    TC: Those models are AMAZING!!! I know that I am repeating myself, you truly have given a whole new meaning to the term "MICRO-MACHINES"!!!

    I have one of those foam hands, they're getting quite popular, along with those huge coins! :)

    Also you forgot to mention the over-sized fake steel ruler.
    And of course one trick to taking the photos is a background that gives away nothing. :D

    TC: I would like to see you make the Thunder Fighters in the same scale as the rest of these.

    I have been toying with the idea RB. The only thing I can't figure how to do correctly are those pointy booms at the front.
    At this size... Nightmare! sign1

    Here is a website that deals with calculating cones: http://i-logic.com/conecalc.htm

    I hope that it will help with the nose cones (booms), if you decide to tackle this project.

    Good luck with it. I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    Thanks RB.
    Since I design everything in 3D the cone design itself is not the problem. Folding/rolling and gluing a cone that has a diameter of one millimeter at it's widest base is where the problem lies... :p

    great work!!!
    It seems to be a real pain to build those 1 inch SW ships.
    Technical questions: what kind of paper? standart 80 gr/m2 or heavier?
    what kind of glue? Tweezers?
    I'll like to build some "microscale" Homeworld starships, but I'm little scarred...

    I always wanted to the H.W. ships in scale with each other so I would emagine the fighters would have to be micro or the mothership would be crazy huge. Like Texas aint got nothing on us, MASIVE!!!
