Re: VIIC 1:45 modell

The hull with two Layers of Nylon, results in approx. 0.8mm thickness. The hull itseld is so stiff you could use as a racket. Cutout for the ventilation inlets worked as planned. Pls note that only black and amber nylons will work for a sub, not the pink ones. IMG_20190406_135117.jpg IMG_20190406_13...

Re: VIIC 1:45 modell

What a day. One of those "good, bad and ugly" ones. Good: Body separator finished. Vertical and horizontal bars are giving a snug fit of the two sections. No need for screws and stuff. Worked as designed. 8-) Bad: Bow and Aft section 2°degrees out of line. Lesson learned here. When building a skelet...

Re: VIIC 1:45 modell

Cutting of the "vacer" logo. Pls note that you may get a _little_ bit of ashes on top when the first cut doesn't get through whereas on the bottom side there should only be hardly noticable traces of _smoke_ patterns but no ash deposits. The ash/smoke pattern on top of the material is due to a vent ...

Re: VIIC 1:45 modell

Some laser cutter improvements. I should have done the "vacuum box" right at the beginning of this project (jacka_me (C))... drastically improves cutting results. Some settings that worked for my 15Watt laser on an eleks maker frame. The lattice metall avoids the building of ashes on the bottom side...
