Helloooo Foo and Others :).

Odd thing to see that my last post related to Cobra scratch is dated february... 2010. Nice ;).
Anyway, I guess in case of any normal and regular modeler (which I'm not) it wouldn't be much of the progress, but in my case - it is :P.




Last time it was just a hull. So... ;)

If it's anything like your others, make sure it's castable! Do want!

How did you generate this drawing?


Really inspirating work, man!

I'm afraid this one won't be castable. But I've found some caster contact on last local modeling show, and I'm going to turn my next future project into resin kit. At least I'm going to try.

Hell, why don't you post the pictures: This stuff is awesone!

Well, actually first I started to write a new post in old thread... Perhaps that would be wiser. But some strange, red font hint (the one about 120 day old last post or older) made me otherwise :P.

How did you generate this drawing?

In fact my 3D modeling skills are rather basic. It's enough for simple architectural modeling, but definitely NOT enough to create forms like this one. So... I had to trust my knowledge about geometry and just draw plans in 2D in AutoCad...
What's more, I have that strange little feeling that learning more about digital modeling will make me reaching for 3D printing and other similar techniques. Of course it's great, specially for resin kits production, but kills the spirit of scratchbuilding a bit ;).

Glad to hear You still like it Guys ;).
I wish I could say that from now on progress will be more regular, but I don't want to make any hollow promises (or whatever it's called in English) ;).
Anyway at least I have determination to accelerate this build.

Yeah, I know - everyone was waiting for an update eagerly.  :razz:

But seriously - I've managed to overcome lack of time and motivation, and never been working on this one such a systematic way. I think it may have something to do with being father... ;). I am aware those pictures don't show as much as they could, due to primer almost completely sanded off, but anyway progress is huge. Main components and their paneling are done and I'm in the process of detailing.
