Steamboat PDF

I've made a PDF of the sheets of cutout shapes needed to make the steamboat model I've been talking about. At the moment it has no instructions or pictures of the finished boat - but I'd be grateful for a couple of volunteers who'd be willing to take a look at it as-is and see if it prints out OK and makes sense. Basically, there's a flat deck plan plus bits to build up a cabin deck, engine room, and paddle wheel housings, a funnel, a wheelhouse, and rails with lifebelts (print these last on acetate for best results). I think that the page is set up as letter size paper, but it may be A4 - for various reasons this has been printed in PDF creator then assembled in Acrobat.

Anyway, I don't want this to go on line generally until I release FF X, it will then be a free download. If you you want to have a play and can agree not to pass on the PDF to anyone else let me have contact details and I'll mail it to you, it's about 1mb at present.
