New Edwards Test Pilot

New Edwards Test Pilot (9/15)



  1. I will be away from home, so this is my last project of the summer. Hope you like this rockin' pair! Mylene's Bass Guitar courtesy of a kind pro on Artstation https://www.artstation.com/artwork/E3Rge Models from from Uta Macross: Smartphone Deculture. This is fan art. No sale or distribution.
  2. Thanks. I do have the aperature icon on my camera and video. Let me see how it looks. My photos suck!!!!! These phone cameras give icons, but they don't say what they are. I also have ISO and a couple other unamed things. So for a noob like me, I have no idea. Any idea how to do black background "night' shots. The type where the object looks like its in the dark but all the details are clear.
  3. Yes sir. Did I forget to mention?
  4. I have hip-hop Minmay and Ballerina Minmay if you want (which reminds me, I need to do that one). Yes, grumble, grumble, I would like to learn how to put the Big Arrow and other details. But when I am learning new stuff, I like to get some quick wins. I'm at the tip of the ice berg. 3D Printing is insane. I'm using Elegoo Mars 2 regular version. I didn't know what I was getting into, so I got the cheapest and best reviewed I could find. Elegoo also has great customer service. I'm sold. But I recommend the Mars 2 Pro version for the exhaust (it's important for clearing out the air and humidity, which causes the FEP sheet to stick to the LCD). They also have a new Mars version coming out, so if reviews are good, you might want to consider that.) There is a learning curve, but it's doable. PM me for the details.
  5. Minmay Project Cont'd... Green Pokka-Dot Dress version. This is probably the last Minmay, unless I find some cool files to play with. I'm not interested enough in the available Crossover stuff to go through the trouble. And this one was a test to see if it was possible to fix and print from strange files . There is an artist at DeviantArt making Leiji Matsumoto mesh xps files. Not sure what they are meant for, but this opens up a lot of possibilities, because there are very few classic anime 3D files out there. It was a lot of work to fix the file, but well worth it.
  6. Grumble, grumble, yes I need to do better than those Harry Potter glasses I ripped. Maybe I can pull and stretch them. Here is a different type. This 3D printing stuff is a serious addiction. The possibilities are endless, even without experience. This guy did a Zeta Cockpit for the first time designing anything. I need to learn how to do this with Z-Brush. I'm really struggling with Blender.
  7. Dang MT, you're putting on a clinic! Lathing and forming skills are getting better and cleaner. Now where have I seen that before? Good little drill when you don't want the power of a Dremel. But the torque can be weak, if it stops and wont start, I plug it into the power cord for it to reset itself. I also use a Dremel white cotton sanding tip to clean model parts. But very gently. Oh no, tell me you're not going to add all that PE. You're going to need really small fingers for those. Good luck!
  8. This is where I am with M&M. Comments? Of course we are not going to be perfect, but a nudge here or there can make a difference. (The necks aren't joined to the body yet, so don't worry about that.)
  9. I always wanted 1/3000 valks for my SDF-1. A whole fleet on the way!
  10. Your painting is GREAT at that scale. Come out a bit with the camera so we can get a fuller look of the two at a better scale. Hmmm... I don't know. They all wear the same uniform and the same helmet, right? So if you paint them differently, that could work. I can't design anything from scratch, but I can do some things. What changes would need to be made to the base Hikaru sculpt? Let me know and I will work on it. Max - He would be just like Hikaru, right? Maybe I could thin the body, but keep the head the same, or slightly thinner. And add aviator glasses. Milia - She would be more delicate, thinner and shorter than Max I guess. And then there's the bossom issue... (Now googling "How to extrude body parts" )
  11. These are separate objects for printing the platform for my flight deck. It's just a mock up for now. But some elements could be joined for printing.
  12. Thanks guys. I appreciate the nice comments. Since you're not bored yet, this is what I'm up to.
  13. Sorry to tell you, no intelligent life detected down here. If I can do it, anyone can (any hobbyest, I mean).
