    Looks like a computer panel or something.
    I'm not sure what is Duncan building, though.
    Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
    Let me show you just what I'm made of
    Simple curiosity trying to take a bite of me
    Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

    Manowar, since these panels are cast in clear, are you going to backlight the monitors and buttons? When will you have a mock-up? I have been waiting for a Classics Attak Trak for many years!!

    It's actually 3D printed in clear, only because that was the type of resin that was in the machine at the time. I've been working on a model for the last few months, and trying to test print parts. It's deceiving when you have a 3D model that you can view 10 times the size. The details really show. Then you print it out, and smaller details just disappear. So, I have to exaggerate the smaller details so they show up when printed out.

    I really tried to take notes with what the 4 horsemen did with the Battle Ram when making a model of the Attak Trak. I tried to capture all the details of the original, building up the stickers as actual relief, and adding a few extra details in some of the dead space.

    Here's another part. I noticed some issues with it, but there were only a few small changes.

    Skeletor is doing a little comparison of the turret blasters... although, he sees a few changes that need to be made to the prototype

    This doesn't show up particularly well because of the material it was printed in. I actually had it printed through Shapeways. I have to do some post clean up work on it. Skeletor is checking it out.

    Wow, this IS turning out extremely exciting..! Can't wait to see more..!

    And, of course, the 1000000 dollar question is, if you've contemplated selling kits, once you're done..!
    Or will the printing price be too hefty..?

    Printing is expensive, but the masters are printed, and then they're used to make molds and cast in resin. So, just for perspective, this single tread printed through shapeways was $68. The print quality is good, but not great, and requires clean up. I have other options for printing to explore.
