Once more time, I don't know if I am reinventing the wheel. Perhaps this one I am going to explain is another stupid trick but I think this can help a lot especially in modern paper models with A LOT of tiny parts. I start from the beginning so you can tell me if you had the same experience with your brand new paper wonder just arrived in mail box. I recently bought the Modelik's OL 49, a big steam locomotive in 1:25. It's a very big and detailed model with a lot of pieces all spreaded in the 26 pages that compose the kit. I think this is a common finding with large models (I think, for example, about large warships, with more than 1000 things to cut away) Like everyone of you, I think, the first thing to do is an accurate study of the drawings, trying to figure how the model is intended to be done. The drawings can be more or less easy to understand, but if you want to imagine how the thing is to be done you probably want to look at the real part the figure refers to. And here is where the nightmare starts... Sometimes it take me several minutes to find a specific piece and, very often, when I finally find it (IF I find it...), I have forgotten why I was looking for it. And this is what happened with the big locomotive. I then had an idea :idea: . It's pretty simple but effective. I started numbering the pages (they wasn't) and then turned on my PC, loaded Word and created a table with two columns: one for the pieces and one for the pages. Then, starting with page 1, I recorded all the numbers of the parts in this page in the first column and put "01" in the second. Then continued doing the same with the second page and all the other till the last one. At this point I had a complete list of the parts ordered by page. Simply re-ordering the table by the content of the first column (the parts) gave me several effects in one time: 1) I had an easy guide to find rapidly any part recalled by instructions (look for the number and you have the page...) 2) I realized that several part numbers was repeated twice (or even 3 times! :shock: ) for different pieces (looking at the actual parts) 3) and, obviously, several part numbers was missing (probably the ones referring to the misprinted numbers of above) This was an unexpected side-effect of my table, very appreciated indeed, because now I'm aware of all the mistakes that could have drive me crazy during assembly. That table was pretty easy and rapid to do and now it could be a valuable help for anyone who is going to build that model, so I think it could be useful to share them somewhere in our forums. And everyone could easily contribute with new tables like this to create a database for future reference. It would be possible to even create a new category (in parts bin?) called, who knows, "parts finding reference tables" or somewhat like this. What is your opinion?
