Hmm, Google Language tools. I'm going to have to use that in the future. Thanks for the translation TeamTEOR. Not to hard ta understand now.

Wass up Karrde, must have been cool to see the Star Wars exhibit in Toledo. If you canít find your photos do a quick Google search for Millennium Falcon photos. Lots of good reference photos out there.
Good luck on your interview. Are you sure you want a job? It will cut into your building and flying time

I know from glide tests that the CG will stay the same whether the wings are closed or in "attack position". Someone would just have to come up with a light single servo layout to open and close the wings. The thin elevons on the upper wing could maybe over hang the lower one for control in the closed position. Donít think it would be very noticeable.

I remember watching that show as a kid. I dug that ship too. Not sure on the sub but here's a link to a site with lots of 3-views from the show.

StarBlazers 3-views

Wilky, I would say you have a very good chance of getting that version of the ship fly. Just build a quick mock up with some blue core and toss away.
this is a nice drawing below of the ship(missing the wings tho).

I have just found the sweetest Millennium Falcon BLue print! Man I wish I had this before building mine. It would have made designing the parts sooo much easier! The site that has it builds studio replicas for sale. Some very nice work. You have got to take a look at the site and the Pdf below.

hey GO-RC

it would look awesome if you got some blue cathode lights to imbed in your falcon, im not sure how much weight it would add.

Ill be starting a Tie fighter here in the next few days, i just need some free time.

That could be cool. We have talked about trying to light the engine along the back but weight in the rear is a big concern.

Couple good links on the Tie fighter in the first few posts of this thread. Could give you some ideas.

good flying

Aliens Dropships

Does anyone have a good three view of the Dropship (UD-4L) with wings extended from the Movie ALIENS?

Bored to death in Iraq, and considering something to pass the time.

Thanks.

Sir, here is a link to plans in different file types: http://www.3dcadbrowser.com/preview.aspx?ModelCode=9764
You should be able to do quite a bit with a CAD file.

Thank you for all that you do!
