Kjev. Can you show how it's done?

    Revell-Fan, looking forward to more.:mrgreen:

    Don't worry, I'm still working on it! :thumb:
    Howevre, this project is on hold for the time being because of two other projects (Colonial Blaster and Buck's Thunderfighter mods). I really hoped there were more than 24 hours in a day... So, please be patient. CU! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Sure. I may still have some of the EPS files as well as the finished PDFs. I'm not sure. Most of what I had done got destroyed in a house fire a couple of years ago.

    Basically, it's like drafting on paper. You draw the shapes of one side, then the other side, then align the edges. Print it, cut it, make corrections, and do it all over again. If you look at the model of the ISSCV that sometimes gets shown, it's white, because it was a picture of a prototype. (MK VIII, if I remember).

    The completed models are available in the downloads section (they used to be anyway). If they're not, PM me your email and I can get them to you. I actually am working on putting together illustrated instructions for the ISSCV. The Leopard is pretty self explanatory. A lot like putting together a box with a few greeblies on it.

    Can't wait to see more, really. I'm just trying to lay low for awhile. Still, looks like something I'd like to build.:mrgreen:

    I've reworked the tracks, too. The blaster and the TF cockpits require my full attention at this moment, however, I hope to finish the base model soon. :wave:

    I'm looking forward to any updates, especially a version scaled up to 1:18, for action figure size!

    I have finally modelled the turret and started unfolding the pattern. Here are some preview shots of the parts sheets. Layout will be improved later. I'm unfolding the Ram at 1:18 scale (for action figures) and will rescale it to have another one in 1:24 (for vehicle collectors) and a third one in 1:32 scale (matching the Buck Rogers Thunderfighter and Colonial Viper kits), too. The Ram is about half the length of the Colonial Viper so you might guess how long the final versions will become.

    VERY VERY NICE!!!
    I am really looking forward to building this model. I will try my hand at the 1:32 scale (to match the rest of my collection.).
