Give them some RebBull.... That gives everything wings, apparantly... sign1
Those panels you built up look great! This is a great build thread!
Today my R2 become to life...hum sort off
But it works..
I only didn't connect the red LED..
So what you see is green and blue.
now i hope i can install it in the xwing
I embedded the video for you. It's quite easy to do, just stick the number to the right of the equal sign in your link (copy) and Press the YouTube Button (Advanced Mode) and aste" the code between. Looks really great! Just building a larger R2D2 with LED's would substantially enhance the model. Great job!
This takes paper to a different level!
i tried to embed the youtube the first time but i didn't work ..maybe i did something wrong..but it looks great..
next time i try again
what do you mean with a larger R2?..
A larger R2 wouldn't fit the xwing...
ok a more detailed R2 would be very nice but for the x wing now this is i think the max i can build and do.
I like the lit R2 unit. It looks really good.
You did a good job with the video as well.
This is going to be a GREAT model once it is finished.
Today i installed the R2 unit in the fuselage.
And found a problem...i had not acces to the back of the x wing.
So i had to cut some holes in the mainframe to get acces to the back.
Also i made the place of the arduino a little bigger so that he fits..
Now my idea is to route all the cables to the back...connect them there
Maybe i have there more space then behind the cockpit
Wow, that model looks great! Those pictures are absolutely excellent! Classic example of how to do a build thread! Very much appreciated!
I agree. Those are some mighty nice pics. Not "hero" pictures, to be sure, but very clear "behind the scenes" pics. Reminds me of the first "The Making of Star Wars" shows and how obsessively I watched them to see just exactly how they filmed the models.
Very nice build.
The first leds are attached..
I found a little blinking toy where i ripped the leds and electronics out..and installed them for a few fibers..
I found out that i cannot cut the fibers to short..then they are really hard to connect to the leds with hotglue.
And you know that the glue from a hot glue gun is really hot..!? i know that too
but it works...and there are now multiple fast blinking lights in the cockpit.
now the other slow fadng lights.
dnalor, your X-wing looks really nice!
Imcold has made incredible model! :thumb:
today my LEDS came in...and 1 color is wrong...red instead of blue...aarrghh
so i have to look for a fast solution.
that my cockpit can be installed...finally.. it takes much to long.
i found a great idea for lining up the leds with the fibers..
i will show that the nex time.
Als the guns are almost ready, only need the back and the front tips made and installed..
yesterday i glued the first engine to the wing.
They fit nice and enough space for correcting errors.
The engine attached to the wing looks great. This is going to be one unbelievable model!
This is really impressive!
lights almost all attached.
and it looks great..
(hum, that youtube feature thing i can't do that ..For some reason, the color"Blue" was selected, and was in between the YouTube brackets. Only the code, no spaces or anything else can be between the brackets. The code as it appeared if your post, WRxIbHlRXHg ..zathros
Ok.. the pictures is how i installed the leds.
Wow, those Videos are great!! This ship is literally coming to life. Excellent, Thanks for sharing.
Het ziet er geweldig uit, DNALOR... Goed gedaan!
This project is coming together BEAUTIFULLY!!!
Thank you for the small video as well.
This is turning out to be a FANTASTIC model!!!
The cockpit lights are great indeed Good job!
