Ok, dragging this thread up from the ass end of last year...

I thank you for the kind comments all.

Apologies for not keeping up with things and responding to comments, had a few large deliveries from the 'Real Life Excrement Co.' but that's how it is.
Back with this and other things as time goes along. Update would you believe!

Page 5, casting capers and a bit of a rethink about a few parts.

Some of the resin bits for the inside of the cage frames by way of thread pics.

Side shelf parts.

Bottom.



Side walls.





Tops, bottoms and ends.



The door parts came out well and a couple extra are going to get used for a rebuilt passenger pod.

Take care you lot!

Update time,

Pics!

Side pod bottom.



All four bottom and top parts printed.



Passenger pod parts.





Assembled, filled, sanded, primed and detailed.

Looking VERY crisp Ian.

Top restoration work. Those 3D printers are just top drawer mate.

Default Re: Space 1999 44" Eagle Transporter

Thanks fellas, I appreciate it.

SCI-FI, I have a slightly modified Velleman K8200.

http://www.velleman.co.uk/contents/e...576_k8200.html.

It's just a base level FDM printer as is but with a little tinkering/additions to the printer and working the parts to get the best prints I can out of it, it does the job just fine for getting those large bulk bits out.

It can't do horrendously detailed parts very well but that's where the greeblie bins and resin casting comes in handy. In this case, the fine detail parts are resin casts of kit parts from the Revell Gemini as is appropriate for the studio scale model and some greeblies from the FM 1/72nd Falcon and cast.

Which I have a few pots full of of as it goes for turn outs like this.

It certainly saves a fair amount of grunt work and while it's doing it's thing, I can get on with other stuff. True, it can take a long time to get the prints done depending on size and complexity but it works for me.

As an example, the side pod bottom takes about 28 hours each to print but as I said, I let it whir away while eating/sleeping/doing something else at the bench so it's all good

Right then, it's the inevitable resuscitation post to this old thread and we're back on it!
Update page 7, Spine construction begins and display base plan.

http://www.ianlawrencemodels.com/wip44eagle7.html

And the thread pics...or edited highlights so to speak.
Mucho sliced and milled brass tube about the place for the trapezoid shaped spine frames.



Block jigs.





The first frame part that sits in the middle of the spine in bits.



Fitted on to the jig and the bits to make up the frame proper.





Snug fit all round.









Final lining up, solder, repeat for the rest of the required frames and a rub down with some steel wool...





All good, then some long bits of tube with the frames slotted on, fitted to the jig boxes and the lot slapped in the long rail.
All bits dry fitted just for a looksee as plenty of work to be done before the blessed solder gets a look in.



Now the display base had been decided upon by the fella who will end up with this monster.
He sent me a pic of what I think is a Wonderfest entry by I know not whom but it's a very nice build.



This I think is the Warp Eagle lift kit...this one.



Now I know what you're thinking, no way.
The Warp one is for the 1/72nd but this is going to be the 1/24th/studio scale/44" size.

Well this is for the same bloke who had me build that launch tube section for his Salzo 1/12th TOS Galactica viper...

So fuckin' yes way!

20 sheets of A4 paper taped together as I didn't have a big enough single sheet to hand and a bit of pencil scratching took place to get a very rough outline idea of what I'm up against.



The base alone will work out about 48" long, 24" wide and 12" high. With the required lighting to show off the Eagle on the pad of course.
And yep, I'm going to have to mega detail the shit out of it in this scale.

Fun eh?

More to come ASAP gang!

Hopefully the lift with it's simple angles will go together quickly. Are you going to be using brass for the angled tubes in the spine?

Well the overall shape will come together fairly quickly Taz, once all the acrylic sheet cladding is on anyways. The detailing will be another matter but there ya go.
I will indeed be using brass tube for the angles in the spine, the whole framework is brass so still mucho soldering to get sorted lords save us all
