It's always great to come back and be able to bask in the work of demi-gods such as yourself Blackadder. Superb work, as usual!

Oh also I got to come face to face with some Black Templars aligned Lucius Pattern Warhounds you made where I was living last year. They were excellent and much admired by all!

I sent a Lucius Pattern Reaver to AU a few years back but never a Warhound.

Oh, I must have misunderstood what I was told. Oh well, whoever did them did a great job!

A Failed Attempt:

One of the duties of posting these updates is to show my failures as well as triumphs.

I've wasted a few days on trying to make the coils on this Plasma Blaster and I am not enthused with the result so before I try a different approach I'll show what did not work out.

I came up with a new idea that I believe will produce a better result and in the long run be much quicker to produce.

Once I have a good start on the procedure I'll post an update.

This Is Definitely the Better Way To Go:

In the space of one hour I've exceeded the work of several days.

Note: The rods are staggered only as a demonstration. When they are glued they will be flush with the edge.

Of course I shall have to bend these to the shape of the coils.

All success has a foundation of failure. Keep up the stellar work!

All failures began with the anticipation of success. But thank you for the encouragement. I am really putting myself out on a limb with this one. The 1/8 inch rods were the single greatest expense I've incurred thus far on this build but I really want a Plasma Blaster. :D

Thanks for the reply Old Man.

Bend Angle Radius:

The relationship between the strength of a material and the amount of curve that can be imparted to the the material before the fatigue point where it will crack instead of take the curve.

In aircraft it applies to aluminum alloys etc and the metal fatigues when too much stress crystallizes the area being bent to a point of material failure.

plastic is subject to similar restrictions. That is where we are now. How to impart a bend and not fatigue the styrene?

I am soaking the assembly in Tamiya Cement for the test tomorrow to see if I can get the parts to bend without fatiguing.

A judicious application of heat may be necessary.

Win One For The Gripper

Or Fail to do so; it's the moment of truth when we'll see if my makeshift bender will work or not.

After a hiatus of three days I finally had the time and nerve to see if all my work was for naught.

https://i.imgur.com/GCK6X9J.jpg


I put a lot at stake with this wooden jig which in spite of its crude appearance is actually pretty precise.

All that needed to be done is boil up an quart of water and pour it over the clamped sheet of Styrene.

In my moment of mental anguish all my better half could say is, "Couldn't you have done a bit of Hooving?"
