    Hi All.

    Can someone tell me how to make the raised lip / bevel that goes around K-9's video screen? I don't see an easy way to do this in styrene. The one's in the pictures don't even have a seam.

    thanks in advance,

    Frank

    Bah, I've not been on the RPF for ages as I'd forgotten my log in.. if I'd have remembered them a bit earlier I may have been able to help you out- I've just helped out an exhibition with Matt and he had the original prop there.












    I don't know how recent you are aiming for with the look of your replica, but here's Matt pointing out the new rivets on K-9's head, he's got so fed up of the screws being obvious he decided to make it a design feature!



    In addition we had two other K-9's on display, so we took a group shot after the event had finished and we were packing up! The original prop is in the middle!







    I hope these are of use!

    All that side screen trim looks a little different on those 3 versions of K-9 in the photos above. The seams can be hidden or covered with filler, etc.

    For mine and others Ive seen, its just door trim.

    Thanks. I'll probably get some door trim from an auto parts store.

    For the pictures with the deeper bevels, does one use a thick strip of styrene and heat it to bend it into a smooth curve for the corners... And sand the front edge a bit to give it that rounded look?

    Bump for a great build.

    I have styrene laying here on the floor just waiting till I can take my shot at Dave's plans. Dave really makes incredible guides. Thanks to Dave!
    Thanks mate, as usual I am running behind on my schedule to get everything finished. I had December flagged to finish K-9 off so I can complete the tutorials, but I didn't receive the ear servos until a few days ago.

    The gun mechanism is almost complete, I will add the tickertape tongue after everything else is finished. Then comes the control system which I want to make as simple as possible for builders.

    I have also uprated the floor for the drive motors. I had not anticipated how heavy the head is and it can cause the floor to flex and over a years operation it was showing cracks. All this will be in the update tutorials.

    I searched for "Dave Everrett Styrene plans" and found some cool looking stuff that I'd like to buy plans for, but I can't seem to find where to buy those plans. A direct like would be much appreciated. If you're not comfortable posting it here for some reason, please PM it to me. I'm very interested in the K-9 and the astromech plans.

    Good news Dave. Still wishing to build, but not in a real hurry.

    Hi

    I have just got myself a static fiberglass K9 and wondered if you have still have your plans of how you put the lights in and motorised him.

    Any help you could give would be great.

    Thanks.

    John

    Nice to see those, thanks for posting those real dog shots. Those other model look like they have the fiberglass casts off the original. Its hard to get those bodies, I would love one, someday LOL

    Never noticed the square tubing on the bottom of that one before. Most use the foam rubber pipe insulation, which mine will have.

    Im not going for anything specific era wise, I just want a general K-9, altho his plans are based off the Baker Era K-9. I had to take liberties with his head some, but its not noticeable.

    Thanks for that, I can open the tail and neck sections but the rest come up with \"application/octet-stream\" and will not open as a PDF.

    any ideas?

    Does anyone know someone who would take my model on as a project?

    I have just checked the files in the files section, they come through okay on my machine and the one I tested on at work. I am using Firefox and Chrome. I just clicked on them and a save window come up. The files are missing the .zip extension I am pretty sure, but if you add them when they download then it should be fine. Unzip them then in each zipped folder there is a set of .pdfs, some with the instructions and the plans for that section.

    I think that will depend where you live and if there is a keen builder in your area.

    I live in Brighton and there seems to be no one in the area to customise my K9 for me. (yes I have tried google)

    Do any of you guys know anyone looking for a project? I am willing to travel (within reason) to try and get him sorted.

    Thanks

    I love K-9 and I'd love to try and build a replica myself. I'm currently looking for plans and I've tried registering for that site, but I don't get an email through to complete my registration. Is there a problem with registration at the minute and could anyone please email me a copy of those plans directly.

    Thanks!

    I have checked with the site owner and he says that in the last week he has sent off 5 registration confirmations. First check your spam folder. If it is not there, pm me with your email address and we will help sort this problem out.

    MFP, PM me your email address and the user name you used to register on the forum. Will email the site owner (I know him personally) and check with him. Do double check your spam folder, just in case.

    Regards, Izzy
