    CSI: New Chicago! :mrgreen:

    Chris, you have done a beautiful job (again)! The robot looks gorgeous, even without the silver card, and that certain attitude serves him well :cool: .

    I'm glad you enjoyed the build. I've begun building Crichton 2.0 in silver and will post some pics soon in the original thread. I'll add some tips to the instructions and will replace some pics before the files are released. I too will contact Martin Saenger and ask him to host the files on his superb site www.paperavition.de so that non-zealot members may enjoy the kit, too.

    The intellectual hour...

    The picture with Crichton's head in your hand is somewhat Shakespearesque... :rolleyes:

    Excellent build! I wish I had a punch small enough to steal your raised rivets!

    Just get a small leather punch at Michael's Craft shop. They should not cost too much.

    Another thing that you can do is take a small dowel that is rounded off at the tip and dent the paper to look like rivets.
