    UPDATE 4/07/2016:
    All paid orders are now shipped. I still have sets of photo-etched grilles left and now I am offering them on "first come - first served" basis. Once they are gone - they are gone, I will not be ordering more. If you wish to order a set, please send your payment including the shipping amount to volteco@gmail.com. Please include your forum name and your address (if different from PayPal address).

    UPDATE 5/26/2016:
    NOW IN PRODUCTION!

    The photoetched grilles have arrived and I am happy to show how they look like. At the same time I am staring the production. Please see the details below.

    Huge THANK YOU to DaveG for making this project possible!

    The thinner grilles on the photoetched sheet are half-etched to create depth.

    Here is how the primed set looks like:

    [​IMG]

    The price for the whole set (6 Photoetched grilles plus 6 SLA printed ports and fans) is $75 USD plus shipping.

    Shipping is flat rate $15 USD for USA and Canada and $45 for the rest of the world.

    UPDATE: There is also an option $16 shipping overseas by "Small packets - Air" but it doesn't come with insurance or tracking information. You can choose this option at your own risk, I can not be held responsible for the package lost or damaged during shipping if you chose this shipping method. I have to add that I never had any problems with this shipping method in the past though.

    I will be sending payment information soon to the first 10 people on the interest list. As soon as the orders are fulfilled for the first 10 people I will process the next 10 and so on, in order to avoid any unforeseen delays.

    UPDATE 6/8//2016: Payment information sent to the next 10 people on the list.

    Re: Set of 3D SLA Printed Grilles with Fans for the Engine Deck for DeAgostini Falcon

    Hey Darkview,
    I don't have the exact dimensions, nor do I know what parts have been used to make the master pattern. If you know that (or anyome else) and are willing to share that information, that would be very much appreciated. I had an opportunity to make some close up shots of the actual 32 inch filming miniature on Star Wars Identities in Montreal a few years ago. I will post side by side photos soon.
    Thank you,
    Gus

    I could be interested. I have fallen a little behind on my deAgostini falcon build so do I take it from these that we will be required to cut out the holes for the engine grills from the hull sections? Cheers John

    Very interested! Will it be able to order these add-ons at Shapeways? I am from Europe so Shapeways is a great source for us as they are able to print the stuff in the Netherlands and I donĀ“t need to fear the customs / international shipping stuff

    Thank you Everyone for the interest!

    Here is a comparison photo with the actual filming miniature part:

    [​IMG]

    I have changed the shape a bit and made the spacing on the grille smaller.

    I have been advised by a very reputable, experienced and respected member of our community that I make the grilles brass photo-etched. He was very kind in helping me to achieve that. This is still work in progress. I hope that very soon I will be able to provide more details including the pricing.

    Thank you everyone for the interest. While I am waiting for the photo-etched grilles to arrive I wanted to share the photos of the final design of the fan and exhaust port.
    Please stay tuned for more updates in the near future!

    Yes, thank you! You can prime right away, however the set will be shipped with supports attached to the backs of the fans and vents, to protect the parts during shipping. You will have to cut them off (very easy with Exacto knife) and possibly lightly sand off the remains of the supports. I will post some pictures soon to show.

    While the final product is just stunningly beautiful (and reasonably priced) , the 45$ postage to Europe is killing it for me. That's 41% of the total price (and customs might even increase that further)

    I don't think I'll be able to justify that. (Though I'm struggling with myself here)

    Unfortunately that is the only option to ship with insurance and tracking number. There is an option $16 USD (Small packets - air) but it doesn't have the insurance nor tracking. Although I never had any problems shipping it this way in the past, I have to state that I am not taking responsibility for the package lost or damaged during shipping. Please PM me for more details.
