    I was hoping you'd show up! :lol:

    I have to do top views of the Excelsior bashes next. DANG that's a difficult ship to figure out! I've got Jackill's orthos as a guide, with photos of the Lakota model, and some other folks' orthos for ref, and none of them agree!

    God help me when I get to the Galaxy class bashes. I have a top view of the Grand Alliance done and those windows almost killed me!!

    They are beautifully done. Are you using Illustrator or Corel?

    Forbin uses Corel.

    Sojo - you realize it took you just as much effort to be a wise ass as it would have to just answer 137's question politely.

    If John is offended by my blatant rudeness, let him tell me himself. Who appointed you the purveyor of Internet etiquette? Why do you get so offended by something that has absolutely no bearing on you whatsoever? The OP had a lot of stuff to it and, to be honest, I was quite understandably preoccupied with the pics he made. Why do you insist on playing at being a mod when you clearly (thank God) are not? This is not the first time you've shown the board your ass. Seriously, what IS your malfunction? And don't give me that lame bullshit about being a "pet peeve". Control freak issues much? Or are you one of those people so desperate to remain relevant that you invariably interject an opinion that nobody asked for? I'm genuinely curious.

    You know, you're right. It shouldn't have.

    As for the rest of your post, there's no good reply I can make to that. I've personally upset you and didn't mean to. I'm sorry.

    I like that, too. Although the name may need some work...

    The name is a pun. During WWII Curtiss designed a rear-engined, fighter called the XP-55 Ascender. The wings were at the rear, an it had a canard elevator at the front. The thing looked backwards to everybody, so it got the nickname "Ass-ender."
