    so what colour scheme have you done the plane in. I just think it would look really smashing it that grey look of some of them models i have seen a BF109 in. with the spots.

    Which one? The Arado? There is a .pdo file , you can export the uncolored version and then re-paint him. I don't have a problem if anyone repaints one of my model as long as he recognize my credits for the design.

    I really need to learn to use some sort of 3D modelling program. The ability to just make a circle and then wrap everything around it would be so nice for designing models.

    That would make paragon's files to be in .pdo format(which I cannot print using it).I don't know what is the problem.Well,If someone develop a program that can make those unfolded designs into pdf,jpg or other format like that,he solves my problem.

    I wish I could print .pdo files.

    thanks,
    Daus

    it'easy just instal a virtual printer that will "print "( save to a location you want) and convert the pdo in a pdf file you can print.

    like :http://www.pdf995.com/index.html instal then in pdo choose print and select not your standaard printer but pdf995 .
    its freeware with a sponsored link if you buy it its gone , but there more virtual printer programs out there free and shareware i also like and use foxit pdf viewer its faster than adobe an d lighter

    hope this helps pmodel :wave:

    Oh,yes it works!It is easier to install than the PDFcreator,which stops while installing.

    No, if I could do that, I'd probably just use it to model problem spots, print the parts to a PDF and then finish up the files in Photoshop.

    Daus, I don't use Metaseq , so I don't know.

    BARX from papermodelers.com did a great job building the model , so I've uploaded in the download area.

    That looks great the Coanda has always intrigued me, ever since I saw it in a 1956 RAF year book :)
