    Great job, this is like one of those large wooden model boats a long time to build one piece at a time but the finished effort is worth it.

    Thanks for completing this model, Jan! I've been holding off on building it because I wanted to see the rest of it (specifically the engine). Now that it's finally done I'll have to start working on it. :thumb:

    it s a great ship..
    only downside of it...its no star wars :) (sorry i am a mayor starwars nerd)

    But else...its one of the greatest ships in papercraft world.
    the details are WAUW...(dutch for awsome)

    I always look when there is a building update off the ship around here..

    Who knows maybe one day :)

    A wonderful X-mas present!
    It's been an honour to watch this model grow. With this one you have secured for yourself a place in the paper model history books.

    Greetings from Germany!

    I hope I have all of these. This model is so amazing. I think it will make or break marriages! Excellent, awesome design and workmanship. All given for FREE! It wasn't FREE, because Jan's time and effort, materials, and those who helped them, put so much into it, but they offer it up for FREE! What an excellent honorable group of people. Thank you Jan Rukr and gang! You guys have set a standard and have raised the bar! :)

    Jan, You and many others have given up 4 years of your life, facing many difficulties, and hardships, to design and build something that was already an Icon, into something that is STILL an Icon, but can be enjoyed by anyone. You have given this exceptional gift to the world giving up any reason or want for payment. a beautiful gift, and one that is not going unthanked.

    Thank you so much, this will be a major undertaking for anyone who wants to build it, but it will be fun. I salute you. :thumb:

    Im preparing for ALIENSPAPERCRAFT CUP 2013 competition. Don´t be fooled, the USS Sulaco is allmost done from one side only :mrgreen:

    ...it´s two things: doing the papercraft and glueing the papercraft...so the prototype is not finished as far as i wanted.

    Wow!

    What were the small craft around it? The dropship I recognized, but the other three I've never seen before.
