First of all - many thanks to D-Whale for this awesome model . So... I've taken the patterns and shrunk them so that the smallest pieces are just workable and no more - ~ 1/2mm thick. At this size I've fit four pages across an A4 sheet, which allows me to print all 12 (out of 13) pages plus another two less complicated models on one A4 sheet - to keep in synch with my other micros I didn't print the stand, brilliant as it is! After three days this is what I've built so far:- This is when I realised that 200gsm card would be too thick for some parts as the tabs were bulking the parts far too much. I reprinted the entire set on a page of copy paper and I'm using card for larger structural parts and braces. Although I can usually put together a model every day, this one will probably take around a week - mainly due to time spent cutting tabs and sometimes finding that the tabs then have to be removed because they're causing too much bulk. This is not a complaint! It's worth every single second!!! At this size tabs are often unnecessary anyway. You may ask "Why are you using such thick card?!?" It's what I'm used to working with when using Drex Files and I find that thinner card or paper is not durable enough to withstand too much pressure from tweezers when it has glue applied. Anyway, on with the show:- I realise that the ring looks like a dog's dinner just now, but that is why there are stabilisers underneath it. It will look grand once it's attached and the white edges are touched up ;-). Another reason for this model taking (much) longer for me is the absolutely stunning level of detail in the plans. The first piece built (measuring 16mm across in my version) has 12 parts!
