    OK so this is what I've come up with all that is left to do is paint the 'tentacles', unfold and clean up

    Nah... not late at all.:thumb:
    Looks good (even thou some of the parts are inside out, but I guess they'll workout by flipin them.sign1

    Not trying to be a nuicense.:oops:
    But you think I could get a (full size) copy in PDF or BPM, so I can work with (resize the parts) for my scratch?
    (if it's not too much to ask of course. You see, I don't realy know much about how to work/resize pdo files. :oops: )

    Oh!
    For those that are (or are thinking of) building Nav's "Destiny"...

    There is also another (very simple/not as detailed as Nav's) "Destiny" model (by mchale) over at papermodelers.com.
    Mchale's version has the 3 bottom fins that can be adopted to Nav's model to complete it.

    (Sorry Nav. Not knockin your model at all{looks great!!!}, but the Destiny has 3 fins on the bottom that you missed.
    A builder mixing mchale's fin parts with your model, will complete a Destiny model.)

    Anyways... Here's the link;

    (to the mods... If posting the link is inapropriate, please do what must be done.:thumb: )

    It's ok Vahmp I don't know what the destiny actually looks like I just saw a few internet episodes and used the model from 3d warehouse as the basis of my destiny I cleaned it up a lot and unfolded it.

    You're welcome Mchale!:thumb:
    I did a quick build to see if it would be fisable to work with on my build. :thumb::thumb::thumb:
    (sorry, I have no pics)
    It's a good simple (alfa) model, but... it does need to be worked on.
    It has alot of potential! And if I were you, I'de try to improove on it, beta model.:thumb:
    (but unfortunately, I've no experience in modeling/unfolding programs)

    Haha lol thanks Vahmp but I only cleaned up a model from 3d warehouse and I've played and googled bit on pepakura. If you don't have a mouse wheel press and hold shift and right click, hold and move the mouse up or down to zoom in or out.

    You're welcome, and you're being too modest!sign1

    As for the mouse question...
    I do have a good mouse, infered with top wheel and L./R. bottons.
    I'm just simply not good with modeling/unfolding programs.:oops:wall1sign1

    Lol ok Vahmp thanks but now the destiny shuttle note the pieces on the last page are a bit confusing but they are just to fill in gaps in larger pieces and pay attention to the engines or guns or whatever they are, the wing attachments particularly the little strut thing placement.

    I decided to do the destiny stuff first because there really isn't that much.
    Btw I didn't find out are the blue aliens friends or foes and what happened to the destiny?

    Hm... are you talking about the aliens in the 1st season? The tall skinny ones who had captured Rush and that annoing girl,
    Miss Armstrong?sign1

    If yes...
    They're Enimies, long gone (left behind in season 1) as far as the continuing story goes (as far as I know).

    Here's a link, http://www.tv-links.eu/tv-shows/Stargate-Universe_12184/

    I just opened the shuttle pdo zip...

    It looks good!:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Just one question...
    How do ya flip textures from the inside to the out?sign1
    Because the texture on some of them are on the inside. And if printed as is, when ya put it together the parts will not match/line up.

    Invert faces I think I had that problem with my transformers meshes that's when there are double faces or something just turn the parts inside out, it worked for the transformers. If you want links to those too just say I have almost all from G1 and some from war within but they need cleaning up and organizing in pepakura.

    Thanks Vahmp good to see someone is building them please post pics when your done, same goes for anyone else building them. I'm not going to test build these I'b trying to finish up my transformers and micro army and I haven't even touched my converted meshes yet.

    Turning certaint parts inside out just won't work. Because they are not exaticly alike.
    But I think I've found a way around that.
    By copying development to clipboard, then opening a new BMP/paint window, and pasting it in that, then saving it as a JPEG... I can open it in PhotoShop and flip the needed part horizontaly, so it will be facing the correct direction.
    I belive that will correct the part.:thumb:
    (The part I'm speaking of, is the part that goes just behind the front window/cabin section.
    Same goes for some of the parts for the Destiny model itself.:thumb:
    Althou, that one, like I said before, I'm just using it for skin decals.)

    I'm not into the transformer models, but what' are the G1 and war within models about?

    Don't thank me just yet... I haven't started building it yet. I study the parts first, before even printing them out. (saves on inksign1
    That's how I caught that the parts wouldn't fit right, if it was just flipped inside out after printing.
    But as soon as I finish fixing it in PS, I'll do an alfa build ok.:thumb:

    Cool thanks Vahmp.
    G1 an war within are just two different segments of transformers like in Stargate there is SG-1 Atlantis and Universe and I think Infinity or something like that.
    Thanks for pointing those out I'll try to fix them.
