    The colour notwhitstanding, and, personally I really like that crisp, vibrant red, I feel you could see this test as 100% successful..!
    The details are crisp and sharp, the part looks clean with no air bubbles or imperfections whatsoever..!

    This part is beautiful..! Seems like your vibration table is performing perfectly..!

It's a nice impact resistant resin, but I'm going to test another one that has similar characteristics, but doesn't take as long to cure. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...1f9d4db42f.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...d48dd929cb.jpg

    Oh no, more updates I tested a new resin. It didn't work to my expectations, although, I did get another test part out of it. The part actually turned out well, just have to work out the process a little better. I added a few of the extra parts of the separate pieces. The colors aren't the final color choice, they are also test pieces.

    This is, without a doubt, the greatest fan-made project I can think of. Your patience, craftsmanship and attention to detail are off-the-charts.

    Yeeeeep! So few updates!

    I work on this in my spare time. That of which I don't always get enough of. Anyhooooo.

    I managed to assemble enough pieces to get it to actually roll on the treads. I hooked the motor up and held a battery in place and it actually worked. I couldn't let it roll on its own for too long because most everything was held in place by shear willpower

    There are some issues I need to address, however, they're minor considering it actually worked like I intended.

    Sorry for not posting any updates in a while. My time was consumed by something a little more important, but I have an update now

    Please excuse the crazy look of this. I tried to assemble the project out of test parts.

    Enjoy

    To quote Dr. Ian Malcolm:

    "You did it! You crazy soandso, you actually DID it!"
