Long ago there was a nice collection of models on the BTCAD site. I had downloaded many of them, and last fall I started building a ship model from there. The site is no longer alive, but a few months ago I did find them in the wayback machine. I started the ship just to do something different from all the aircraft and spacecraft stuff I usually do. The model, at a scale of 1/72 is finely detailed, with A LOT of very small parts. It's by far the most challenging model I've done so far, and I'm enjoying it so much i decided to start a thread on it. So, first off, I've attached a picture of the model from a few months back. The second picture shows the parts I'm working on now. These are, I believe, ventilation funnels. You can see how small they are. The third picture shows one of the base cylinders (part 40a visible in the second picture) rolled on a straightened, standard paper clip. These puppies are tiny, and there are ten of these to build! Each funnel assembly actually consists of three pieces. Parts 40 and 40a that you can see above, and there is a small (about 1/16 inch) circular piece on a different sheet that forms the back of the funnel. Later I'll post a picture of the model as it is now. It's such fine, tedious work that I've been building other stuff in between when I need a break. I posted some pics of those projects to the gallery for anyone that's interested. Can any of you experienced ship builders tell me how to prevent the indentations from showing between the formers? I'd like to be able to improve on that the next time I build a ship.
