RED ALERT

Now that is cool!

I'm trying that. I may even print it out at 200%, print it on some thicker stock and see what happens.

I say again, THAT is cool.

What a brilliant Christmas Present - now that has really taken some serious design work...

I shall definitely contribute to this...

Cheers

Mark,
I would use the wood glue sparingly and not cut with water.
You don't want too much water, otherwise it will warp/wrinkle the papers,
Brush it on lightly.

Awesome that Commander, Thank you UR the :thumbup:

I downloaded it's contents and played with the rescue pod (colour)
I'll email it to you, and tell me what you think, if it is worth the effort
I'll pass it around to those that want it.

:D

The red does need saturating a little. Best to choose the red channel in your image editor and saturate that only otherwise you might affect the other colours.

I'll be doing a normal pod. :)

Yep, I noticed that too.

I left a little here and there in the trimming just to use as gluing tabs.

Print out another and start over Mark.

It's easy to see where a tab will help now that you've started a CM already. I made several of the small "V" type tabs they show on other parts. I made the "V's" a little longer and narrower than they show them also to keep it from distorting.

This thing is like working with egg shells!

I've moved on to the spine for now.

Lol, I don't think this'll be a 'speedbuild' - my hands are in tatters already! :sweat:

OR........shrugger,

I have a printer, a Laser printer in fact.

I,
might be inclined to
help you out. That is, if you ask him really nice.

I could print everything for you and send it to you?

I don't mind begging. Groveling however, is almost beneath me. :p

Let me know the infered cost and I'll send it right over.
