RE: Help Needed... Lego 777 Tail Design

I can take any PIA tail photo and fit it within your template shown at the top. However, the photos on a.net are usually about 1024x768 in size, which means they are quite jagged when enlarged that much.

If you don't mind them being quite jagged, I can do a few for you.
