    Uhu02 has posted new information on his blog, including a quick "diversion" from his efforts on Space Station V.

    Thank you, uhu02!

    Is Uhu's website down? I can go to it but when I put in the magic password, etc., nothing happens. After a few tries, get that *need authorization* message. A change of password? Was going to download the carousel from the Discovery to give it a whirl, as my copy disappeared into the ether. Help!

    I am having the same problems. Unless, that is, I still haven't figured out the name and password. Great puzzle and it's kept me occupied (more or less) all day. Would someone let me know if the site is down?

    The site is not down, the passwords are obvious. Please, don't ask, especially if you have only 1 post here!

    Han Solo Blaster

    I am having issues with accessing the Uhu library as well but I am sure I will figure it out.

    Here are some pictures of Uhu's Han Solo Blaster gun I finished earlier this spring. I had some real trouble with the "cooling" bracket at the front - no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get those small rectangles to line up equally and keep their spacing. You can also tell that the barrel is not quite straight - that is only because I have had it sitting unsupported for some time now and gravity has done its thing. The trigger works but is a little stiff...maybe my rubber band was too tight. I love this gun - will put it in a shadow box on my wall with a label that reads:

    Han shot first!

    He, he. My next project is Uhu's TimeMachine Version 2 - that is once I figure out what the new password and login are. Uhu, thank you so much!

    Hoch lebe die Eule der Minerva!

    EVERYONE, do what you did before but start from the end of the thread and work your way to the front. Obvious is key. Please, no more questions. For all the people who ask, you would think there would be a lot of build threads? Excluding Fringewatcher who has shown his model. Great job by the way! :)

    Still in the hunt

    I have been trying to access Uhu02 models. I have been reading the clues but I had no results. Hope to get it soon. His work has inspired me to build some of his models as soon as I can get one.

    Oops.... Forgot to add, the Carousel showed up in a file that had nothing to do with caerd models at all. Now to find my card stock, my knives, and go get some glue.

    Be amazed and be grateful

    This is a "I just figured it out" message. :)

    Listen folks, Uhu is THE master of the craft and we should be eternally grateful that he chooses to share his incredible models with us at all! And that for FREE! The fact that Uhu has not shut down his site altogether despite the numerous instances of people stealing his stuff and trying to make money of his intellectual and creative property is a testament to how much Uhu believes in the spirit of the paper modeling community. The Uhu appreciation thread has all the information that you need to access his files.

    Different subject. After seeing Uhu's model of the Valley Forge I rented the movie "Silent Running" from which the ship is taken. As a longtime sci-fi fan I should be embarrassed to have not seen the movie earlier. Great movie (although the younger generation will find the effects wanting) great story. Highly recommend it.

    Silent Running is one of my all time favorites. I saw it when it came out, and it was one of those movies that I know helped form my opinions. It is still valid in it's premise, maybe even more so now!:thumb:

    I am happy you figured it out.:thumb:

    Still looking

    All,
    I am still trying to work out a way to access Uhu02 library. I have read the posts that he wrote. I found the link but I haven't figured out the login and password.

    Hope I get it soon:confused:

    I am sorry Uhu-san has announced the closed library, but understand his frustration at people who have abused his generosity.
    I look up to his creations as fantastic works of art, both in the unfinished and finished form and realize that there are only a couple of them that are realistically within my ability to build.
    That makes me appreciate his buildings skills even more.
    Thanks for everything and thanks in advance for any models that you do share with us in the future.

    Yeah, everyone should chill. This has happened before and will happen again. A treasure hunt goes better with a calm, attentive mind. Kick back with a good short story. I recommend Poe's "The Purloined Letter."
