So I was thinking, maybe I should do something that isn't in the computer.
Bionicles came to mind right away, I love building Bionicles whether it's in 3D or real life. The thing is, I've been building quite a few Bionicles lately and I'm kinda out of parts. If I want to build new stuff, I gotta take apart models from my "official" collection and I hate doing that. I'm also to low on funds to go buying a lot of spare Bionicles/Bionicle parts online. So no Bionicles/Lego either then.
Then I thought of something else, something I've been wanting to do since I was a kid but never really got anywhere. Model RC aircrafts. You know, little electric (some are actually fuel-powered but w/e) aircraft you steer with remote controls. Now that's only part of the plan, the original part of the plan came to me a couple of days ago, I wanted to build a real life working version of one of my custom-designed aircraft, in this case I decided to go for my V-700 fighter. Due to me not being a billionaire I can't just build a full scale replica and so I got the idea to build a miniature prototype instead, besides, that's how they develop real life aircraft anyway.
I realize that some changes in design may or may not have to be made and that it will hardly be an easy task since I have no experience whatsoever building real-life models of things (unless your talking Lego). I did make a papercraft model of Tali from the Mass Effect games a couple of months ago, that lead me to a program called Pepacura Designer (or somesuch) that "unfolds" a paper model of a 3D model which you can then print out and put together, I could try that to start with. Then maybe if the design proves itself maybe I can actually get a proper 3D print of the model and strap some small jet-engines to it. But now I'm getting ahead of myself, let's just start at the beginning. I have already ordered a simple (cheap) RC-model of an F18 Hornet that I'm going to use to get familiar with flying model aircraft. It also has a somewhat similar design to my V-type fighter, more so than your average sport aircraft anyway.
Well ok then, that's it for this random post. If you read through all I just wrote, then I'm so sorry.
Have a nice day!
