    Well, I haven't been on much, so here's an update :thumb: All I have left is the neck and Bridge. Thanks to Kjev and Getter for the advice, it kept me from detailing the entire ship :mrgreen: However, I'll go back right after I finish the shape.

    And...for fun, I made some Test Instructions, what do you guys think?

    You can download it for free for 30 days and try it out. Should be plenty of time to get the thing unfolded. :thumb:

    I did that for my first model, the Starlancer Predator light fighter in the downloads section. :mrgreen:

    EDIT: Sorry, I misunderstood. You could also do a hard copy a few times and then snail-mail it to beta-testers. I wouldn't mind having a copy to display next to my detailed Arwing.

    there is no problem if you don't have the pass for pep. Its nice, but you can copy the development to clipboard and transfer it that way. I agree that it sucks to have to do that, but if its done right, it can produce equally good results.

    See, that's the problem, when I copy it to the clpboard, the templates that are, what, 30 pages + long? It comes out as 1 page on PAINT. Any help in that section? I'd like to know how to copy, if possible, 1 page at a time, or even a full size image >_> Sorry, If you don't understand, I'm trying to fumble for words ;)

    I understand you soaring. I have an idea, but it would require a little more work. If you can break up the model a bit and unfold individual sections as individual pep files then you should be able to cut down on pages. I would imagine that doing it all at once would kill your memory. And if you only export one section at a time, i think you can set the export rez higher so that you don't lose quality when you go to paint. All of this is definitely a lot more work, but if you can't get the pass, it definitely is one way to do it. hope this helps.

    Well everyone, it's the final stretch on the modeling bit. I know I'm late past a week infact, but I had to get ready for school :thumb:

    Anyways, I'm finished with everything except...

    -The Bridge
    -The Hangar interior
    -FInal details.

    This should only take me....a few hours, however, I have limited time on my kits now a days. I wanna graduate the 8th grade with honors ;)

    Alright, so it's set! I'll be done on Friday Night, of Saturday afternoon, Pacific time. Until then, see ya later guys!

    Oh, by the way...I think I'll be releasing the Great Fox Command variant tomorrow or later tonight ^^ Just a little treat :thumb: It was a quick project, I may or may not go back. HAve fun!

    Hey guys, I have a quick question. Are we allowed to upload our own works in the downloads section? Or do we pm a moderator first?

    Soaring,

    Cgutzmer is the moderator. You send it to him and he handles the uploading. It is . . . well, my vocabulary doesn't include words as big as 'beautimus,' so I'll just have to go with TOTALLY AWESOME!
