Sorry that you had to be put in that position especially considering how giving you have been

It's like recasting for the digital age

I am still, pulled files or not, so grateful for this thread and inspiring work DaveG!

I am doing a hobby project of my own related to the Y-wing (not a prop or replica and def not commercial) and am in dire need of correct proportions of the Y-wing. Your files, those available, are a great help.

Thanks for the inspiration, hard work and for sharing! <3

A question, how accurate would you say the 3D model is and how close are Gold Leader and Green Leader Y-wings with respect to proportions?

Here are a couple of overlays on Gold 2. I did have to move some of the parts relative to each other, mainly rotation as the model is not "straight". The only major difference I think was the neck was too short.

Found a pic that shows there is not much if any change in the main layout, neck does look longer on Gold 3 I think, but could be the lighting.

THE FORWARD FUSELAGE FILES ARE BACK UP!

I've decided to take a chance and repost the 3D printing files for the Forward Fuselage in the Open Source files repository. Not having them available is a big stumbling block for many and the whole purpose of the Open Source project was to encourage other build. The files are here:


Please, please, PLEASE do not use these files for anything other than personal builds. Please do not print and sell parts. It's digital recasting and while, realistically, there is nothing I can do to stop you... it's so not cool!

Enjoy. Build. Post!

That is awesome, thank you! Seems very accurate! Cool work with the overlay!

Thank you so, so much! I promise you, this is for personal use only and when my project is picking up speed I will share it where appropriate. I just hope everyone else respects it too.

I've been using the model as it was when I made the post previously, to measure things for my own project. With the whole project, I can do it even better!

In honor of both the awesome 3D model by you DaveG and the many inspiring posts and thoughts about the Y-wing by Studio Kitbash I made this little picture (see below). I did not find any Fibonacci/Golden Ratio gauge for screen use, so I made my own (well, I added Golden Ratio markers to an open source screen ruler I found, minimal effort with reasonable result). Behold, the digitial version of the picture of Studio Kitbash :)
