    knife Member has a nice display stand for their Embraer Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 kits, if you need inspiration. The models are top notch, worth downloading and building.

    Thanks for the support guys!

    The model design is with Rhino, and the postprocessing was done in Illustrator ^^ The cover sheet was Photoshopped from scratch with a little help from Terragen :D

    Nice inspiration! I will look into that!

    Do you unfold in rhino and export to illustrater?

    i guess what im tryin to find out is this. i unfold in pep. pep only exports in low res but can print to pdf in hi rez. i dont knoe how to get the pages out of a pdf into say psp and maintain the hi rez. i would like the option of post unfold editing, just dont know how to do it. im sure that was clear as mud!

    "Don't Panic" Get Ghostscript 8.62 from then get GSview 4.9 from and do exactly what it says. Open your pdf with GSview and go to File/Convert and choose the output format and resolution you want. Include the output format, eg " .jpg " when naming the output. The output will open in PSP but check that the dpi is exactly what you want, there seems to be a slight glitch there. Like I said "Don't Panic" and don't even try to understand what else the program can do unless you're a genius.

    I picked up a copy of imsi's pdf to word. It was one of those "free after rebates" offer at a computer megastore. I convert the PDF file to a Word document, and if I want to resize it, I use Microsoft's PowerPoint. PowerPoint has the advantage of small file size and anybody wants to repaint a file they can easily grab the BMP file from PowerPoint. That being said, I think I will take looker's suggestion and download Ghostscript.

    --Hope that's problem solved for you, Nothing ^^

    I've been feeling really bad for the past few days... Thought I had a health problem and went to 3 hospitals and all doctors said I'm fine. Don't know what's wrong with me but anyway no progress on the Comet for the moment......... Off to a psychiatrist tomorrow >_<

    Yea, well it might just be a teenager's problem......... I went to the doctor the other day and told him I might have some form of c**c*r, and he, being someone who had it himself, and survived, told me straight away that I'm too young to even have the right to talk about that >_< When I got back I laughed at myself hard. --The lesson is, if I don't study medicine, I'd better not make unrealistic inferences, and nor should I doubt the doctor! :D

    Hey I'd better not derail this thread either! Thanks for making me feel better Nothing! sign1
