    Thanks!
    Yes, endless playground for greebles - But keep in mind that this segment is only 37 x 57 x 24 mm in size…

    Next part in line:

    This is coming along very nicely.
    Following this thread gave me the incentive to watch the full movie again last night. :);)

    @DanBKing: thanks.
    @skoda: I hope soon :rolleyes:
    here is the development status:
    status.jpg

    I don't know how to simulate the "walkway" gratings at that scale.
    Black on white, grey on white or grey on black? Or printed on transparent material?
    Any suggestions?

    The build up of segment are going very smoth and better than expected:

    P1110178.jpg P1110181.jpg

    BUT then I realized that something is really gone wrong!
    The part has the wrong size. The parts are about 40% to big! AAAAAAARGHH
    :arghh: :banghead:

    P1110183.jpg

    The problem is not to scale it down to the right size (minute work)
    I fear the parts are too small to build it as intended…
