Okay! They went together very easily and look nice. On the squareback file, the engine undercarriage piece overlaps one of the car frame tabs. It wasn't a problem in cutting out or building, but I wanted you to know about it in case you wanted to fix it.
Here's the pics! First the regular fordor in green:

I noticed EO had the same issue I had on the truck and squareback with a gap between the runningboard and front fender that showed white in the gap. I just sharpied that area black on the 'over-the-top' front fender piece before building. on the wide end tab, a runningboard-colored stripe along the outside of the tab would be nice, so that when the builders end up with a gap (which doesn't always happen), it won't be apparent.
Woo Hoo! Big Sedans!
These really are great. Thanks
I'm also glad that you discovered Google Docs. I think Google docs is making a mistake by not having a Download button instead of going through the dropdown list, but no biggie. What I really like is that I can get the pdf's and still be able to download individual jpg's. For me, I can more easily modify jpg's.
I just wish we could encourage someone to do some gangster, g-men, gun moll, and 30s/40s figures to go with them. I really like Cherno's minis.

Yup, Docs is the best way to go, plus it doesn't mess up my bandwidth by continually checking to update files like drop-box does. I notices the little overlap in the one sedan file...no biggy. It doesn't afffect the build and I'm too lazy to go back and fix it. (I'd have to go back to the vector art, then redo the colours and layout, then export to jpgs then convert to pdfs). I guess I need a better quality control set up in process.....

Yeah, but he looks great.
Wish me luck ... tonight's project is a flat-bed version of your pickup ... yeah, the red one. The deck wasn't that hard to do, but coming up with a good way to do the rear frame and wheel assembly has me scratching my head a bit.
Maybe I should say weekend project ...
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

I usually open another figure file in gimp and cut one half of it and paste it next to the new one. Then I scale the new fig to the appropriate size depending on what it is. ex. Human, giant, dwarf. Then I always have a visual on if the scaling is right.

I think I need Gimp ... did a short bed version of this guy
Fixed the truck parts to work in the bmp file, but to get the chassis and fenders, I used the jpg file of the black squareback. That way it has fenders (which required a little trim to fit the truck bed in there), but it looks great. I don't know how to combine the files into one page, though.
Didn't want to double post, so I'll tack this on to the bottom of my old post.
Major Fail!!! I tried to mod the black truck into a paddy wagon. I think I'll be leaving the creative stuff to the experts ...
