That's a clever way to mass produce those aluminum support pieces!
Thanks, Analyzer-san. The next work was not good for mass produce. :sick:

Drop. Dead. Gorgeous.
Thanks, Ged-san!

Continuing to build the belly detail.

I thought it may need a slip-on flange on each bulkhead for the drive rods. I've tried several way to build it efficiently.
that was not so efficient but anyway.

A small tube in the center is a template.

Look boring but more boring to build.

Thanks for looking! (yawning)

As ever, katsu-san, your attention to detail is ASTONISHING!

:O
Thank you, Doc!

Katsu-san, you've NEVER posted a boring picture. I love seeing the process as much as the results.
Thank you, Tom-san.

It's so hot everyday. Also, there's a hot news for me.
My daughter #2(zombie sculpture- succeeded a big deal. Sold a $100,000 diamond last week. I don't know who could pay that much for one single piece of stone. Anyway, she should be payed some bonus-I hope. Her success is my success! I will send her a catalog of 3D printer right away. :p

Hi! Michael-san, Thanks and how is your movie going? I always knew you have good talent for photographic things, too.

Talent for ‘ success ‘ runs deep in your family Katsu-san !;)
Thanks! The sure thing is I don't have any talent for success on ta business. :sick:


Here are some pics of progress.

I've tried to make some tube looks like a joint.

Isn't it seem like a fire extinguisher system? No?

Thanks for looking!

Superb craftsmanship Katsu-san !:D

How do you prevent the aluminium (?) tube pieces from ‘collapsing/losing their shape’ when ( I’m assuming ) you roll them along the file when creating the indentation markings on them ?:unsure:

Beautiful.
Thank you!

Excellent work as always!

I might have to borrow some of these techniques for the interior of my Republic Gunship!
Thank you! and nice to share mine with you.

So awesome to see this taking shape Katsu-san! The attention to detail is awesome!
Thank you so much!

Amazing work as usual Katsu-san - the fire-extinguisher system is a great detail.
Thank you,Lamby-san.

Larger pics show me some part need of touch up or redo. Also, need to add more accessories.
Then I build a pair of claw shaft to hug an AAV.
Just a thought but it will be interesting that this aircraft carries a modular cargo compartment.
Sometimes it carries a AAV or LAV, sometimes, a compartment of airborne unit, or combat command/medical center.
A compartment of dozen of Mk.82 slick bomb?
