    Hi Randall,

    there are several equally good ways to go, depending on skills and availabale materials.

    I've built Fuller 2 and Bygrave Replicas which look and work perfectly.(+several minifuller protypes with cos scales etc) Only basic craft skills and each made from scrap plastic tubes and material costing virtually  nothing. I have very little maths and rely on perfect computer genetrated scales from others. These are edited in PDF in Photoshop elements 7 and printed on ordinary HP ink jet printer/ photo paper to best quality.

    I wrote up the build intructions as word documnets and they are on the list. Let me know if you need new ones sent.

    They take time, patience and repeated trial and error to get the fittings perfect.

    Good look, best wishes
