Thanks, upping the detail has been asked for and who am I to argueThe passenger pod is just fantastic, luv the detail!
There sure is a whole lot of talent on this board. This build is amazing. And beautiful!
You will get no argument from me and I thank ya!
And i'm back again like it or not :lol:Yeah! Your back, I missed you! Sorry, need to compose myself, this will get me motivated to finish mine. You just made my day! Fantastic work, but now I want to do the rescue pod. ;0)
I have to say that i like the rescue pod colours, just adds a certain something to an Eagle
Well back on this monster...
New update page on the site:
A few pics from said page...
So first, the side pods. I made to old two part mesh in to a single item, beefed up some of the internal structure and got to it with some tough resin in the printer.
When properly cured, this gear is stronger than ABS which will do nicely.
Next on the hit list is the fuel tank like things for the main engines.
The polygon punching program and me had a chat and this is what came out.
Snug fit, just the way one likes it.
As a bit of a time saver, I found a pretty decent mesh on CGTrader for an Eagle.
Took the beak, made some modifications to the mesh by giving it an internal skin,
Putting long tabs in one side and grooves in the other for assembly,
breaking it down in to three parts and building a cockpit as far as is possible.
And the printing did happen!
Just removed all the support material, yet to clean up proper.
One of the grilles for the cockpit back wall didn't print right,
I made the walls far too thin, been redone and i'll sort it.
The greeblies for the outside of the beak aren't studio accurate but there's a lot on this that isn't so onward!
And of course, the sticky tape assited dry fit look see.
And that's the story so far!
