    Hey, I was digging around in my closet and came across an old box full of paper model projects I never finished. One of them is a TIE Fighter I downloaded somewhere but I can't remember where. Worse yet, it's Russian so I can't read the text. Any help is appreciated. It looks like it would build up into a nice TIE Fighter model with a little TLC. It has a full cockpit included.

    That is the correct one. It is actually a nice model, and if I recall, there was a AT-AT walker done by the same designers. I was working on a resized one some time ago, but had to abandon it for real life pursuits

    Yeah, thanks guys, I really appreciate it! :D I'll have to build this up sometime, after I'm done with a couple of other projects.

    Huh, I tried the download for the TIE Fighter and the AT-AT, but both of them come up as corrupted when I open them with WinRAR. :confused:

    Thats exactly what happened to me when I did it. Is there some addon you need with Winzip to read these?

    Hi guys, I've downloaded this model back in the days when the page was still available. I uploaded the model here. I think I have the AT-AT in my archive too, so if you want it, I can upload that one too, just let me know. Here are some photos of it (I resized it to 1:66, so it's a bit smaller than it should be)

    edit: it's solved in this thread too: http://forum.zealot.com/t139548-2/#post830982

    I use winace and ...yes it says they are corrupted, but then it can still unzip the pdf and it opens fine. If I recall, I may have used the wayback machine to download them as well.

    Col. Kutz, well done!:thumb:

    I forgot about the wayback machine for this, even though I've used it before.

    I downloaded all these kits, no problems.

    I used Firefox to download, WinRar to extract and Foxit reader to view the pdfs. (Foxit reader has less problems with foreign fonts.)

    If anyone still has a download problem, pm me and I'll email to you.

    LOgicman ... I had no problem downloading ht ekits, but big problems trying to open the AT AT. It refused to open! Have you actually opened the archives successfully?

    Yes!:thumb:

    It's an old problem - if the download stream hiccups, you get corruption. Firefox does a great job of reducing this problem. Just right click and 'save as' rather than left click.

    Also, if win$ or acrobatty doesn't have the iso files for the specific language, the file can refuse to open, or can appear corrupt - that's why I use Foxit reader.

    English Instructions

    Hi All,
    I have downloaded the file and printed it out on plain bond paper just to check it out so far.

    I have a friend at work who speaks Russian (not realizing that the instructions are actually Ukrainian) and asked if he could interpret them for me. After a quick chuckle at my ignorance, he said he has some Ukranian friends that could do the interpretation.

    This will take a little time but I can offer a translation when I get it.

    Best Regards,
  20. Millenniumfalsehood

    I got DaFox and it didn't open for me, but I never thought to try "Save Target As." I usually just open it and save it within the program.
