Actually I have considered it Now that it's been brought up I may give it a go
Here are some great references.
Fabuloso garn modelo
A cockpit, and a clear canopy.:twisted:That would be the iceing on the cake. I'd say give it a go.:thumb:
Alright here's some teaser photos of the rough draft bucket and instruments cowl.
The 1/72 Hasagawa Fighter's seat and mechanisims behind it are in place for canopy clerance testing as the paper seat will be the same size
See, told you it prints out at 1/72 scale
Janx has recieved the files I mailed him so it won't be long now What moderator wants to accept the files from him to get it up for DL?
Since I was egged on to do the cockpit that will fufill everything on my checklist After this it's just the rest of Janx's bits and she's done
I'll be starting on working up the clean cockpit and make the rest of the parts for it (paper this time ).
Steve0 thanks for those refs
sign1 its great are you going to put the pdf of your model to download because I realy want to givit a try to that model
You know I hadn't even thought of PDF, they are all in Zips atm as BMPs.
Small Missiles completed posting a set to Getter, for testing.
Managed to do a quick model of the launch arm, needs more detail and a way to hold it rigid. Have designed a base but gonna look round for reference and inspiration.
Hee hee, here's a challenge. Build the Super Fighter and that launch-arm in 1/144 scale
Launch-arm looks great as usual
Getter1-Way ahead of you on the 1/144 scale thing ther Getter!:twisted: I've been experimenting on reducing the fighter to just that size. I haven't got it right just yet. But it's almost there! My math skills aren't what they should be!
Janx-That arm looks great! If you want some inspiration for a base, I'll take a couple of more pics out of my Macross DYRL book for ya. The Valks launched from the arms came out of a hangar. It will be easier to post the pic so you can see. Give me a bit and I'll get it up for ya.
Janx here are a couple of reference pics for ya' : The bottom pic shows a close-up of the launch signal board at the top.
Here's what I had in mind for a stand for the arm and fighter:
Janx-I actually could do this if you or Getter would let me know about what size it should be. Preferably designed to print on both A4 and Letter size so's it wouldn't distort when printed. :thumb: Unless you already have something waiting stage left.:mrgreen:
I'm all for it I'm liking the idea above for the launch arm stand
Sweeeet! Thanks Getter I'll do it right now!
Ok the test run for the single seat cockpit is done and only had 3 tiny mistakes to correct
Ugg...... now I got to do the D cockpit
Overall I'm pleased with the results. I didn't make a clear canopy as this is a test unit. I need to make a mold so I can mass produce the canopies in acetate
Anywho, on with the pics!!!
Here's a few more shots
The D version will have to wait a few days as I need to build Janx's new AMM-1 tripe missile paks now Need to re-build the HMM-01 micro missile pods to as the ones I built are way too big
Also I'm debating on whether or not I should do the TV version cockpit? The references I went by and the Hasagawa kit protrays the DYRL ver. cockpit. The TV ver. has quite a few diffrences that could warant another round of design. I'm not wanting to but if there's enough who want the choice I'll do it
Enjoy the pics
Getter-You're killin' me here! You realize, don't you, I now have to scrap what I've done on the 1A, and start over so I can add the cockpit!:cry: That is absolutely freakin' awesome! You've got to be using a CraftRobo for your parts! I would like to see the TV version, but only after you finish the 1D. You and Janx are amazing. :thumb:
I will tackle the TV version but as you say after the 1D Tha one "shouldn't" be too difficult, extend the rear and add another seat but it needs a rear consol to.
Don't scrap that A. Can the nose section be cut off or is it too solid ATM? Either way finish that puppy I want to see the DYRL ver. complete. Only my test units have been built (and recycled ) so I want to see an actual full scheme done
Craftrobo? Forgive my igrorance. Thanks for the kind words to.
CraftRobo is a machine that cuts your parts out for you. I think Kooklik has used it for some of the parts on his 4-8-8-4 Big Boy Steam Loco. Amazingly accurate parts. I know you're not using one just giving you a compliment on your cutting accuracy!:thumb:
Nah I won't scrap it, and no I couldn't cut the nose off even if it wasn't glued as well as it is. That's the best job I've done on the nose to date.
