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...

Toman: yes. though the kids need to be reminded to put them away when they are done. I've come home from work and they are all watching tv while the bikes are sitting in the front lawn. kids

Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/
