BigSister - current status by Destro2k BigSister - current status by Destro2k
-update 30.8.-
oki doki
after sitting the whole day infront of the model
i'm very happy with the current result :)

the leg attachments (pink)
are seperated and the internal geometry (screws through the leg) is removed
also there are again some flat pieces to connect the single pieces together

the left arm attachments are completely over-worked
no clippings anymore and the pieces should fit :)

also all of the valves are now flat (incl. the ones from the airtank)
there will be enough 3d stuff to build so there should be some simple pieces too ;)

then the head and the torso are now fit together
the head will be still spererate to build but the open side fit to the polygones

what's left ?
fitting the cage to the airtank and the torso and the right arm attachments

man, this is the most complicated model that i ever had :D

-update 20.8.-

ok, i updated the old one because the tank should fit now
i was able to edit the mesh that way that the tank (green)
is now one single object
no plates and no rings :dance:

the pink piece is the attachment for the cage
i also cut those rings that way that it fit between into a little gap

the violett pieces are the other attachments for the tank
i have to edit those a bit too
specially this wheels
i will try to make them complete flat and copy them, so that i late have only to cut them out and glue two flat pieces together :)

ok, just to let you know what my current problem is

here you can see the Airtank of the BigSister

the violet mesh is one layer/object
also the pink and green

now i have to figure out how to combine them into one single object
the green and pink objects are no rings, they are plates which are going completly through the violet object
to edit the "mesh" like this is not the main problem by the way
it's the texture
if i combine the single objects, i become texture issues
it looks like the texture is ripped appart

meanwhile i found a nice little option what is called "knife"
where i can cut existing object like a samurai sword into half without loosing the shape and gain more polygones

so i can remove the inside faces (sides) from the airtank where i can add then the rings (*yush*)

so i "could" build that thing in an other way
building the plates and add the tank around
but i don't want this
first of all, because it's a lot more work and you need a lot more ink
also it's more unstable

just a little behind view of this work ;)

i need some sleep and something to eat :D

I don't know If you still need an idea, but you could make a hole in both bodies with a structure that links them.

Look at the pictures below.




In this model, the back of the hull has two holes for the structure of the nacelles. It is more stronger and is simpler to assemble.


PD: Sry for my english.

Namarië ;)

hey hey :)
meanwhile i solved it
the problem was to get the shape of the inside tank to the plates
the mesh had an other structure
i also changed the messed textured to black
it was quite black allready so it isn't that bad :)

but although i know what you mean
i had this stabilizer at the clap trap model
to move the arms
when it works it's always faszinating how stable paper can be :)

by the way
nice enterprise model :)
