    Such language, I don't know what the frelling world is coming to.
    While we are filling up the swear box here's a picture of UHU02's shelves of awesomeness, should put a dent in your cubit pile RF.:)

    Wonderful picture. I wish there was one big enough to use as a desktop background. :)

    Gix, this is simply awesome. A beautiful sight, a marvel, stunning masterpieces by an incredible artist.

    So, no filling up the swear box this time! :mrgreen:


    I'll save the "fraks" for later - ... :eek: - Oops, I did it again! FRAK me! wall1

    (still 930 Cubits left for swearing; I hope this will be enough! sign1sign1sign1)

    I know anyone that has seen a build of mine would already know but just to make it clear these are UHU02 builds of his designs, sadly nothing to do with me although should they ever need a new home I could possibly find a home for them:yep:

    Not sure what that statement means but if they need a home, right here baby!! I got first Dibs!!.............Also, I would repeat that I think the picture in a larger format would make for an excellent Desktop Background picture, (Hint, Hint, ) :)

    UHU02 Is taking this project to a whole new level of detail and sophistication.
    The more that I see of this, the more I go from being in AWE to being BEWILDERED!!!

    God, the DETAIL in this render... Especially in the interior. NICE. You guys that can render 3D CAD shapes, just amaze me continually. It's something I'd love to learn how to do...but. Too many other irons in the fire at the present. Perhaps, someday soon....my life will slow down a tad, and then I can give CAD/CAM learning, a fair amount of my time... and see what I come up with.

    If you are ever going to consider learning CAD (C.A.M. is only necessary if you have the machinery), don't wait, because you can have a decade into it and still have much to learn. That being said, there are some model designers, who have such a good sense of dimension and detail, they make extremely detailed, even fantastic models, using paint shop. CAD is ideal because it can give you dimensions, and "unroll" certain parts.

    I learned CAD because I used/needed it for programming and designing fixtures for CNC machines. Using CAD for paper models was secondary. Using CAD for paper models is a lot more fun! :)

    This is exciting...

    First the sneak peak at the parts layout, then the pics of his build process, then the model gets released!

    Thank you for this, UHU!

    The more I see, the more it looks interesting.
    I am really looking forward to building this model.

    From uhu's website (courtesy Google Translate):

    "Pattern is now available finally completed ... the layout and numbering".
