I am glad to see that you are still working on this project! I was hoping to see it completed.

I'm not sure I like the warping. Thinking of using cardboard on interior, which would send me back to Rhino for the pattern. Suggestions anyone?

Using Cardboard,cutting out squares for the vents would be prudent, and make for a stiffer models, maybe even add some formers!! ;)

Yes, Z. That's what I'm thinking of doing. I'll be on vacation for a week, so I'll probably have fun updating my model in Rhino with a inner cardboard layer.

The back wall, however, is coming along nicely. I'm using very little Elmer's Glue All; only enough to provide tackiness between parts. Align the parts on the cutouts. Lift up a edge and then use Scotch Super 77 as the final adhesive. Then press the hell out of it.

B.0.1 & B.1.1
IMG_0289.jpg IMG_0291.jpg

B.2.1 glued to B.1.1

B.3.1 glued to B.2.1
IMG_0293.jpgIMG_0294.jpg

Some of the Scotch spray glue got on the printed side of B.0.1. I was able to rub off the glue without taking any color off. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

Adding in the badges; B.0.11, B.0.12, B.0.13

Got that great two-level effect the Knights Who-Formerly-Said-Ne wanted.

Looks like I have to fix B.0.12's (name badge) dimensions.

Not really a rip. More of a tribute. Besides, here's the real inspiration.

I forgot to mention, I loved these comic strips you posted, they are hilarious. I also Love this model you are making. It will definitely become a classic, and since I do build computers (I've never purchased a "ready made" computer, always built them from scratch. I would be interested in building my next one with your template as a reference . I have a small machine shop, and a sheet metal brake, so it would be easy for me to make this out of steel or aluminum, probably easier than the paper one!!

Excellent progress and subject matter. Extremely Impressive............though now that I know you too are a Rhino user, I will keep reminding you that we know that you are "One of us, One of us, Gooboo Gabba, one of us"!!!! (Excellent movie by the way!

<headdesk>Used too much Elmer's Glue All...water based...of COURSE it'll warp.</headdesk> The back wall turned out perfect, so I think I've got the method down; use just enough Elmer's to be tacky, put pieces together, lift corner and spray Super 77 between parts.

Still need to make minor mods, though. I was concerned with weight. That's why B.1.10 & B.1.11 look that way. That design decision definitely contributed to the B.0.9 & B.0.10 looking wavy.

I can have cardboard pieces shaped like B.3.4 & B.3.5 which will solve issues with attaching the case front to the back and increases the glueing surface for all the joints in the case back.

So close the holes in B.1.10 & B.1.11 and add pattern for cardboard pieces.

Cool. Just make sure it doesn't walk off.

God, I hope so.

Thanks and agree on Freaks. Back in the dark days of the first DVD my wife and I would harass video store clerks by asking about three films; Freaks, The Terror of Tiny Town and Wizards. That was fun while it lasted.

There are many B&W movies that would just scare the pants off of people who think they can see anything. The thing is, these old movies come back to in your dreams, and everyone dreams in Black and White!!!

I’ve got the cardboard bulkhead parts designed, papakuraed & PDFed. I’m going to build the Banana base to see if my design can handle the extra weight.
