    First off I want to say I've seen some of the best customs here on this site and I wanted to share one of my projects here, The NEMESIS Command Center(the best part is I'm going to put up pics for you to make it yourself). but here's Some W.I.P. pics to wet your appetite while I fix some of the images for everyone to print their own.

    Mississippi Transformers Collectors Club | Facebook

    I'll have all the pics up to make your own this week with complete directions.

    I will be building Iacon/ark Autobot Playset for you to use as well.

    The only reason for the facebook link is so I do not have to resize these pics.

    Wow, that's some piece of work! There are one or two corners that look like they could use a little extra support to be on the safe side, but as long as the base material's stiff enough (and given that you've got Deluxe class figs on the top floor, I assume it is), it shouldn't be an issue.
    So what's the idea, here - print the files out and laminate them onto stiff card? I'm a fan of printable model sets; pity I can't get my printer to run on this computer. :p

    I assembled it on cardstock, but I do rec using foamcore to make the walls sturdy enough to hold the weight of your figures. ( I put together the prototype to see if there were going to be image issues, such as the computer screens). I'm working right now on the updated walls so anyone can print them out.

    I should have everything up by this weekend, once all the pieces are up I'll get started on the AUTOBOT IACON/ARK Command Center. I'll also post some "ADD ON" Pieces once both projects are completed.

    In case you hadn't noticed, if you wait a bit, it can be owned by you. He's gonna be posting the parts so they can be printed out.

    I did notice and haven't closed this window just to keep the tread up so I can check back in a couple days to see if it's up yet.

    I don't know if you intend to do this or not but if you want more people to use this you need to make it more user friendly.

    Some tips to accomplish this:

    *Make each page separate. Currently your images are big and you say to use MS Paint to print it over multiple pages. You should manually do this for ease of use. Make each piece its own page/file preferably with text indicating what section it belongs to.

    *Name the pictures the correct name. When I clicked Download High Rez version I was given a string of numbers I didn't care about. You should have the file name be the piece name. I downloaded them twice, the second time I manually changed its name to the corresponding piece.

    *Have clearer instructions. During my second download sprint I manually copied into a text document the instructions you posted with each piece. Most won't bother with that and will become frustrated with this and give up. It would be helpful if each picture contained the instructions on them. At the very least have each picture label itself visually and an instruction document textually indicate what you have to do.

    *Create one file. It's a pain in the tookus to manually download all the files. Try to create a PDF of them. At the very least make a single .zip file.



    Like I said, I don't know if you were already planning on doing any of the above but if you want more people to use your product you have to make it as user friendly as possible. So I am trying to help. (Wow that sounded so stuck up...)


    Oh, I guess I could direct you to my sig where I have a link to papercraft energon cubes I made if you want to accentuate the diorama.

    Since most people use print shops I don't think that it'll be an issue, but I will take the suggestion under advisement. ( The directions are actually one of the pictures in the folder), And now all pieces are up to build your own, I hope you all enjoy building this for your collections. Coming Soon......The IACON/ARK Autobot Command Center.

    Thanks again for doing this. :thumbs2: 

    I hope I downloaded the pieces correctly, they were 720px × 533px in size. Is that right?
