    I've been drawing datasheets of my kitbashes since forever in various forms, from posters to a tech manual. So lately I've been fiddling with the kind of 11x17 packs that Jackill, Tom Sasser, Strategic Design, Starship Dynamics, et al, have done.
    Here's my USS Soryu thru-deck cruiser to start with:

    Note the copyrights please. These are all 11x17 at 200 DPI. High enough res to print for yourselves if you like, but not quite good enough for some unsavory soul to run off and sell for their own profit. I hope :).

    I'm seeing errors now that I finally posted them. :lol:

    And it probably would have made sense to put dimensions on the size comparison sheets.

    Anyone else having issues with the images loading in the board? I can right click to open them but they just won't load otherwise.

    Great work on these!

    I think we once figured out that it's because my host site isn't a "secure" site - it's "http" rather than "https." Oh well, I ain't changin' hosts at this point in my life. :)

    @ashleytinger
    If your browser has enabled https-only mode then it will block the images on trekbbs because the image links are http while trekbbs is https.

    @Forbin - I think your host does support https. When going to https of inpayne.com it says it still needs to be configured.

    As someone who regularly visits your site, these new images are awesome, always glad to see more of your work!

    I can see them only through my phone weirdly enough, not my PC, despite using Firefox on both.

    @Forbin: I can see a place for several of these designs in John Concagh's "Edge of Midnight" fanfic-as-history-books project.

    Those are killer, dude. Awesome stuff! I still flip through my copy of your Oakland Naval Yards book from time to time.

    Thank you sir, glad somebody has my bathroom reader ;).
    All the time it's been for sale I only sold 100 copies. Jackill told me he put himself thru college selling his blueprints and books. I had hopes :rofl:.
