Before I really got into it, I had a couple of things printed in WSF and they do NOT clean up nicely for masters. Good for small one-offs if you just want some army builders, so to speak. Now I always go with FUD. Hands down the best they offer. My Gozanti (350+2256), Dreadnaught (4222+10k), ISD Dom...

It's a good idea to read through their design guidelines for each material, too. Knowing the limits of a design for any final output medium is essential.

White strong and flexible is not good for masters. It is very difficult to sand the resolution lines down. They do offer a polished version, but again it's very hard to work with it. It's also not as detailed as you might want to get for masters. Frosted Ultra Detail is the way to go IMHO.

Hooray!! I finally beat the one-day build challenge! I circled and circled on a subject and finally came to Eduard’s 1/4 Bf110C Instrument Panel. A few months back I picked up the Royal Class Bf110 pack and this was included. Since the initial release the dashboard has actually been packaged as its ...

But remember to keep it black and white and use the parallel projection view. That way any perspective effects will be negated.

Shapeways (haters gonna hate) offers an "image extruder" process. Basically it can take a black and white image and print it to whatever your specs are. Material choice might be limited...but worth some research.

Eh, I'd say close enough. A+ for effort on the 24 hr push.
I like those highlights though, if you were to do a really light overcoat it might cinch them up perfectly.

good work!

Yes, I'll be screwing it to the base. In fact, it's screwed in right now but I'd like to finish up the model before finishing the base. Eventually there will be a hole cut out for a 9V...I'm even thinking about adding a few Death Star panels or something. But that wouldn't be consistant with the shi...

This is the 6" version on my AMT Star Destroyer. It's study as heck. I wish I could have found a more streamlined/slim one at the same length though.
