    Nice, how did you get the glossy sheen, did you shoot that with clear?

    Na there's no chemicals that i used on it, it's straight from the A4 glossy photo paper. It says on the packet that it water resistance & that i gave it a try NO effect what's so ever on the ink when wet.My ink jet printer is a Brother 150C it does high glossy paper so i'm happy with the results what it came out. :cool:

    Very nice models! I am waiting for the SR-2 to be done...I see that Steve is doing a great job on it.

    I would hope that the SR-2 will have more details on the texture, like big panels, which are missing from the SR-1 model. The texture from it looks a little bit flat.

    SR2 Update

    Hey gang, I finally got some build time in over the past week.

    A little side note first - Anthony, I don't know who Mordin Solus is, but I assume its related to ME or ME2. Regardless, I'd like to get this thread focused back on the SR2 development and build. Perhaps you could start another thread of your build and link to it here.

    As for progress, I built up the next section, and had similar fit issues as in the first few sections. I'm somewhat puzzled as to the source of the problems, but think I have it narrowed down. This led me to go back and redesign the formers to be more heavy duty. All formers are now designed to be laminated to 1mm card/cardboard. As soon as I have updated sheets printed I'll test build again. I think at that stage I will post what I have for anyone that's willing to test build and provide feedback.

    Meanwhile, here are some pictures. The first shows the original formers and the second shows the hull pieces. The third shows how I put joining strips on the back to replace flaps. The next three show the assembly progressing.

    I'm only allowed six pictures, so, more in a minute.

    SR2 progress 2

    The next couple pictures show an example of the skins that will be layered on top. A single layer of card doesn't show up well. It may need to be at least two layers to give it visual appeal, but with one layer you can still feel the detail :mrgreen:

    I've not yet glued the sections together. I will put on the rest of the skins and post pics when I do. I'm planning on test building and adjusting as I go, so by the time I'm done I'll have two complete models. One for me, and one to sell or give away.

    Progress has been slow since life has been getting in the way of hobby time, but there is progress.

    SJS, slow work is still work and that is some great work there! I'm drooling in anticipation of this one (I've always liked the design of the SR-2 better than the SR-1).

    Anthony, please make your own thread to display your work and don't hijack other people's build threads.

    Awesome update SJS. I've gotten bogged down myself, but that's all part of like. Can't wait to take some time and build this.:mrgreen:

    Hijacking is rather strong for a thread that is all over the place and started by someone who (I believe) has not posted it in it since the original post.

    If you (as in "you" in general ) introduce a new model. start a new thread for your work of art. It makes it easier for others to follow. this thread is wonderful as it has motivated so many people to come together and motivate and inspire. It would be good if everyone who contributed to this thread, went back and reviewed their contribution, and then, accordingly so, started build threads. Separate threads on building experiences of the same model are excellent as they give insight into what each person discovers about the model, and the building process. It will also allow people to express support easier for your own build or design. Everyone in this thread has done an excellent job. This kind of excitement and mutual support is quite right. aussie

    SJSQUIRREL, ANTHONY344, THUNDERCHILD, would you guys break off and start individual build threads, you could use similar titles, i.e. "MASS EFFECT_____(fill in blank here) would tie them together, if you so wished.:mrgreen: It would be really cool if you transplanted your build pics to your so justly warranted individual threads. :yep: This thread could remain as a reference, but it is really all over the place.balloon6

    Your contributions are so excellent, :thumb: It really would be easier for people searching to find the information to your work and to reference it. You'd be surprised how many people do that. it also makes support for each other a little more direct.:inw:

    To F131, after seeing that picture of all your models, on that shelf, I am tempted to ask you where you live, and when are you NOT home!! That has to be one of the top "I want them all" pictures I have seen in quite a while!

    So, upon reading this. let's get cooking!! This thread has given birth to many more threads!! Please keep it comin', this is what it's all about!!

    Don't be so hard on yourself. We're only talking about paper models. The other intangibles, friendship, sharing, learning, well, you're "right on the money" there. The structure just let's everyone read and follow better. That's just the mechanical stuff we try and keep in order, kind of like dusting the room while the artists are painting.

    Yeah, don't worry about it. It was a friendly warning, nothing more, and everybody does it a few times. We don't encourage it, because it dilutes the thread and makes it harder for followers to keep up, but it's not a biggie. :thumb:

    Now I feel guilty for all my SR-1 posts. Oops.
  18. Zathros

    Zathros Guest

    NO! Don't feel guilty at all!! This thread is just chock full of info. No one did anything wrong!! This will just give growing room and continuity. Just housekeeping, "Lift your feet while we vacuum".

    "MASS EFFECT" is so popular, I am sure that it will flourish. Just keep posting, some have started new threads already, hope the others will when they sign back in. Everything is Groovy, Right on, Copacetic. Anthony 344 didn't do anything wrong either, it was not managed properly from the get go, so don't worry about it, Please!
