I am afraid pal you have got waaaay too much time on your hands.   <g>

(I really enjoyed reading about your process. I too have a problem with
micromachine stuff all the same size.)

I am going to start to try and cast some ships on my own. I have gotten
off different newsgroups, sent off for catalogs, and ordered some stuff.
hope to get casting within the month. I plan on casting a medium sized
in the configuration I want, then using different techniques I learned
the book, to shrink and enlarge them. That way I have multiple sizes of
same looking ship (depends on my playing space you know). Then make a
of that size ship and make mods to it for different ships. I will let
everyone know how it turns out.
