Seeking a kit cutter for B52
Up front I want to apologize for possibly repeating a previous post if I already asked. I do not cut my own parts out very well. I am wanting to build a B-52 and looking for someone to cut a kit. I could have sworn someone already told me but I cannot find anything sent to me to save my life.
Is there anybody out there that can cut a B-52 kit around 60"-80"?

Ya, I know. I had asked someone in these forums about making one of the kits made in the forums and was told it was made but one of of the online kit cutters but I can't find the message or a kit cutter that lists it.
So..... I have the Chris Gold plans ordered. What I was planning to do from this point is taking the plans to Kinkos, scan them, then find a kit cutter to cut a kit from the file.
Am I on the right track?

That depends on how accurate the plans are, how accurately Kinkos can scan them and what file type they can save them as. They need to be in some type of vector file. If you are changing the scale then all the tabs and slots will need to be redrawn to match the material. Copies will need to be made for parts that need multiples. All parts will need to be nested to fit the material and machine that will be used to do the cutting. Unless you have the ability to prepare the cut files yourself it is not normally cost effective to cut one kit.
I recently spent one hour ($50) to nest, tab and optimize good Cad drawings for a simple flat plate foamie for a customer. Another job took four hours of cad time to prepare cut files for four simple parts starting from jepgs.
