I agree! And - good to know that you are still alive!
great job! good to see you posting! any pics of your phone?
@spaceagent-9 I'll see what I can do Jim - I laminated the grill flip-cover so there might be glare off the camera flash...
All the scoring is done and I've cut the parts for all ten cruisers. I started edge colouring as well. I decided to have insets for the grill panels; no individual grill layers though - it would take forever and a day! lol
Thanks for all the +ve comments and likes - as always, they're very much appreciated
laminating the flip antenna grill,.......great idea! I never thought of that!!
You are virtually, a conduit shipyard, for virtual models to find their way into being!
@spaceagent-9 I remembered to take the photo of the phone:-
I just laminated a pic I found online and stuck it onto the flip cover. I tried using black paint for the rest, but it wore off the first time I put it in my pocket. After scraping off the remaining paint I used black insulating tape to cover the silver case, with cut-outs for the camera and side buttons - I wasn't bothered about the front screen so I left it covered with the 'grill'. My ringtone is the Amok Time fight music and the intercom whistle is my message alert.
Other than that, work is progressing slowly on the Jem Hadar cruisers. The wing undersides are starting to come together, with the most time-consuming area being the cutting and application of all the paper joining strips.
The phone looks REALLY GOOD!!!
looks pretty cool! much cooler than a regular flip phone.
Hey, that is a fantastic looking - Farnsworth..!
OK, GREAT COMMUNICATOR!!!!
Does it really flip open like the original?
Thanks guys . It's an old Motorola Razr that has the Star Trek style flip open cover - although the hinge is a bit stiff to do Kirk's wrist twist to open it - lol.
make it heavier, glue a bar to the underside, it will flip open then
The main body is now complete and the parts for the ventral 'pod' are being cut and edge-coloured:-
that's a lot of hard work! we are all rootin' fer ya!!!
(some words later on - I first have to start breathing again)
I'm into the home stretch on these now:-
I will be layering these pods - I just have to work out which parts to inset and which to project.
That is ALWAYS the fun part when it comes to making a model.
