    I think its to grey and lacks a healthy contrast, especially for some text ( the dropdown menus for instance ) that is a little hard to read
    Im not fond of the font on the bottom , the blue one., I think it differs to much from your normal one.
    It would be nice to enlarge the 3d renderings you have done as they look very good.
    As you use the same background for the intro as the main site I think you should use just one file so you dont have to change html and swf to get to the real site. It will look more smooth.

    Your site is quite high ( 600 pixels ). About 40% are still on 800x600 monitors where the viewable area in the browser ( IE ) is just about 770x450. The banner does not help that either ( maybe you should get a banner killer script ).

    thanks for the comments i am currently trying to find out how to set the images as buttons so that when you click on them a pop up of a larger version of the image appears.

    I don't suppose you know how to do this please...

    thank you

    It depends on if you want them to show in a pop up window or shown in the Flash file as a bigger image?

    For a new window to open with a certain size without toolbars and such you would use some javascript on your button...like.....

    on(release){
    getUrl("javascript:window.open('http://www.mysite.com/image1.html','newwindow','width=420,height=420,top =0,left=0'); void(0);")
    }

    (there should be no space between java and script)

    And check out the popup script generator at www.flash-db.com/PopUp
    ..for more advanced versions

    I just have one thing to add boost the frame rate your animations are way slow. It will also make the animation much smoother. I use 30 - 40 FPS. Other then that I agree that it is too grey and bland spice it up with some tasteful colors and textures.

    I didn't see the main site, I must have not seen the enter button, the intro, the intro seemed to disappear and doesn't fade out like it fades in,
    I was like what happened!!!!
