    I put a myself a question about the Carryall/thopther: If I build one should I make it with two wings or four? Like a dragonfly.

    The Carryall flaps his wings exactly like a thopter, but if it has two wings the aircraft will go up & down while flapping it's wings. Not very practical when trying to lift off a vehicle from the ground without making any damage.

    you need four to make it look good, now I need to ask are you going to make an assembly guide for the spice harvester?
    I'm putting it together but I have some ???'s about some of the parts I need some type of reference for the assembly...

    It is for that exact reason why I also prefer having the PDO of a model. Makes more sence when building, but I can understand the creators wanting to protect their work. Damn pirates :(

    Ah, I was afraid this could happen. Does some reference photos will help you? Tell me what you don't understand.

    I could put password on the .pdo, but the real reason I didn't put it is because not everyone has Pepakura and I didn't wanted a bigger .zip. If it's necessary I will make step by step instructions.

    You can lock the pdo without a password. It's under the Files - Export menu.

    Nice, although I hope to see a more detailed version of the real movie version in the future. I love the ripped and rounded Chriss Voss design!

    Hi, I have printed the different parts, but I can't see where to start. Can you give me some help and tell me the first parts to build ?

    Regards.

    Well it doesn't really matter with what parts you start. You can start by building the main hull then start building the front of the harvester by adding part by part to the hull and after that you can attach the tracks.

    Hello,

    I would like to download the model, but my virus protection software warns that the content of the file is dangerous.

    Sincerely

    Tom

    Hello, I use Kaspersky as anti-virus software and it doesn't detect anything. It could be just a false alarm...

    If it was infected I think somebody by now would have notify me about that.

    Finally! I finished the model! :mrgreen: Well...maybe some adjustments could be made and it's not the cleanest build I made.
    Those tracks took forever to make!

    Here are some images(download too): link
