great work can u give me printing parameter(I switched from black to gray resin and I have problems with the setting) tnx in advance

Hi Spartacus.
Here are my current. I over lenghtened the exposure time because i'm currently working with old stashed resin (more than a year) wich kept failing with lower exposure.
Not sure if the setting will be valid anymore when I switch to new stock.

Incredible work going on here! Cockpit and exhaust look amazing and they are not even in the correct scale!

Thanks Marcel. I hope the larger one will please you as well.
Anyz and AIrscale decals at the menu to bring all this grey space to life.
Cheers.

Hi guys, here is a small update on the  seamless Intakes dev.

I got theses tubes in the final stage of fitting.

Fitting pics are not full length intakes as the printing time for a complete part is about 8hours.
So I just printed the first part of the tube until the profile is correct, that's still 2 hours of wait until test fit.

Full length early attempts are pictured here. They do not fit at all with the kit part, but you get the idea.

Unlike other seamless intake correction, the outer Tamiya part is to be kept, and the suckers has to be (force) glued to it.
Some filler will be needed to complete the assembly. But its located at a very reachable and easy to work place.
I think it's more viable than designing a full outer, wich will have to be fitted to the fuselage.

I am of course considering sharing the file once fully finished, but still need to figure out how to do this easily.
 
Maybe there is possibility on the Scale Model Paint Masks forum to expand to 3D model sharing as well ?

Cheers.

Brilliant design and execution Mathieu!

 

This in my opinion is the best way to achieve a seamless intake for the Tamiya kit.  I used a seamless intake set and ground off the outside and slipped it into the plastic parts.  I found this easier to do than dealing with more resin surface details to deal with against the plastic medium

 

brilliant!

Hi Anthony,
Yeah from my experience, blending resin into plastic is more labor intensive, and more prone to lead to problem in the aftermath. Hence the path i've chosen for this.

Absolutely stunning work, Mathieu! A great platform to share 3D files is cults (www.cults3d.com). Fanch usees it to hsre his brilliant 3D files as well. I would love to give it a try on my Mono X for sure. 

Hi Starfighter,
Thanks for the heads up, indeed it's the platform I had selected.
Hope you have an unassembled phantom kit at your disposal, See next post.
Cheers.

Hi guys,
 

Here is the final prototype for my intake tubes, they are roughly printed to speed up the print time and check the fit, production parts should be smoother.

I added a support that conform to the fuselage part and keep it well aligned.

The screw assembly of the original part is kept and reused.

The turbine faces and pitot tubes are reused as well.
 
The only puttying needed should be where the lip join the intake outer part.
There is bad moulding marks at that point so smoothing was needed anyway.
This area being easily accessible, it’s an easy job.

Would you want to give it a try ? It's avaible to downlad for free:
