    I took a break from armor and built this for my youngest son. Not to worry, he's 34 now.

    I felt the interceptor was a bit large so I reduced it by 50%. Very nice kit and along with this model I built the Fighter also at 50 %. John

    Looks really nice! Which designer's are they?

    I always wondered where the Miller galaxy was. sign1

    That looks fantastic, John! It could pass for an actual movie prop!
    That space picture really brings it to life!

    Elliot, I believe the Miller Galaxy lies somewhere between the constellations of Sobriety and Inebriation in the Particus Animalis Nebula.:twisted:

    Russell thank you for your kind comments.
    BTW, you are really up on your astronomy. I wish I knew the location of the Miller galaxy, it would have been added to the original post. sign1 John

    Hehehe! I have been to the Miller Galaxy quite a few times already!:mrgreen:
    A great place to visit. It's really quite easy to get there, but I have trouble remembering the way back for some odd reason!:rolleyes:

    I've been to some galaxies, don't remember their names. Some how I too found my way back but I don't go out there any more. The last time WAS the last time. Just circle the planet a few times. John:cool:

    Hi John-That looks great! This may be a dumb question, but how did you manage to shrink the images from the PDF's? I have the files already but don't know how to reduce the model size.

    Not a dumb question and you were smart enough to ask. First I opened the PDF file in Photo Shop and saved it as a BMP file. Then I open the BMP with Paint Shop Pro and printed it at 50%. If I can be of further help let me know.

    And if anyone has a better way please let me know as I am always ready to learn something new. John

    Don't know if it is a better way, but for those of us who can't afford to buy Photo Shop, all I do to reduce the size is on the printer setup when I print, I tell to print at 50%.

    adobe reader 7.0 has a "print multipe pages per sheet" option" if you print 4 per sheet, you'll get a 50% reduction. Also check your printer options, many have a "multiple pages per sheet" option as well.

    Wow! Thanks for all the great tips! I'll try them and see how small I can get one built.
