    Thanks for the offer Alcides, but I no longer utilize beta builders.
    You 'will' be glad to know Guido is fully patterned already (33 parts - that's pretty low for me! See, I told you all: Simple:-D ) and Mack is 1/3 complete in 3D. After Mack's patterned I'll know the heights of all the cars and will scale Guido up to the appropriate size.

    Guido finished and so much progress on Mack already! It never ceases to amaze me the amount of talent that so many people on this site have. It would take me a year or more to get as far along as you have on Mack.
    They look excelent, keep up the good work!

    Since I'm working the next three days (that means about 4-5hrs sleep in between) I thought I should make some serious progress on this little project of mine.

    Here's Mack textured and brought into Pepakura. Now that that's done I can tell you the height of each of the 14 cars (If you want them smaller scale the PDF's down when they're released. I think these are "nice" sizes!)
    Chick Hick: 10.1cm
    Doc Hudson: 10.5cm
    Fillmore: 14cm
    Flo: 10cm
    Guido: 11.5cm
    Lightning McQueen: 9.8cm
    Luigi: 10cm
    Mack: 15.3cm
    Mater: 14.2cm
    Ramone: 9cm
    Sally: 9.5cm
    Sarge: 12.8cm
    Sheriff: 10.2cm
    The King: 13.2cm

    Have a great weekend everyone!!

    Scale them DOWN, what do you mean? I don't build things SMALL!! Of course, I haven't technically FINISHED my 2' tall AT-AT.

    The height of the cars should be pretty close to 1:24 or so, right? Now, the big question...are you going to do a detailed version of Mack's trailer so Lightning feels more at "home"?!

    BTW, you're killing me here. I'm racking my brains trying to figure out the best way to display all of the characters once they are done. These are going to be BEAUTIFUL!!

    Deb,
    You "ARE" worthy as are the rest of you all!:grin:
    Don't worry, these really are going to be much simpler builds than the Wacky Racers are.
    Promise! (A very rare thing indeed from me!)
