    Russell, I'm in the middle of building my first mecha and am having a ball with it (Daishi mech from papermech lab). It is very well designed and is going together smoothly. I have to build the left leg and both feet before I can begin the final animation and assembly. I'll be posting to the "Challenge" thread when it is done. I'm really interested in downloading the files from the link you've provided, but they are .pdo files which I can't open with photoshop. Do you know software I need to open the files? Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks, Don

    oooh boy I can't wait!
    PDO files are hosted by pepakura, you can download free pepakura viewer online, sorry I don't have the address.
    Thanx for the link Russell!

    I'm sort of a cave man when it comes to my computer. I've got an old Aptiva desktop with a Lexmark 52 color inkjet printer. I had a flatbed scanner, but it's down in the basement now 'cuz I couldn't figure out how to use it. I've discovered paper modelling since I banished it to the dungeon, so I'm thinking of dusting it off, and trying to hook it back up again, now that I have a good reason. And I don't use Xacto blades to cut cardstock either, I flake my own flint knives ;->

    Widget,
    A very generic description. These are giant walking robots with cannons for arms.
    I just checked my link again and everything seems OK on my end.
    I have even checked the downloads and they open correctly in Pepakura.
    I can only imagine that it has something to do with your browser settings or the browser itself.
    Maybe you should try again.
    I know I am not much of a help but I cannot really tell what is going wrong.

    I hope you got whish ones you wanted.. As now the links are disabled due to piracy! It's a shame. Fortunately I managed to keep up with it as they where being produce and released but now can't even share them without confirmation from the builder. And, I don't expect him to give permission anytime soon. Zecks was doing excelent work. I hate Internet Pirates.
