Same here - I'm only seeing 3 files in the storage folder.

Other than these exchanges I have no info or access to any folder or corresponding email to any folder. Not in my direct folder, junk folder or spam folder. This is the only place I get any info from...Despite being in Mexico currently, I am able about once per week to update and correct any missing links. So if you are still having a technical issue accessing the folder, please PM me. To the best of my current knowledge, all subscribers have access.
In the private messages I sent you on April 8, 2020 and April 23, 2020 I offered to help clean things up or do whatever else I could do to help further the project beyond my initial investment in helping you buy your scanner. You responded on April 23, 2020 saying you'd be happy to have me clean up the scans. I'm still happy to help in cleaning up these files to create printable models, but I will obviously need the scans to start off with, and they will have to be in some file format that I can work with.4. My second impression was that skilled RPFers would volunteer their time to tweak/revise/perfect the scans as they came in, and thus this would be a collective effort. I was wrong here as well. Exactly no one stepped forth to volunteer or offer their services for the greater good.
Yeah, the 2 usable files are already "watertight" and printable models.IIRC the files in that folder are all good except the "wing". Cantina Dude - if you can fix that I'd appreciate it Also if you're willing to teach me how to do it I could assist with the cleanup... I'm computer literate - but a 3D modeling noob - but also a pretty quick learner
PM if you're interested in showing me how to do it
Is this project still ongoing?
Sadly as one of the Tier 8 supporters I would not recommend contributing until we start see some progress on this project. The last personal correspondence with S. Kitbash was July 12 2020, sending me a link to 3 files of various quality - there has been no new progress on the project since.I'm interested, do you know anything new, how many kits are available?.
I am still up for cleaning some scans up to make them printable, particularly if they are for models I am most interested in, as I've said before. Again, if you upload some scans in a usable format (i.e. ".stl" or ".obj" NOT ".asc") I can take a look at them.Cantina Dude, if your offer still stands to tweak/revise/perfect files, I'd love to take you up on it. Anyone else who has CAD skills and can offer their help, I'm both eager to learn and eager to have your assistance. If you have "serious" skills in this area, and haven't yet signed up, I'd be happy to swap a subscription at Tier 8 for your help in revision so that the output could be perfect .stl files that were "ready to print."
I can also help clean scansHappy news -- we are back from our one-semester sabbatical in Mexico, and as of this weekend, I am back in the (very crowded) basement, scanning away. So this project is not lost, forgotten, or abandoned, and right now I am scanning the two subassemblies for the Y-Wing wings, of which you'll need to print four.
Thanks for hanging in there. All your criticisms are well founded, and I certainly understand your frustration. Keep paying attention and you'll start to see the folders populate.
