I built a UE Scimitar once, but that was a couple of years ago or something (a few months after UE came out). It has since been decompiled and built into other things (a month or so after I built it). Sorry never took pics.

As for colors, yeah that is next to impossible to work with when you have limited supplies. That fact that you have the color-code as symmetrical as it is is amazing.

A megablocks carrier or destroyer, though, would provide losts of pieces with the same color for a build. Of course, that is not something anyone would want to decompile after building it.

VF-103 picked up the "Jolly Rogers" squadron name, but the black tailfin with skull and crossbones is gone, replaced by a low-visibility white (sorta) skull and crossbones on the gray (or whatever the color's technical name is, I forget offhand) that covers the entire plane.

They have at least one aircraft with black tailfin and skull, squadron commander's one IIRC

I used to make ships of out of lego too and then put a firecracker inside them and set up the video camera. It was good fun. Then I got some steel tubing from school. I made an aluminium plug with a hole to stick the fuse through and then made some projectiles out of turned aluminium. Very very good fun and boy did it shoot.

I remember building a lego Dralthi as a kid and I was so damn proud. Then I got in trouble for blowing pieces off it when I figured out how to build a gun from a technic kit (which is even more fun if you get a hold of those 'turtle' style kits for technic to build a motion triggered "rail gun")

That would be correct. Squadrons are allowed to have 1 full color bird. All the rest have to be low IR. Or what I call " That UGLY fucking puke gray that doesn't make it any less visible anyway."

Thats pretty darned cool. I remember i built a dragon once out of legos once, complete with folding wings, and about 2 foot long. It must have been from the same squadron, given the color schene it had.

Well, the Arrow picture doesn't need to be any bigger, but as it is, it's pretty blurry. There's no reason for a 1600x1200 picture to be 5 megs. You can easily jpeg it or resize that down below 250k.

yeah i know that was a while back but i just now caught it. but anyways. there's a very good reason if you're using a 7.2 megapixel camera :) the pictures really are about 1-5mb each. but at the time i didn't think about editing it a bit to make it smaller cuz i was a hurry to get it posted. but i'll remember that for the next time :)

That's not a good reason at all. :) I said, "There's no reason for a 1600x1200 picture to be 5 megs." That's entirely true. Even uncompressed on your camera, those pictures aren't going to be larger than about a megabyte. A 7 megapixel camera generates 3000x2000 pixel images, and those will max out about 3 megabytes. The point of what I said, however, is that even a 1600x1200 picture can be nicely jpg'd down to 400 kilobytes and retain its high quality. A 300 kilobyte 1280x960 image would be even better. It doesn't matter what size image your camera shoots.

ok. ok. i yield :p but i just realized my longbow pictures are scanned. the arrow picture though was a digital camera picture. i think i had posted clearer pictures of the longbow before but i don't remember... i'll have to see if i can't find them again
