    WOW! Ok, that answers ALL my questions. Your reasoning was completely logical and concise, sure you're not a Vulcan? (LOL) Anyway, thank you very much, I like 731 m. And if nothing else it totally puts her majesty into perspective, which was what I was looking for in the first place.
    Thanks again, now don't let me distract you any further, I'm dying to build one!
    Cheers.sign1

    D-Whale: MGS4 railgun and HunterKiller Tank vids means one thing. The 3d model is finished for unfolding ...nothing more....if there will ne some time I have ready those models for next work.:thumb:...the video is like a bonus , minor product from developing the papercraft.:mrgreen:

    Well ...new thing happend:rolleyes:

    I´ve started to working with the Pepakura Designer 2 finally.
    The old tenkai served good ,but uss Sulaco need something special....:mrgreen:

    The work with it is more easier as i noticed....
    the unfolding, rotating and positioning the pieces , scale management and exporting options.....

    I´ve started with...

    [​IMG]

    ....right antenna array:thumb:
    ....and automaticly unfolded...:oops:

    [​IMG]

    the basic color is aplicated to the model for easier texturing...later in paint shop pro...the resolution will be the same as usual before in my papercrafts ..72DPI.
    but with little differennce....there will be smooth edges and nice flaps on the pieces :mrgreen:.....as were exported from pepakura into bitmap sheet.:thumb:
    negative or longer part is that placing, rotating and flapping the pieces into the sheets in pepakura .but the result (exported bitmap) is better than sheets i have before wall1.
    .....and one picture from pepakura.....this one was printsceened 4 HOURS after the automatic unfold (picture above)....

    [​IMG]

    it seems that allmost nothing happend:rolleyes:....one thing....notice that dimensions situated in right downer corner...u will see the real dimensions of the unfolded group of objects...so the antenna array will be 29.6cm x 38.2cm x 11.3 cm:twisted:

    more soon.....:p

    I saw the Alien 3 moment ago and started thinking:mrgreen:...

    The texture of the sulaco from this movie will be great....and cost a little.
    Just changing the color scheme...and the text will be white..only.hmmm:confused:
    well.....Better to have 2 ships instead of one.:rolleyes:

    ...OK no more words...here is known side plate with both color schemes.
    Aliens - blue one
    Alien3 - brown one

    [​IMG]
    (texture is scaled down to 56%)

    its great how easy u can change the whole ship...:rolleyes:

    and thinking continues....:mrgreen:

    There were two conestoga class ships in the Alien 3. U remember that science vessel who landed into Fiorina 161? Yeah ..second conestoga....
    ..The Patna

    [​IMG]

    from now on we have 2 ships with 2 colors chemes...so 4 building chances :thumb::mrgreen:

    i am a great ALIENS FAN too.:mrgreen::thumb:
    But i take ALIEN3 for mercy because of EEV UNIT and masked Sulaco.:rolleyes:...
    ...I hope there is some Alien3 SULACO and PATNA fan too:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:
    ================================

    I saw another conestoga class ship in Colonial Marines comix 1993...
    It´s name was MELVILLE......have someone interest?:mrgreen::rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    but the ship in the comix is little modified...so the silhouettes of both ships have little differences....:p

    [​IMG]

    back to the Sulaco...that´s the major thing....:wave:


    THE USS RÜKR sounds great:rolleyes:.....have someone interest for that side plate:mrgreen:.....I am open for any kind of ideas.....:twisted:

    btw....have someone clue about the eev units"hangar" location?...where can be situated?...i think somewhere in the front of the ship..on the belly maybe?...:confused:
