OK, so here we go again. I am starting a new thread for this as the last one was stopped because of issues with file ownership. I am glad to say that those issues have now been resolved and the project, to produce an accurate digital model of this most enigmatic of ships, can proceed. I am using the base mesh files that Guy Cowen spent a lot of time, money and travel to produce. I have always wanted to model this ship and to do it 'right' and now with his blessing, I can hopefully realise that aim

So, I have decided to use an approach that will produce a printer friendly ship without losing accuracy but will be 'idealised' in terms of symmetry and separation of parts. I like the way the Bandai model is assembled with tabs and press fit parts so I have that as a guide

The wings are finished;

And most of the engine bay is done;

Looks very good mate(y)(y):cool::cool: It's true that Guy Cowen had done a lot of research as well as blood, sweat and tears concerning that particular model:cool::cool:
Thanks. More progress;
Got the underside and back of the fuselage done and added the canopy, nose and wing bells;

Just the greeblies in the wing wells to do, and the mystery, that is the cockpit, to solve...any help on kit ID's would be gratefully received
Coincidentally I got the itch to try and build a replica of Slave 1... to the best of my ability... I was doing some hardcore digging and found this thread! Absolutely blown away by all the effort and talent that has gone into this model! I was going to get the vintage collection Slave 1 and then try and accurize it... but if you would be generous enough to sell the stl files for 3D printing when you're completed... I would absolutely be interested! I read that you might have an Etsy account GEEK1138. I'd love to check it out to see some of your other work too!
It's like a High Tech Toy Store, cant wait to get my Elegoo Jupiter for these..

Thank you so much! I can already tell I am going to get some of these. Actually blown away!!! High Tech Toy Store is right! Just gotta find someone with an amazing resin printer to help out. I truly hope GEEK1138 considers adding this Slave 1. I still can't get over how beautiful this is turning out!
