But recently acquired from an individual I cant name until Im sure he wants the attention.....
This big guy was "grown" by rapid prototyping. And its rough. Its pvc plastic and its layering is definitely not as fine as you would get from a place like Shapeways but I can work with it. I mean Ive worked with a kit or two with worse.
If you look close you can see the layering effect clearly. This is after a while of adding Tamiya Putty and sanding. Then a blast of primer and more sanding and the roughness is diminished,
I wont get it totally smooth and Im cool with that.
I hadnt touched the foot yet so you can see the layers better here. There are so many facets Ill never get them all perfect but perfection is not my goal.
And yes the pod doors open. A very nice touch.
