    PART III: 3D Models and 1/6th and 1/4 Scale Kits!

    I did a LOT of work over the holiday weekend on the 1/6th and 1/4 scale kits which meant a LOT of time sitting at the computer. As much as I enjoy it... I hate it because it cuts into actual time working at the shop... oh well...

    Anywho... the 1/4 Scale Nav Computer is almost ready for prime time! I will then scale the Nav Com down to 1/6th! This first test kit will be headed to Fuzzual
    IMG_20181222_113923_zpsu974valb.jpg

    Lots of panels... but you're also looking at ALL the 1/4 scale cockpit parts as well!

    Izzy is also working at getting these 3D models ready to go as well! Flight Yoke
    IMG_20181225_125826_zpsagzefdit.jpg

    That's a lot of material to remove!
    IMG_20181225_130425_zpsiky3zvo1.jpg

    DEF sanding involved to smooth all the edges - but what a beautiful piece of work! WELL DONE, IZZY!
    IMG_20181225_130432_zpswxkep2pc.jpg

    1st coat of primer usually highlights all the areas I missed sanding the first go around
    IMG_20181225_131955_zpsetb5y5qh.jpg

    That thing is gorgeous!
    IMG_20181225_132001_zps27blhlhz.jpg

    The details are amazing!

    IMG_20181225_132034_zps5jd2xmq3.jpg

    Izzy also printed these 1:1 scale canopy beam greeblies! The real world item is called a "Teleflex Harness Inertia Reel"
    IMG_20181225_132124_zpsktsjtpd4.jpg

    LOVE IT! I can't wait to get these mounted
    IMG_20181225_132130_zps0fc9jtxs.jpg

    And a 1/4 scale version!

    Hi Gang,

    I have been so busy I forgot to post the other updates... SHAME ON ME!

    Part IV - The Canopy

    I love it when styrene doesn't want to play with others
    IMG_20181222_104247_zpskxuy6bmb.jpg

    Lots of sanding
    IMG_20181222_104255_zpszfrdqazp.jpg

    I really need to fill in those small gaps between the window trim and the skin
    IMG_20181222_110510_zpsytggnzob.jpg

    IMG_20181222_110516_zpsdtrjowtz.jpg

    Happy New Year everybody! We made it through another year!

    I want to take the time to thank everyone for the continued support these past 6.5 years. You guys/gals are awesome and I appreciate the kindness you all have shown. To those we lost, may we remember them with honor and through wonderful stories.

    I hope everyone has a safe and awesome 2019!

    Hi Gang,

    Time for that "End of the Weekend Update"... In 5 Parts!

    Part I: The Canopy

    I am amazed at how much work continues on this part! Sanding, filling, sanding, filling... you know the drill! ;)
    IMG_20181230_102423_zpsupnnigre.jpg

    IMG_20181230_102430_zpsht3tie77.jpg

    Vertical beams saw more attention
    IMG_20181230_113455_zpsasqdgbnv.jpg

    IMG_20181230_113502_zpsgzukmzzs.jpg

    IMG_20181230_113513_zpsmcnctpu9.jpg

    Another coat of primer
    IMG_20181230_142714_zpspretcxjv.jpg

    All these little gaps keep popping up
    IMG_20181230_142723_zps6wmm0h95.jpg

    Then I saw all these little areas of attention
    IMG_20181230_143818_zpsaq7yvoqr.jpg

    Then I laughed... I completely missed filling this entire side of this beam
    IMG_20181230_143822_zpso7nqohft.jpg

    IMG_20181230_143827_zps5c3jphk8.jpg

    After 2 coats more coats of primer and hours of sanding... its DEF worth the time and effort! Almost there

    IMG_20190101_142754_zpseqdwljat.jpg

    Wish you guys/gals could see this up close!

    Hey J! Happy New Year! Let's hope 2019 brings us all good fortune and happiness.

    Thanks so much! Izzy is making me look bad with all his continued hard work. His 3D models are only going to compliment what I'm doing and DEF help make me look good. I can't wait to see how these kits turn out once we get the ALPS Printer working!

