    You need to read the thread before posting. It's things like this that originally made UHU02 remove links altogether. Congrats. :curse:

    Well, I've been all through Space Station 42-Science Fiction. And I don't see any sign of it.
    Somebody wanna be a LITTLE more specific?

    Just search the net for UHU02.

    I'm sure it will appear at the top of the list. You may have to navigate through the site to get to the beginning but it's there.

    Also it seems that UHU has created an Addendum sheet already. I cannot read whats on the site so I have no idea what it's all about.

    Yes, page 13 has been replaced by page 13X. A few tabs were misaligned on one engine part and he has corrected it. Please note that the last 3 pages are build instructions in jpg format. :mrgreen:

    Thanks for the heads up on 13X gents

    Bit of note here...I went to local Hardware store this morning and brought along a sample of page two, to use the members as guides for suitable Diameter Dowel, Got one that I was happy with as you see in Picture 1 but when I attempted to wrap it with the main spine members I got a significant gap as seen in Picture B.

    Both pages were printed with same scaling sizes and I have cut as much of the black line off the spine member...any hints or tips?

    Thanks in advance

    Are you sure the dowel is supposed to fit that snuggly without the wrap? The parts sheet specifies that the dowel should be 9 mm diameter. (Ran the text through Babelfish just to check).

    It looks like using the dowel with a wrap as NCY Irish was showing would fit just right.
    Maybe the wrap can be stretched a little bit to close the space.

    Hmm, I wasn't able to copy the text out of the pdf file. It says copying not allowed.:confused: Looking back through his design blog I saw he said 8mm spine. Has anyone tried that size yet?

    Why cant we have just one thread about this subject, not THREE? I mentioned in one of the other threads about the diameter of the dowel needing to be of about 8mm.

    Can The Mods PLEASE merge the threads, or move them or close two down? this is sensless.
