ok, so there is one on each side then?
There 'should be' one on both sides. Notice that the star scaring is inside a circular object and not on a random plate.
I like to eat all the food....
Unless of course it's firing parallel to the hull. You could say it's a pop-out thruster for combat maneuvers which rotates to fire in multiple directions and which pulls in for noncom duties. Such a thruster would scar the hull paint in that pattern while at the same time not appear as a thruster as we know it (like the Sulaco's engine system) and it would also run hot, so the top disc would be burnt as well. The top part could also pop open to direct the thrust 90 deg. perpendicular to the hull for side-to-side maneuvering.
And as you say, it's sci-fi. *We* get to make up our OWN logic! :twisted:
This will be a Behemoth of a Paper Model when completed. Great progress Jan!
I think that the black point on the side is some sort of rocket silo or so...:mrgreen:
anyway....here is a small new progress:thumb:
front part of the upper structure is done....the front of the ship is now prepared for antenna array:twisted:
direct side view
zoom of the new part...the white places represents the antenna array base:twisted:
and back detail...
Really beautiful !
This looks to be coming along quite nicely Jan.
I agree, quite nicely! I can't wait to see it completed, and then I may download and print my own copy to build up. :mrgreen:
Every time I look at the incredible panel work on this beast, I am floored! You really captured the 'feel' of Aliens with the texture on this ship. :thumb:
Absolutely! The texturing is amazing!
There, ya go, it's not a thruster, ftl and we still use thrusters? Rocket launcher works for me.
Amazig work :thumb: but where is the Dropship :mrgreen: No, just a joke!
Can you say, how many sites the model has up to now and how many it will have?
I am on 46 pages in this point.
If this number represents 23% of the whole model ,then the final papercraft will have 200 pages of A4 ...or so....
IF this is not suitable for u, then u can make model in 75% of MY scale.
Its easy...put 2 sheets on one paper..like this:
Will it be released as a single unit or in sections?
Its no joke
So do I however when I last stocked up on the UHU tube glue, I also got a bottle of UHU glue which it turns out is different in that it is 'solvent-free' and does cause warping when drying on larger surfaces...so it may pay to watch your UHUs...
you didn´t understand the joke :cry:
Okay 200 Pages jawdrop you are a tree killersign1
So we better plant some trees while building this monster - just in case your sibiling wouldn't kill us ;-)
I bought a second printer for this bad boy!
I`m working in the printing business, and at the moment I`m very, very happy that I have free access to a Xerox Docucolor 250 digital offset printing press... :mrgreen:
