    I have the model completed in one week every evening after work.
    The guide was easy to understand, and I took many photos from the building.

    Then I made in a Slideshow've summarized. See this link here:

    Awesome work!

    Fantastic work!

    In fact, I liked the job Sanginus did so well, with his permission, I used his pictures to re-write and improve the instructions. There is now an illustrated guide available as a PDF. It hasn't been submitted anywhere yet, but I can email you a copy if you PM me.

    Many thanks to you both, the ship is determined on the next BT Con many curious heads turn. :twisted:

    I want to thank you again K'Jev, for the great model that you and I kindly
    have provided. I am very honored that you used my pictures for the revised guidance.

    This could be useful!

    I remember buying a "scaled" dropship awhile back. It ended up being scaled the hexagonal map!:curse:

    Sure made my mechs look huuuuge though!

    TheLeopard came about out of desperation. I have seen pictures of a resin model on the internet, but could never find one, so I finally broke down and designed one myself. It took me all summer, since it was the first model I ever designed, and I spent a lot of time figuring out the process.

    This model will always be free, and if for some reason you can't find it anywhere, PM me with your email and I will get you a copy.

    My first attempt at test building was off. The ship ended up over 2 feet long, ate my entire supply of ink, and most of my cardstock.

    It's the monster on the left side of the picture. Of course, for the next test, I went too far the other way... If you follow the prototypes from left to right, you can see progress, and how I learned to print parts without skins.
