    I noticed that the model parts come near to the edge of the sheet.

    Will the Sulaco parts be close to the sheet's edge as well? This will be an issue with North American builders with 8.5" x 11" standard printers.

    Ok a semi-odd request..
    I need a picture of the dropship bay as if you were standing directly below it looking up at it. Would also need pictures of the drop doors too, inner and outer skin..
    Can anyone guess what I'm up too? ;)

    Well, here's mine. How's everyone else going?

    [​IMG]

    I lost a bit off the edges even when printing on A4, nothing critical though. printed on 160gsm, as with no tabs it needs a bit of strength. Only problem encountered was the side/missile pods coved the front of the '01' on the sides, that and its REALLY small.............

    ...sorry about the really dark picture. I'll try to remedy that shortly.

    For what u need this?...:eek::rolleyes:


    ___________________________________________________________
    at first some facts: I´ve printed the Tiny Dropship into 160g/m2 card stock paper. This material (paper) is on the edge of comfortable work,
    but the result is more durable.:thumb:
    As it was written above the PDF document represents the style of future look of the Uss Sulaco.
    The pdf is like bitmap or jpg format. ( the parts of the model are on the whole place without white area)
    If you will print this pdf file ( always with fit to page feature on:twisted:), your printer will downscale this sheet (onto 94% mostly) and add non printable area (9~12 mm white edge).
    I´ve calculated with 12mm in Pepacura Designer....My printer is making 9mm edge...so the final model of the dropship is 6.2cm long instead of 6cm (in my case).
    [​IMG]

    It´s not too bad...from 1.7meter will be 1.75....it means that i will have my sulaco 5 centimeters longer. that means 1:418 scale....

    But who cares : it doesn't matter what scale will you obtain, the inportant thing is print the sheets of the papercraft always with same printer settings...nothing more.:mrgreen:

    *smiles* Sorry my oddball sense of humor comes out when it's late and I'm tired.
    I'd like to display the Dropship as is if it's being dropped from a launch bay 'installed' in the ceiling.
