    I gotta try them.

    Curious. If you are going to build more and try to keep them in scale with each other. How big would the Mothership be? :D

    Good Build. Free Model.

    You should post it in the Free Model Competition............... you've got nothing to loose and a chance at some really nice stuff to win!:grin:

    Just a thought.

    Thanks nothing, I'm desperately in need of some new equipment, I've got an old HP 640c that only works on Wednesdays (when its not raining) I'll go scope the Epson out.. What sort of paper/card did you use ~ Inkjet /photo?
