    Been working on roughing-out the cock-pit and access corridor. Feeling the full force of the "Ship of Riddles" effect now. I've been blissfully modeling away and everything has been working fine - until I got to trying to fit all of the access corridor into my exterior geometry.

    Here's a shot of my current compromised solution. Notice the difference in floor heights in the hall way and the cockpit...

    Here's a peek down the hallway - how ever wrong it may be...

    A little New Year's Eve noodling. The wife on the couch sewing, I next to her tweaking on the pilot seats. A little more "lived-in feeling" and, the upper quilting is more paunchy; like the photo reference I've seen.



    also; found this image while tooling around looking for reference. Were custom vans big in England in '77?

    TEST PRINTS!



    Low res, 1/6th scale model of the nav seat for CAD verification.

    Missing the TRM and Drogue Chute greebles, and the plexi panel on the rear frame, but gives me an idea of what will work, detail-wise, on the high res miniatures.

    I think this is an awesome idea! I would love to get involved on this... hell we may be able to create an entire kit just from printing. I've thought about something like this for awhile now. Have you talked to SteveStarkiller yet? He has done alot of work on a completely accurate falcon in 3D. Including the cockpit etc... he may be able to donate alot to this project as well. With this we all will be able to create our own 32" or 5 footer! I LOVE IT!

    Yup! That's the plan - to have a fully printable kit at some point. I'd love to get other people involved in the modeling of parts. I'm happy to host parts on my site for people that have already made stuff.


    SteveStarkiller and I have had quite a bit of dialog and comparing notes via PM.

    Let me know if you want to contribute.

    Cheers,

    I keep seeing things like this and think.... WOW!!! I am looking forward to seeing your progress, as I am planning to build the uber-awesome 5' SS Millennium Falcon (some day in the very near future). I am planning to take a course or two in CAD or 3-D modeling in the immediate future, too. With 3-D printing, a whole new world of modeling has opened up, and I can't wait to be a part of it! I have mad respect for your skills! Thank-you for sharing.

    Hey it looks like we are of similar opinion on this I created a thread over in the ss forum without knowing about this one titled 3d scanned parts resource basically same thought line as you but i was thinking about scanning the parts in and cleaning them up. Also i wanted to thank you on your falcon drawing joewhite made a modified version for a cutting template and I'm planning to use it as the base model for my 32" falcon.

    Oooo! Very cool! Do have any scan files yet? I'm happy to get in on clean-up duty!

    Glad you used my drawings! I have the base plates cut for a 32-incher as well!

    Not quite related to my main project, but fun nonetheless. This is actually what started this whole crazy endeavor - I made this to go with the LEGO Star Destroyer. It's to scale for that model. It was easier than making a LEGO Star Destroyer to go with the LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon kit. STL Files available on GrabCAD!

    Where have I been?

    Sorry, my work and travel schedule have been nutty the past couple weeks. I know I have a pile of PM's that I need to respond to. I'll catch up when I get back from Korea (again!)

    Been traveling a lot lately, but have kept chugging along. Been focusing on the main dashboard console for the cockpit. This includes building a library of common parts such as; the chicklet buttons, toggle switches, rocker switches, keycaps and so on. Hopefully this will make populating the sidewalls of the cockpit interior go a bit faster. Now for some eye candy…

    Greebling away!

    Just a few more bits to add (mainly below the levers) and then it'll be up on grabCAD...



    Greeble can be used as a verb, right? As in to greeble?

    Same model, but with some materials applied. Looks a bit naked without the pinstripes.

    Ha! You really want to see my to do list?

    Now that I have a nice passel of parts, I can start populating the rear wall and side panels of the cockpit interior.

    I still have some clean-up on the Nav Seat; and I want to rework the corridor to better resolve that riddle.

    Beyond that, I've had some offers from other forum members to donate 3D scans of exterior kit parts that I can digitize and clean-up for printing.
