Hello amora5828,
Donald Trump would say, "Only Fake-News".

This photo without the Christmas tree I posted one year ago, just before Christmas, as you can see here,



and to the day exactly a year ago with the Christmas tree.



Now you are up to date, Merry Christmas!!!
But comfort yourself, one day my launch pad will be finished, you just have to have about the same patience as me, then you will experience it ...

Hello everybody between the years,

and back to the Aft Skirt Thermal Curtains (ASTC) and my friend Joe (crackerjazz) from the ARC Forum, who wanted to model these pieces in 1:144 for 3D printing at Shapeways.

And he actually has kept his word and presented his first 3D models, which look quite passable.

Since the initially intended quality White Strong & Flexible (WSF) might be too grainy for these small parts, Frosted Ultra Detail (FUD) might be more favourable, although a bit more expensive.

The ASTC rings from the Newware-Enhancement Kit (NW131) Space Shuttle with Boosters for the Revell Stack (1:144) look like these, which was used by another ARC friend.

The width of the seams between the 24 segments I measured once again in this Hi-Res photo and should be only approx. 0.1 mm in 1:144, which might be indicated by fine grooves.

My friend wants to upload his 3D model to Shapeways, and then we'll see how much it'll turn out ...

At this point I wish you all a Happy New Year!

Hello everybody,
let's do it again.

My friend Joe was busy again and before uploading to Shapeways he had only one question to the height of the AFTC rim,


Source: arcforums.com (crackerjazz)

which was quickly answered, after I had still again measured exactly the height of the small step inside the Aft Skirt, which is 1,5 mm. Consequently, the height of the printed disc should be slightly lower, if possible ≤ 1,2 mm.



Now please keep your fingers crossed that Shapeways can realize that as well.
