Ok. Some people have been understandably asking for photos of the models of my ships rather than the renders. So i'm going to put them here as i, or anyone else who might have them, makes them avaiable rather than having them scattered hither and yon across the board.On occasion i might put one in which is SW but for a different scale if im particularly proud of it *L*
But i will start with some less than perfect pics of my Z-95.

comparison of the 3d render and the actual model to give an idea of how close they are ( The Z-95/s is in frosted detail material, the Mk2 (red striped) is in white strong and flexible

Really? Both those images of the basic Z95 are in White, Strong and Flexible? Wow, I thought they were in the higher detail format.

Here are the ships I ordered from Gosric. I had them printed in frosted ultra detail.

Wow Michael. Those look great.Paint jobs that is.You have made my minis look better than i thought they would. Though i am pleased with how the models came out as well of course. I had a few doubts about the Heavy gun version of the Headhunter, what with being something of a traditionalist and all that, but it isnt bad at all. I have found though that the difference between frosted ultra detail and just frosted detail is negligible. and frosted detail is a bit sturdier and a lot cheaper *L*

Until i can get some more 1/270 things posted i just thought id post a couple of thing that are not scale compatible but things that i am rather pleased with *L*



The Praetor was a request, that i thought came out quite well



The Relentless was something i came up with as the main villain ship for a tactical rpg scenario combining features of carrier and battleship (which is silly i know since just about all capital ships in SW are already carriers, but oh well)

Lastly the Corvan Gunship is one i am thinking of remaking in 1/270 since right now i believe it is about an inch and a half so wouldnt really work but would end up around 6 inches in 1/270

This are the pictures I took from your Baudo Class Yacht:




The hole on the bottom is a personal customization so it will fit my pegs.

White strong and flexible. it is the sturdiest of the shapeways materials but not overly good with detail which is why i only suggest using it for larger ships where the cost might make the trade off worthwhile. Frosted Detail is the best option all round i think but for anything above 3 inches it can be a bit expensive *L*

IRD wing: Gosric / dials and cards?

I've got 3 Corporate Sector IRD's on the way; how about those?

I don't care to see all the OP ships; I think these might be some2-3 initiative, 2 att / 3 agil / 2 hull / [0?] shields; guessing fairly nimble on the maneuver dial, but not as fast as a TIE ...

My logic can be seen in the AFM thread here:

But since the pictures broke when my website went poof, here's a couple sample cards for my ideas:

Yes! Want that one; a good interim model.

Probably the upper end of what you'd mount on a large stand.

Eek! No speed 1 AT ALL? gulp
How about 1 straight[w]; maybe 1 L [w], 1 R [w]?


First, Brian Daley has said he thought of the IRD as a "Star Wars ME-262." That's a plane that had a very high stall speed (for WWII) and a horrible turning radius. To fight Spitfires or P-51s it would zoom in, shoot, zoom away again, take it's time turning whilst out of range, and do it again. It's the origin of the phrase "boom-and-zoom," which is how Allied pilots described the attack. So if the X-Wing is a Spitfire, then the IRD's minimum speed has to be higher than an X-Wing's.

Second, it's supposed to be a TIE's less agile cousin. TIEs don't have 1 straights, so IRDs shouldn't either - and the IRD should have wider turns.

Third, I was trying to do something different with the dial - it's not all that interesting to just plop the IRD on the table as a "cheap" TIE, it needed to have something about it that would make manoeuvring it engaging and new.

And, fourth, it's just my completely untested notions - so by all means feel free to create something else that works for you.

Ok, that all sounds pretty good - I was more looking for some alternative to mashing into objects due to having 2 speed minimum [i.e., a 1 speed straight/turn, in Red].

I do appreciate the input and ideas!

Gosrics EU Ships: mounting pegs???
Hello,

Having a couple Shapeways designs now, I am EXTREMELY reluctant to get any more designs that do not have a mounting hole in the bottom.

While I feel that Gosric's designs are some of the very best, they do not have this option.

I would like to order a few more [T-19, Baudo Yacht] in FD. But, no mounting holes - and from what I hear, I don't want to get a beautiful design, only to break it by trying to bore a hole in the bottom.

Gosric, how hard would it be for you to add mounting holes on the bottoms of these [and all your other designs]??? soblue

Thanks,

~Jim

I can get right on that after i get correct measurements for the hole and support. And finish a couple of requests, those have to take priority

Just thought i would post this.It isnt SW but i wanted to show an example of how WSF can look when it comes out well. I am very pleased with this one.

http://lorelei-shipyards.tumblr.com/post/67506532068/eagle-t...

i decided to make a tumblr page for ease of reference and to post new things as i do them . If you are interested feel free to take a look at what i do. Constructive criticism is always welcome.

I think your ships are some of THE best designs out there, when it comes to detail and thoughtfulness of design [e.g., "how can I make this more affordable"].

It would really help if each ship had an alternate 'mounting hole' design. Example: "Blastboat 1/270" can have a "Blastboat 1/270 w/mount".

Even if it needed to be a simple hole, perhaps standardized with Mel_Miniatures / TOPO. That way, people like me who have so-so skills with miniatures painting/modding gulp have that option.

I have not purchased more designs yet for this reason: if I purchase a FD / FUD ship of yours, it will need a mounting hole / peg. I have heard repeatedly that there is greater risk of cracking/breaking of the model. A hole, similar to the way TOPO's shuttle has one, at least has a hole which I can putty/cement. I prefer that to the drilling risk.

Is that a feasible thing for you? Or does it require a complete redesign of a ship model?

Again, THANK YOU for all the good design work you have done

~Jim

I'm a fan of the Strong Flexible Polished material. YOu lose some detail with the polishing, but also all of the printing grain.

strong flexible polished works well for some models but for the E Wing for instance it would play havoc with the guns.
Mitservices - Some models can just have a hole made, some will require a complete hull rebuild I havent forgotten about bases *L* i just need to get caught up on prior requests
