    That is also a way of doing it:).

    It is also possible in Adobe Reader to print current view. That way you can print some parts that would fit on one sheet but "poster" setting split them (mandibles from your first photo for example).

    @xaero892 , that is a lovely model of the Falcon, easy for beginners and challenging for the guys who want to go big :) Greebling the Falcon.... sounds like a long term project! :)

    @bigpetr Not found out how to do that yet so I will have a look later when I get home. Thanks for the help.

    @Cybergrinder I think it may take a while but I'm looking forward to it.

    You change acrobat window size (add A) and zoom document (add B) as you need:

    Funny, I only saw this thread just now. Going by your first few posts I immediately thought of the huge 2001 Discovery build thread and the Aliens 2 APC build thread. You might try the monster 5 foot long Enterprise\Yorktown refit star trek, and the scratch built X wing fighter.

    Now that is a list of stunning models, the question is, does one have the space? ;)

    Ok, I've downloaded the new and updated templates for the Millennium Falcon from Sunichi's site and I have checked the upscaling at 285%. Im not sure how to work out what scale that is but the model will be around 2 and a half feet long I think. Preliminary work shall commence once I have finished the shuttle project.

    @Cybergrinder ....erm, no... I don't have the space.
    I have a very patient wife though.:animated:

    @bigpetr thank you for the explanation, It was very helpful. :bowdown:

    You are welcome. Your upscale scale shoud be around 1:35 if I did my math correctly.:)

    Thanks. How do you work it out? Just for future reference.
