    Thanks trt & Zathros... :)

    trt, I don't do mass cutting... just cut the parts out for each panel and the relevant greebles.

    Build has been slow... but there has been some progress :mrgreen:

    The skins have gone on and the bottom panels are done - with greebling.
    It's been pretty tedious and time consuming. :oops:

    Well, on with the pics!

    Thanks dnalor :)

    Eh, I didn't do anything... I guess my printer handles color a little differently. It's a laser printer.

    Wow! Wanted to congratulate you, this is looking great!
    Note to self: need to add greebling to my list of half-developed papercraft techniques.

    The amount of detail that you are putting into this model is simply mind blowing.
    I am very impressed with your skills. This is turning into a truly AMAZING piece of work.

    Thanks dnalor and fokawe.

    It's not that hard to do the greebling, just a very laborious process of cutting, cutting and more cutting... after that, it's just pasting them on. Not that difficult, just very tedious. :oops:

    As for the round and ring greebles, I use a leather/wood punch to punch them out. I reckon you should be able to get them wherever you are - mine is a very basic and cheap set. As long as you keep them sharp (I only use them for paper modelling), they will serve their purpose well.

    I bought these when I was in Tokyo earlier this year... served me well! :)

    I hired illegal aliens to to out the holes and greeble. It know it isn't "legal' but I give them somewhere to park their spaceships and rest up, in exchange for the hole cutting and greebling. :)
