    My adjustable paperwieght. he Trash Pack garbage can is full of quarters. You can remove/add quarters to make is as heavy or light as required.
    An old school 35 mm film can works just as well.

    20140817 194.jpg Bottom in progress. I found these mini-clips at Hobby Lobby in the bead dept. They are a must have fo paper modeling.
    You may also have noticed 20140817 197.jpg my glue applicator. Hint: FIle the tip blunt so you don't inject glue anyplace you don't want it.

    Nice build, well done. I know this model but I never started it because the parts are so small.
    My respect for doing this model.

    GREAT JOB on the build!!!
    FANTASTIC BUILD THREAD!!!
    I fully understand that working at this scale can be (and usually is) quite challenging. I recently made his Defiant.
    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!

    I started this model, but it ell under my thumbnail, and I haven't been able to fish it out! Great job! You really fit the parts together well. Sometimes these small ships look a big "squashed", especially if I make one, but this one is perfect! :)

    This model caught my attention, because of how well you put it together. I started screwing around with it by adding panel lines to try and bring out some detail. i covered it with Red Lines as I have to speak to Thunderchild to see if he wold let me offer it up. i can build it this way, but courtesy demands I ask him first, in regards to posting it. The Texture is all there, I think the lines just bring it together a bit. Some may not like that, and I totally understand. Just doodlin'. I would like to get the lines 1/2 of a pixel size. I don't know if that is possible. :)

    Bump it to 600 dpi and then 1 pixel will be 50% if the original is 300dpi. All depends on your printer.

    Great work. I always love the extra small versions of familiar things like this. I think good name for it would be the Mininnium Falcon, though. :)
