One and all,

 

Appreciate your comments and interest. Target date is still end of December/early January. When it's ready, I will be providing a series of links that will make your purchase as easy as possible. At the present time, I'm researching another printer in order to provide as wide a spread of recommendations as I can. After the ebook becomes available...assuming y'all like it...I'd encourage you to post comments and reviews. Also, recommend the ebook to other modelers who might not be aware of its existence.

Are you still soliciting comments & discussion on content here? I use a couple of techniques that seem to work with the ALPS, but often sense that there's gotta be a more efficient way to do it.

Hey Bob,

 

Sure. Send'em on. Note that the Alps printer will not be discussed in my ebook due to its lack of availability, nor will laser printers. It'll be interesting to see if your techniques will convert to inkjets in a more efficient way.
