    Janx,
    Just wanted to let you know you did a great job on the design. Here are some pix of my completed model. I printed it out at 1/4 the original size to save cardstock, and make it a bit more challenging. It certainly was, especially the rear section with all those rearward defense pods and etc...
    I sprayed the completed model with some clear gloss finish to protect it, and make it look nicer for display. Thats for all you hard work.

    Sincerely,
    Paladin

    I took your advice Wbnemo, and gave it a couple more coats of gloss coating. Looking very shiny now, and a slight bit heavier.

    I am humbled by how well you made it paladin.Thanks for the kind words.

    I would take will up on his offer, what he doesn't know about this isn't worth knowing.

    I am still on the case Will if you thought I was slacking :) just not enough time..

    Sir, I was just wondering, you also have information regarding the internal weapons bay of the Firefox yes?

    My only reference pic of this was the short clip when the Firefo fired a missile and a site in the past(that I can't find anymore) showing a snapshot of the internal weapons bay of the Firefo.

    Is it possible if you can post detailed info pics of the said weapons bay? :mrgreen:

    It would be cool! :thumb:

    Shin_kazama@
    Yup, it's in the Download section already

    ...Is that done by a 3d printer or a lathe? Either way it looks impressive!

    HELP! Can not download

    Hi All;
    My computer can't handle the format in the downloads section. Is
    there any way the model can be converted to a pdf file?
    Best Wishes

    Yeah, but it wouldn't be nearly as good quality when you print it out.

    Download a program called Pepakura Viewer to view it and print it.

    I think modifying in order to make it print is fine, as long as the modified file isn't being shared in any way... just a thought, no offence intended.

    (P: Oh well, Location: Oxon? Shakes hands...)
