Okay I think I have the time to cut them today. This is going to be difficult for me as I'm using 130 gsm matt photopaper. I rarely make my paper models with anything under 200 gsm because I prefer the strength. However I just can not find a photo quality card that thick so all the images just come out dull and really really dark. So for this build I'm sacrificing extra strength to beauty.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the Squadron Nose and Tail Art, as well as your remodel of the Percheron with the extra equipment options. Not to mention the Apsara and all the other Hangar Bay goodies.
Now to find my key to my Craft Robo so I can change the blade setting.
This 130 gsm is great for floor tiles that are going to be backed but its not that great for models. I don't know how you guys use this stuff!
Damn damn damn. The cutfiles just are not working. They are off every time. Well I'm pretty irate, I ripped up the batch and I'm going to take a day or two off. No idea why it's not working. I've never had a problem before.

Okay not as pretty but I've printed it off on the thicker 220 gsm paper (I've found some 220 photo matt paper going to have to order it) and after reprinting the first page three times now I've gotten them to accurately cut. I'm 99% sure it's user error. Now to edge.

Nice job! I've often thought about doing action figure scaled versions of some of the models so I could put more detail on the smaller parts. I'd have preferred to design the ordnance to be more visually interesting than a bunch of boxes with holes painted on them, but if I had to roll little missiles and stuff at that size I'd probably lose the will to live halfway through the first load.
Rolling isn't the worst part, the fins and pointy noses and the attachment points are worse. I've tried it with models of modern jets a few times, and quit.
At least you make models in sizes big enough to hold - I have (unassembled) and have seen pictures of assembled 1/700 warships... folks make them! Even the little bits, like lifeboats. From many tiny tiny pieces. Big Props to them, but I have trouble seeing the parts, let alone handling or cutting them out...
Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
