That engine is astounding!!
Thank You, wish you can see it live, I am realy happy with it. This test build worked OK, so I am adding it to my resource thread.
Little progress. Just to know I am working on it. Regularly but weeeeery slowly. Not much time lately.
All four engines done.
The level of detail that you are putting into this model is PHENOMENAL!!!
The time, effort, energy, and work that you are putting into this model is really shining through!!!
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!
Wow! Rhaven is right, these are awesome. Excellent!
excellent work, machine perfect or even better!
Thank you gluers .
Another update - more details completed. I designed them to be made from paper, but at the end I used kitchen wooden sticks because it was faster (I will add paper version to resource).
Wood is unrealized paper.
This thread is very inspiring!
Glad you like it.
Another part of engine in progress:
This is an incredible build and the love and detail put into it (and it's add-on's) are inspiring!
I was just wondering, from the pictures I can see some kind of reflection/gloss on the engines. Is it made with fixture spray or some kind of lacquer? Or is it just a special sort of paper (photo glossy)?
No lacquer applied. Surface is not so glossy in reality (photos makes it much more prominent). It is printed on coated silk paper for laser printing (little glossy).
At the end I will probably apply matte lacquer on some parts. Will see
First carefully prepare all pieces and wings will be there before you know it
You are the first person that I have seen using a laser printer as succeed. Usually, laser printed parts crack and flake.
No problem with cracks or flake.
I use printer setting for the thickest paper, so printer bakes the toner at the highest temperature it allows. Maybe that is why it holds on the paper realy good.
Only time when it cracks was, when I cutted thin strips (details on enines for example). I solved it by making the cut few times veeery lightly. Paper strips then do not curl or twist as you cut and does not crack.
Another piece of puzzle.
First half of engine will be ready soon
Missed a couple of "Likes". You have really put these parts together with nice straight, sharp edges. Great craftsmanship.
These look good!
