Wow, that pic came out kind of nasty. Humm, maybe it was the resizing?

It's the resizing Mike. At odd multiples of zoom, aliasing appers rather nastily. That's why I always do my image editing in even multiples 25% 50% 100%..etc...
I don't think the images do the model justice, nice work!

Looks like they are resized to 500 pixels wide. If you "presize" you can avoid the "resize" artifacts ;)

Yeah no more odd multiples. Looks much better.

Indeed, the pics are auto-resized to 500 pixels to limit the width of the posts. However, it's done with a simple HTML "width" tag, so if you simply right-click an image and select "view image" or "open image" you should see the original full-size image.

But as Habu2 remarked, presizing the image to 500 pixels wide should ensure that it is displayed nicely.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but it's mainly intended to improve readability of the forum.

Well, I don't have the ability to resize yet, but the ones I posted to ARC came out ok. Dam, how samll does it have to be?

Thanks for the resize though, H-2

Yeah, ARC doesn't resize, and they have the same problem we used to have where large pics forced you to scroll L/R to read the text for the entire thread.

Mike, what OS are you using? You can crop and resize in MS Photo Editor...

Why Raptor no photoshop?
Do you run WinXP? If so, you got any Powertoys? There's a Powertoy tool that allows you to resize any image with the right-click of a mouse.
Check it:

Nice build. I must say that this is one of the best models that I have seen in a long time. While the directions way understate the amount of time you spent making the model. The pieces are formed and fit with an amazing amount of precision and this turned out to be a beautiful model that is closer to the real thing.
