    It's all just too cool. The discussion on EEVs, the escape scenarios, the MFs escape systems, and the test pages you've shown. I think I may implode.

    These filmmakers and special effects shops really need to consult us first BEFORE they go making sci fi movies, now, don't they.

    Films would never be made if they consulted with us, too big of a committee. The bigger the committee the less that gets done.

    Though it would be nice. Here is an idea, take our models and go get a nice camera and start doing stop motion battles. Hmmm....

    That would be a lot of fun, and a lot of hard work, too, no doubt... no to mention frustrationwall1

    I´ve realized instead of EEV the small dropship.:thumb:
    The final scale of the SULACO will be 1:430.(the scale of the 1.7 meters long model:mrgreen:)
    In this scale will be the dropship whole 6 cm long :eek:
    Just look into pepakura window...
    I´ve just finished 3d model and arranged the pieces into virtual A4 paper.:mrgreen:

    and printed sheet ....:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:...As u see there is papercraft in the corner and the rest (3/4) is the building plan....really used sheet of paper:mrgreen::mrgreen:

    Coooool!!!

    Will you release this one prior to the SULACO? I can`t wait to build this little gem, and it would be a nice "appetizer" for the biiiiiiiiiiiig main model.
