this morning I found the time to finish this DS9 PADD. The material is grey PVC hardfoam. The graphics are done by me and the size is 9" x 6" x .35".
Very nice Dietrich.
Fantastic job, as always buddy! Definitely going to come to you to get some of these done.
Thanks for the kind feedback Elvis.
It's always a pleasure to see your work, and that grey PVC board is a great colour match! Nice find. I may have to track some diwn for myself. Is it just "grey PVC board" or does it go by a specific name for the colour?
over here I don't have many choices of the colors from this material, so I'm quite lucky that it is nearly authentic.
I didn't know that. Doesn't the shaping alter the color hue?
No, why? I guess that it is similar to this material:http://www.sintrapvc.com/
For the recessed areas I'm using a cutter, various roundfiles and sanding paper.
Very nice, Dietrich! PADDs sure are specialty!
Thanks Richard, you should see them live. Last year I had an exhibition in Longwood, FL.
Beautiful PADD. You are correct; they do look excellent in person.
I'd love to! I know...I can't believe I missed your visit AGAIN!
@richtpit: This year I return on October 14 and stay for three weeks.
I'll mark my calendar right now!
