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...

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.

I have to hold my hand up here and say the A4 sheets are my fault. Getter1 wisely suggested Letter but I was a stubborn idiot and went for the standard over here (UK).

I have learnt however and will put larger borders to ensure this doesn't hinder future builds.

I don't really want to mess about too much with Shunichi's sheets and changing sheet 2 on all the fighter models would be a nightmare now.

Hey Janx, I for one would rather see new models than new rearrangements of existing ones. Forget that I made any suggestions at all.

There are plenty work arounds anyway.

Can we have other volunteers work on the rearrangements and free the artists from the mundane and tedious?

Yeah... i really do not like the idea of printing to fit, guess I am SOL.
I've found on occasion that print to fit doesn't work :curse:. This happens when the original image size varies from page to page. What I do now is print all pages to a fixed percentage, say 93%. So far this has produced good results for me, your mileage may vary :rolleyes:
