    I bet. I feel really lucky to be the only one to try this puppy out. It won't be long now before everyone gets it.

    I'm lovin' the build and I'm sure anyone else will. Whether they go for the BIG or small version, this is a fantastic model.

    I'm moving onto the other engines tonight. You can see that pylon/mounting on the center of the back end? That's the engine I'm building now, get that on then onto the side main engines. :)

    Celestra on station!

    Ok guys.

    Chris has uploaded the Celestra for you all. It's a lines version but the lines are faint so they'll not show up too much against the grey textures.

    This is the large version. Selfishly I just went with what would appeal to me. Tomorrow, I'll have the smaller version done and available for the likes of Nothing who prefers them smaller to make the most of display space.

    The instructions are there too.

    Thanks as usual to SJ for cleaning up the mesh for me to work on. This model looks great in 3D and will as a papermodel too. Hopefully, if I've done my bit right. :)

    Get yourself off to the downloads section. Enjoy!

    Nothing, I agree. If anyone has downloaded these and built any, it'd be nice to see some pics here. :) I've seen the number and know they've been downloaded from the downloads section. Come on fellas, let's see 'em! :)

    And now, for your entertainment

    At long last the Colonial Liners are in the download section. :thumb:

    I've posted the six regular size versions and am in the process of preparing the large versions. I'll be emailing those to Chris for linking since the files are all over the 2MB limit.

    The instructions are posted in a separate document.

    Go get em!

    On their way

    I've got em all done, but I have to email them to Chris so he can link them - they are all over the 2MB limit. I'm not sure how many to send him at once though so I'll send him one and ask.

    From me, You're welcome!! I've loved every minute of it, it's great to be part of a team like this. I look forward to doing more ships with these guys.

    Hey SJ, the BIG liners are now up to download too:

    Did you put these into a ZIP? I know I'll lose my connection if I try to open up 2Mb PDFs online. Someone tell me why I'm still on dial-up? I've forgot!

    No they are in PDF format. I try to upload in the same format that people supply them to me in..... I think I can change the policy to not open a pdf in a window though and to just download it - I think that might be a better option anyway.... I will check.

    I had to change the web setting in adobe.....
    open adobe
    click edit -> preferences -> general
    Click options in the column down the left
    Under web browser options uncheck display PDF in browser

    This is for adobe 5 full (what we have at work) after the change it prompted me to save.

    To zip or not to zip...

    I tried zipping them but they didn't shrink all that much so I decided to just leave them. A 2.1mb PDF reduced to about 1.6 mb (25%). Is this worth it to those on dial up? I must admit I've had high-speed so long I've lost perspective.

    On to business:

    I'm working on the Platform ship (Foundry?). The mesh is at least as detailed as the Celestra, maybe more. There are some tricky elements to it as well. It may take a while.

    I'm off to a workshop for the weekend so won't be doing much for the next few days. In the meantime, here's updated status shots.

    Have fun building everybody!
