I consider myself a fan of all the speeders in the Star Wars universe, so I must say that as soon as I saw the concepts of what the vehicles of the Han Solo movie would be, I was delighted with several of them.
I was able to build the M-68 and now I want to start with Enfys Nest's Skyblade 330 swoop bike.
And that's just the beginning, i plan to do most of the swoop bikes of the entire cloud raider band. Surely I will continue with the Skyblade 221, which is the bike that has a sidecar, that model totally blew my mind and so on until I completed the 4 or 5 main models of this band.

The skyblade 330 appears in several images on the net, according to wookipedia, it measures 7.62 meters long by 2.94 meters high, really, a very important size for being a speeder bike.
These data are contradictory if we compare it with the size of the Hasbro black series models, which are close to 1/12 scale, in this case, the model is 50 cm long (20 inches), this measurement scaled to 1 / 1 would leave us a total length of 6 meters. approx.
feel free to correct me if I am wrong in what I said about the scale.



I started at the front, with the control surfaces arranged in a triangular configuration. I took many references from the net and I want to get as close as possible to the real model of the movie.

Nice work. Gives me more of a T-16 vibe than the imperial shuttle.
Cheers,

I didn t know the T-16, I google it and I think you are right Starks, it is much more similar. :unsure:





The same happens to me.....:rolleyes:
T16 Skyhopper... skyblade 330... seems to me the intention was a variation here.
Either way, very cool!
Cheers,
Josh

As someone who really enjoyed Solo (there, I said it), I'm looking forward to seeing how this one turns out!

I thought it was great to. Was really disappointed they dont seem to be continuing the story.

On the other hand I fell asleep in The Last Jedi and cant be bothered finishing the sequel triliogy.
I tried starting again with the Force Awakens but just couldn't get there, i liked the actors but the story just wasn't there for me.
On the other hand loved Rogue one, Loved Solo, The Mandalorian has been up there for me with the greatest series Ive ever seen so I thought they nailed it with those programs. They felt like Star Wars to me.
Its only personal taste though.

Cheers,
Josh

I totally agree with what you say about Rogue one, solo and the Mandalorian, I think they are very good examples of what a Star Wars movie should be.
Cheers!

Updates on 3d modeling.

I was able to finish the back of the engine, adding quite a bit of detail to it.
When I design models for print, I always do it with post-processing in mind, that's why I add the details as individual pieces, rather than incorporating them into the main model. This allows surfaces to be worked with putty and sandpaper more freely, without fear of ruining any detail.


Some detail pieces first.

Some design updates

I Complete the pistons of the control surfaces, together with the handlebar, it will be connected to a shaft that will allow it to move back and forth, like the real model.

Then design the bottom and top covers. To support the bottom cover, also add the foot rest.

I finished the design stage, I did a double check to make sure that all the pieces are well placed and there are no problems in the mesh or overlaps, apparently everything is fine to continue with the printing stage.
During the next week I will be printing all the pieces to check tolerances and fittings.
Then comes the most complicated stage, putty and sandpaper to make the surfaces smooth and prepare everything for the painting stage.


The rear cover
It is a single piece, it contains all the marks to attach the smallest components, it also has the airbrake supports.

Nice modeling. Want to see how this one turns out in physical form. What kind of printer(s) will you be using for the parts?

That looks really good. Nice work.
Thank you very much Delano

Thanks Hagoth, I think the ideal would be to print everything on a resin printer, here in Argentina, I really don't have access to that type of printer, I could buy it, but the supplies are very expensive, so I'm going to use my FDM printer and then I'm going to work the surfaces as best I can to erase the damn print marks. I got a self-leveling resin that does the job quite well, mostly for the smaller and more detailed pieces.
For the larger, less detailed parts, I'm going to use putty and sandpaper. So I don't lose the habit of sanding. :rolleyes:

I started with the printing stage, I already have some pieces. I decided to print them in a color that does not attract attention at all, I consider that using a very discreet color makes the finishing stage easier ........... :rolleyes:..


Honestly, it is the only color I got in enough quantity to print the complete bike. :confused:


The pieces that are in these photos do not have any sanding or cleaning treatment, all of them must be sanded to remove excess plastic, supports, etc., they are as they came out of the printer.

Beginning to take shape! Nice base prints so far. Interested to see how the self leveling resin smooths out the surfaces.

Hi Hagoth. I finally decided to save the resin for another model, I think I will have better results applying it to organic models, also the price is quite high, so I will leave it for very small pieces or figures.
In this model, I will go with the sandpaper, putty and primer method.
