    I've made some improvements to my scripts. Stitched images will hopefully not appear skewed anymore. It was a subtle issue but still drove me crazy enough to want to fix it. Hasegawa 65850 - 1/72 VF-31F Siegfried Kaname Buccaneer Color Macross Delta the Movie
  2. I think it's rather cool they are doing a Myung figure. If I didn't already have an eggplane YF-19, I'd probably go for it...but since I do.. and since I'm worse at painting figures than I am at the aircraft...lol

    Yep, they've got a lot of great info. (For anyone who doesn't have the link ,it's Scalemates, scale modeling database | stash manager). Maybe at some point I'll figure out how to add to the info on Scalemates (e.g. box sides, instructions, etc.). I'm scanning everything for more of a preservation aspect. Scanner is calibrated to correct colors and I've got these at high res (including decals sheets at 2400 dpi). I started off with just decals but decided I might as well scan boxes, instructions, etc. while I'm at it because I apparently like having no free time :). If anyone needs a highe
  5. Shhh, don't ruin it for me, I haven't gotten that far into the new podcast yet! I wonder what it could be about! hehe.

  9. Well, still glad to see it returning even with the surcharge. Hopefully that will go away before long. Thanks for the info!
  10. I saw that we have a decal library, so I figured I'd start a box art library thread. Someone let me know if I missed one that already exists. I'm in the process of scanning my kits/decals/instructions so if anyone needs higher res images that have been color calibrated let me know. I also have scans of the side of the boxes. I'm only going at a rate of about 1 scan per week at the moment, so...this could take a while, :D. If you spot any errors, let me know, the process for merging scans is not perfect and although I try to look for artifacts and fix them I don't always see them. Box
  11. I didn't score them off Mandrake but I might have them laying around. The odd thing is my notes say that is MC-10-650 for "Wave Macross Model Support System Decals 2" yet your picture is MC-17-650. I might have a different set. I've started scanning my kits and decal sets, shoot me a message if you want me to try to dig it up a take a good scan.
  12. Working in Windows, I don't have time to setup a Linux box at home, although I've been using Linux since 1993 so I'm one of the old timers on it, lol. So no bash for me unless I setup Mingw or something similar. Batch and Powershell seem to be working well for me so far. The merging script it just a batch script that I edit the filenames in each time, could easily be converted to take them as command line args. My powershell script is one I use to convert all tifs in a directory to have LZW compression so that I can get the decal scans down in side and not have 0.5 - 1 Gig per scan, lol.
  13. I've got a 1 year old in the house, I don't usually get time to stitch images together, lol. I think I discovered what you just said above. I've started putting manga, etc. inside the box to keep it flat on the scanner. That seems to help the images stitch together automatically better. Although I still had 1 or 2 where I needed to go in and manually futz with it some. Hugin seems to not be happy sometimes if it needs to stretch the image, so I think I need to put more effort into making sure the box is completely flat and not scan near the edge where it is riding up on the lip of the sca
