    Hello all, I am new to the forum. I received prints for a Model 5 last week from Bob, although no plans to start anytime soon. Probably spend time getting prints digitized and parts built into Solidworks so that I can begin acquiring pieces and parts.

    I got this idea from alaska bearhawk ITOYA Original Art ProFolio 18x24 Black Photo Album Book with 48 Pages - Protective Binder with Plastic Sleeves

    I recommend finding a source of 1 inch mdf from a cabinet shop 4 foot by 8 foot for make forms. The 1 inch material works out better then the 3/4

    Same folio I use - works well for the record copy of plans. Copied all sheets for shop copy that is binder-clipped together and backed with some scrap Tolex (cloth-backed vinyl covering materials for amps, luggage, etc.).
