    This is actually the project that led me into card modeling in the first place. Originally I was going to do the model in plastic :? or turn it from wood. Then I started thinking about how to build a prototype to see how the proportions worked out etc. Thought I had stumbled on something really original when I resorted to paper :roll: Anyway this is related to the "Is this overkill" thread. Some expressed interest in just what the blue blazes I'm up too. In consideration of Ron's bandwidth all images are off site

    The following are just something I have been playing around with during llunch breaks at works for a couple of years. At 1/250th scale it would be around 200 cm long
