Thanks Marty  Smiley


Small update:
Frame: both sides are almost done!   \(^_^)/







Next, the "Pedestal Bolt Thimble".

I'll made just one then I'll send it to the caster... I need 8 of them.

Cheers
Arnaud

Thanks for your comment Russ  Grin




After casting, all will be ready to complete all pedestals (x8) with their driving box + wedges and the bolt thimble.

Next update in a few months I guess  Undecided  Smiley

Needs a lot of hex bolts...

Looking good. What material will be used for the castings? Resin?

Hi Arnaud

Are you planning to build the model rigid without any springing?

Thank you gentlemen  Smiley
@Ray, Resin.
@Jim,
All will be rigid, like a static model + base. Unfortunately, to make the things functional is above my possibilities. I can't machined metal, I don't have a mill, big tools neither  Cry plus I don't have room for them  Cheesy
I'm building this as a sculpture, the most accurate than I can  Smiley

Plastic,
It's fantastic.

Thanks Marc,
I Know a few casters in USA, they are all great I think. The one I used is local (No shipping!), very local, we are in the same street  Smiley He works for a company who does 3D printing, supplies for war games and figures. With the agreement of the big boss, the caster can do some extra after his work, using all the workshop's stuff for his own business.
He's very good.

Your styrene hand "milling" skills are quite remarkable.  Color me very impressed.

That is high quality casting, mind you it makes a big difference when the masters are as good as yours .

That's a huge challenge you want to meet with such a project...
Especially when the quality of the work is as good as yours!
I am deeply impressed!

Lucky you!
Beautiful castings, but no casting is better than the master. Really impressed by your styrene work.
