    Considering Mr Rukr's normal attention to detail, I'm suprised the tiny dropship doesn't have a teeny tiny APC in it.....

    OK, that may have been one of the most challenging small projects I've attempted to date. Don't get me wrong: I loved it! It was a fun hour or so.

    At 89% printer output size the completed 16 part mini-Cheyenne came in at 6 Cm total length. Here are a few shots of my build.

    Keep working on that Sulaco, Jan. I'm very eager to build it.

    Since this model is so small are you guys using regular paper or card stock?

    I used the normal 110 lb card stock I usually use, but I would recommend something a little thinner now that I've done it. That glossy paper Jan used sure looks good, doesn't it!?

    Hi Guys, PLEASE can someone pass the file on to me? I don't know what It is between AOL and Rapidshare but they just don't work together. I've tried to download the model several times using the free option but just get the download expired notice.

    HELP!! Frustrated builder

    Oooo. Sarcasm. That requires a response (sorry I didn't see this sooner or you might've gotten a reply). In general, we aren't supposed to be exchanging models without the designer's permission, even if its a freebie. I can't host it anyway. My suggestion: fire a very nicely worded request to Mr. Rukr directly (edit out any sarcasm) explaining the problem and asking if he'd be willing to send a copy directly to you. Also: be patient.

    I'm not much of a fan of Rapidshare, but at least I got mine to work. I don't know what it is with AoL. You might want to complain to them, threaten to leave and go to a competitor if they don't shape up, etc.

    It's usually bad form to distribute another designer's work without his permission. We are not ignoring you, we are respecting Jan's contribution to card modeling.

    Don't blame us for AOL's policies either.

    im pretty sure that you could use mozilla firefox or internet explorer if you start aol then minimize it. i have heard alot of people say aol doesn't work with rapid. and really man you barily wated 2 hours befor a sarcastic remaric thats just bad form.

    I wish to offer my unconditional Apollogy, and I ask the members of the group to forgive for my lack of patience. I am truly sorry for my sacastic remark.

    Sincerely

    Steve O, Please could I stress that I am not blaming anyone for AOL's Polocies, I was just pointing out that I could not download the file.

    Sincerely

    Tom
