Spaceport Series I project supporters each get to name a town/city that ends up on blocks of 250 license plates/number plates. More details at the Genet Models workbench:
Just posted another workbench entry for the spaceport trucks over at the Genet Models forum!
To streamline things a bit further, I’ve begun consolidating the workbench into the Genet Models forum. That way, you guys don’t have to run all over the Internet to stay abreast of what I’m doing.
Things of note: I added recap posts for the 4 completed models and a recap post for the Samson trucks. I’ll be picking things up from there.
Just shipped the finalized Zoom files in all of the color variants, and reorganized the file list for the spaceport set because it was getting a little long at 20+ links.
Since the activity logs indicate that practically everyone downloads all of the files and not just a subset of them, it also felt a little silly to expect people to click on 186,950,441 links just to get their stuff. So, I’ve streamlined the list down to one master file per spaceport item, so there are far fewer links to click on now.
Let me know if you run into any oopsies.
I’ll be doing additional work on the spaceport trucks and the hangar bay set this week.
Got some work done on the spaceport project today. I did 2 additional test builds of the Zoom and narrowed down the cause of the build issues I was having with the last couple of beta builds. I’d thought it was me being a sloppy builder, but that wasn’t it.
So, Bun-Bun has a new friend, Froggy:
New instructions and cutfiles included.
Okay, main differences:
- There are external flaps on the upper body that fold over and glue onto the belly plate.
- There are antibuckle flaps on the belly plate.
- Additional tolerance tweaks on the wheel wells, belly plate, and the big reinforcer piece.
Let me know how you get on with this version.
In other news, I discovered an use for Twitter. It’s great for the little incremental stuff that doesn’t merit a whole blog or forum post, so I dusted off the Genet Models Twitter account and put it to work. You can find it here: @GenetModels
UPDATE (JUNE 14 2012): Updated file again–somehow an older version of the cutfiles ended up in the test package. I’ve fixed and re-uploaded it. Same link.
