    Heat index for the next couple of days are going to be above 100 degrees with 80+ humidity. I just printed her out and plan to start on builder her in AC comfort. I've taking a couple of months off after my TOS Galactica build, and even had time (before my garden started to produce) to build the New Republic Star Destroyer (plastic, sorry), so I'm ready to start cutting paper.

    I am a little confused about the "alternate" parts. Are these to be used with exisisting parts or replace? Thank you.:thumb:

    My son is really buggin' (no pun intended ) me to build this. I told him he is going to have to wait till he can pitch in. He's 11, and can, he just won't accept that reality yet!

    Looking at the 3" stack of cardstock parts.........I'm guessing this may take awhile (and a place to put it).:mrgreen:

    You know, I've got anough on my plate.... But... Every time I look at this, I think about changing priorities. I love big ships. Though the movie may not be my favorite, Heinlein is one of my favorite authors and this is definatelty one of the "best" book.

    True. I'd read the book and was excited to take my wife to see the movie.

    It was definitely one where the props were excellent (I loved the ships, the guns, the armor, and so forth), but the dialogue, story line, plot, characters, actors, and that aspect of it sucked. And the next two were even worse, if you can believe it.

    Can't believe I blew twenty bucks that night. And that was in college, when twenty dollars was a LOT of money.

    I always liked how Denise Richards could be impaled by a but like that (in the end of the first flick) and happily walk along with her buddies, with an 8 inch hole in her shoulder. I guess she was made of the right stuff. She sure is pretty to look at, then she blows it when she speaks. I actually found a pic of that scene. It strained credulity so much, I guess I wasn't the only one to notice.

    My 5-year old is like that. So far, he has a list:
    • A helmet (a pig-faced bascinet, no less)
    • Finish the Shadowcat battlemech I'm making for him
    • Build a Daishi battlemech for him
    • One other thing I can't recall offhand.

    By the way, both of the Battlemechs aren't just paper models. He wants them scaled to fit his Star Wars action figures. I've got enough modeling to keep me busy for a year.

    Yeah, scaling models to fit Halo figurines from Lego, or is it Megablocks, is the new request!

    That'd be a relief. They're ROUGHLY (and I heavily emphasize that word) about 1:48, but I'm sure that's off. Lot's smaller than his 3 1/2 inch clone trooper.

    Sooo... anyone volunteer to upscale the ol' Rodg for megablocks?:eek:

    I think you need to make 10 posts (praise others work) before you can download. Hope this helps.