    Hi Gang,

    Part II: Little Details

    My adventures with the 1/4 and 1/6 scale greeblies continue
    IMG_20181230_113524_zpsqsujkvog.jpg

    I might have to redesign this greeblie - the edges didn't align very well
    IMG_20181230_113531_zps5oiifkwo.jpg

    New Throttle Housing and other 1/6th greeblies headed to Izzy
    IMG_20181230_135558_zpsmi9xxywe.jpg

    Upper console detail
    IMG_20181230_135630_zps950afwln.jpg

    2 main button pads for the main console
    IMG_20181230_135643_zpsthngpr46.jpg

    Smaller button pad
    IMG_20181230_135809_zps0zmoveap.jpg

    A package arrived for me in the mail... All of Izzy's 3D models to include these AWESOME and 1/4 scale Dome Panel Lights!
    IMG_20181230_110847_zpsgld20lv4.jpg

    Lens
    IMG_20181230_110921_zps8zlhcoj0.jpg

    These are just test pieces but...
    IMG_20181230_111118_zpskxb4f9xk.jpg

    Painted the bezel silver
    IMG_20181230_142749_zpssn7c9zea.jpg

    IMG_20181230_142755_zpsp6upntaq.jpg

    YES... the interior side of the lens shows the "Fresnel" effect! SO COOL!

    Part III - Fiberglass and Corridor Ring

    Back to the fiberglass body! I noticed a few areas of concern
    IMG_20190101_092302_zpshzcsypao.jpg

    Dry fiberglass - not good
    IMG_20190101_092305_zpskwbffkrw.jpg

    I broke out some resin and covered the dry areas and filled in any other areas of concern
    IMG_20190101_093137_zpsqneshnrj.jpg

    IMG_20190101_093159_zps0kctpgw4.jpg

    Cut some styrene pieces
    IMG_20190101_123601_zpslmcwatbm.jpg

    Time to add more layers to the outer & inner surfaces of the corridor ring
    IMG_20190101_123606_zpsxbw9zvua.jpg

    IMG_20190101_124309_zpsi5mjka6t.jpg

    IMG_20190101_124318_zpsiodcynug.jpg

    And of course more filler...
    IMG_20190101_132602_zpsnhqn8uez.jpg

    IMG_20190101_132605_zps0buugele.jpg

    Honestly... this process never seems to end!
    IMG_20190101_132611_zpsugtspbxt.jpg

    Another area of concern is how to mount the fiberglass halves to the main body - I designed and laser cut these beams
    IMG_20190101_134249_zpsn7adgewj.jpg

    They will essentially mount here
    IMG_20190101_134310_zps6xijf46d.jpg

    The idea, if it works, after adhering the beams in place I will use flat head screws and simply screw the fiberglass to the beams
    IMG_20190101_134317_zps8m9arfmi.jpg

    I have to remove some of the reflective HVAC tape

    Part IV: The Cockpit Entrance Wall

    I then laser cut these other cross beams and adhere into place
    IMG_20190101_111452_zpsf9ryfxuq.jpg

    IMG_20190101_111456_zpsdkjgblm4.jpg

    I then began to remove material from the wall

    IMG_20190101_111651_zpsth2hhthu.jpg

    Repeated the process down below
    IMG_20190101_120155_zps3fhnsfbl.jpg

    What the heck is this thing for?
    IMG_20190101_120201_zpsgspmgrx6.jpg

    Hi Gang,

    Its that time again!

    Part V: The Entrance Wall Cont'd

    Now that I cut holes into the entrance wall it makes sense to make something to fill those holes? ;)
    IMG_20190101_091411_zpszrf8lua2.jpg

    I laser cut these "hooks"
    IMG_20190101_100449_zpsduhu98cj.jpg

    Mounted to the interior side of the maintenance panel
    IMG_20190101_100504_zpscdk88qez.jpg

    IMG_20190101_111436_zpskhe7kfmn.jpg

    IMG_20190101_111443_zpsuam7ldk4.jpg

    The hooks slip through the openings and simply "latch" to the cross beams

    And this...

