    They were bent? I originally had them bent, but as I researched more pictures of it, they appear straight.

    It's nice that you like it ;) Good luck building it together :D

    This version of the Great Fox does have 3 engines but they're not all the same size. The one in the middle is farther out than the other two. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miZ08Oisp5U Look at the back shot of the Great Fox on that video.

    Wish I was told that earlier. I'll do another version later on, but I won't change anything yet. I've already unfolded way too much ( Almost done) and the problems are nothing but those engine sizes. In the future, I'll probably just release an Engines upgrade without the rest of the Great Fox.

    No, it's not for download yet.

    Gotta tell ya, Soaring, nobody knows Starfox like Luigi. Anytime I think I'm all-knowingl, I just go visit him. It's educational I tell you.

    Sad video there. Reminds me of the death of the Enterprise:

    "My God, Bones. What have I done?"

    "What you had to do, what you always do: turn death into a fighting chance to live."

    Well, progress has definitely went downhill. I'm working on some Zaepher things at the moment, but I will postpone those projects to finish this, next week. If anyone would like to take a crack at this raw build, please PM me. YOu don't have to, just a thought ;)

    My printer's down, but I'm sure Luigi would (and I'd help him)

    it's an "I've got to ask Luigi, since it's his printer, and he's in bed a the moment."

    BUT, I'm sure he'll say yes, and I DO have 3 days off coming up . . .

    :p Well, here's what may get in your way...
    - I did say it was RAW. It has alot to unfold still :p Only the Back end till the Slopes have been unfolded. The Hangar bay still needs adjustments, since there's nothing to keep it held, yet.

    Aside from that, I'm sure you'll have fun ;)

    Excited!

    I can't wait for this model to be done. I'm so excited. When will you finish unfolding this model? :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    Wow, my Great Fox has gathered some dust, so I'll go back to beta building it in a few hours. Just so you guys know this project isn't dead :rolleyes:

    Sorry Soaring.

    Been really busy trying to browbeat contractors into finishing my house. Things to note:
    • "We can't do that" generally means "It's easier for US if we do it another way.
    • "Contractor" means "You supply your own tools. It's not my job to make sure you have a generator if there is no power, make sure you have access to cordless drills, saws, etc., or wipe your nose or any other part of your anatomy that may be leaking.
    • Take the date they give you, add 3 months, and you ought to be about right.
    • NAG! They tend to forget you exist otherwise.
    • Blackmail works: You mean you want to get to your kid's game and my truck is blocking the driveway? Well, the sooner you finish doing the work you said you'd do last week, the sooner that truck will make up its' mind to move.
    • Don't be afraid to tell them to re-do something. To you, it's your house, your castle, your fortress of soltitude, and it will be done the way YOU want. To them it's just another job and the quicker it's done, the sooner they get paid.
    • Yes, I WANT that odd nook in the closet. It's where my gun safe will go. NO you cannot put the furnace/water heater/electrical panel/junction box/or anything else there, even if it would be easier for you. READ THE FRACKING PLANS!

    And so forth. And no ink or paper kind of puts a dent in it as well.
