So, I went to this site using IE: www.crowstuff.co.uk/trekminis/tng_male.htm I found that I couldn't drag anything onto the "make your miniature here" area. So, in IE I clicked the settings icon in the upper right corner (the little gear) and selected Compatibility View settings. In the dialog, I clicked Add to add "crowstuff.co.uk" to the list of websites to show in "Compatibility View". After I closed the dialog, the page refreshed. I could then drag and drop the people onto the "make your miniature here" area.
Female figures weren't dragging front and back together, so they're more work if you're hoping to have them 'line up'.
It would be a fun project (with permission) to pull the graphics out and make a layered PDF of the stuff.

That would be cooler than a night on Neptune! Who do we need to beg for permission? I'll admit I have no idea how to do what you are talking about, but I love to run the old FASA Star Trek role playing game whenever I can find a group good enough to play it. Most players have a hard time with the chain of command in an extended campaign. People get irritated taking orders from their friends. Finding people who can really leave their issues inside the game at the gaming table is tough. Using miniatures really improves game play, especially in a game where LOS is so important. I am really happy that the recent flow of figures available has figures from all of the Star Trek eras. I am older and prefer to run and play with the original series. My son and his friends prefer the movie era and Voyager. I know others who prefer the Next Generation.
Face piles of trials with smiles, it riles them to believe that you perceive the webs they weave.

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
