Lancaster

Finally got my Lancaster kits, so my docking ring end cap CAD model is complete. Also trying out Maya’s Arnold renderer to render raw styrene plastic. I usually render stuff in KeyShot, but I like playing with new toys…

Docking Ring

I reached enough of a critical mass in the digital kit bash library to digitally assemble the docking ring inserts. I have most of these kits in real-life (except the SeaLab), but the virtual assembly has greatly informed how the parts align and where to cut stuff…

Here is one of my machined docking rings with a laser etched donor plate insert set in place and a paper plating template wrapped around the circumference.
