    Oh, I'm gonna pay for it up front. That way I can stress it all I like.

    the barrel looks great. I'm SO looking forward to this....

    i thought it would be tough, but it was quite straight forward. now the receiver will be a bit tricky im sure.

    Hmm. All those curvy bits. I'm sure you'll manage. This looks like your best yet, so far.

    this looks really good, I wish i had pay pal or a credit card. No bank would give me one as i do not work so just have to try my own version sometime. but at the moment working on a Citreon traction avant. good fun do keeps you thinking not only of what it looks like but also of how to make things easy as possible to put together. Don't want to many small parts really. Selfish really to myself. bad eyes and small parts end up not getting used when i build things. life boats and such like on ships don't get put on at all and them sea planes sure end up going in the paper rycling bin.

    really? they always just ask me for Credit card when i phone paypal. i may try that it will come in handy. oh nothing does a 1:24 sound a good size for a car? Just my little project of the Citroen traction is going to be able to be printed on A4 size paper. It be 20 cm long just wonder would i be better if i aim to make it 1:18 scale? sorry asking question not to do with the MP40 i suppose i should have just used a calculator to figure out the size to make the original picture.

    Perhaps you can get a prepaid credit card. There are some banks that can set one of these up for you. It's meant to indoctrinate younger users into using plastic for cash. You start up a credit card with $100 balance which you can replenish at any time, of course you have to put the $100 on the card first.

    doctor max- both those scales are pretty common for cars. you could always go for the 1/18 and it can be scalled down when printing for those that want smaller.


    i got some more progress. this one has a lotta parts. it took longer than i expected for the upper receiver due to the fact i kept building it backwards.wall1

    this next peice is complicated. with the parts cut out and laid out in front of me it looked a bit intimidating. but the built results are what i was aiming for, and putting them together was not as difficult as it looked. now im only worried about the stock.

    Drool drool. I'm with you on the stock. I'm still wracking my brains as to how I'm going to make it strong enough.