    Is where we "were"
    IMG_20190101_144448_zps8aypsrsv.jpg

    This weekend's update... On the Way!

    Hi Gang...

    What the heck... the internet is working, Photobucket hasn't crashed and I have time... Let's get this weekend's activities posted! Part I of VI!

    Part I: The Cockpit Nose

    I spent a LOT of time trying to get the floor of the nose smooth
    IMG_20190105_093158_zpszski1wep.jpg

    IMG_20190105_093205_zpsg16ae8wt.jpg

    I spent a LOT of this weekend sanding...

    IMG_20190105_104549_zpsfwebyh5s.jpg

    IMG_20190105_104554_zpssbkhduvi.jpg

    I reinforced the underside of the nose - its ugly but it worked! ;)
    IMG_20190105_120840_zpsupq9forw.jpg

    IMG_20190105_120848_zpswj9wz8dn.jpg

    Hi Gang,

    Another update!

    Part II: The Fiberglass Skin

    Just as I cut the upper skin I mod'd the lower fiberglass skin
    IMG_20190105_073320_zpsmhxqwjfg.jpg

    I notched the sides leaving the bottom to cover the frame
    IMG_20190105_074734_zpscqv8uj67.jpg

    IMG_20190105_074740_zps5znmeaas.jpg

    I laser cut these mounting strips
    IMG_20190105_083959_zpspvot281a.jpg

    And adhered to the frame for the skin to mount

    Hi Gang,

    Part V: The Corridor Wall & Entrance

    I drilled holes into the wall frame to help keep in place
    IMG_20190106_095251_zpsqgbbdk92.jpg

    IMG_20190106_095256_zpslbazm76z.jpg

    More work on this guy...

    IMG_20190106_110144_zpsumtezzzt.jpg

    IMG_20190106_110149_zpsomnlib8q.jpg

    To help keep the walls in place I designed and laser cut a new floor with tabs cut
    IMG_20190106_110453_zpsnvi0stpv.jpg

    I added the tabs to the bottom of the frame and cut the holes in the floor
    IMG_20190106_110501_zps7ezv8ie7.jpg

    PERFECT!
    IMG_20190106_110515_zpsu7bqfzbo.jpg

    Gee... a plan comes together?

    Hi Gang,

    My apologies for not responding to all your comments! I've been really busy with work, projects, the YouTube channel and a flooded bathroom (which has kinda taken priority).

    I appreciate all the kind words, positive comments and likes! You all rock! :)

    Haha, the micro-Tardis is a blast!

    Having built my fair share of Airfix kits in my day, I am hugely impressed by your micro-greebly parts!

    Great update Greg; love the fact that you can judge the scale better comparing it to your hand size (somewhat);)(y)

    Hey FF,

    The Tardis is for a good friend of mine. Like many projects I've had to push it aside and she is NOT happy with me! ;)

    I love the laser cutter. Her ability to cut such fine details (when the settings are correct) still amazes me. I love pulling those perfect parts from the bed. Always puts a smile on my face.

    Thanks, J!

    I'm glad the videos are visually helping with the scale of the different projects. There are LOTS more coming to include the Nav Computer and probably a 1/4 and 1/6 gunner station! Why? Why not! ;)

    Thanks, K! I was hoping to get some work done this weekend but a flooded master bath prevented me doing anything away from the house. But that's ok. Despite my exhaustion, I got the video done and posted. I have a 3 day weekend coming up and I'll be focusing on the maint panel. :)

    Loving the videos you're taking the time to make and share now! Really nice to see your workflow in action. Also, really goes to show just how big quarter scale still is. Anyone with dreams of a full Falcon even at that scale better have some property set aside... Just the cockpit it huge.

    Hey ST,

    Thanks so much! Glad you're enjoying the vids. I'm trying to find right balance between posting to the RPF and what to show in the video. Dont want to show too much on the RPF since the images usually go up first. Hopefully its been a equal balance.

    The 1/4 scale is 28 inches wide! That's considerably smaller than the full scale but HUGE when compared to other scale models.
