    I'm starting to think not only his models are sci-fi, but also Jan himself is an entity from outer space... no living creature on earth can design papercraft models like he does :eek:

    Like many my first build was also from his site (M41-A Pulse Rifle)
    Although my model looked more like a slingshot then a sci-fi pulse rifle, i've
    learned alot from it.

    I got Alien Quadrilogy but still didn't watch it.
    I really need to take some time to spoil myself with an Alien movie-marathon.

    God-speed with the USS Sulaco and all of your future work Jan :thumb:

    Thank you jan!!!!!!!

    Mr. Rukr, while I have built a few commercial paper models over the years, your dropship was my first foray into full time paper modelling! Thank you for your dedication to our hobby! There are those of us who don't have the CAD skills you have, but wish we could. Your designing these particular subjects and releasing them for us, brings us just a little closer to that lost imagination of our youth. Thank you very much!

    Work continues with lots of new challenges...:confused:
    at first: I´ve duplicated the cannons to the opposite side of the ship.:thumb:

    [​IMG]

    continuing with the "reactor" section and top structures :twisted:

    [​IMG]

    the top of the ship is real challenge...I don´t know how is it look. The top of the holders of the ION cannon consoles specially..wall1..hmmm....I´ll try something :cool:

    now ..for the renders...there is the whole situation more visible.

    Beautiful work here Jan!! I was always excited by the idea of a Sulaco designed by you, this is better than I imagined it would be. It puts my Sulaco to shame.

    Looking forward to seeing more, especially the texture!! Your texture work is always second to none!!

    absolutely stunning Jan, just like all your work so far.
    my first paper build was in fact the colonial marines rifle as i love aliens :p



    p.s. those port and starboard weapons are; 80mw electron-free lasers capable of vaporising missiles and figthers up to 20km away.
