    Hey All
    update time again, I have now completed the head design with movement up and down and left and right.
    On the top of the head is a search radar disc, a lot like the AH-64 longbow as a means of defence.

    Next part is the main body to house the head and arms and ect.
    This will take a bit of time to get right in the way that I want to look and work.

    Hi All

    update time, the updates that I have now completed is the cab with the head assembly that will now go in and out, 3 redesigns later but it is now done.

    Here is a cut away of what the head movement is going to look like.

    Update time again.

    I can say now that the design work for the first of 3 phases is now complete.
    Phase 1: SAM (transformer)
    Phase 2: Weapons trailer
    Phase 3: Weapons.

    What I am going to do next is to start flatten out the parts into patterns and build the transformer frist then complete the 2nd and 3rd phase of the project.
    The renders are not the best as my laptop was taking a time to get the render complete but the pictures will show what the model will look like at the end of the day baring a few extra parts that I have not added to the design yet.

    Hi all

    Bit of an update, at the moment I am busy flatting all of the parts for the model and I am about 85% complete with that part, I have not as of yet set any pages up.

    What I have done is to start with the assembly drawings mostly on the lines to start getting the model part pages setup in the correct order and also to see if there is extra parts needed to keep the model strong when the model is completed.

    here is a 4 sample page of where I am at this moment in time.

    :surprise:

    That's brilliant!!
    What program do you use to create those assembly drawings...?
    I've always had a thing for tech manuals, and those pics would fit the "Haynes Manual - Elite" editions...... ;)

    Thanks, with Autodesk inventor you create your design and do the assembly of your design and from there you setup a presentation of how it all fits together. From there you insert it into drawing with all normal bells and whistles and you get the drawings that I have just shown.
    Does take a bit of time but it is worth it for double checking
