  1. Awesome stuff. Have a look at 'Vallejo Mecha paint' saw a couple reviews a while ago that look super scratch resistant, been meaning to check some of it out myself. Keep up the good work man, it's really coming along!
  2. yooooo - that looks great! Can't wait to see the dome too. Do you know what paints you are gonna use yet?
  3. Hey Guys, Been pretty busy again, but hoping to get this guy sorted by Xmas hopefully. Thor - that's super cool! What were you making it in? Decided to print the gunpod next. This gun was waaaay too long to print on the max height my printer can go to, so had to slice a bit of the barrel off so the barrel alone is now 4 pieces, then glue them together after. There's still a seam line but i'll clean that up before i paint the parts. REALLY happy with how the gun has turned out. The only print for this toy that has come out perfect first try! One think i will need to fix though
  4. Awesome work Valhary! Can't wait to see more
  5. Yo guys, Printed a bit more this weekend, and learning just how to get the best out of it. Need to re-align some things and shift some walls to fit better, so slowly getting there. 2 things i'm finding with the printer is if I set the part up to be printed, some of the parts end up being a bit squished, so actually makes the part smaller on its Z axis than how high i've made it in 3D. It's most noticeable on the arm section below where you see 2 round pegs - they're meant to be a circle, not an oval! And the other thing i'm working out is how to reduce the bumpiness on parts that i add su
  6. Ah amaaaaaaazing. I'm in the love camp for the Stampede, and you're doing a great job man. Keep it up!
  7. Hey guys. Thanks! Super happy with it. Been working pretty late with work again this week, so haven't had too much time to work on it. Really only worked on refining the chest missile piece and how much room I need for the hinge to work. While doing so and actually paying closer attention to reference, I think I've made my chest pieces sadly too wide... And that actually impacts the look and position of the chest missile pieces, and then impacts the shoulder pieces too. They end up over hanging a bit too much, as in, overhanging waay too much hah. For instance if you guys look up some li
  8. Hey Guys, I managed to get a last min ticket i think from someone that cancelled, i just tried my luck on the day, the 'sold out' sign on the website turned to 'select seat' and i got one. It was properly amazing. Didn't realise he's actually quite a funny guy. It was in a small cinema, less than 150 people easy. But first! On the weekend before this talk, they were doing a screening of Macross Plus! In one of their larger cinemas, about 280 people capacity. It was all part of the anime season currently on at the Barbican here in London. The version used was some odd version where the sub
  9. Hey Team! Had a couple test prints on the Saturday - a little SD Laputa bot and a low poly fox. The fox being so high (13cm-ish) took 8hrs! and the Laputa bot took just under 4 in 2 parts. So i was basically printing from when i got up haha. I over sanded the Laputa bot so it got cracked a little bit sadly... hoping to turn it into an advantage though and painting him to look mega old with moss growing on him and everything haha. Exciting update this Sunday though that's for sure! Finessed and printed the whole front chest and hip sections. It worked first go! and slots on to the V
  10. Hah, thanks guys! Getting there.... had a bit of a crazy one at work again last couple weeks so could really only do a bit of work on this this weekend. In very exciting news though, i bought myself a resin 3D printer that's arriving tomorrow (Monday, UK). An Elegoo Mars for anyone that's interested, reviews look fantastic for the price. So what i'm hoping to do is basically work quite iteratively on each part that needs to fit on flush with the toy. If it's a bit off, adjust it and print/try again! This weekend I basically re-did the chest as i wasn't super happy with my first atte
  11. He's so cuuuuuuute. Love your work on this. Interesting on the distribution too... need USB stick that self-destructs after it's plugged into a printer and printed it's thing haha.
  12. Hey guys, So attached where i'm at in blender now. Have done the chest missile plate today, which i think i still need to play with the scale and add the proper opening mechanism, but he's really starting to take form now. Next thing i'll do will be the leg part, which has quite a few complex curves so may take me a while. Then after that it's refine, refine, refine. Software wise, finding while some things are easier in Blender, some things are easier in Sketch, so figuring out the kinks that's for sure. The menu's and submenus are a bit of a maze trying to learn it. Anyway, more next w
  13. Hey! Thanks dudes, so glad you like things so far! I've decided to continue my progress but using a different piece of software called Blender now, for a few reasons. Mainly, it's a lot more stable and easier for doing way more complex shapes. SketchUp isn't great for curves or filling mistakes in. On the VF-5000, honestly most of the time was spent just fixing gaps or fixing bad geometry from certain merging tasks needed to create complex shapes. Where Blender looks like it's got a few more tricks up it's sleeve to make things in a little less of destructive way and more workable. So I'm
  14. Hey guys, long time no see! So been in hibernation a bit, fixing up the house etc. etc. BUT! Been slowly working away on this project. And like with the VF-5000, hoping to post my progress up here every week or so, just to give myself mini/constant goals until it's done. Here's my progress so far. Still in the first stage of making the basic shapes of things, and once i'm happy i'll add in all the panel lines and details. Main issues i see coming up is basically making everything fit the Yamato 1/60 VF-11 itself and locking everything in. Also i think finding the right balance of m
