Sure, I still have all of the models as pdos and can make directions at any time. You'll have to excuse me, but I often don't see the need, thus I don't plan for it. It all just seems so obvious to me. Why not send me a model with no directions and see if I can figure it out? That sounds like fun.

They are not difficult, I just noticed on the big boy you have 7 pages of parts, and its not completely obvious where they all go. I'm real bad at directions also. I generally just take lots of photographs from different angles as I build the model and call them directions. for example:

Having the pdo files is also helpful, on some of the models, I'll just take snapshots of the pdo views from various angles and distances and include them as well.

Excellent! I'll do just that, BTW, I try to do the directions as photo spreads as well, I just get into the actual building and some times forget to take a picture of step, or two.

Here's an example of where I made a video of the buildup and resultant sculpting. I used screens of the pdo as well as of the actual build and resultant sculpt. I've had hundreds of downloads and have as yet to see one build outside of my own.

I heard from Mr. Leslie today and looks as though he will be hosting the Tin Toy Rocket. I had a little down time today, waiting on silicone and resin to set up and wnet in and played with some CG software and came up with a couple of intersting shots I thought I would share. Additionally, I'll be printing these models up and creating directions and a movie, after which I'm going to coat themwith several coats of primer and spot putty. When all of that is done I'm going to make palster molds and cast them, then I'll detail them and decal them, I might even light them up and send them off to a friend to vacuum form them. I have my own vac table, but I'been running new electrical lines in my shop and it's down right now.

Oh yeah and I tweaked the textures a bit. I may rework them altogether.

i got it on a site on webs.com.
i could dig up a link. i use vaccuform or press mold parts on all my light up paper kits.
i got a million pics of the last few years of building.

With regards to the BOP... Yeah, if you are not part of the Clown Posse Clique and you don't kiss up to the right bunch of fellers, believe me, you're in for trouble.

Any hoo..... Got the rocket printed up today and will have it built and directions posted ASAP, I've also went shopping for E-Engines to lauch it with, Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!

Definately! I'm going to strengthen the shell to allow it to hold up to the thrust pressure and turbulence.
