Klavs has started to take his awesome Confed fighter renders and turn them into real life models! Thanks to the emerging rapid prototyping / 3D printing industry, it's now possible to turn digitized designs into solid resin ships (see yesterday's news for more). Due to the cost of this new technology, most fans have been making miniature models for tabletop gaming. Klavs' Rapier is huge by comparison! We're looking forward to seeing the ship after it's painted!
Something neat finally came in the mail today! Pretty nice, even if I made the secondary tails too thin and they snapped off. A little light sanding took care of the ridges, and the extra cash I coughed up for the extra high resolution print really paid off. Check out those panel lines boy! If anybody needs me I'll be making zhooming noises and flying around the house. :) I'll try and get some better shots once I get it painted!
