Re: I got a new present! A 3D printer.

The models are good so far, reasonably detailed, although I do not like panel lines, as they have; but your printer possibly would not be able to print the panels, depending on the scale and the resolution you choose. Prefer to print the FTM files, as the author already split the models to avoid too...

Re: Ariel 1/1000 WIP

How about making a sort of blunt stub piece and have the builder cut the top portion of the connecting dorsal, as I had to in the below pic? Makes it easier on all involved. IMG_1408.JPG It is a great idea, Griffworks, although I think the Ariel connecting dorsal is thicker than the standard Connie...

Re: Ariel 1/1000 WIP

It was not forgotten, Moongrin, the progress is being slow, but I am getting closer to finish it. Those details over the shuttle bays took me a lot of time to model, but I am happy with the result. Ariel_wip_03.jpg Ariel_wip_04.jpg The neck attachment will be conjectural, as I do not have a 1/1000 C...

Re: Show us your work area, work bench, work station, ect...

...Just an idea... Why don't you build a folding table right on the wall? (in the livingroom or kitchen or somewhere...) One with 2 door hinges attached to the wall, and a leg with a hinge attached to the end of the table. When you use it, you unfold it down. When not in use, you fold it up neat ne...

It is very sturdy and folds away and is easily stored b...

Re: Show us your work area, work bench, work station, ect...

I have the same problem, small apartment, lack of space, and I have to prepare my work space every time that I want to build something, this is a show stopper by itself, as I will think twice before start anything. I am looking for a lightweight "folding" table, to make things easier, so I...
