NAVIGATION  TUTORIAL
WELCOME to the SciFi Dragon website.  I've tried to make the process of locating articles and moving around the
site as easy and flexible as possible. The following guide should tell you all you need to know about finding your way
around the site.
STEP-1:   PICK A TOPIC
Navigating the website begins with the SITE MENU on the HOME PAGE.  The site is broken into several  TOPICS
and all the articles within each topic are accessed by clicking the button with that topic's name.  The
TOPICS are:
  • ABOUT THE SCIFI DRAGON - an introduction to the website and some background info on its founder.
  • SITE NAVIGATION - You're there right now.  It's a short tutorial on moving around the website.
  • HOW TO - This topic contains articles on model building techniques, tips, hints, and general 'how to' information.
  • MILITARY WW-II - This topic contains photos of my military models (tanks, jeeps, armored cars, half-tracks, etc.)
  • SCI-FI - This topic contains photos of spaceships, ufo's, and other sci-fi subjects (excluding full scale prop replicas).
  • STAR TREK - Photos of STAR TREK related ships and full scale prop replicas that I've built.
  • SCI-FI PROP-REPLICAS - Photos of full scale original props & replicas of other sci-fi props I've built.
  • OTHER - The smallest topic at present. Basically photos of anything that doesn't fit any topic listed above.
  • CONTACT ME - Instructions for getting in touch with the Sci-Fi Dragon.  Submit comments, suggestions, etc...
  • COMMENTS / OPINIONS - My own comments on modeling related subjects + any submitted comments or suggestions.
  • LINKS TO GOOD STUFF -  Links to other sites where you can find modeling related supplies, tools, materials, etc...

A copy of the SITE MENU is shown below.  Select a TOPIC to view by clicking the appropriate button.   
Clicking the  
HOW TO,  MILITARY,  SCI-FI,  STAR TREK,  PROP REPLICAS,  and COMMENTS  topics takes
you to the
TITLE INDEX page for that topic - that INDEX lists the current articles WITHIN THAT TOPIC.

To identify & select INDIVIDUAL ARTICLES, click on a SUBJECT CATEGORY button below.
NOTE:  Most pages contain more than one article.  Once you've selected an article, you may have to
scroll down the page to locate it.
SUBJECT CATEGORIES
STEP-2:  CHANGING TOPICS
If you want to exit the topic you are currently viewing and select a different topic, you must return to the HOME PAGE.
That's easy - every page on the website has a HOME PAGE button located at the top of the page and another at the
very bottom of the page.  Click this button                                                   to return to the site's HOME PAGE .



STEP-3:  EXITING THE WEBSITE
There is no 'sign out' or 'log out' process for this site - to leave, simply close the browser page displaying the site.
STEP-4:  FINDING ARTICLES & MOVING WITHIN A TOPIC
The  ABOUT SciFi Dragon,  SITE NAVIGATION,  CONTACT ME,  and  LINKS to Good Stuff  topics are each
only one page long and therefore do not require an INDEX to guide you to their contents.
When you select
any other topic, you are taken to a  TITLE INDEX  which lists the individual articles within that
topic.   Most topics contain several pages and the INDEX takes you to go directly to the page for the article you select.
Most / many pages contain more than one article and you may have to scroll down a page to find the article you want.
Follow the instructions at the top of the TITLE INDEX page to access the topic content.

A sample of a  TITLE INDEX  page appears below:   Note that you can exit from this page by clicking the HOME
PAGE  button.
 To select an article from the list, just CLICK ON THE (BLUE) TITLE & you will go to the top of the
appropriate page.  IF the selected article has a
TITLE # greater than one (1), scroll down the page to find the article.
STEP-5: MOVING BETWEEN PAGES IN THE SITE
At the TOP LEFT of each articles page are two ways to EXIT THAT PAGE (also at the very bottom of the page):
  • HOME PAGE -  Click this button to leave the topic entirely and return to the HOME PAGE.
  • ARTICLES INDEX - Click this button to return to the TITLES INDEX for this topic.

Each articles page has two ways you can move to other pages
WITHIN THE TOPIC:
  • At the TOP RIGHT (and bottom) of each page are a  LAST PAGE  and  NEXT PAGE  button.  Click the LAST
    PAGE button to go back one page, or click the NEXT PAGE button to move forward one page.
  • The PAGE list (below the HOME PAGE.....NEXT PAGE buttons) lists the pages within the topic.  BLUE page
    numbers are active pages with articles - click on any page number to skip directly to that page.  BLACK page
    numbers (if any) are not active and cannot be accessed.

This is a sample  PAGE list - use these to skip from page to page within a topic.
PAGE:   1   2  3  4  5  6  7  8   9   10
That covers about all there is about accessing materials on this website and moving around here.  
Click the
HOME PAGE button below to exit this tutorial and return to the HOME PAGE.....
TITLE INDEX PAGE FEATURES:
To exit any TITLE INDEX page,  click the  HOME PAGE  button (top right  or at the very bottom of the page).
INSTRUCTIONS are provided at the top of every TITLE INDEX page. Follow them to bring up the article you want to view.
QUICK RETURN:
When you are on a page with multiple articles,  you can quickly return to the first article on that page by clicking
on the
TOP OF PAGE  button.   There is one  TOP OF PAGE  button located at the very bottom of each page, PLUS
a  smaller version of the button located  between each article  (on the right side of the page).
