  1. Made me think of the line from "The Shining " "Daddy's home"
  2. A photo-table is highly recommended, they come in various sizes and qualities. Choose a table that has an acrylic flexible top. Blue or green back drop paper will work amazingly if you like to post-edit picture and insert a background. The sweep is important as it will eliminate shadows, and using in-direct backlight your model will certainly stand out. See this one
  3. Richard, go into your setting and change from color to b/w. I am an avid pro-amateur photographer (40 years experience), and considering going back to regular analog camera along using digital. I still have my equipment except the darkroom items.
  4. Chris, with that type of single piece hull you can convert her to an R/C ship. There's plenty of space inside for all the equipment.

In order to get a good "cutting" laser you will find ones starting at 2400 dollars. Anything below 1000 will not hold up for what we are doing. Ask Chuck what he is using. He certainly know the laser cutter. You need a good vector based program something like Corel Draw, which has a steeper learning curve. I do have a suggestion, search if you have a MakerSpace in your area, they will certainly have a
  10. The last sign is true, have seen at many MC dealers. Fun but true!
  11. I have that book too, the detailing in plans are just amazing in the AOTS books.
