Impressive project. Looking forward to see this build when it’s done. Do you happen to know if there is a layout of the building and all of the brass panels or dI’d you do all of the R&D yourself?Ok folks. Firstly apologies for not posting here awhile. Plagued with ill heath( kidney stones) recently and it’s thrown me right off balance. So I‘ll be back posting more regularly on this again soon Including a more complete buttress.
In what I call a chance discovery, a few weeks ago I found what what I thought was impossible.... the photoetch used on a lot of the original castings/ master patterns. It’s not made anymore and yes, “rarer than hens teeth”. its used on the patterns for the top of the Pyramid and the two you can see in the photo. Its also used on the close up Elevator ( on the ends).
I also discovered some of the tinier model pieces as well and these I can confirm we’re on all on the original patterns including the main face of the Pyramid. So I now have 90% of the parts identified.
The small antennae which some will have noticed from before are for the top of the buttresses. These have been made from scrap pieces of left-over photoetch. They’re not accurate in a sense of being exact but they look the part and the original model makers may have used to same technique. And they‘re all different, no two alike. View attachment 1461480
