Very nice Work Cybergrinder, keep it up
That section really came out great!! If I didn't know where the seams were, I wouldn't see them.
That is high praise indeed Zathros, thank you!
Looks great! Looking forward to the greebles!
What I have been doing is working on the top section of the secondary hull so I can figure out the alignment & cuts required for the supports & wiring. Pic coming soon! Then I'll greeble the bottom section (not much on the top)
After that I'll join the nacelles....
Going to need more clear LED's for the saucer....
Here we go, top of the secondary hull!
80's lego guy approves!
Shuttle bay attached
And now, the moment of truth, attaching the wings and nacelles. Nacelles not attached yet
And here they are....
Wiring and gaps to be completed
In terms of quality of construction, I think this is your best model yet!! It looks excellent!!!
High praise indeed! Thank you Zathros!
You nailed those nacelles! Great job!
Looking forward to seeing them lit up.
@Sky Seeker , there is a post earlier in the thread with them lit up
I need to do the wiring before anymore lighting photos as the supply is entering via the nacelles, each nacelle carries the seperate polarities.
Now, who's for some tea?
Yes, I've started on the saucer section.
And the supports
What a nice dish!
Those formers aren't glued down in that pic, are they? Also, in real aircraft, to make formers stick to compound surfaces, the binding agent is a very thick, think, "thick peanut butter, no nuts" as gooped on around an inch thick and wide. This holds the composite surface to the formers, and takes up any difference in shape. Think compound curve saucer, straight edged top of former. Put some longitudinal formers to make the framework even on both sides. You will have a very strong saucer section. Looking really good.
Formers not glued down
that was just a test "fit"
Another test fit with the formers for the underside. I can see a challenge getting the lighting right for some of the windows....
I'll figure it out though!
Good news, I figured out how to do the lighting
Lots of chopping to the saucer base required for the LEDs and some delicate surgery to the B former...
You are really putting your Cyber nose to the Grind stone!!
