No 3D PrintTotally agree . You’ve added all those extra details yourself - no 3D printed components so far right ? Fantastic work .
Thanks for sharing , and hope you’ll keep updating .
You can absolutely build it without upgrades or lights. If you like Star Destroyers, this one is the best styrene kit commercially released. If you just want to build and paint it right out of the box, it shouldn't take you more than a weekend to build and paint. Dry-Fitting this kit showcases a good tight fit. Not as spectacularly engineered as a Bandai kit - but for a traditional glue plastic kit - this one and the details are very impressive. It puts the old MPC kit to absolute shame.The question is, would it be a crime to build this kit straight out of the box and paint it without any upgrading or lights?
Have a look here:The question is, would it be a crime to build this kit straight out of the box and paint it without any upgrading or lights? But if the answer is yes, then i just won't build one at all.
I only use 0,25 FO i think the 0.5 is to big for this model
I agree. That's why I won't even bloom the ends of mine, although I've had a fair amount slip out even after securing with Tulip. I guess I may have to switch to Elmer's as it seems like that is what many of you guys are using.
Gotta say I'm envious of how you guys keep you FO strands so neatly collected. I going off small (6") spools and the fibers have a very tight curl once I cut off a strand. Trying to corral 30 strands into a neat bunch is frustrating as hell. That's where I get most of the slip thru too.
Right now I'm going with 30 cm length for just about every section. I know I'll be wasting a fair amount, but since I don't know what exactly I'll need for any given section, I want as much flexibility as possible in being able to join various bunches together to utilize less LEDs. Right now I'm figuring six LEDs for all the FO, with the engines and bay lights on a separate circuit.
