Read the title of the thread. There's a number there.
Not meaning any disrespect, and acknowledging the experience you may have but 1:48 only means ratio to me. I was wanting to know the size of the model shown, I have no idea what the full size version would be, so can't picture the model size from that. A really rather innocent question that could be ignored I guess but what I can't understand is the impolite attitude some members here show towards others.
Innocent question, innocent answer. You asked for the scale. In scale modeling, which this is, 1:48 _is_ a scale. Plastic car models are mostly 1:24 or 1:25 scale. And so on. I'm sure you'll catch on.
OK but at 1:48 scale, if the actual vehicle is 48 feet long then the model would be 1 foot. If the actual vehicle is 96 feet long then the model would be 2 feet and so on. So unless one knows the size of the actual craft the ratio doesn't help. That is why people sometimes place an object of known size beside a model for scale. It was in that respect I used the term. But you are right....I'm catching on.
Perhaps in the download section you could put a cube or something we could all use as a standard.
You are doing a fantastic job with this model wedge. It looks like it's cast from plastic. I wish I could get my lines as straight as yours.
Also, I am ashamed that I had to do a Google search to find out what this ship was. I had never heard of it before.
I promise to arange some photos with something to compare with. maybe the next time , so don´t argue I´m not be using your "cubes" , because it really harms the photos
jparenti: if you want to know the story of moldy crow , I heartily recommned you the Dark forces series (pc game - Dark forces and Dark forces II Jedi knight)
I'm a big fan of the games, but always thought the Crow was rather ugly for a design (like the A-10 Warthog, ugly but effective).
I'm curious where the references for the inside were when this model was created. I don't recall there being many clear shots of it in any of the games.
Funny thing, too, I just recently reinstalled JK(DF2) and MOTS and played through them this past week! Talk about coincidence, me checking the forums and seeing a thread on the Moldy Crow!
Nice work on the hull, Wedge; the paintjob is awesome And I'm curious how will you cope with the wings
This is one of my favourite posts, I eagerly await each new post from Wedge. I used to play the Dark Forces games, I especially liked DF2, it was very atmospheric and the Mouldy Crow always looked really great on the CGi sequences.
Love this project.
You are absolutely right Julian . For me is the DF 2 the best game ever. I´m SW fan since I can see :mrgreen: I was 13 when I first saw dark forces II. It was my first walking opportunities in Star Wars universe and I can remember how much I loved every square meter of the game
Thank you all for supporting - there is another small progress
Holy cow! That's amazing work on those underside details. I especially love the intakes and the smoothness of the curves, but that doesn't mean the gun is any less impressive!
Very nice and jaw dropping to see that beauty. And Good Job to you MFH for releasing it. Where can I find this model?
Another progress is the radiator and the main wings gripping . It is made from 1,5 mm wire and I hope it will work. The wire is held-in-place by the sello tape , so it is only at the beginning .
Good work! I hope the wire will be able to support the wings, too
so I´m working on the strboard fin engine. It is not ready yet , but I decided to post some photos for those who are interested in this build anyway.
Joined this thread late - great job wedge!
I never finish anyth sign1
