Yes! Thanks Bro!

[the photorp ports were missing, so here is a mod, if they want to add it to the download.] View attachment 217497
You are more than welcome!
Thank you for sharing this with us! I will re-upload a new file with the corrected files.

Thanks for loading this. I hadn't seen this kit in a long time.

I tried downloading the Locknar and had issues with extracting it from the RAR.

Is the file corrupted?

I keep getting a "file incomplete" message when I try to extract. When I force it open, page 3 is incomplete and other page reads empty.

I just tested it. What kind of program do you use to extract the files from? I use both win.rar and 7zip.

I contacted "LEGO" once about making single layer squares and rectangles, so you could make parts that are mirrored. They replied, "We do not take suggestions from anyone". I wasn't asking for money, I did send them some renders, stated I was asking for nothing, just the ability to purchase them. The LEGO pole up their a$$ must be very delicate, it would probably leave fiddly bits up there. :)

7 ZIP is an excellent program, and has opened files that it has found corrupted, but you have to open the console up and fiddle around. 99.9% of the time, it just opens any file I throw at it.

This is done for legal reasons to avoid infringement claims. I learned that when I was trying to submit stories and artwork to comic and movie producers. All content goes right into the trash, so don't ever bother sending anything to them. The rule is not to consider any third party input because if the company develops a similar product on their own they might be confronted with said third party claiming to be the original source of the final product or just the idea. If they allowed submissions they could not prove that a claim of a third party would not be true even if that was the case. I understand the logic but this in turn makes it hard for me to understand how they are able to acquire new creative people for their team(s).

I may bare partial responsibility for this caution, after a certain incident with PP and my script that was hacked up and gutted to make up an episode, using my work, uncredited, as the B-Story. I was told that after that incident, PP stopped taking non-staff submissions and other companies may have followed their lead.

Ugly affair but too frequent an event in creative entertainment mediums...

Very interesting. I had no idea that something like this existed. Too bad that the resolution is so low. However, the hangar bay scene is inspiring. :)

I have been working on the larger models I have enlarged recently, along with Ron C's 1701. I have found thru much trial and error that you don't want to go more than 2 feet long. You can, but you will need large heavy supports. I have found that rolled up paper tubes make good straight supports. For curved supports, you might as well just go with plastic. Cut the curved structures and layer. Remember you will need lots of supports- Plastic knives, forks and spoons will work well if you heat bend them to shape, buy the opaque silver kind for little greeble parts, coat hangers also. Things start weighing too much and the thickness needs to be layered or billowing will occur. If you want to make a 4-6-foot-long enlargement, make stencils and then print details for cutting out and greebling on with glue. Even poster board [not poster paper] will bend somewhat, and works well, just print on label stock and cut and fit the pieces on like a puzzle, but you will have lines and bumps if you do. Lots of black paper will be needed for lite boxes and seam blocking if you use LEDs. So now you will have to learn scratch building models. Painting, decaling, puttying and sanding and clear gloss and matte over coats will be needed. Spills and glue drops will happen so put down tarps instead of paper. Noise and sounds and smells will be happening, so try to be polite to your neighbors.

So, yes. Keeping the paper models smaller around 2 feet or so, will be better in the long run.

The abscess in my jaw finally popped, revealing that it was there and infected for a few years without really bothering me. right now, with the antibiotics I am safe according to the doctor today, but I feel like I have a migraine, ear infection, 6 cavities aching and a mild concussion. Aside from that, I'm doing fine!
I have seen a few comments on how they packed up the LEM so I am posting this for the crowd.
