    Hi,

    I could finally manage to fix the over all design of my next model,
    It will be a 3 foot long model of the battle ship.
    I started to build the 1 foot long nose section now.













    Thanks for looking,

    Thank you for your pleasant comment, my friends,

    Hi, Doc. Victor3, Mikeee-san, long time no see. Thank you Jim the caretaker-san and Jarroth-san.
    Thank YOU, SofaKing the great builder! and Albertese-san, you should bring a buckets of pop corn because it will be a long ride this time, (as usual).
    Thank you Blakeh1 and Cadeus-san.
    We are all fine and my daughter's are working so hard everyday.
    One of them is selling jewels and looks too busy for the sculpting and the other one is making a bunch of ballet costumes for the rent.

    Ha ha, what a silly dad, OK OK Let's shut up!!
    But I'm so happy to see her doing the things she really loves.

    I'm going to use some aluminum plate for this model this time.
    It's strong and easy to cut or bend and less dust.

    I've ordered some 0.3 mm aluminum plate already but not been delivered yet.
    So, I tried to use some thin aluminum sheets for practice - actually it is a beer can - to see how it is.



    Put it on a sharp 90 deg. edge and knock with a wooden block to bend and get a angled beam.
    I learned this in my junior high school days. My first work was a dust scoop. XD





    Looking good.










    Maybe I can use them for the base of further detailing.
    So that may be I don't have to spend a long time to look for the good shaped kit parts anymore.

    Thanks for looking.

    Katsu

    Hi, Tom-san,
    I am so happy to be back here with a new model.
    It was so hard and took long time to come up with this design but I hope you love it.
    Thank you for your usual strong support .

    whatever will be will be. XD

    Thanks Jim-san,

    So far the progress is slow but I'm getting used to this metal work.
    It's very fun to do.

    Those look like some very clean cuts and bends in your metalwork!

    What's that blue foam spaceship in the first picture of your first post? Is that a mock-up of this one?

    Hi! Mike-san,

    Thanks for the comment.
    I am using a 0.3 mm thick of aluminul sheet. You can cut the alumi sheet just like you cut the sheet plastic if the thickness is less than 1.5mm.
    I am bending with my hands so far but looks like U.S provides many good tools for the metal sheet work like bead roller of BOSRON.
    It seems many of those motorcycle fans are making their custom tanks or parts with these thick aluminul sheets.

    Yes, that little blue thing is the rough mock-up of this one.
    As usual, the finished model would be drastically different.

    Well, I assumed it wouldn't be blue. Not that that's a bad color

    The general shape looks good.
