    Hey Paragon, I'd like to test-build your Steamrunner. :)

    Not to backtrack, but I've been a big fan of hemostats for paper modeling for years... I have 6 pair, ranging in size from itty bitty 2" long, to 18" long puppies. Both straight and curved ones are definately handy to have. :thumb:

    I finished my build last night and took some pictures. I'm pretty pleased with it.

    Starhip Builder, when you say you're having trouble printing, do you mean the PDF is too large for the paper? I'm pretty sure thats a problem with the printer settings, but I can send you the 1/1900 scale version if you want.

    I see. I had that problem too, but I figured it was from something else. Cut it down the middle and glue the overlap. I'll make the change to the file.
  16. ok thanks also is the bottom meant to be flat or have a slight curve

    The Steamrunner has a flat bottom, IIRC.

    Paragon, I received mine and will start on it today. After I'm done I'll post any bugs I ran into that may need fixing or ways to make the assembly process easier.
  18. well ive assembeled the saucer and i have had no problems apart from the back wall

    About the only problem I've encountered so far is that the pieces for the forward upper saucer and rear upper saucer don't match by about 1/8".

    They overlap too much, don't meet, or the connection between them is a little off? Send me a picture. From what you've said though, I wouldn't worry about it, because that part will be covered by the top saucer.
