  1. Thanks for this, Homer. Again, all very wonderful parts. I, however, already have a resin printer that I bought, in small part, to avoid the overhead of Shapeways. I'd much rather go direct through you either for the parts (which you've noted could unfortunately be some time/years away) or for purchase of the actual digital files. If you ever find yourself in a comfortable position of selling the files, I'd very much be interested. I understand the potential hesitancy going that route. I have some parts I've developed myself, and have been mulling over
  2. My goodness...those parts look amazing. Especially being able to capture all the textures on that aft bulkhead...::chef's kiss:: magnificent. Any possibility of these parts or stl files being made available for purchase? I have some 1/72 scale builds in my future some of these would look great on.
  3. I figured instead of starting a new post, probably best to keep this one alive. So around Xmas last year, I wound up getting a new resin 3D printer (Anycubic Mono X). The main driver to one was to make an attempt at coming up with custom shuttle pieces, inspired partly by what I saw others on this forum doing. The other part was, despite the wonderful pieces that are available on shapeways, to avoid the substantial overhead that comes with using them. Below are several photos of the parts I've designed and printed to this point. Most some are just trial pieces, with some fine tuning requir
  4. This build actually precedes my Revell STS-41D model, which I also just posted in this forum. This particular model was built during the late Spring/Summer of 2020. HI there everyone. I wanted to post this record of my first real build in order to not only document it for general safekeeping, but also to share my experience with everyone else in this forum. This really is a hobby where everyone can get better by learning from one another. I spent many hours just pouring over all the previous posts from the past several years. Both the lessons learned and, primarily the
  5. Photos of my just completed (Minus display stand) Revell 1:144 model of Discovery on her maiden flight, STS-41D. Build time was approx 6-months, on and off. Display stand will be forth coming in the next couple weeks. Since Discovery is my favorite orbiter, I wanted to do a model of her with an interesting payload configuration. Turns out her maiden flight was quite the unique layout, especially with the OAST-1 solar array experiment. Custom detailed payload bay with OAST-1 Solar array deployed,
  6. Following... I had the very same idea, subsequent dilemma (Transport wings no longer available) and very similar questions about the Anigrand model. I found very little information online about the quality or build experience of the Anigrand 747, so I've held off on committing to purchasing one. Granted this particular build is way down on my to-build list, so I'm not in any rush. But thanks for posting the question. Will be following intently.
  7. Bill, You sound like you're in the exact same position as me (except the whole "having worked on the actual shuttle" thing - EXTREMELY jealous). Thanks for tee-ing up this particular post - I was also wondering about the aft skirts. I do have Bill's SRB nose cones / separation motors & Ice/Frost ramps. But about three weeks ago I started the same process - collect as many after-market parts as possible so that I was "full-kit" prior to starting my builds. This stay-at-home thing sparked the interest into getting (back) into the hobby. I'm starting with a 1/144 build
