    Rick,
    One of these days I'm going to have to build one of these. I printed the 2004 a while ago on glossy paper and it looks almost too cool to cut up!

    Roger,

    I agree, they are works of art, but they do beg to be built

    I printed the 2005 version and reprinted the 2004 version on 38# glossy photo paper from Epson on an HP printer, the body panels just look like freshly painted sheet metal

    Rick,

    I printed the 2005 on the HP color laser at work, but the glossy inkjet print is definitely the way to go. For the 2004 version I used the same type paper as you on my Canon printer.

    As you no doubt noticed, all that excellent artwork is done in vector graphics. That's something for me to try to aspire to in my designs.

    yeah, I am impressed with the detail and brightness of the print even on plain paper

    I have been always impressed with your USCG repaint of the HEMS Dolphin, on par with Dr. Zarkov.

    I need to clear off my build list and start back up with those NSX cars, they are too good not to build

    I was saying to myself

    "Self"
    how about adapting the easy versions of the NSX race cars for bodies for an RC platform?
    just a thought, maybe one of our RC savvy members could fill me in

    My reason for suggesting this, is the various bit-char-grs or zip-zaps you can buy at toy stores.
    there was a small burst of making paper bodies and sites featuring models, and how tos.

    Let me know, I am just curious, not neccessarily going that route

    I need some help!

    I started working on the Nakajima Transporter Tractor and put the front half of the cab together without too many problems. Is there a good way to attach the back of the cab? I tried starting by gluing at the roof, but there isn't enough to hold onto while I try and get the entire back aligned.

    Also with the roof spoiler, does parts 12L and R get glued under parts 11L and R?

    Finally do parts 15L and R get folder and glued to form a step?

    All help will be appreciated.
