I have noticed that the JU52 prints at 94%. I tried resetting the margins on the printer but still does not print at 100% Was this by design? Is there something I can do to get full scale? Thanks, John

I just printed the winter camo version out last night. I noticed that 94% thing too, but assumed it was partly becuase I was using a old HP 710 printer at home. It doesnt have many print options. I was pretty sure there were more options with the new printer we have at work that would let you reset the margins and print at 100 % without loosing any edges. I will check it out tomorrow.

Too bad I don't have the intestinal fortitute to print all 9 pages at work..they have such a nice printer there!

Ok, the printer here at work is a brand new HP Deskjet 5740. It has an option for boarderless printing. I assume this would allow printing the JU52 at 100%, but I'm not sure, as I havent actually tried it out.

It does sound like some kind of printer set up issue. Is there a print to page setting on your printers? The files are set up to have a safe zone on the edges of about a 1/4" so it seems your printers are reading that as part of the image. I hope you can get it to work somehow. I'm at a loss as to how to solve the problem.

Yep, its a printer-software problem. At least thats how I see it. The old HP710 I use at home simply doesnt have the options to let me print the Ju52 out at 100%.

No worries...I have printed it out at 94% and started the cutting. I'm not going to quibble over 6%...not when this model looks this good!

I do have a question about the '52. Do you cut out holes for the wings in the fuselage? The instructions don't say to. I'm assuming the "box" fits snuggly enough inside that you can glue it to the area where the wings will attach. Is that right?

Hi Tim, You are right. The wings are glued up against the fuselage. The box acts as a support for the wings. Chauncy really did an outstanding job on this model.

I don't pay any attention to the % printed out. So long as each sheet's printed at the same scale, I don't care. (It might matter if you want more than one model to be at the same scale.)

I'm doing the Crete version in regular size - I am stunned by the quality of the way it goes together. I am going to do the Spanish CW version next - IN LARGE :D
