  1. Outstanding! REALLY great job on this. Which files are these from? I have the Gambody model that I haven't printed yet. Thanks for sharing! Bill
  2. 😄 perhaps, just not quite as much....acne?
  3. Thanks Gregg. Here's a 96% completed pic in front of a computer monitor back drop. The backdrop really helps sell it and distract from the flaws...some.
  4. Still got a ways to go, but I think it's looking ok-ish.
  5. "You built that? You're braver than I thought!"🙂 Nice job on that hunk of junk. It would be interesting to see a smashup build with a star ship and this as it's saucer section. Might throw fans of both series in to convulsions, but would be pretty cool. Bill
  6. Not completely about space arrangement, but sort of. One of the things I started doing with instructions is taking cell pics of them and then viewing on a tablet instead of keeping the paper at my desk. It's neater, takes up less room and you can zoom in and out as needed. (important for older eyes like mine) I've been meaning to get a swivel arm tablet/computer monitor mount above my desk for it as well to help keep it out of the way when I don't need, but ready for access. Also good for keeping reference photos close by to look at. Nice looking are you got to work with for sure!
  7. I watched the new trailer and am a little less excited about it now. Not sure, just something about it is looking more over the top with some of the effects. Sure, I'll probably go see it because ANY chance to see real fighter jets on the big screen is worth checking out. But a lot of the scenes in the new trailer are just a little too hard to believe. (under the bridge, really had to do that cliche'?) Just my take.
  8. Isn't the Shuttle ET and the SLS main core the same diameter or am I mistaken?
  9. Just curious, has anyone looked at what it would take to maybe modify the 1/72 scale Space Shuttle Stack and create an SLS rocket? They share many of the same components but would still require quite a bit of scratch building. Could be a fun project for sure!
  10. Not to mention the builder didn't clear coat over the "VMA-513" decals on the second plan in. That doesn't look real AT ALL! 🤣
  11. Many years ago someone at our local club contest entered 2 Halo figures. They were really large, maybe 1/6 scale perhaps? I doubt they were 3D printed as this was maybe 10 years ago. I would guess resin kits. but they were really well done. I'll have to dig to see if I can find the pics I took of them.
  12. Now you should know, if you say disregard...the first thing I'm going to do....is regard! 😆
  13. Beautiful job! The tonal variation came out really really well.
  14. Glad to hear they came out well. If you get a chance, I'd love to see an image of them since I've made the change. It was a fairly minor change to some edge thicknesses to fit within print parameters but I have no idea how they'll turn out. Thanks, Bill
  15. Beautiful pics! Was this from 2 different days? Number 7 is in the 2 spot in some shots and in the 4 spot in others.
  16. Awesome job! Love the action of it. Beautiful.
  17. Hey guys, just a quick heads up for anyone that may be interested. I've managed to get those SRB aft skirts I'd offered a while back modified and they SHOULD be able to pass the print policies for Shapeways. I say should because Shapeways is notorious for changing it's limitations out of the blue. The few minor changes I had to make simply thickened up a few small areas and I don't think will effect the overall look of the parts. They are once again available on Shapeways site. If anyone has a chance to try them out let me know. I'd love to see how they print but won't have a chance to purchas
  18. Must be the CAG bird since it's so colorful. 😆
  19. J, those are awesome images of your model. It looks great! But yes, I would suggest possibly starting a different thread so there's no confusion about your offerings. Clearly you have a great eye for this stuff and I would hate for you miss out on your own rewards for your work. Keep up the great work. Bill
  20. Hi Don. Thanks. Yes this is the Trumpeter kit. It's really a nice kit. A great value for what all you get. Loaded with pretty decent photoetch.
  21. I'm sure that probably had quite a bit to do with it. Lindberg's brand isn't exactly golden. But this kit really is pretty nice considering. It's by no means a Tamiya, but it rates up there amongst the others in it's class and price range in my opinion. Bill
  22. Looks awesome so far! Great job on the engine. Looks like right out of the catalog. I built this kit quite a while back and yes, it's a great model. Kind of surprised it didn't seem to grab as much traction as I thought it would. People were Jonesing for a new police unit model and when it finally came out, the reception seemed a bit flat. Heck, the light bars alone are gold for law enforcement builders. Keep up the great work. Bill
  23. Looking GREAT! And I totally understand the "tent" dilemma. I've been trying to work on better ways to print to avoid this and it's an on going battle. Often what works for eliminating pits and zits, as I call them, on detail areas makes the prints not print well and vice-versa. It's the biggest set-back in 3D printing becoming a mainstream replacement for traditional in my opinion. We'll get there. Keep up the incredible work and keep us posted. Bill
  24. Awesome! But that's usually the case with your builds.
