    Correction fluid? Never heard of that one before (adds bottle to shopping list)
  2. Got to agree with you here Werner, I’ve learnt so much from everyone on the forum.
  3. This is the first time I’ve seen any of these little fellas painted - they look really good. I’m really struggling not to buy a couple myself now!

    Oh this is going to be good.

    So big question - have you flown it around your apartment yet making the appropriate noises?
  7. Moist and squishy, sounds like my attempt at cooking sushi rice! it’s all looking rather good, looking forward to seeing the egg over that new section

    R2 D2 best blue paint

    If it is any help, the Vallejo ultramarine blue you mention seems to be an exact match for the blue plastic used in the Bandai kits of R2: The blue on the rectangular panel on the side and the octagon is the Vallejo, the Other blue in the picture is all kit plastic. Please excuse the rather naff attempt at weathering I was starting there - I’ve learned a lot since then!

    Absolutely outstanding - and more thanks for explaining how you project the 3D model onto a plane. Extracted faces and then ‘nesting’ for cutting!

    That looks superb - thanks again for those links you posted; got sketchup loaded onto my MBPro and it all works. Loving this!
  11. Looks Very effective and yes “Squishy”
  12. That base looks fabulous how did you manage that?
  13. That was a LOT of glue! What the hell had the previous owner been thinking!

    Ooh cheers - I’ll have a look for the 2017 version! I’ve used 3D modelling software in the past (Catia v4) but I’d never heard of sketchup until I saw you using it. I’ll find a link today! quick question though; sketchup Make or Pro?
