Here is my Laser cut Styrene Dome, I thought I took a picture of the before I popped out the panels but I didn't so I have the after pictures. I started on this 3 weeks after my Surgery, after I popped the pieces out I sanded all the pieces and the Dome. The Dome is awesome but, The laser cutter got off on some of the panels, so I will have to sand more and make up for the difference. I only need to do a little sanding on the inner to get it to fit together properly and the I will start putting the pits in it to smooth it out, More to come.
Here is my Inner and Outer skins being prepped to glue I was scared at first glueing the skins, because it is so easy to melt. I taped my skins on R3 but since I am building Dave's way I had to glue them. And to my surprise I did good I haven't melted anything yet ;o ) it is turning out good, but I'm not finished yet. I will post more when I finish glueing all of it.
Well I am finally gonna posts some of my progress, I started my Frame the week of Christmas and finished it Saturday. It was pretty easy doing it the Dave Everett way ;o )....
I did get one of my pieces crooked and then had to cut it back out and redo, but now it's finished.
