Wow, how long did it take to design print and assemble ? What an amazing advert for the UP plus...

Do you have any pictures of the components being printed.

I will release the .stls this weekend after I have made an assembly instruction sheet.
Some of the parts can be a bit challenging to make, and the assembly is not for novices.

Amazing job; both on the SW models and the prints! That is a ton of work and the result is well worth it.

Thanks for sharing!

That is an amazing job! I would be interested in some of the details of HOW you did it. You say you modeled in Solidworks, did you import any form of scan data, or did you model from scratch?

And the finish detailing is stunning. I think we would all be thankful for details on how you achieved it, from initial surface prep, to the type of paint used.

That is definitely an achievement and something to be proud of!
Thanks,

FallGuy

pp3dp white filament.
0.2mm, normal, loose, 3mm raft.
Perfboard (screwed to plate) with thin smear of liquid ABS before each print.

All parts drawn from scratch, referencing L'instant Durable paper model, internet photos and books.

Parts assembled with acetone, wicked between parts with a syringe. Hold together / clamp until dry (about 5 minutes.) All fine details had a wicking of acetone to strengthen them. Blow on the surface of the part after applying acetone to ensure there are no pools or puddles and the excess is spread out and can evaporate. If you leave a puddle the ABS goes gooey and can take a day or more to cure.

Surface prep - remove strings, raft. That's it.

Paint job is quick and nasty, mainly to highlight the details.
Painted using mostly Citadel Acrylics (Acrylics best choise for ABS. I like the Citadel ones for brushwork, as they are thicker, especially the new formulation base colours which cover really well with one coat.)
Base coat Citadel Desert Yellow, thinned, paint both sides ( or else the white makes it look translucent.)
Roof Airfix acrylic #56 (from memory), not thinned.
Quick wash of Citadel Flesh Wash, varying levels of thinning, around all the statues, details and roof tops.
Citadel Black Wash for darker details.
Drybrush of Citadel Codex Grey in places where the wash had covered too much of the base coat.

It seems superfluous after all the other comments, but I have to add my own WOW to the thread. Mr. Bergman, you rock.
