Well, imagine my shock! Yesterday i was at a hospital to visit (all is OK btw) and I was amazed to find....
That louver detail stuff that is used on the TIE solar panels? EVERY window on the first floor of the hospital had them on it.
New Wing instructions are ready!!! Email me and I'll send them to ya!!
Ragacin email sent reference the solar screen..
For those that want to know.. Its called "COOLSHADE" the company is called RD Sunshine. Mike is who you need to talk with $100-150 gets enough screen for one complete TIE. Remember before you order the screen used on the tie is cut for different angles. Not straight up and down so measure accrdingly.
Gonna chime in with my few cents worth on rhe KOOLSHADE screen. Ive constructed two of the HERO Ties and 4' x 6' is almost enough to do two complete TIES! As a minimum bare any mistakes in cutting you can make ONE HERO TIE FIGHTER using 1.8' x 4.6' of KoolShade Material see pics (the screen is smaller than the size given). I have the patterns for the hero wings. Remember to add 1/8" to 1/4" to the pattern as it is hidden by the wing struts and Plastruct H beam.
You will need 8 of the top piece and 16 of the other. 2'x 6' is a safe if you make alot of mistakes but if you want the amount with no left over 1.8' x 4.6' is enough. It easily cuts with scissors so as long as you make the pattern and work one piece at a time you'll be fine. Get with Mark to see what that size would cost. May safe $30 to $50 bones. Thats enough to buy a much needed parts kit or take your lady out to dinner for putting up with this maddness!
I'm curious about the cool shade. It seems pretty expensive for the material and it seems from reading the forum that quite a few people have been left hanging after ordering it. Is the supplier reliable?
I just scrutinized the pics in the chronicles book show the ties under going what looks like prepping for pyro techniques there are rings of a putty like substance on the outer wing panels is this correct or am I an idiot
