    I'm just starting my adventure with papercrafting. A few years ago I was trying to build dropship from Aliens. As far as I remember I found it on this site: http://aliens.humlak.cz/. But due to lack of time I abandoned this project. Now I want to try once again with something different.

    Welcome aboard Sei, I gather that you are interested in the dropship! Follow my build thread http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=169444 and it may be of some interest for your build. The dropship if downloaded and built as is, will be a bit small and will have numerous tiny tabs to fiddle with. I took the download and when it came time to print it, I changed the printer properties to Landscape, fit to page. It upscaled the model to about 1/72 scale. I got so caught up in the build that I continued to build hadleys hope as well and it became a huge diorama with all of the buildings and the landing platform. There are some folding problems with the curvature on the front wing missile pods and it is hard to work with at the regular scale. Enjoy and if you attempt it or another model, be sure to post some of your works. If you need any help in the construction or run into any conflicts, post the offending part and someone will get around to helping ypu out with the fit problems. The name of the game is to enjoy and see you around the forum.
