    Sorry guys for long break.
    .....thanks for reactions anyway.....:wave:

    I had an intestinal flu or something last week and now I am back into my work on uss Sulaco.:java1:
    There was not much work done...I had a little time....And now the time for 3d work will be less, because
    our factory dropped down to crysis in full speed.:eek:..other more important things occured...:confused:
    So the developing of 3D model and Papercraft itself will be longer than I though.....:curse:wall1
    ...but still online and still in progress....:thumb:

    ok..so new thing is the "COOLING TOWER" on the top of the reactor and
    the holder for the "electro lasers" (thanks Silent Lord:))

    [​IMG]

    and whole thing in soft light and shadows.

    I wish the model in a good scale 1:24, may that be possible ?

    But even in 1:600 Scale..... If i think on the possible amount of paper zu print, and to cut ?

    those are the 80mw electron-free laser turrets.:mrgreen:

    those new weapon arms are a whole new kettle of fish:

    those puppies are;
    there classed as the ships secondary armament and are 800 MeV turboalternator powered neutral particle beam weapons.

    the particle beam cannons can disable electronics and intrusmention at ranges of 100k kilometres. the Sulaco carries enough deuterium tanking to fire for 230 seconds. :cool:

    Silentlord-Where are you coming up with all your info? Is there a fountain of "Aliens" knowledge I don't know about yet?
