    Jan has been working to get a new replacement, and as much as we ALL want to help get him back on his feet, he has repeatedly asked that noone send him money. it will not be long before he is back up and running, we just need to have a little patience. :) After all, the Man is a Genius, and his work is worth waiting for :)

    I've just realized that I've spent 45 minutes of working time on this thread... Hope I don't get fired!
    Now I have 3 things to do:
    1) Throw away all that damned minis and devote myself to paper and glue
    2) build several training models
    3) start work on sulaco

    off course, I've to build another home to store the sulaco...

    Thanks to Jan and thank to all of you: you are very skilled modeller (I'm admired and scarred at the same time... I'll never reach that level in my present life.)

    It is addicting isn't it!! This link (at the bottom) has a bazillion free models you can download and try, to get yourself used to the process. They have very simple, all the way up to, "who could possibly build that" models, and they are all FREE.:thumb: I also highly recommend you check out this thread, it has a list of all of Ron Caudillo's work, a Pillar in the community.

    Back on track at last, and well worth the wait.

    I hope Jan is well, and fighting the good fight in everything he does.

    Well I have completed section 3 (antenna array) and have started section 1. I didn't like how the pieces fit together in section 1 so I did my own modifications.

    Instead of building the blocks and then gluing them together (I tried that and it didn't come out well), I built the section as a single piece. Since it is rather large, I used chipboard to line the piece and give it structure. Where the sides curve to the top, I glued a second piece of cardstock to reinforce it since chipboard does not bend well.

    With only one end closed up, the piece is sturdy enough to support 1 pound of weight with little to no deformation.
