Thanks for another video Stu, can't get enough of these!
Cheers Joberg. Computer images work well ditectly off the screen when scaling is taken into account.Fantastic workmanship mate...and I do the same as you: for my 2001 Docking Bay, I blew the pic on the computer to the right size (15") and took direct measurements from there. Worked very well
Ha, thanks man!. When I'm not on screen & just talking, that's me more than likely scruffy as per the ILMers!.I second that ! You can't make too many of these videos. It's like watching ILM back in '77. All you need is a beard, long hair, and a flannel shirt and your there.
; ) Cheers,
Thank you so much Searun. I'm glad you are enjoying my videos & it's helping with your build.eagle1- great video again. The armor segment lines, notch location attention to detail, etc. wonderfully explained. Your build is in a class all its own.
Yeah, I'm about 3 months past due for a haircut. With my beard I'm looking like John Dykstra, ; ) If my Galactica was finished I would pose with her like the famous picture, LOL. Oh well I was a kid during the 70s so I'll just relive the decade. Cheers,Ha, thanks man!. When I'm not on screen & just talking, that's me more than likely scruffy as per the ILMers!.
Hey Joe,Stu, I know it's probably somewhere in the thread, but I couldn't find it. What thickness of styrene did you use for the mandibles. Also are the maintenance pits on top and bottom in line with each other. I know they're different on each side. But didn't know if they line up vertically. The blue prints from Vfx and Maruska don't show dimensions on the bottom mandibles. Thanks,
Thanks man, I was going to use acrylic but styrene is so much easier to cut. I wasn't sure about the bottom pits. I'll do as you did and lay out the bottom with parts. That's if I have the kits to do it,Hey Joe,
I used 3mm styrene.
Through alot of working out i ascertained that that no pits were placed evenly from side to side or top & bottom. I had to work out each one individually with kit part placement & distancing between the kit parts to mandible edges & even measuring the nibbles/lengths of each styrene armor plate.
