    The above can be downloaded from my site Free card model airplane sites .
    I am considering re-making all my models at a scale of 1:144 if there is any interest? It's not just a matter of scaling the old models to 50% - quite a bit of thought must go into it. The Martin Mars will still be BIIIIIGGG!
    Also, I wish to make all sorts of improvements to the existing models - motors, rivetting etc. The pixel nature of the lines and curves will remain (I use MSPaint with some tools from Photoshop, the other software is too expensive for me). I have carefully considered blurring the pixels - looks better - but is by no means more exact.

    By the way, does anyone else have the same problems as me: I have to login and give my password 4 times (!) before I can post a New Thread. I click the Remember Me box, but this has no effect.

    Thanks, Edi,
    It's a matter of space - my wife is threatening me.

    No problems on the signin here, have 2 computers that keep me logged in perpetually. Have you tried clearing all your cookies and trying again?

    No real input on the scale issue. IF I were interested in trying a build at 1/144 - I'd probably be fine with taking the original, reducing the size by 50% and seeing what I'd get ;)

    Thanks Dani,
    Will try removing cookies.
    Strange, I'm on 4 other forums and I have no problems there.

    Thanks Major,
    I think your right - problem with me, I prefer designing and leave the dirty work to you (like politicians and the military - one designs the war from his armchair, the other does the dirty work). Have you any water bombers in mind? I seem to have dried up.
