Is it having access to an X-ray or do you take 2 pictures one with the body on and one with it off and make the picture with the body transparent and put it over top?

the way i've done it is to take two pictures of the z. one of the cahssis and one of the body. in a graphics program, overlap the two and play around with the transparency of the top layer image. i used my scanner to get the side shots. i'm guessing wedginator used a camera for his, which is awsome.

Add a few more layers of the body pic.
Now you can erase different areas of the body on the different layers. This will allow you to have varying degrees of opacity. Using the airbrush or paintbrush to erase will give a nice feathered edge. And remember you can adjust the opacity on the layers AND the tools(airbrush/paintbrush).

Don't know about over there but over here they dont even allow nailclippers on board, what more to say about Mini-zs, those go into the cargo. They confiscate the clippers at the airport like maybe the staff there needs a good clipping or something. What am I gonna do? Clip the pilot's nosehair one at a time so he'll follow my instructions to goto Cuba?? Or maybe they're afraid I might use it to cut a hole in the skin of the aircraft or something.

Sheeesh.:mad: :rolleyes: STUPID


*They took my favortie nailclippers :( :mad:

I still get on board with a Leatherman in my carryon. Why? probably because I also have a yoyo and other toys in there.;)
and perhaps because I'm very charming (when I want to be).:p
