Them moles are buggers you know!Just an idea for a diarama when you've finished the Wokka.
One of 28 Sqn's Chinooks had to make an emergency landing in a field a couple of days ago. Here's some fine detail of what would make the diarama historically accurate.

The regs say the aircraft must be chocked when the engines are shut down.
It's going ... badly!
The printer has a heated bed onto which the plastic filament is extruded to make the object. The bed moves in the Y axis and the printer head in X and Z. In order for this to work, the object has to adhere slightly to the printer bed. That's the killer because these are thin, narrow sided pieces and are just breaking when I remove them from the bed, I have 1 success out of about 40 printed!
Still, on that basis I just need to print about another 200...
The bonus is that they cost next to nothing to print, the downside is I can only print when I am not working as the bloody printer is quite noisy.
Hopefully so. I usually hold the blade from the sides using both hands, and flex the middle of the blade down flush with the glass - and approach a corner of the object gently. This method does need care, obviously.Thanks, I always let it cool but not tried a razor blade. I will do though as I have been using my usual thin but sharp scraper, it's nowhere near as thin as a razor blade though so that might be all I need to do!
What Trumpeter do and many other manufacturers is have small holes in the casting to represent rivets, which is wrong as we all know rivets are either flat or protrude. In the case of Wokkas, they protrude. I have basically got to fill them all in. Every last one of em........ my level of insanity knows no depth.......
