    Howdy "having a laugh",

    Of course its worthy! We wouldnt care if you were making paper stick people, we wanna see it! lol
    Never think that what you do isn't worthy of posting, there may be something you do that helps or inspires another person. As I am sure you are aware, everyone has their own building techniques, and others can and do often learn from other peoples build threads.
    So keep em coming, Enquiring minds wanna see.

    Have a good day,

    Greg aka GW

    I notice you're getting some artifacts from the scanning process - the rough appearance is caused by the scanning process. Do you run your scans through
    a filter before printing?

    There are Photoshop filters as well as standalone programs to do this - often you can restore a scan to a good approximation of the original.

    Regards,

    That sounds like a good thing to have, especially with purchased kits.
    Are any Free??
    I don't have PhotoShop, My OS came with ArcSoft Photo Suite.
    Do I need a stand-alone or is there one compatable??

    You can get Gimp for free, at gimp.org, that should have filters, along with a lot of Photoshop type editing tools.

    Noiseworks community edition is free from http://www.noiseware.com/ - this
    can give very impressive results.
