This is very cool! I wonder what the purpose is for GOTO? Any if you could put a heavy weight in the base, it could be a clever paper weight!

Wouldn't be great if it even projected the night sky!

Nice find Ron! I've got to show this to some of my friends, at least one of which may actually build it.

I don't know about scaled up, but it seems the scale is too large to print on 8.5 X 11.0 paper.

Ir requires eight sheets of photo paper to print up all the parts.

Yeah, I see that....Is there anybody else besides me anal enough to even try this? I printed it out on 120 lb weight white paper. Just means it will not have a glossy finish. In order to fit on the 8.5 X 11 paper, I had to print it at 89% of full.

Anybody else attempting it?

TIPS:

Use a sharp hobby knife.

Cut on a "green" sewing type cutting board. Use a clear plastic straight edge...my hands jiggle too much without it.

Try to press the dotted line seams keeping in mind it might be better to hide the dotted lines.

I used a glue stick for the first 11 pieces. I applied the glue with the tip of a paring knife and used the tip of another knife to press the glued surfaces together as much as possible.

I'll try yellow wood glue for the other set of the first 11 pieces.

No clue why I'm trying to do this nor what I will do with it when finished, IF I finish.

I don't have time to do it myself. I'm trying to put all my time right now into getting a video dome projection system to work. It's even harder than I imagined, but I'm starting to get some promising results.

Anyway I'm rooting for to do this project, and I'm hoping to see reports of a successful completion soon!

Steve,

I am placing bets that you can get it done, and it will be great!
Can't wait for the pictures...

Ah, so you agree that I might be a tad anal, then? Oh well, must have a flaw I guess.

That said, I am my own worst critic. I'm thinking one of these might be redone. YOU guys tell me which one, see if we agree.

The Wizard is afraid to guess because he may guess wrong and it may make him look stupid....

Well, allrighty then......this makes it a whole lot easier....the Wizaed can't tell and Ron selects what I would consider the best to be the worst, SO....we'll leave 'em the way they are figuring noone will be able to tell when all is said and done.

Here is the latest image.....

That looks pretty amazing! What is the size of the assembled model (how tall is it, roughly)?
