    :wave: Started this build for a friend... The template is meant for A4 size paper but I enlarged it to A3.

    Seems simple enough :mrgreen: but as it is enlarged, I had to do quite a bit of greebling to make the details 'pop'... didn't want a flat model.:cry:

    The build is slow due to the massive amount of greebling needed to make it nice. :oops: Anyway, here are the build pics...

    Your attention to detail is FANTASTIC!!! You are doing an OUTSATNDING job on the this model.
    The fact that you are taking the time to add all of those greebles, is most impressive.
    You are not only doing this model justice, but the designer as well.
    Keep up the GREAT work.
    I will be following this thread.

    Marco, actually they are parallel, it doesn't show up in the photos - my photography skills suck big time! lol :mrgreen:

    Bit late to the party, been on holiday.

    Amazing work. Very crisp clean build :thumb:
    Greebling takes ages, but adds depth and detail.

    Do you do a mass cutting session. I find I get bored just cutting and want to start building too early.
