Nice. Looks like you are getting a lot closer to the finish

What was that capsule thing?

Kind of cool, but the inside with the blue and white reminds me of walking into one of those port-a-potties

Getting kind of close still a bit more to do. The capsule thing is that space ship I was building from a toy. Remember me saying something about wanting to build something that was better than nothing. Yep it does look like a inside of a porta pottie still a bunch to do on that it was what I was working on before this quest. Thanks Friend

Okay Guys, Yep Analyzer getting quite close. Thanks Guys for all the comments and likes they mean a lot much needed mostly when blood sucking flying tiny bugs are trying to eat you. I lit me smoker and turned on me fan and ran them off. I like the big door open lets in a bunch of light also those bugs. So that bottom panel I am still studying on and do think I have a plan on it cause those side boosters will also be on as said I have to study a thing or to mightest have a plan. So now that is what I am doing studying the panels no flights today. So here we go Enjoy

Okay Guys I already see a small part on the one main panel its kind of crooked I will fix that cause the other panel will but up to that one but it will be removable. the one that is on there is one that doesn't remove sorry the last pic was blur but one of those pesky bugs was biting my neck. Yep Analyzer you are rite it is getting close. But I might re do that bottom engine. I will flip it and give it a look I am going to check the mount see how it is doing I used thread locker on it should be just fine. But that engine is to skinny I need to fatten it up just a bit or all of it we shall see That project alone could eat up a whole day but I can make it better cause I done done it once I guess you can tell by looking at the engines I wish I could tare that first one off and do it all over it is what it is cool looking once again I do want to say Thanks to all for everything I have learned a bunch on this like wood fussing never would have thought but the girl bot was a bit fuzzy and I use to do pro painting on homes. retired now making is much better than napping on the couch which happened this morning I lost some time some how. Thanks joberg for that info if I use wood in the future builds I will prep it way more than I have on this but I am going to ween away form using that if I can. Also has been some good info got me to slow down and enjoy the build and be a bit more note worthy on placement. Every body's comments have been GREAT!!! This Is What RPF is about Love it also Love the likes as well Stay Tuned lots more getting bit happening Thanks

Okay Guys I don't feel like I got much done today but I did, I been fitting panels. It has been tough, I need to get a bit stronger magnets the ones I have now wont do the trick and made a super glue run yep used it all I forgot to check the magnet area out. I then got caught up on working on the one front top panel the one with b the scoop its almost there Thanks Guys for all the likes and comments so here is a bit of not much but seems like it was a full busy day, I will have more pic wise next day in the shop all I have today was more or less a bunch of chopped up panels and there will be 5 removable ones in all. Enjoy

20220729_143240.jpg
That clearer panel well be a bit shorter cause I did straighten out that crooked spot up on top and a panel butts up to that spot and comes forward a bit more ally clips holding everything in place as I study this process. I also was badly distracted by some wild grandboys 3 at once ages 4 5 and 10 wow jumping all around so I took the rest of the day off waiting to make me super glue run now I need to make a magnet run. I will skin the back part that needs some skin then the other nozzle cone after that a flip over and study that engine on the bottom, might be a easy fix we shall see. Stay Tuned lots more bout to happen Thanks once again to all for the support Thanks

Okay Guys was just out in the shop killed a good size brown recluse up on me bench and yep I watch out for them. Whilest I was out there I test sprayed some metallic silver on the one engine and that crap is sparkle well but what I have been using is not as bright more duller looking so and they over charged me so back to wally world in the morning do my self a exchange if they done have that color I will just get primer and do another route for paint go see me good friend at the auto paint and supply place for sure wont go wrong there. Got to watch some of that paint cause it can melt crap don't want to wind up with a melted mess naw should be good me friend know the stuff he has been there for me before. Thanks Guys

Okay Guys, a busy day in the shop, So first Thanks Guys for all the likes and comments fuel to the fire keeps me making. So after fighting these panels it will only have 4 removable panels. still need some stronger magnets will get those, and yep the flip happened me and my 10 year old grandson flipped it right over. Camera mount is nice and secure but I think I am going to get some of that epoxy ribbon mead it together and there where the bolt holds the camera mount needs to be filled and made solid it works fine but its only a small strip holding the ship I would feel better if that was reinforced. Well you know already what I did and it looks so much better Here you go Enjoy

Okay Guys, Wow that has never happened. So here we go today got the boosters all attached all cool and good then I went and got me grandson cause I wanted to flip it back till I get some ribbion and forgot the one panel with the boosters was still on there it didn't bounce but everything exploded which was a good thing cause the boosters was off way off. So with this panel being removable I need to make it strong to with stand another impact, which wont happen on my watch, but it has to be good those magnets would have came in handy today but I will fix the off part. It is the way this panel sits in. The engine looks cool sitting there on the table Well Thanks guys for all the likes and comments helps me keep it going I started this thing back on May 31st heading into Augest but I am so close to having it done. Here you go Friends Enjoy

So Okay Guys, that fall was a good thing cause I have the boosters marked on the panel where to place them, cause when I placed the panel on with the boosters it just didn't look right. So I have a plan it just came to me I will use some small screws to hold them in place along with a bit of super glue. Yep the way the panel was it would not have worked good to have a fail in the shop than on site. But it is getting fixed. Time to get those magnets for sure I still have to fix the mount as well. only with the reinforcements. Whilest I wait for all that I will work on baby Yoda's nest yep have that all figured out I will be sharing this progress as well. I will also start cutting parts for the tail got to keep it going I still have a new bottle of super glue to use lets see I am on bottle 15 now and 2 epoxey glue I do need me some more of that. I am out Thanks Guys for following along on another one of my crazy quest there have been many but the crazyest is the girl robot. Stay Tuned more making happening Thanks

Yep lots of parts to be made for this. bout time for another stand test might fly in the morning shoot some womp rats. So whats on me mind I have been thinking bout the stand and this is getting some weight and this stand is made for a heave camera not some Mando ship me x wing was heavy as well and that stand was weak or lighter than this stand this one it heavy duty and its flown before with no problem. I forgot magnets today whilest I was out about getting super glue wally world only had one line open and it had 3 carts ahead of me and the woman had over 100 items in the 20 items or less lane which was the only one open so me went to the service desk and checked out wasted 15 min standing there and the store was getting backed up what a adventure that was. Thanks Guys for All Stay Tuned lot more going to happen Thanks

Also bout to get busy on this contraption for vacuforming I have been wanting one anyways and it will be a nice addition to me tools. I will build it for easy storage. I now have to make that part that goes down to the engine from the tail right under the belly of the ship I also need to epoxy ribbin the mount. But just to say it works just fine cause we went out for a flight seen some jawas and some sandpeople. Yep the stand works superbly Well Here You Go Enjoy
