    Alleys of Knowhere - Guardians of the Galaxy (WIP)

    3D printed the roof. Came out quite nice. Some finishing is required of course.

    3D Printer question

    I totally agree to what @basementdweller wrote. For me resolution/quality trups the price. I'd rather pay more for a prints with wich I have less post-processing on my hands, than save a few bucks and have deal with mediocre prints. Next on the checklist would be print size, basically for the...

    Alleys of Knowhere - Guardians of the Galaxy (WIP)

    Hi all, I am planning of building a diorama of the alley in Knowhere in Guardians of the Galaxy in which Drax and Ronan are fighting (about 50 minutes into the film) The Diorama will eventually be in 1/35 scale and I might borrow some techniques from @joeydee's excellent Mr. Kim's Boat thread...

    Indiana Jones Flying Wing

    Here is a scaled down test print - just a proof of concept (to myself ;)) The gap in the middle is from warping during cooling. Should be less in the larger scale, otherwise I will have to print it a bit larger and sand it down.

    Indiana Jones Flying Wing

    I could't find any reliable measurements of the flying wing yet, but my guess is, that the wingspan must have been around 23 meters / 75 ft that would make the mode around 48 cm / 19 in or 72 cm / 28 in respectively. (alle measurements inculde some rounding & conversion margins - your...

    Indiana Jones Flying Wing

    Hey all, this is the very first peak at my latest project. The Flying wing from Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark. Since there are very few Models available, I will do it all in 3D and 3D-Print it. I am aiming for something around 1/48 to 1/32 scale. Files will be free to download one done...

    Animatronic MPC/ERTL Snowspeeder

    Thank you all for the great feedback. The 3d printed hinges are a little weak/too loose and that's why the Snowspeeder wobbles. It might go away once all the weight of the rest is added, otherwise I will have to redo the hinges. I'll have to look into that.

    Animatronic MPC/ERTL Snowspeeder

    Did some work on the pilot & gunner. I added the straps and the ankle band using heat shrink tubing. Then I made a pattern for the vest which I cut out of gaffer's tape. Added the crests on the helmets and mounted the heads one looking to the left, the other one looking slightly up and...

    Animatronic MPC/ERTL Snowspeeder

    Hi all, on we go: I painted the air brakes and and the wells red and while waiting for the paint to dry, I cut a slot in a PVC foam board and mounted a rail with a sled beneath it. It's made from meccano parts and will allow the Snowspeeder to move forwards and backwards. Then I 3d-printed...

    Animatronic MPC/ERTL Snowspeeder

    Hi all, I've always liked the MPC Snowspeeder, one because it's quite big and easy to detail, second it's movable flaps and air brakes make it easy to present it in a dynamic flying pose. This is the third time over the last 20 or so years I am building this one and with the advances is...
