    So started this in the middle of a storm printed everything out for my first section built it in two days.

    Ah but no power for two days so I had the next four sections printed at staples. Built the name plate and instantly knew this isn't going to work, but I carry on building because the problem was with the first section so alas I now show you progress.

    This is the aliens 3 version darker and it has the escape pod opening
    As you can see there is a huge difference between home inkjet and staples laser printing.

    I sure would love to build this but I don't have the room for what I have. I already have a 1/48 Sat V and a 1/4 Merc capsule and on our neighbors site Ken is designing a 1/12 scale Sat V command module that I will build when he releases it. Where am I going to put it?.....I'll just have to cross that bridge when I get to it.

    Excellent start, building one of these would result in me being single , so I too must enjoy at a distance. :)
