    Fantastic! You rock!:thumb: I started working on the overlay last night, this is going to look sweet! I also resized to 11" X 17" cardstock, but I don't think that's going to be big enough. I'll get the 11" X 17" sheets printed up and guage the build. I may follow along with you, while I'm working on the mesh overlay and tweeking some of the parts. I looked at the model last night and the nacelles seem to need lengthened slightly, to be in correct size ratio to the main body.

    Thanks again for doing this.:mrgreen:
  6. no problem ive been wanting to do this ship for a year but finnaly got the confidence to soon i can start just need another 2 hours for batteries
