Add your photos to a 3rd party host like Photobucket or Tumblr.  When you view each pic there is a little window on the right of the pic (in photobucket, anyway) with 4 different HTML options.  Copy the code in the window that's marked 'Image'.  Then just paste the code in your thread here.  Voila!

Alright, so the first picture is about a quarter of the way through the initial folding and gluing.

second picture is slightly farther into the process.


about halfway through^


all the way folded and glued, ive gone in and covered up all the tape and gaps with pieces of more orange cardstock.

I think I may see a few issues here vod. First off what kind of paper did you use? generally you need a good cardstock to work with the resin. Anything lighter and just applying the resin could rip your work apart. Also did you use a bonding method other than scotch tape? I've found that many types of fiberglass resin will eat through and dissolve scotch tape meaning your build may fall apart just after resin application.

It's 110lb card stock, and yes I used super glue, the tape was removed after the glue had set up
