They All Laughed:

At Christopher Columbus yada yada yada.......

It worked; symmetry and toughness now all needs to be done is score the backside to make the curve and I'll have duplicated this rather intense hole array.

The problem was not so much the pattern of the holes but making the material strong enough to take the curves without cracks and splits radiating from around the cutouts when the material is bent and glued.

We'll see if my idea will solve that problem........

Martini Time:

Cause for celebration, the project worked!

So well in point of fact that I have already carved off the previous effort in preparation for installing the new style heat dissipating shield.

I hope to have the completed mufflers ready this evening.

Martini time!

Oh just to show I do 'F' up now and then; I made the hole row plates much longer than was necessary.

Ahh, Much Better:

Good enough has never been my mantra; with a bit of elbow grease and an unhealthy dose of OCD I have a much better set of exhausts than my first effort.

All totaled perhaps about two to three hours of labor for these highly complex minor components but a lot of the sanding and shaping was done whist watching DVD movies so not much actual time was wasted.

Seen here temporarily tacked in place just for show at this time as all the rivets need to be filed down to a uniform height.

Quite a Chunk of Resin:

Anyone owning a FW Baneblade knows it's quite a chunk of highly detailed resin weighing in at close to a kilo (two pounds).

My Baneblade which I've had for eight or so years was rescued and repaired with TLC and is still my favorite FW vehicle (treaded that is)

This new model is coming along slowly as the detailing is quite exhausting and I do have other commitments but I managed the front 'bolt on' bumper today

and yesterday evening some of the rear detail....

http://i.imgur.com/AIzkjqU.jpg


Slowly but surely it's getting done.

Whatever Insignia This Is:

Well after d*mned near a two month hiatus where in I repaired flood damage and added new baseboard to just about the entire first floor of my humble abode now recarpeted in deoxygenated blood red burgundy plush carpet, I'm back to building models; Yay!

So last night I resumed the outsized Baneblade style Super Duper heavy Stormhammer.

http://i.imgur.com/yy9bDbN.jpg


First order of business was to install the re-enforced armour panel for which the Lucius B'blade is noted. I really like this anachronistic appearance which somehow exemplifies a world lapsing into decay but still has the ability to squander resource on the futility of war. I used 0.030 inch 0,75 MM thickness styrene for the panels as 0.040"/1,0 MM looked too thick. As of right now all the panels are installed and the bitz and gewgaw need to be installed and fabricated and also the umpity ump rivets.

So now the winged skull insignia:

Seen here in the first stages with a few skulls scrounged from spare CoD floor panels and mounted on 7,0MM disks...........

You are back! You are alive! Gods be praised, you have been missed old boy. I'm up to my arse in voluntary but snowballing renovations at the moment, so I feel your pain somewhat, I look forward to more wit wisdom and beverage recipes
