    Re: Tommygun does what with paper?

    Son of a buck! Okay, I need to get an inkjet printer. My laser printer models evidently flake when I nest them. I hadn't done anything like this since my inkjet went down. It doesn't look horrible, but they looked so good to start, this is troubling. Razzum, frazzum, riggum, biggum, rum, rip.

    Tommy, you have several of your pieces that nest. Do you spray something on to keep them from flaking? Or do you use an inkjet?

    I haven't ever had a problem like this before.

    @Finn: the "Metal Hex Building" version on his website is a very nice, neutral metallic grey. Sounds like just what you're looking for.

    I only use ink jets.
    I have heard that when laser printers don't get hot enough to fuse the ink, it can cause issues.

    Probably what happened ...

    They do seem to nest properly, though

    Sounds like the fuser drum is on the way out.

    How about a Futuristic drop ship to go with them?

    Good site.
    I have those templates, but that is the best build I have seen.
    One day maybe.

    I don't want to derail the thread, but I have to ask: is that the only template they have? I browsed the links for a good 20 minutes at work today and couldn't find anything but pictures and rules for what appears to be some kind of indie game :P

    Also, I may have to modify that template to look a little more chaos-y....or just more man-made in general, in terms of 40k. Looks a little Tau-ish.

    It's the only one I could see.
    I think the Hercules has the Imperial flying brick look down perfectly.

    Re: Tommygun does what with paper?

    Well speaking of flying bricks...
    Here is another one.
    I know it's a flyer, but I use it as a terrain piece.

    This is a test model, so it is pretty rough looking.
    I have had to tear a few pieces off to glue them in different places so you may see torn paper.
    Those pods on the bottom house the landing gear in the back and guns up front.
    They will get stubby gun barrels in the front too (two each side).
    The landing gear will be a wide landing skid/ski type.
    The wings will be replaced with something much more robust and the engine pods will rotate on the short "wing" tips.
    It will have a rear ramp which I failed to draw on the test model.
    Still a lot of work to be done.

    The shape you have is... unique. I'm interested to see what you do with it.

    If I remember right, this is a troop carrier primarily. Think SW LAAT, only not. Can you refresh our memories of the original wings, TG?

    Re: Tommygun does what with paper?

    This was the first test version, before the changes.
    I'm going to make a smaller version of the nose piece and mount the engine pod to it.
    A bit like how the Osprey mounts it engines.
    No real wings, it's just flies on pure thrust and ugliness.
    I wanted a very brutish military machine.
    It's only purpose is to move things and kill targets.
    If there are devices that can't do those two things, then they don't go on the aircraft.

    That, sir, is the finest design philosophy I've ever heard.

    Re: Tommygun does what with paper?

    One side done.
    I still need to design the retractable landing skids and landing gear doors.
    Also the gun barrels and optional air brakes/ flaps.
    There will be an optional small bubble nose too that extends out about one cm longer.
    I have a lot of clean up and small changes here and there on the png files before I can put it into pdf form.
    Well I'm happy with it. I have my little brutish killing machine.
    I'll post more picture once I have it all done.

    Re: Tommygun does what with paper?

    will you use a card-solution on the rotating engine, or will it be magnets?

    Re: Tommygun does what with paper?

    @Vermin King: I used a piece of heavy brass tubing on one of Topo's UD12s and it works like a charm. Plastic/styrene tubing might work too, but I'd worry that it was too flexible.

    @Tommygun: Looking good! The interior details for the engine look great, though I find such assemblies to be a little tricky. Need more practice, I suppose. I like the idea of a nose extension... is it too late to ask for a ball turret?

    Re: Tommygun does what with paper?

    I'm using magnets for the engines.
    I may be able to resize the bubble nose to be used as a turret.

    Re: Tommygun does what with paper?

    I'm not done yet, but I just added the air breaks and I liked how they came out.
    I had to cut an angle out of them as they were rubbing against the hull.
    It will need several changes on the pdf, but I like it.
    It's an option part if you don't want it.

    Re: Tommygun does what with paper?

    Unfortunately I contracted a Summer flu bug.
    I hoped to be done by now, but I can't seem to do anything while on flu medication.
    So I did do this much over two days.
    Added Nose art and Guns.
