    Hey fellas!
    Kooklik is on the otherside of the date line to most of you, & time zones as well.
    Couple that with a real job & paypal not always being instant.

    Yeah I know you said it in jest,:thumb:

    but please don't be offended if Kooklik doesn't always get things going as quick as you think things should move, or the snail carrying the disk to the sea turtle for delivery to the US is slow this week.
    Postal systems are not all the same.

    I really was just kidding. It was a joking referal to the fact that many cardmodels can be downloaded right away. I followed the thread from the begining and have been patiently waiting to be able to own that work of art UBOAT! I apologize if I offended anyone, I was truly jesting, hence the :)
    P.s.
    Kooklik did you send it yet?

    Kooklik thanks! I would love to see you design a 1/72 aircraft carrier with planes! With your talent, that would be something!

    A 1000 +/- foot carrier would be about 14 feet long in 1/72 scale. My den is only 10X10.

    It Arrived!

    My disc arrived yesterday. The files are truly works of art.
    Would still like to scale up to 1:35 or 1:32. This might b problematic because I do not want the hull plating split across tiled sheets and I want to print on my own equipment so I have total control of output.
    We'll see.

    Next couple of weeks I hope to make the prints on the formers at least.
    Then spend a good amount of time going over the directions that came with the model, thisthread, and the build thread over at the paper modelers forum.

    If you have an A3 printer possible but an A2 or bigger printer will be better.
    Then again if you want the 1/32 boat go fibreglass, stronger waterproof & it has raised rivetts etc for detail!

    I have no experience in scaling up. But I think that card board thickness should be thicker to match with the frame slit size.
