Fantastic work as always Jay !

I'm always amazed at how neat your finish is all of those panels look perfect and in the last pic with it in your hand it could easily be mistaken for and injection moulded kit !

Attention to detail is also spot on, this is shaping up very nicely mate.

Don't fear the painting either just think about the look you want to achieve and before you get out the airbrush take a bit of time to plan how you are going to achieve it and you will be fine. If you get stuck or need any advice just shout out Jas and between all,of us we can sort you out.
But I've seen your paintwork and I do think you sell yourself a little short as the stuff I've seen looks pretty dang good to me.

I'm in for the ride mate and can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for this.

Pete

PS

I can't help but think that the guys behind the design of the claptrap were inspired by this

Finished the back panelling today.
I thought that a few pics of how I create and cut parts on my CNC would be useful.
Here's the reference image


First make the 2d shape


Then add the depth, direction & cutter size etc....


Then run a test cut:

Cutter: 1.2mm end mill with a single flute
MAC3 program on a basic Windows PC


A little bit furry but easily cleaned up & 30seconds later:


Cleaned up and dry fit:


Will spray the little door chevrons separate otherwise masking will be a right pig.

Out of curiosity I visited the website from the actual supplier of those paints (flyer in box from Amazon)
To compare prices and was a little shocked Check it out

Tamiya acrylic 10ml pots from Amazon £2.69 each + postage and the same from Wireless Madness only £1.49!!
Hope the links helps chaps?

CNC machine is very cool mate !

What are those rivets made out of Jas ?

They kind of remind me of those edible cake decorations but a lot smaller

£2-69 is a major rip off but £1-49 is pretty good. I think they are £1-69 in Hobbycraft and Gunze paints are 2 quid each

The rivets are tiny half balls (if that makes sense) used in paper & nail art / craft and made from some sort of plastic that welds with polystyrene cement.
A bag of 1000s is only a couple of quid from eBay & come in loads of sizes 1mm - 10mm
