    Yet another one of my rescales. This one is the SF Papercraft USS Reliant.
    The build was straightforward with no problems (at least none that werent my fault sign1 )

    that hole in the monitor looks like a docking port or something but if thats the spot for a webcam or mic then that is small

    Looks good. 142 x 82 mm, that's small! Very nice build!

    The only change I'd make is to give the roll-bar a slight curve and curl the planetary sensors on top of the primary hull. Other than that it looks great! :thumb:

    Very nice work sidewinder! Any chance you can submit this to Zealot so we can all have the opportunity to build it at this scale? :mrgreen:

    Well all im doing is scaling the print, not the actual pattern itself. So for instance the original size is around 1:1000 for this model so for 1:1700 scale the print to 58.82% of original size. I use Brava! Reader for pdf's, It makes this very easy. It also allows you to print selected sections of a page at a time so you can enlarge to sizes that normally would overrun the edges of your paper.
