Q: What kind of paper and glue do I use?
A: 90-lb or 185-g paper, and regular white paper glue. Tacky glue also works, and dries faster, but may have more volume.
The pages (1700x2200), while larger than a page, turn out the same size on letter and A4 paper if automatically resized to printable area.
Q: Can it actually cycle a cartridge like one of tacome1942's models?
A: No. The moving parts do not replicate 100% functionality, they're just there for appearances.
Q: Can I attach accessories from other models to the rails?
A: Sure. The rails are pretty close to 1:1, so it's even possible to put real accessories on them (although this isn't recommended because of weight).
Q: I'm having trouble with X part.
A: Ask about it via comment or pm. Also let me know if there are any problems with the files.
Q: There are holes missing on the upper.
A: Here's the corrected page: (Black) (White)
Q: The right wall of the upper is backwards.
A: Here are the corrected pages.
