This will be my last entry till I am back in September, as I mentioned earlier, I want to take some days off, I will continue to ship orders as usual and continue to work on stuff and hopefully I will be able to bring news when I am back in September. I need some time to get myself recharged as summer is very hard for me where I live, it affects me physically, mentally and also affects the materials that I use, so I think it is a good time to try to cool down, make some modeling and advance on projects in a pressureless way.
I am awaiting a response from the printing company to have the decals silk screen printed, so if everything goes well, livery decals will be back before the end of the year.
I have to admit that I am feeling a bit disappointed with the 747 cargo set as I am having difficulties with the printed floor. This is a problem that appears after the part is fully cured and it happens to all sorts of printing methods, materials and printers. When a part is flat, thin and long, you are more likely to have bending issues, this is why the conveyor of the belt loader is casted in polyurethane resin.
I am studying the possibility to make the floor of the cargo holds already built in the fuselage or modify the bottom of it to produce it differently. This would also be a problem for the main deck, but I always had planned that it would be casted in polyurethane resin, being a solid floor there won’t be any issues.
I have finished the 1/200 belt loader, but now I am onto the final step, which consists in preparing its product page, the photos, the decals, the instructions… PE was made and tested and all is so far so good. I have been able to make the figures for the 1/200 belt loader altough the summer version requires modifications, have been able to make the wheeldrive solid/in resin as well.
That is all for now, I hope to bring something new on September, I wish you all have a nice month of August and be safe.
