    Just awesome, seriously.
    You will have to open a Sulaco Museum in your room, because you will not be able to move the finished model out ;) Have you considered the means of transport for this beast? (in case it does not fly or warp on its own, it surely looks like it could :D)

    I guess I'll have to split the model into two halves

    That model is beautiful. If you ever get married ( I am assuming you may not be, because my wife wold just have said "NO" to that model) make her sign an agreement that the model stays. Just to play it safe. :)

    even more important, make her sign an agreement that should you two ever split, you get custody. :)

    Excellent Work so far, Ive been saving these pics for my own build ;)

    Once again, your work speaks for itself.

    Top railgun
    Group 10 is the smallest one in the Sulaco paper model with no doubt, but the hardest to build too. There are lots of small parts, rounded corners, lot´s of correction on the edges and scouring the overlaps in this group. That´s why I´ve decided to give it full row of 5 stars. (Level of difficulty 5/5) Group 10 - the Top rail gun has 32 parts on one sheet.

    Excellent! You could sell that for big bucks I'm sure, but it would never be enough! :)

    I totally agree with that!! I hope you are making a case to display it in. I would not want to leave that to the elements. I also hope your printer was using pigment ink instead of dye based. The dye based is rarely UV protective.
