    Ya that is the Darkbird with the DYRL Superpack. My First model of yours was Skull Leader with the cockpit from the Detailpack. I havent had any luck getting the canopy done right yet.

    Unikron,

    Skull Leader with cockpit :D :D :D Now that's a beautiful thing :D

    The canopy can be a pain but keep trying. You ony gotta make 1 sucessful mold and you got all A,J,&S variants covered ;)

    Keep it up. I wanna see more.

    Pool,

    That's great :D I ask for build pics an woah, here they come! :D

    Keep em comin folks ;)

    Unikron & Janx,

    Battroid is not as scary as you think ;) For one there's no cockpit :p Well unless.........Oh nevermind :p Don't ask :p

    The Battroid's body is very easy to assemble. The hardest part is the nose and joints if you add em.

    I'm having some issues with all of the VF models and I am sure that many North Americans will have the very same issues.

    A4 Paper Size vs Letter Size.

    Many pages are setup so that parts are quite close to the edge of the sheets leading to truncated parts. Some designers who put parts on A4 leave instructions, artist graphics and personal info to the outer edges. When you print to Letter Size the top and or bottom gets cut off which is OK as long as parts are not interfered with.

    The solution to this problem is a bit easy. Moving large parts to the center of the sheet and smaller parts out from the center towards the edges. You can get the parts closer together and allow for more parts on a sheet, placing titles, credits and other information to the top and bottom.

    I sooooooo want to build at least one of these puppies. :mrgreen:

    I am building my first VF1J at 50% size so I did not notice any border problem.

    Now that I am starting the cockpit I am beginning to ponder the wisdom of that decision. hamr

    So Janx, that is funny, I find these paper models a lot more fulfilling than WOW, though I was deeply addicted to it, but I leave behind a lvl 80 pally and lvl 70 mage, now I just want to build a fleet of these birds.

    as long as people are requesting new arrangements, can we have the display stand on a separate page? It is rather atrocious on the black ink cartridge and I would rather make my own stands.

    I'd have to agree about the paper size. Granted, printing at 92% gets pretty good results without too much compromise...

    Over here we're running on A4 anyway, so I'm sound as a pound! sign1

    jaeike, that looks very cool! How difficult was the canopy?

    Steve0,

    Print at fit to margins and there will be no probs. I just printed out the Hikaru's VF-1J and all fit ok.

    Make sure centered setting is on as well.
