Page layup

This is why I've, "been so quiet", page layup, yeah, sure, it looks, "simple" and, "boring" (and it is) but it requires that a lot of thought be put into the placement to allow proper margins for the die cutting.

This process allows me to get all of the parts numbered (in their order of application) and to get a final part count.

To illustrate this, note the parts and numbers in blue, these are, "optional" or, "noncritical" parts put add a great deal to the 3D aesthetics, for example, the winch and fanfare on the fantail fall in to this category and can be sacrificed if necessary to get the part count down.
