You have got to be kidding,the 1/48th and the 1/72 scale size for the
Eagle should be just enough.

Default Back again!

Hi! ... It's been a while, but I've finally got back to making a final run at finishing a full 44" Eagle!!

The last time I posted I was moving house/job and then the 3D printer I had wouldn't cope with the larger sections without warping!!

I've now managed to print the larger sections on a new 3D printer (Wanhao Duplicator i3) and it's looking really good

I'll keep you updated and will post pictures soon.

Default Update of 44"

Hi - I promised some pics and here they are ...

This model has been two years in the making with 100's of revisions!! I've resorted to bolting much of it together (more realistic anyway!) ... the command module is also finished with detailed cockpit and sliding doors etc..

The landing pods have spring suspension and tuck into the pods in flight mode.

Not long now before it's finally finished!

Default Almost there!

Finally got the landing pods printed and one of the walkways ... Here's the (almost) complete 44" 3D printed model. It weighs around 2.5kg in total ..

That is really cool and here I built mine from scratch like a sucker. Would love to see some photos of a part being printed.

This looks great! How much clean-up do the parts require after printing? I still have the 37inch CM you sent me a long time ago, but it took me an awful long time to smooth it so that the styrations wouldn't show.

Hi! Long time!! ... the larger version shows more detail and relative smoothness due to its size, but it will still need work to get it very smooth. There are several ways of doing this with primers and/or specialized resins such as 'smooth-on'
