    Unfortunately I'm only saving the files at the moment as I have too much on the work table already. But this is an amazing project and I can't wait to be able to have a go at it myself.

    Got some card on order to make Jan's APC model - and the Pulse rifle too if I can.

    Hi everyone, I am planning to start the build of SULACO... but the original size is too big and my family member will not allow me to put it inside my home.... so i want to ask: does anyone intend to build it 75% less (ie 1A4 page print 2 pages)?? Do you think there has many tiny parts afterward? Coz I afraid 75% less will face large difficulties to any tiny parts afterwards.... any comments?

    Wish you all have a happy and fruitful Chinese New Year... yes... tmr is 1st day of new Chinese year here
    :D

    I'm building it at 88% (letter size paper) and so far have had no problems at all.

    It's Group 6! The underbelly section!

    My goodness!! Every two weeks is just too nail-bitingly long to wait in my opinion, but even I understand that quality takes time.

    Keep up the good work, Jan, and many thanks!

    You can also do it bigger if you open it in Illustrator or similar program , scale it onto a 11x17" paper and print it that way. Putting them on a jump drive and taking them to a place like office depot, they can print larger sizes so you don't waste your ink.
    I'm looking at printing it on thin styrene so it lasts longer than normal paper would . If i can print it in styrene I would like to add a few raised panels and weather it more ;)

    I am doing a similar thing with a Battlemech I'm "biggifiying" for my son. Going from 28mm to somewhere around 1/6 so he can use it with his Star Wars action figures. Although I went to Kinko's and had it printed in black and white on regular paper since I'm going to add greeblies and repaint it anyway.

    I've actually become a fan of taking a model to a print shop. If you buy your own cardstock, the cost of getting one printed, even in color, is still around 50 cents a page. And it's better quality than I can get off my printer at home.
