    Ouch. I'm sure your finger is much better then it looks but I'm hoping it heals up fast.

    Yeah, snowblowers and hands don't mix! Makes it difficult to use a blade.

    Build pics

    Okay guys, I got the go ahead from Getter1 to post these pics in the thread. This is a work in progress of the VF-1A from DYRL. Getter was more than generous in sending me this one for a beta build of sorts. While I did stall on it the building shall resume shortly! This will have the Strike pack with the cannon on the right side when done.

    Weird not getting auto updates on this thread, didn't realise so many replies had come winging in.

    If any one can get me screen caps of the launch arm I'll give it a go and try to get one sorted for this project.

    Hey janx, I have the DYRL movie book that has the screen caps and 2 line drawings of that arm. The screen capture shots are too dark to be usable, but the line drawings might help. The only problem is I don't have a flatbed scanner!:curse: I think 57townsman has the same book AND a scanner. I sent him a PM about this same that same thing a few days ago, maybe a little peer pressure might help?:twisted:

    57townsman-I hope I didn't overstep my bounds here. Just rying to give Janx a little more info for the arm. He would design it WAY better than I ever could.

    Janx, I had a thought here, I took pics of the two line drawings from my book. While not as good as a scan maybe they can help with the overall shape and placement of parts? As far as color goes, I can pull my movie out and look plus take a look in the bookwith a bright light.:oops: I wish I could be of more help here.

    I whipped up a GU-11 Gunpod in the closed position last night to mount on the Fighter model. I printed out the un-textured version for the test unit. fits and looks good, however the stand for a gear up model will have to be notched to accomidate the Gunpod.

    Getter, how do you roll those tubes so well? What weight paper are you using for that? :confused: I have 65lb cardstock I used on my model, but I just can't seem to get the rolling quite right. What I'm saying in a backwards way is, you kick A** when it comes to building!:thumb:
