    My current desktop at work, and my latest completed build. Not paper, I'm afraid, but I am aware there is a paper ASK 21 out there, also in 1:32 scale. I'll have to try it soon!

    Wow, that's beautiful Johnny.

    I would give up one of my arms to live there! I was going to say leg but I would definately want to be able to walk around once I was there!

    Although I have the 'print Screen' key on my keyboard, It does Not do anything.
    I do not get any prompt after hitting the key.
    Also, Mine is a split key with 'SysRq' below 'Print Screen'.
    Another posibilty, I have changed to a win95 keyboard with full mouse functions. keys & touch pad.

    I use xp home os.

    Any other options??

    Dnlgtr.............. Windows paint will allow re-sizing.

    Look under Image|
    .......................|_ Attributes


    You should be able to resize to to 640 x 480

    Save as file type .jpg (JPEG). The file size will be a lot smaller than .bmp; also the file size limit for .jpg should be larger than 19.5kB.
