  1. I've drawn up a 1/144 scale Permit/Thresher prop for the Modelsvit kit: This corrects the really bad blade shape on the kit part and is a 1:1 replacement.
  2. Yeah, pumpjet. Test article for the new Russian Borei class SSBN as I understand it.
  3. New product coming along. I've done initial prototyping and a second print as well to hone the part interfaces and plan on a third this weekend to hopefully finalize.
  4. Suffice to say the R4360 is on hold for now. I just ran out of steam. Though don't fret, I will return to it. At the moment I'm freeing my mind with a fun "what if", creating the M1A2 Abrams III as envisioned in the role-playing game Twilight: 2000.
  5. Mike class SSN, 1/350: Papa class SSGN, 1/350: USS Jack, SSN 605, 1/350: All now available in the usual place.
  6. Quite excited by today's announcement of the 1/350 Tullibee!
  7. So initially I was thinking I'd design the kit so you could either build it into the Accurate Miniatures/Special Hobby F2G or display it standalone with an engine stand. But I think that's going to increase the cost way out of proportion (I'm already worried about what it's going to be), so I'll probably end up doing two with the priority for now going to the kit version. I'll work out the details for the standalone kit later.
  8. Just an update, I'll post a screen grab tonight when I get home. I'm still plugging away on the R4360. I've made some test prints of the cowling though haven't proceeded enough with the engine itself to test print any aspect just yet. Came across some drawings that I wish I had had earlier and I changed just about everything engine side. While this has nearly reached give up on life stage considering the time it's taking, at the end of the day I'm drawing it for me and I'm dreaming of visions of sticking R4360s on everything, "Here's an R4360 for you (Hellcat), and you (Spitfire) and you (M
  9. Oz Mods has a 1/350 Oberon coming out: http://www.ozmods-kits.com/ship-kits-1350
  10. Yes, good points. I've drawn the R4360 to be componentized with 28 individual cylinders, engine block, gearbox, and supercharger housing all separate, which gives me many more options for orienting.
  11. If I was better at it I'd probably be designing into an assembly. But I'm drawing everything within one studio. Just way easier for me that way.
  12. What printer are you using? I've successfully printed to .2 mm wall thickness on the Anycubic and pretty sure I could go smaller. I haven't even attempted to push it as I port a lot up onto Shapeways and .3 mm is thinnest they'll accept, so I tend to design everything to their design guides regardless of where I print it. That being said, I drew the pushrods on the R4360 I'm drawing to .6 mm, again, to accommodate Shapeways (they differentiate between supported and unsupported, .6 mm being the thinnest they'll accept to unsupported, .3 mm for supported):
  13. Still plugging away. I've decided I won't be doing the cooling ducting/shrouding, but will be doing the inlet and exhaust plumbing. I printed the cowling and it came out ok and some modification will result (it seemed to need a bit of reinforcement). So I still have to sort the exhaust plumbing, detail the supercharger housing, and then work on the integration to the F2G kit. That's going to take some back and forth tinkering as I'll have to work out the easiest way to execute it to keep the modeler from jumping through hoops and guessing what I intended.
