Very cool drawing! This is going to be so cool :-)

Yeah Ted and the way those guys do it is a real inspiration for me too [smile]
Although with 3D scanners and printers that's kinda all changing now.
I really do want a 3D printer, custom designed greeblies, how awesome would that be ? [biggrin]


Cheers Fabian, the one thought going through my mind is that all fancy presentation is all very nice and everything but please gods, don't let me screw up the paint work !!
I'm tempted to give it to Pete to make sure I don't screw it up, hehe [biggrin]

Anyhow Fabian, I'm looking forward to seeing more progress on the Ma.K.
when is your next installment ? [smile]

Second set of handlebars came out just as well as the first one Paul ( very tidy work on an intricate build mate )

I like the look of the little guy you have on there already, he just looks like he goes with it but Deffo have play with sculpting one as it sounds like you have some neat ideas ting on in the think tank.

Love the blueprint too and I could definitley see that as the box top for an Ma.k kit

Cheers Pete,

Had a couple of dicey moments with the second hand grip but got lucky
and caught them just in time, slightly annoyed the main wires are a parallel
millimeter off line, oh well, I'll make it look deliberate [biggrin]

I'm still at the umming and arring stage re. the figure and am open to
suggestions and ideas, still considering the Fujimi pit crew as you get 12
1/20th figures, with a variety of legs and arms and separate heads too ... [smile]
Not sure, I need someone to argue the toss with me [biggrin]

Anyhow I see Italeri have brought out a 1/48 OH58D Kiowa which with a
1/48 Harrier would be good for a 1/16th version. some cool figures for 1/16 [smile]
... and a 1/12 version with the Academy 1/35 OH58D Kiowa etc.

Yep the Ma.K. stuff has been a real influence on this design, as well as Star Wars and WW2 [smile]

I'd be stealing money to buy a dedicated computer, raw materials, etc. O M G  I'd go crazy.

I have just been thinking about creating some nice plugs for vacuform work---then you mention a 3D printer and that bubble over my head popped---BOOM!
Well, one day virtually every modeler will have 3D printer I suppose?

Micro Mark Co. had a build it yourself 3D printer for about $700US. not sure about capabilities??

I think 3D printing is still an industry in its adolescence,
when we can get cheap hi res printers for the domestic market is when it will have arrived properly,
that and one arrives easier enough to use for grandma etc. [smile]

A while ago I had a good look around to see what was available for home use and what limitations there are etc.
Filament extrusion is pretty much the only game in town for home use as Laser Sintering machines are £10,000 and up !!
And even then to get really high resolutions you'll need to spend a lot more. But the can do some funky stuff like print
entirely separate working components in one go [smile]

Filament extruders can be bought for from £300 or even less.
But the process has limitations, like all over hangs need support structures,
making parts inside other parts is difficult because the plastic inside needs
to be supported by the plastic underneath and will usually weld etc.
Most of them need manual calibration checks every time you use them,
especially for anything finer than a 0.25mm layer resolution,
although this may have improved in recent years.

There is also a smaller selection of materials you can use too, three kinds
of plastic in different colours, rubber which is cool for flexible tracks etc.
and a dis-solvable plastic for creating removable support structures
but only useful for dual head printing where you can use two different
materials, different colour plastics and the dis-solvable plastic.
For me this would be a must have feature and for anyone wanting to
produce properly complex shapes or pre assembled working parts etc.

Issues with the dual head are about temperature control as both materials
have to run through the same block and some materials prefer different temps.

The one I liked the look of the most was the Ultimaker as it had layer resolutions
down to 0.04mm compared to MakerBot's 0.1mm, was faster & cheaper too and
has a print space of roughly and eight inch cube which is good for a home printer.
But from what I read the dual heads were still going through teething problems
so I kind of left the idea of getting one just yet on the shelf for now.

For creating vac form plugs I have thought about a 3 axis CNC cutter, more
straight forward to use and larger cutting beds are easier to access, plus it's
a more mature industry with less teething issues [smile]

Still though, I am feeling the need to revisit 3D printers and see what's
happened in the last couple of years, would be awesome to have one [smile]

Bit more progress, couple of niggly little jobs like the chin turret but got most of the feet rests worked out,
almost there with them, only 45 parts for the pair of them [smile]

The prospect of painting looms ever closer, sprung seat, pumps & wiring fuselage detail, wing mounts and some mods to the steering etc. and that's the building side done ... and the other missile [smile]

Chin turret support plate from sprue, fits snug enough not to need gluing which makes it positionable [smile]

[232014-15629-69] 
The foot rests, jigged the mounts to add the brackets that hold it on and built up the pedals
with working hinges, bellcranks and sprung telescopic rods [smile]
[232270-15629-77] 

Bit of tidy up and adjustments to make them work sweet but getting there, nearly ready to install [smile]
[232836-15629-20] 

A by product of the pinned foot rest attachments is that the tail wheel arm is now hinged.
The intention is to add some dense sponge to the inside for the arm to push against and
give a kind of simplistic suspension, I've always got plan if it doesn't work,
Sticky Tape !! [smile]

[232837-15629-15] 

better photos to come and all that jazz [smile]

Yay, foot pedals altogether and fully functional [smile]
managed not to glue them solid [biggrin]

Also put a spring on the tail wheel arm which works too,
they both need some fine tuning but almost there with them [smile]

Paul,

I am staring with my mouth hanging open--what a round of engineering! LOVE IT. Great work!!

Love it, with all that detail and "working parts" I think you should build a working engine for it! [crazy]

Thank you very kindly gentlemen ! much appreciated [smile]

Endeavours of the last couple of days, the seat !
who knew so much time could whistle by on just one part ?
at least it doesn't look like a Harrier airbrake now [smile]
the frame next and some more work to get it smooth and leathery

Got a few of the boring tidy ups done too, few more to do though

cheers Ted,
I thought this might be a good bit to do a wee step by step for.
makes one appreciate the effort that must be required to make a video build step by step etc. [smile]

Anyhow, alittle bit shaping and tidying up for this bit [smile]

I like your scratch building! I have only 1/144 Harrier in my stash and is has not separate speed brake.. I really wanted to convert speed brake into seat because of your in progress pictures.
