    Wow, this model is Mega detailed! and at 1.7 meters (WTF 5 feet!?) I would have to buy Multiple ink cartridges just to be able to print this sucker. And I thought the thirty (thirty five counting instructions) page M41-A Pulse rifle was excessive (I actually had to buy a new ink cartridge after that) WoW. You Are a GOD when it comes to papercrafting. I can't (But along with your fanbase I will have to) wait to see the Finished product

    This is an incredible build up! I must say Jan, your 1:24 APC stands alone as one of my favorite builds. It has influenced and encouraged me in all of my detailing and model designs. I can only aspire to on day make models to the degree you do. I'm keen to see further progress on this monster ship.

    Awesome work mate!

    Hello Jan - or maybe Sensei Jan

    As a quite newcomer, I'v discovered this thead tday.

    I knew your sit for some months, and found your work fantastic :thumb::thumb:

    I was wondering when both the rest of Hadley's Hope and the Sulaco will come. I have the begining of the answer for the Sulaco.

    What can I said that others have not before me?:confused:

    Terrific, fantastic, awsome, breathtaking, that I have to register to the "Pampers User Club", etc... I cannot find my world, specially as English is not my birth language. Its GREAT, more than every body can say!!!:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    The door to the hall of fame MUST me still open for you :wave::wave::wave:

    Continue your GREAT work, Jan, I am sad of being helpless (or I don't know how I could help), but glad and proud to support you!!!!!!

    Just one proposal: in your site, "behind" the Sulaco image, just put a link to this thread. Everybody will know that, even if Sulaco will come in monthes, it represent an amazing and awsome amont and quality of work!!!

    And I am waiting to see what you can do (if you want, naturely) with the strange Giger-designed "Unknown Ship" and his fossilized giant alien pilot, and maybe with the Nostromo, the ship of the first Alien movie...

    Many greetings from Bordeaux, South-West of France:wave:

    Hello Bigtiime,

    Maybe that some takes of "Gearz Nostromo + Refinery builing" (http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=156812)can help for your "No Sulaco" shock!:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    As says the proverb "The longer (time, what are you thinking of mate?sign1), the better":mrgreen:

    Take care:wave:

    Stunning, absolutely stunning. I cannot imagine the full length of it once done; I'll have to set aside some room in my office for that lovely model!

    Wow! indeed.

    Dude... I just creamed myself looking at your flat. Nice, very nice.

    And god almighty! I had no idea the Sulaco was THAT damn big! Nice to see another crazy person making models that are WAY too damn big.

    Planning on lighting it? :mrgreen:

    Hello Jan,

    Hapy to see you back on this GREAT :eek: model! And beautiful living (guess it's paper, but wood :mrgreen:)! There had been some victims of "No Sulaco desease", but I think they will get better now!!:thumb:

    But first, enjoy Christmas with your family and beloved, plus New year parties! You deserve it...
