Hey there. It’s been months since I finished Dewey but I never got around to taking any RFI pics. It was a lovely day in the sun so I figured why not. This was a labour of love for me as Silent running has been one of my favourite films since I was a kid. Sadly Doug Trumbull died around the time this thread was started so in his honour I dedicated the WIP this RFI and Dewey to him. There are some great Dewey kits out there but as I’d recently bought a Mars 2 Printer I wanted to make my own. The drone was made in 3D studio max using movie shots as reference. some old school modelling techniques were also employed during the build. Which can be found here. He was painted using Tamiya acrylics and ammo filters. Sorry it’s taken so long to get the RFI done, I struggle with taking pics thinking they never do the model justice so what with life being too short I figured what the hell and just took some snaps in the midday sun. ☀️ excuse the table cloth. 😂 If you followed the build I hope you liked it and if you didn’t consider giving it a little peruse to see what went into the seeet little dedication. without further ado I give you Dewey# Drone 1 And there you have it. I hope you like him. I enjoyed it so much I’ll have to go do the others. Take care and as always dear chums, happy modelling. Any comments please feel free to post. Johnny.
Dewey #1 Silent Running Modelled in 3D Studio Max & Printed with Elegoo Mars 2Pro Hi guys and welcome to my build of Dewey#1 one of the drones from the film Silent Running. If you don't know the movie there is a brief write up about it HERE. It has been one of my favourite films since I was a kid back in the 70s and 80s. I have been hankering after a kit of "The Drones" for years and have been holding off buying the wonderful looking kits from Destiny models as they are just out of my budget. especially if I want all three. With that said The family unfortunately came down with the dreaded Covid and over the last 8 or 9 days I have been isolated from them and it really bought this film back into my mind. Although I'm not quite as isolated as Bruce Dern was. but I have been feeling a bit like this. So with itchy fingers and an urge to jump into 3D Printing thanks to Alan @hendie & Tony @TheBaron I found myself the proud owner of . MICK ( Mars ) An Elegoo Mars 2 pro and FREDDIE (Mercury) Elegoo mercury plus Quite apt I'm naming my digital friends. 😀 I'm totally new to 3D printing and really have no idea what I'm doing aside from help over thee past week or so from the wonderful folk on Brit Modeller and of course You tube. I have a good Knowledge of 3D Studio Max but rarely get the opportunity to model High Poly robots these days so this is a real departure and treat. I have another build on the go that I'm also adding 3D elements to. The Vintage Airfix Hawker Demon. WIP can be found HERE. Follow along if you fancy it. Well There is no scale in the build notes as I don't really have one. The drones in the movie were about waist height. alas my printer is not so big so Currently the middle section is printing off at around eight or nine CM. we shall see I guess. Here are some cool movie pictures as I have no box to show. I love this one. And this is the little guy himself. I believe this is the destiny models version. Cools isn't he. Hopefully I can get something like. You'll note there is a little light on the top right of his head. I'll need to do some "plunge" moulding for this so I'll ask the help of Bill @perdu to lead my way in the dark. Other than that I'm planning to make a full kit with possible additions of wires etc. Unfortunately I took a Lateral flow test this morning and I have succumbed to the virus. I don't feel to terrible but I'll be stuck in the house for the next ten days. What a to do. 😈 Please join with me and see if I can pull this off. All the best and happy modelling. Johnny.
