Falcon DeAgo Cone v4.1
BradM73 Last update for a while, but got the nosecone cracks glued, and got the base coat of Insignia White on today. Assembled and it looks amazing compared to what we had before! Very thankful for 3D printing! To others considering the purchase, it's awesome, just handle it with care as the windows are somewhat delicate, but that would be true of almost any material. Cheers!
BradM73 @ralph_conway Here's the nosecone on the passage way ready to paint. Notice the two evil nosecones in the background! I bet they had something to do with sabotaging my build! LoL!
BradM73 @ralph_conway I'm not exactly sure. I had taken it outside to prime. I brought it back in and left it on a table for the paint to dry and cure. about 5 hours later I decided to return and attempt to fit it to the passageway and noticed they were broken. I'm the only one here so no one else touched it. Needless to say, I secured the broken bits with superglue and all seems okay now.
BradM73 @ralph_conway Well, it looks like I might need the v4 nose cone now, since three of the window frames just broke after trying to get it mounted to the cockpit tunnel. #FML
BradM73 Just received my nose cone today. Excellent quality and the print is near perfect. I ordered the Frosted Ultra Detail version as I wanted the best print quality possible. It did require some sanding, so be prepared for that. I used some fine grit sand paper and a few small files to sand around the details. Some additional sanding is required inside the rear ring to get it to fit onto the cockpit tube more easily. Out of the box it was extremely tight. During painting, some areas want to 'soak' up the primer, so you may need a few coats of primer and ample drying time between applications of primer or paint. Definitely happy with my purchase though. Finally a CORRECT nose cone for the DeAgostini Millennium Falcon kit! Five Stars! Big thanks Conway!
