Thanks for the welcome!
Nah, I'm afraid I don't have anything really worth posting on the site just yet. There's that sculpting stuff I've started on which you saw, but I'd like to at least build a body for Hercules before calling it "done". I also just posted another thread about some transcripts/subtitles I started working on. Maybe I'll upload those and you can copy them to the site or link to them.
I'm also working on yet another
from-scratch rebuild of the X-Bomber in 3D. I think this is at least my sixth attempt over the last 20+ years of goofing around in different software tools, though each time I feel like I come at it with a few improved skills and a better understanding of her unique shapes and proportions. I still need to rebuild the Dai-X so it can fit into the X-Bomber's sides; so, I still have a lot of work cut out for me. I also need to dig through my screenshots to sketch out and build lots more greebles along the sides and back.
When I'm done (EVENTUALLY… this is
a 2021 goal for me!), I plan to send it off to Shapeways to get a little physical model printed for my desk.
I'm trying to make this one as accurate as possible
, and along the way, I've discovered several way the multiple scale models used in the show have slightly different proportions and not-so-slightly different features and details. I've also come to realize that the otherwise-lovely front and side line-art illustrations from the soundtrack LP poster are also wrong in interesting ways, and they shouldn't be followed strictly as an outline for modeling. So, I'm making a few
creative compromises between the various references while trying to stays true to the spirit of them all.
Oh, and if you change your mind about accepting a few buckazoids to keep the site alive, my offer stands.
