AgeOfPlastic Hi, Scouls502! Thanks for picking up these models. :) Hope they work well for you.
Sadly I don't have any plans for making matching Rebel fleet vessels. I have many other things on the go first.
Also, Home One and the Calamari ships are particularly complicated. ;) Sorry!
AgeOfPlastic Hey there! This would be a tricky thing to scale. First, most of the details are as small as is printable, and shrinking them further in size would make them unprintable by Shapeways. I'd have to rebuild pretty well every detail.
Second, I don't have an FFG model, and would therefore only be able to guess the correct dimensions to make it fit properly!
AgeOfPlastic@monsterpartyhat : Hi, and thanks for the kind words! I actually made an X-wing upgrade, but haven’t released it yet. The angles are so wacky and the ship body is so narrow it’s really difficult to get right. It’s going to take a while to get right, and I’m working on some other projects at the moment I’m afraid!
AgeOfPlastic Hi, and thanks for your interest in my products! This grille wasn't designed to replace the Bandai equivalent, I'm afraid. The Bandai part (or parts since it's made in sections) is way too thick to be to-scale. With some effort you could probably hack and cut it to fit, but there'd be a gap between the grille and the Bandai rear nozzle-type grille, and I certainly don't guarantee this an option!
I don't see a huge advantage in doing so, however. The only advantage is that the Bandai rear grille has larger holes, and so lets through more light. The one I modelled after the Fine Molds rear grille has smaller holes.
AgeOfPlastic Thanks for buying the product! Any 6mm by 6mm momentary pushbutton with a 7mm post should work.
I bought mine from an eBay seller - item 401208905398 - but they're widely available all over. Just search for "6x6 pushbutton", for example.
AgeOfPlastic Hi, @j_holtslander! Yes - that's a good point... the photos of the unpainted parts don't look great.
I don't have any properly painted ones yet, but I've posted a shot of a primed part to give you an idea of how it looks. Remember this is a magnified shot - in person the detail looks fantastic!
Star Wars, Alien, and a bunch of other SF movies shot in the late 70s and 80s all used the same plastic shipping pallet as a floor, wall, and ceiling decoration. So I thought it might be fun to create a replica for use with 1/12 figures and the like.
By the way - sorry if multiple "favourites" of my own models appear in your feed!
After many weeks Shapeways still haven't fixed the bug that's resulted in a whole ton of the same "favourite" appearing in my feed over and over, so I was having a look at how that works. And now I've favourited my own stuff. And there's no undo feature! Argh.
So I've created a 1:72 version of my Docking Bay 94 detail set! This was more than just an upscale - I added additional detail to most of the pieces, and also increased the internal holes to reduce the amount of plastic used, and thus the cost.(Edited)
