    This looks great! I'm going to have to build a similar one, and print it!

    That's only about 2200 miles from me. :) I'd love to come up that way some time.

    Looking great. I don't think the changes to the back panels are going to matter much, once all the details are in place.

    I thought using staples for the handles was an awesome idea. :-)

    Very cool. Can you post some other angles of the wings?

    Also, don't forget to send me the dimensions of the nacelle domes. :)

    I am only working on one wing right now until I decide on how to do the detailed work. The wings are currently a work in progress. The rough job you see in the picture, will be cut to allow the vent on the bottom section of the wing, with a plexi-glass insert to allow the engine glow to be visible. I am still trying to decide on how to do the top venting and still allow access and room for the wiring and lights.:brickwall:


    The inside of the Nacelle dome is going to be made from a clear plastic Christmas ball. The "inside" measurement of the ball is 2.75" so if you allow for perhaps a 1/6 clearance, we should be good. Not sure how you did the digital design, but to make it work so it can rotate, I will need a base with a pin hole in the center to attach it to the electric motors. Since I will be cutting the bulb in half the design will allow for the motor and your piece to stick out the back to be wired and allow for lights. The base of your piece could either be solid, and then I could drill holes to represent the fans...or you could design the base to actually look like fan blades to allow back lighting to shine through. I will leave that up to you. I can hand draw what I am thinking...but it is your design and like I said, I really hate reinventing the wheel if the cave man that designed it in the first place is still kicking :guffaw:

    Cool, looking great.

    I think I know exactly what would work for the fan blades... I'll post a pic when I get it put together. :)

    Star Trek: Ambush
    Yesterday at 11:51am ·

    Welcome to all the new fans and welcome to 2015 from everyone at Ambush. The Romulan set is so close to completion I can almost taste the Romulan Ale that we'll toast with!

    But now I want to introduce you all to a new member of the team, Ricky Wallace Jr of MadMan's Shipyard. Ricky is a very talented CG Artist who already has an impressive portfolio, be sure to check it out. Especially take note of the "Prime Alternative" Project he did back in 2010 which you can see here http://madshipyard.com/ThePrimeAlternative/

    Ricky is helping us design our fleet of ships including the USS Ambush itself and will be doing some CG work to compliment our real model work. Check out his page to see the awesome stuff he is up to, which also includes Custom 3D Printing!!!
