    Hey Tirta! Long time no see buddy! How are ya?

    Paragon, very nicely done. I'd vote for this one to get a model of the month! Taking into consideration the size and the speed of which you're doing this. It looks awesome!

    Hey Paragon, nice work. Did you develop this one the same way as your "Designing without CAD" method?

    Yes, it is jaybays Galactica.

    I'm working on the engines now, then I'll make the second flight pod.

    Awsome! I think i will try it with my Galactica too (ok, first print another one).

    Maybe you can help me with this: Whenever i print the Galactica it´s not grey, it looks kind of blue.

    Ran into this problem myself.

    Go through your printer setup routine for installing a new cartridge and go through the head alignment process. Pay close attention to the line of blue.

    Fixing this put me back on track.

    I've seen a couple of Galacticas built this way (ribbing built up externally) and the results are always most impressive.


    However, the model builer/nitpicker in me always notices the same problem. You're building OUT from the base layer, when the real detail recesses IN.

    If you see what I mean?

    What we need is somebody like nothing or jaybats to go back to the 3D models and pull the skin back inward so that the "shell" you build the details out on is smaller, and so your end dimensions/shapes are the same, but the detail now holds a more accurate layer-pattern.

    Like I said, it's a nitpick, but one I think about many times when I contemplate starting my BSG 1.5' I printed out long ago.

    Well.... He may have had...

    I, on the other hand, do have. hehehe

    My wife loves to build papermodels and scrathbuilds.:thumb:

    Actually, we're both artists...

    She's also a dollmaker.

    (come to think of it... I don't think we'd be married if we didn't have modeling or art in common. sign1 )

    AWSOME build BTW Paragon!:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:
