NSF 2016 Calendar now available!

Well this year's flown by, as confirmed by the latest NSF calendar! Great work by all here, not least Bob for creating and Nathan for being our own corner of Hollywood with the renders - and the quality/feel of this one is even better than the 2015 calendar that I really loved (and is on the wall still, including at friends/family houses, which always makes me smile).

I've got my hands on a few already - per the photo below, with the PS4 used for scale. ;D

Edit/Lar: another version is available with a Sunday through Saturday layout, thanks to grythumn:

That looks really good! :)

But Chris, what are you doing playing GTA V, when you should be writing articles! ;D

I had some flexibility on the calendar bottom with lulu. Not enough to move the credits off the images, but I could change the week format and add a few dates of interest.

I can find no fault in your reasoning ... ;D

So-Bad-Its-Good Pun Police have been called!  Maybe if it had come out a little later, Los Santos would've had a version of a certain rocket company near the airport...

Hopefully my switch last year to 4K resolution for the renders should've helped sort out any printing resolution issues!

They've come our really, really well. I just don't know how to take a photo on my iPotato that doesn't look like a screenshot from a Commodore 64 ;D

Bummer about that for us "left-of-the-pond" types.
Mon-Sun just doesn't work for me. :(
TL;DR
Keep your posts short if you want them to be read.

It'll take me 30-60 minutes to redo the calendar with another layout, and you're the first person to ask.

[0]It remembered the special days, at least. Don't know why you can't clone a project.

Apparently I've been spelling that wrong all of my life. :( Thanks for pointing it out. I've fixed the masters, so any new copies will have the corrected spelling.

And if anyone else was wondering about curious vs curiosity, apparently it's because it's an Old French loanword:

I feel like I need to post because of the nature of what i just did.

I did something I never thought that I would do......I bought a calendar!

In my 34 years of life...I have never bought a calendar because I always get about 10-20 each year from church groups to school groups to banks.

But this one......this one is mine!!!!  Bruhahahahahah  ;D

Alright Chris.....time to expand the site to include a store!  With all the members here...we could create enough unique can't find anywhere else merchandise to make all of us very, very poor.....  ;)

My calendar is on order, will be proudly displayed next to a 1/72 Saturn V and Shuttle.
I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.
