Thanks, guys!

I worked one of 'em in today, now for the other side and then on to more detailing.

Cool Re: Andrew's ISAS Callisto

Nice!,
I hope you don't' get tired of hearing this.
You have a good eye and knack for greeblage!

I had made a 3d mesh based on that concept art about 15 years ago.
I like your ship a lot better so far... I love "old-school" kit-bashing
Can't wait to see the finished version.

Thanks, Scott!

Hi Mike!
Thanks, it is always nice to know what other fellow modelers think, be it criticism or support. Do you have any pictures/renders of your Snark mesh? More views of the Snark would be much appreciated.

Spent the past two days sorting through the detail pieces that have accumulated over the years. Have too many greebles reserved and got to watch out that I don't overshoot the mark. Will be trying for an integrated look with some of the larger pieces and am planning ahead where some of it will go - don't want the recessed panel lines of the freighter plating to vanish beneath a large greeble and reappear again on the other side, that way the large greeble might look like it was added as an afterthought.
So there is not much to see for the past two days of sorting and throwing out besides a pic of some of the detail pieces that are still in.

Wink Re: Andrew's ISAS Callisto

Hi Andrew,

I might have that mesh lying around somewhere. it might even be on some old 3.5 floppy disk which would make it hard to get at, ironically.
I'll snoop around and see if i could dig it up. I had to make it under-deadline in a big hurry so it's really not that good..
... 'always meant to get back to it, and make improvements. I've gotten a lot better at 3D modeling since.

Cheers,
Mike

That would be cool to see, Mike.

Have finished sorting, and am going to build the forward-looking radar next. First picture is the area where the radar will go, second picture is the parts for it.

As always i've failed to do something I wanted to do and somebody has come along and done it better than I could ever hope to. What fantastic job your doing. I made blueprints for this years ago that have gone missing. A fantastic job your doing sir and one to be immensley proud of!

Thanks for the support, if I ever stop building on this model, it sure won't be due to lack of motivation from you guys!

Jay, welcome to Resin Illuminati, my friend!
You're going to fit right in here. Will you be posting your Kelvin build-up? I know many would love to see it.
As to the paint scheme: she's gonna be a basic color of white and then dirtied down a bit, but not too much.

Finished the radar sub-assembly today. Was thinking the little radar prong at the center might break off sometime since the surface to glue it is less than a square millimeter, so I drilled a little hole into the prong about 4 millimeters deep and a hole in the dish, then inserted a stainless steel rod. This way it will be a little more sturdy. Have made the entire assembly removable (that's what the two steel rods in the back are for) and can slide it into and out of the slot. Don't want to accidentally smash it while working and handling the model. There is still lots of work to do and that could happen to me very quickly.
