I’ve broken this thread out from my previous one to limit confusion and also to hold me accountable to finish this thing. Stapleton Cobra with GMProps Electronics Phaser Kit
After building out the Cricket and Cobra from Stapleton, I found a resin type three to complete the armory. As you can see, it needed SIGNIFICANT help.
After seeing this styrene scratch build TNG/DS9 Type III phaser rifle - styrene scratch build , I decided to use the new maker space at our library to help with my build. All components were measured off the resin model and hand drawn. I then broke down the drawings into 2D sheets in Inkscape. That has been imported to Easel for milling on a Carvey.
I’ve finally gotten the settings and I believe the measurements- we’ll find out. I’ve got 4 more sheets to mill, and then we’ll start assembly.
Here’s the WIP on my first styrene scratch build:
More to come in the weeks ahead. Any tips or tricks as I go along are always welcome. We’ll see how well I do.
