    I had a scan for 3d prining, tinted it blue green, and cut it into pieces. The paper pieces folded and crushed into shape enough to not need any snipping or linear strip parts to achieve a curve section.

    LOL @ RB! Thanks Zathros! I changed the model so the little fangs around the nose emitter is more accurate - so they look more like sunflower seeds and just glued into place, and the nostrils too. I probably should learn how to pencil the edges of the paper to match the print, I do have the colored pencils, but I am going thru my printed P.M.'s like Yoda looking thru Luke's supplies, and just going for whats shiney to me. It's going to get real hot here in a couple of months and I will be staying inside, plus I have 4-5 things I need to get done in my personal life, one of them is like bailing out a leaky rowboat every time I try. I really want to get these little guys done and move on to Ron Caudillo's Enterprise TOS 1701, I have some thing new for the nacelle globes, and for the inner supports, plus two blue lasers with memo sound units for the phasers, so I am going to have to make a dry run at that first and a 38 inch/ 4 footish long spindrift with interior made of paper, so that's my inside this summer tasks. that Klingon landing gear looks pretty crummy so I might rework that into something more visually appealing. [ but ya gotta start somewhere]

    Thanks worked on the invaders props today. That dern big shooter is too big for a page, so I am breaking it up into pieces. Might work out a trigger that moves the nozzle like in the series.

    I think at this point my The Invaders packet is finished. I will have to look thru it again and decide if i need to fix anything, also I have to build it for a picture tutorial. The Minbari Cruiser should should be up very soon.

    I like the Vorlon Transport, did you design it? I am just curious, it's a model wanted by many. ;)

    I modified the Diego Cortes Vorlon fighter pm, I have emailed him , but have not heard back. In 2010 I talked to him about Gary Pilsworth and Diego Cortes gave me permission to make the Vorlon transport, I made a crummy one but went back and fixed it for this one. If I can find the right texture I will probably go ahead and draw a whole new one at half scale of the current one. another thing on my plate. First going to try to get The Invaders prop package out after Easter. I have 12 pages printed of models I have been ignoring for years that I just have to sit down and build, [like we all do.] Then it's Ron's really big Enterprise and recolor. I am working on the support structure for this large project.

    I just about empty an Inhaler for Asthma this week, the Pollen is so high. Take care of those lungs, they are the only ones you have. I may start wearing those stupid white paper dust masks more often. :)
