Looks good to me!
i'm still thinking about the lights...
i don't know if there is any space for the leds and cables..
so i have to build first the cockpit...and look then were to hide everything..
i build a fast half helmet for checking the size of the figures..
and i think they are large enough...
So that's positive
Now the complete figure.
The cockpit is going slowly..i designed the buttons and made the layout..
Now i have to glue them and do a little layering for the 3d effect.
i also found some great plastics for the windows..but that is for the final.
Mmmmm... Maybe the pilot has a large enough 'cavity' to firmly insert the Arduino into .............
If it's big enough, you could shove all sorts of things up there .......sign1
i think i need al the space to get a skeleton inside the man..
Somehow 80gr paper is a little flimpsy..but with the lack of some better paper..
i have to make something to carry it.
And i know for sure that these 2 pilots will be the only ones build like this..
because DAMN those are dificult and packed with little stuff .......and that is really true.
I look forward to every post you make!!
Looks like another great build from dnalor!
AARGGHHHH who came up with that idea of those pilots?...
thank god i don't need to build them complete..
the first pilot test fit..
i finally found again some carton which was almost large enough for the outer shell of the cockpit.
cut it up a little made a mesh/grid for the front of the speeder installed it looks nice.
installed the cocpit and to cut a lit off it because he was to large..
and I thought your X-Wing was big... WOW is an understatement.
This is looking great!
today i've glued my own custom cockpit side panels into place...
And i like them
now i only need a front- and backview panel.
Have you considered making a full size cockpit! I know you could. A personal man cave, you get home from work, close the cockpit, and watch TV in your air conditioned Cockpit, put four wheels and make a Velomobile, you'd make a fortune off of it!!
You are doing a GREAT job on this.
It is really coming together nicely.
My wife would hate that...
come home from work and go sit in a man coccon ......
a tv...airco...microwave incl a fridge with all in 1 ready meals...
and working on the second pilot..
i still don't like this
But somehow the folding gets better
BTW, do you colour the edges?
somethimes...when they are very clearly visible..
but normally everything is grey....and then you don't see it that much.
And some error's with glueing i mask with some colour
