    G'day, I seem to have shrunk!

    And now have really put my foot in it. The stick is to support the leg, since the last edition was bowing forward in respect (since the ankles were weak and didn't provide enough support) This was the actual design plan. I only started with the head so I could get the puns in :) The...

    G'day, I seem to have shrunk!

    I seem to be on this trend of rebuilding models that I built ages ago, and now it's Striker Eureka from the original Pacific Rim. To save space, ink and paper I've scaled down the model by 50%. Starting with the face. Did I mention that the greebling potential on this model is massive and I...

    To Voyage to the Delta Quadrant (for the third time....) :)

    @spaceagent-9 I laminate after printing but before cutting. The only negative to this technique is sometimes the black paper shows on your edges, I then "patch" with another copy of the same part, printed on the thinnest paper I can find. I cut the edge of the part (as thin as possible) and then...
