    Great job Wayne!

    Hope you get the camera soon, love to see how you modified the Cassini. I've been working on a "tour of the solar system" series to offer to local schools. I ended up doing a few mods to the Galileo and rather more to the Cassini to bulk it out and add 3-D.

    Nice Mercury. Try printing it on the Red River Metallic paper which has a coating designed to allow ink jet printer ink to adhere.

    Tim was kind enough to offer to sell some to others on a sheet-by-sheet basis in this thread. This was in June of last year however, so I don't know if the offer still stands, but I guess it's worth asking...right?:mrgreen:

    Metallic Ink jet Papers

    Very interesting papers, Wayne,

    I was able to get a very positive reply recently from Red River in the US of A. You can order directly from them, via credit card:
    http://www.redrivercatalog.com/browse/silver-metallic-inkjet-paper.html

    I will order 13" by 19" silver metallic papers for my Epson A3+ printer very soon now.
    Good luck with your research.

    Best regards from Stockholm,
