Is there something you cannot do? Wow...paint job is A+ for sure (y) (y) :cool::cool::notworthy::notworthy: I guess you'll add the oil streaks on the pistons also?
Thanks Joberg, there's lots I can't do.... yet. ;) I'm painting and weathering the underside units in sections, then with everything done I'll go back and balance out the tones and weathering, tweak any missed bits. That's 'PLan A'. :confused:

I've just finished painting the wings and underside of 'Slave 1' using Archive-X acrylics and oils.
You can see exactly how on my YouTube channel HERE

Amazing once again :cool: :cool: (y) (y) :notworthy::notworthy: I know that the rod is a great way to display models; especially with moving parts (like the wings of this ship) Would a clear acrylic plate, with the proper attaching nut, do the trick also?
The plate would be the same width,(not the shape), as the bottom of the skirt and this plate secured to the base...you would still see the underside more clearly than the one with the rod;)
Just an idea:)

Hi Joberg, that's a good option for displaying Slave 1. The problem I have is that with all the resin printed parts Slave 1 currently weighs about 6 kilos. An acrylic cradle would be a good option but you can see why my stand is designed to withstand seismic charges.

Well, I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed your build + paint and the tutorial accompanying every vids. (y) (y) :cool::cool::notworthy::notworthy:
It's a very good representation of Slave I and I'm sure, that your new files will be even better (if that's possible, since I think your model is already A+)!

Thanks joberg, glad you enjoyed the series. I'm currently switching between video editing and CAD work on Slave 1. CAD work is slow as I'm finding it difficult to re-create the panel lines but I'll get there. The main shape has been corrected now and it's looking a lot better. I'll post again when I have something worth showing. :)

It's been great watching this build series, Sera. Thanks for sharing the approach, and I'm looking forward to the mounting hardware episode.

Furball,
Scrolled through your thread on Slave 1. Need to grab a glass of JD and Coke when I watch your build video. Comments from the experts on this web really are “lessons” in themselves. They say it all.
My input is appreciation regarding the level of detail achieved by CAD and 3D printing. Incredible range of technical computer knowledge and skill you folks posses. How you all then apply those tools like an artist with craftsmanship to then create the model. Has me shaking my head.
