    Jan, did I get one post in the czech forum right that you`re working on a solution for the "the bow modules have a different length than they should have and so the endplate will no fit"-issue?

    Solving this "fit" problem right now....there will be few stripes of the side texture for camouflaging the "hole" and the tempate for filling the hole....I hope that all this will come to life in right time in friday:mrgreen:

    I wanted to ask you guys, especially in jan, if this error had been corrected, or we must do as he did?
    Thanks

    See the quote in my post above yours - Jan is working on a fix for it (more or less an extra part to cover up the gap).

    Forgive me, Marco, I did not realize you were talking about this, I do not understand English well and for this I use a translator.

    No problem - I`m with you when it comes to using a translator, as I`m following some build of the Sulaco on two Czech forums... I GUSS I'm getting most of the postings there right, but the result of the translator is often... well, "interesting", so to speak.

    Group 9 is online, and Jan adressed the fit problem at the end of the bow parts, too (a special thanks for doing so!).

    I guess I'm going to have to buy a dozen new cartridges so I can build this beast. I'm sure it'll hit hardest on the black and blue ink wells.

    Thank you for the next update :)
    I look forward to the section number 3 As the two weeks waiting Section number 7 is quite small.

    But thank you and look forward to the next :)

    I thought I'ld share some pictures of my buildup (to proof that I'm actually BUILDING the model, not just downloading the files...) - not all available groups are ready yet, but most of them:

    Next Group (03 - Antenna array) is online. Looks challenging...

    By the way, Jan, good idea to take 4 weeks for the next group. I doubt that most of us will be able to finish group 3 in just 2 weeks.

    Don´t worry Marco, there will be "easy" (one sheet) Gorup next time.:mrgreen:

    I must correct my activities and piorities....There is really hard pressure on me. Thre Sulaco model, my work(specially) and motor sport activity (Hobbyautocross racing) with my brother.

    Sulaco is still priority No.1, but simply , I don´t have time for it...wall1

    I hope that the one month break gives me just the right time to correct my whole life and bring back the well-being.:wave:

    I don´t want to leave all of you (sulaco papermodellers) behind. The regular updates gives me a frame , a rule to release all groups of the model.:whip1:

    I want to make an exhibition of all the completed sulaco models next year in Brno (czech rep). It will be a real climax of the hard work invested into this model. All modellers with their sulaco models will be decorated with plaquette represents my "THANK YOU" for your courage to build such a beast. I don´t know real date but it will be end of the February or first weekend in the March (2012). The exhibition will be as a part of my 4´th Alienspapercraft Cup competition (for paper sci-fi models) which is a part of the Paper kingdom (Papírové království ni czech) competition fo all kind of papermodels.

    here are few pics and one vid....how is it look like:
