"Yeah, better contact the RPF; they'll know what to do"That's a fun photo. Is it a screengrab from the film?
It's like it's a photo of Daisy Ridley intently examining one of those fictitious "blueprints" books or something. "Wait a minute, guys! This is just like the Millennium Falcon problem. I'm looking at this diagram, and there's just no way that those corridors could possibly fit inside the full-sized ship!"
Toadmeister, I agree straight red would not work. I have seen good realistic coloring by using mostly brown with just a little red added. It will take some experiments to get the exact right shade for the blockade runner. The task is made even more complicated by the off white foundation color already on the runner.
Thanks Bauble...I have to give you the sad news that the model has been destroyed completely (in the garbage) I'm in process of moving elsewhere for work (and house) and I couldn't transport this huge Behemoth And yes, DaveG inspired me to start it...I'm still waiting for Dave to do his; I'm sure that it'll be great!Thanks, Analyzer, 3DImpact and joberg. I just found joberg's build. It is AMAZING!!! The patience that went into that thing... And it looks fantastic!
Here is a link to it for those wondering what we are talking about (I also just bumped it up the queue in case you are reading this fresh):
Ever since I first saw 2001: A Space Odyssey in 1968 at the age of ten I've wanted to recreate the iconic Space Station V from the film. Nothing else seems to express such joy, optimism and grandeur of the future. Sadly, the year 2001 has come and gone and commercial travel into space is still a...www.therpf.com
Analyzer, comparing this to the Hammerhead, this build is much more tedious because of the 11 engines (= monotony). It is definitely more suited to my pandemic lockdown situation though. It gave me lots of engineering challenges both small and large.
My current problem is I don't know what to build at the 1/144 scale next... so I am hunting for my next scratch build project.
