I have been watching Gort build his kit master.........and well if copying is a compliment the higest one goes out to him!! I have a vesion I built with the black markings but I would like one wit the orange markings so I started another.
Well I am no master but I will tell you if your not a making a kit, the speeder is an excercise in making templates and cutting styrene.Although it looks easy this one is my 3rd attempt on the secnd building!! I went through the same thing with my finished model........I must take crappy notes!!!
One of the differences in this model will be I am trying to vacuum form the large turbines that are between the boxes on the hull.In my first one they were created out of resin and very heavy sitting on the hull.This time I would like to get away with just having the culminating tips of the lasers cast in resin.
Another area I would like to make better on this attempt is the heat sink assembly.Gort has done a fantastic job nailing this area.From his hard work I can benefit with the great pictures he has posted and am thankful for this!! My first speeder in this area was to wide to the point that it would not allow me to have the lower air brakes be the correct size! I am not a HUGE stickler but WRONG IS WRONG in glaring construction errors.
Here is what I have so far on my orange version I am going to light this one also but use Fiber Optics this time!Again Big Up to Gort! These are the benefits of working behind a more skilled builder and learning!!
