If Dave would indulge me a little further in this discussion of the sign on the Blade Runner 2049 building, I need to make a correction and would like to do a little more speculating.
Doug (SCEtoAUX), in a private message to avoid embarrassing me publicly, pointed out that I had misread the sign, which reads 행운 (haeng un) [“lucky”] and not 행은 (haeng-eun) [bank].

"Lucky" may have some significance. One of the largest of the Korean giant conglomerates (jabeol) is LG, which originally stood for "Lucky Goldstar." And although the founder of the firm used the transliteration 럭키(Leogki = Lucky), rather than the Korean word haeg un, the term may be intended to call up images of Korean jaebol (Japanese zaibatsu), that were the basis for both Japanese and Korean economic development. Those terms call up mixed images of success, wealth, modernity, but also exploitation and corruption in East Asia.

It would also fit for a casino!

It does not seem odd to me that in the world of Blade Runner both Korean and Japanese cultural and language images would appear.

Or maybe I’m overthinking it.

"H" = ae; "O" on the top = unspoken place holder, on the bottom = "ng"; "T "= u (rhymes with the "ou" "you"); sideways "L" = n. ㅎ = h, Therefore, 행 - haeng and 운 = un.

Goodyear Grabber

Hi Dave -

I did realize you were saying that parts of the hangul characters look like Roman letters. I was just showing what those letter-like characters actually stand for phonetically.

Anyway, I finished the Grabber, after a fashion.

Audi! Audi!

Don

Nice work on the 3-dimensional hood scoops, Blake. I just glued mine on flat.

I think you both glued them flat to the hood, which is the way I intended it.
The scale allows for the card thickness to create a 3D effect.
Both look great.

Blake7...haha...you made exactly the same mistake as I did!
First time I assembled this model, I put one Roof Lamp facing backwards!
LOL
They are so tiny and annoying to work with, aren't they!

A tip for all (including blake7) when installing wheels...
some designers, like me, use "3D" artwork.
I use artwork shading and highlights to simulate an actual 3D surface.

My wheels are flat car with artwork to simulate the 3D surface.

Make sure when installing a part like this you look for the top and bottom of the part.
If its not indicated on the model sheet, then pay attention to the artwork.
Look at the highlights and shadows and think about the overhead light source to get the correct position.

Thanks airdave! I was rushing to finish the model. Sorry. My printer printed the model alittle dark, and the rims were too dark. I pulled the template off the PDF, and adjusted the brightness, and reprinted just for the rims. I think my hood scoop look more 3D because the paper I build with is 110lb cardstock.

To the best of my knowledge and belief, My wheels are correctly aligned with the light, and the wind, and the spirits.

They have not always been so in the past, but after building the C-130 wheels, I have been sensitive to this issue.

This is the PDF printed page. As I said I think it is my printer. I was trying to be the first to build the "Grabber", but Don is too fast for me.
