    Here is the Silent Running drone "Duey" at 200% along with all three drones at 50% along with a Coke can for scale. This drone was designed by Shunichi "Shun Pop" Makino. (no longer available)

    The cardmodel-brickboy which I have just printed on my Plotter here in the office(boss ain't around) was blown up to fit an E+ size sheet, 36x48 inches
    426.48% of the original.

    So this guy will be BIG.

    Sounds good rickstef! ...I'm trying to get my hako wood-e upscaled to 1/2 scale...that would make him 3'-2" tall. Might even do him full scale...

    That is an awesome model!
    I didn't spot any sat dishes Stev0, saw some radar antennas though!
    And the planes are accurate.

    If the project doesn't have to be recent, then here's my entry! Shun Pop's AT-AT redrawn and enlarged to just over 2' high and almost 3' long. Still have to get the weathering completed and finish the scale Snowspeeder.

    I'm putting this one up on the humongus list but its not really that big:

    the rest of the build and images:

    I think it qualifies as it's a 200% enlargement of the intended size.


    It is a ship from the role-playing game Pirates of the Revolution. They have these neat card models as part of the game, I think with a little work they make great 1-2 day paper models. I scan the card, and then blow it up, adding a
    custom bow, stern, rigging, whatever bling.
