3D Model Request - Missile/Ordnance for DX toys

If you are ok to drill 1mm holes, you can use the "Station4" pylons. I can't see how to make removable hardpoints on wings apart using "station4" concept. 

Just noticed those Station4 pylons can't accept your triple pylon for the triangular missiles. I suppose I'd need the "female" hardpoints that are on the 31 already to accept the "male" parts on the triple pylons.

Brilliant.

The FUD price reduction took effect this morning and I was almost shocked by it. The prices were almost halved. 

I have put all the missiles with the FUD option. The pylons will always need the strength and flex of WSF though.

Made up the PaCSWS-2C variant today, it was trickier than expected because it is not vertically symmetrical. Since I have access to the Black HP Strong and Flexible beta test, I will order a couple of these in this material and see what this HP printer is all about :)

I have put the 2C next to the 1G variant for size comparison.

I didn't realize those two things were different.

Only have time to snap fit. I have to remove the notches/circular nub-like in the pylon since it is very hard to attach the missiles. I don't know though when will I have time to complete it.

 

Question on the color of pylon, any suggested Tamiya spray color that would look good?

Nice! I also noticed that the tabs were a bit too tight on my PaCSWS-1G. So I have slightly reduced the thickness on the model now (0.1mm just to tell)

Color wise, seriously white is too hard to color match, I just gave up on my VF-1X++ and went with different shades of gray. Just prime it with Tamiya grey primer, then heat up a white primer spray and spray from a 50 - 80 cm distance a very light mist of white primer over it. Repeat the white until you got too different grey shades and finish it with a gloss coat TS-13.

You also have the AS spray cans, with military aircraft colors, but grey primer is cheap and ok!

Receive the TMM and PaCSWS-2C missiles and quickly assemble them. This is the new Black HP WSF material, I did just a bit of sanding, no primer, no paint.

looking really good. how is the new material doing? is it worth the cost?

Yeah the new material is really a step forward for 3D printing: sharper details than the classic WSF for only an additional 1.00$ 

i can't wait when they fix the beta test issues and make it available for purchase

My new favorite color is officially light gunmetal aka TS-42. Added the canopy to the PaCSWS-2C.

Excellent! Now we just need a "how-to" guide and I'll be set for Mirage!

Don't worry, ask anything you want to know "how" and I will gladly help. If you are concerned about the assembly, everything is as simple as clipsing the missiles on their pylons, and then clipsing the pylon into the wing tabs.

I also liking the look of the 3 x pointy missile. Unfortunately, I need to get my sh*t together and work on what I bought previously before I can buy more. Hopefully, the new materials will be available by then.

Just a heads-up, seems that Shapeways aren't printing the 101s or their pylons, SWS-2 or DX single pylons in WSF, right now at least.

I saw a rejection notice and couldn't believe it, do you know which shapeways is in charge of your area? USA or Europe?

I will have a ticket to see if this is their system error. But if they really need a new design because of an internal political change, I won't be able to fix it before 2 weeks. Sorry

Waiting for Mirage's Siegfried, then I'm ordering missiles!

The solution will take more than a few email exchanges... I will need to give a closer look at both the design and to shapeways "new recommended sprue size".

@Xigfrid Thanks for the update, sorry it's turned into work for you. Speaking as someone who missed out on the 1P missiles, I want you to know that it's appreciated!

Goddamn shapeways ingineers who rejected my sprues because are "only" 1,98mm thick. But when you design a 2mm diameter sprue with sketchup, the tube is faceted and the corners are 2mm far apart but the flat of the faces are only 1,98mm. 

this is as if they suddenly decided to make the minimum sprue diameter would be 2.1mm instead of 2mm, so most of the previous models will fail now

That sucks. Is this an issue for only one region, or is this across the board for everyone?

Seems the USA region is affected, but I had lately someone from the support to who I could explain the issue and looks like they will loosen the rule a bit. Crossing fingers.

@Xigfrid Just got an email from Shapeways, it looks as though they've reinstated everything but the PaCSWS 2C in WSF :) Thanks for that! Is that last one requiring more work or has it just slipped the net?

Edit: also sent Shapeways a reply asking the same, so don't be surprised if they've already fixed that by the time you look.

Edit 2: They've reinstated everything now, will let you know once it's all printed!

I am glad they made it up for you. I still can't understand how they can roll back their rules like that.

Is it ok to request, even if it's not a weapon? If so, how about those side wing holder clip for VF-19Advance's Boosters? Can it be done ala-Arcadia's YF-19?

Should be doable.  The tricky part is the booster clip to the pivoting wing clip. Wow. Just noticed it's been almost a year to the day since you wished for this.

It worths a look, let me know if you have better pictures on how the Arcadia version clip locks to the wing.

I'm desperate. Hahaha! :lol:  If only I know how to do 3D stuff. ^_^

Hey Xigfrid. Thanks! Will PM you a clear pic later. I'm sure everyone will grab one once they see it's really doable. It's a shelf space saver. ;)

Edit: Also, just adding this one in. Since 3D print comes in black plastic, we don't need to paint it since it will blend well with the VF-19Advance black stripes.
