Hi everyone

Well, she's pretty much done now. I am still working on the base which will house 3 ships for now with room for a Dreadnought later on
I'm not going to weather it much now as I like it the way it is
I'll take some lit shots later on and post them up hopefully tonight
Let me know what you think - good or bad































I think that's plenty of pics for now, but as always, thanks for looking in

Thanks Gadgetron.

I am on his list for the big reboot Galactica but have no idea what it will cost TBH plus shipping. I will need to try that archive service to see if I can get an idea as to how much it will be.

I'm using an Arduino Nano, which is pretty small.  At this time I'm thinking it will go in the back (there is no equipment rack).  Most of the wiring goes to lights in the body, so if I'm lucky the whole thing will be wired up and pretty much finished before the chassis and 'body?' are attached.  Of course, there are a lot of lights to wire up, so that alone should make it interesting. 

More pics tomorrow: how the roof equipment is coming along, scratch built ladder, and how to handle the headlights.

Started the new job this week and have been a little busier.

Hi, Everyone!

When visiting JT Graphics' website (http://jt-graphics.com/), it looks to be in bad shape.  Major parts of it have been "under construction" for a long time.  And to make things worse, everything under the "Products" category has been removed.

But today I found out that JT Graphics (Jeffrey Waclawski) is actually quite active on Facebook.  Here's the link to his public Facebook page if you want to check it out: https://www.facebook.com/JT-Graphics-313182708694381/.

Also, Jeffrey is still casting parts.  If you want to see his previous "Products" line on his website, you'd have to use a service like the Wayback Machine (it's an Internet archive service) to see older versions of his site.  Then send him an email (info@jt-graphics.com) to inquire about parts availability.  That's one workaround for now until the day he actually improves his website.

:)

Yeah, and I got some items from him in October. I just e-mailed him. Strange that you're getting them bounced back. If he has the stuff on hand, he can sell them to you. He lost his casting partner unfortunately.

I got a resin aftermarket part from him in February. I emailed and he responded in a couple days.

Update #33

I have finally gotten the insert to look decent.  Took about 50 iterative attempts to get there, the angles and radii of the curves drove me NUTS.  So of course there had to be other issues,   The cutter would not cut through my 0.020 styrene, so had to drop down to 0.010 which means double the number of parts to cut, clean up and glue together.  The inserts are going to be little stacks of these cut outs glued together like a laminate.  Hope it works out well.  I need to build a little jig to compress the plastic bits together while they are glued up, to keep everything straight.  The next pic is of most of the electronics installed into the nacelles.  I do not have the Enterprise spot lights installed yet.  I have to do some assembly of the model to get the LEDs to line up properly.  I am debating on whether to glue the pylons to the nacelles to get these LEDs installed properly.  Once the nacelle is closed up, they they will not ever get opened again.  The last two pics are of the retirement box I am making for a friend.  Getting closer, but have to drive back up to Dallas to use some machine to get back to right angles.  My hand finishing could be better, oh well.  The construction of the box is about complete.  Once I get down up in Dallas, will complete the finish on the box, and then will need to order the hardware.  I have the leather that is going into the top of the box sitting in my office.

Cheers,
James

Hi Steve,

If I recall, WEMOS works at 3.3V right? 5V used by the ATtiny85 is a bit more convenient for me. Plus,
I'm a believer in not having more I/O pins lying around than what's needed.

It's also an exercise in designing my own boards should I ever need to some day, otherwise I would have gone with something like this:

I'll keep updating github as things progress. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll be limber enough to get back to the BOP.

Spencer
