FR - Pluto, Water and Boom
This article was published Jun 07, 2019.
Been doing some serious thinking about what to do after the monitor and the choice fall on doing RAR locos in 8mm scale. Pluto is first out. This first print looks quite ok, but many details to fix so will have to re-do it once more. Good example of a 7mm drawing meant for ShapeWays which needs a lot changes to work on a home printer ...
After Sölve was done I also started study the harbour and what to do about it. The rather expensive paint I bought for the water looked a bit purple and still to bright, so I added another layer of black and blue in another attempt to darken it. Still to bright and also with a bit green to it, also not intended, but the cheap black I used must have some yellow pigment in it ..
Last is the crane which finally got it´s strings so the boom could be attached. Also printed a small frame for carrying bags and boxes where an alone line does not work so well.
