@TheOnlyAaron brings his SketchUp mind tricks to the axes this week as he models a scout walker from the Star Wars universe! How will he recreate the mechanized chicken of the Galactic Empire?
The answer to that (and many references from
@jody) are on SketchUp Live this Friday. See you there!
YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
Tihs was a fun model! Modeled from scratch from a (so-so) reference drawing. In this live model we focused on:
Modeling compontens from mulitple reference images
Modeling half of a symetrical component to save work
Creating points from which to rotate components to make it easier to pose models
Starting with basic geometry, then returning to add additional detail
Woot! I love me an At Sit.
Timing timing timing…never works for me.
As promised, here is the model!
Good session guys, Thanks again.Aaron and Jody. No lasers though
Surely this was about a week early, May the Fourth would have been more appropriate.
I made a Warhammer walking tank with my son during lockdown.
It was a pretty faithful copy of a model kit that he has.
It’s a pretty shameless ripoff of a Star Wars AT-ST but I like the fact that it’s diesel powered!
Why did you wait until
now to present this? I started my project a couple years ago! Your video would have been so helpful.
Inconsiderate, I calls it.
Since May the Fourth falls between two Fridays, we thought it would best to do Star Wars models this week AND next Friday!
Have you seen his LEGO Millennium Falcon? That one is mind blowing.
SO, after seeing the amazing model created by
braders82 over on Reddit I decided that I needed to follow suit. A lifelong Lego and Star Wars fan, I have been coveting the Millennium Falcon kit (#75192) since it was released. Unfortunately, the $899 price tag has prevented me from actually OWNING this set… next best thing? Model it in SketchUp!!
I downloaded the PDF instructions and started modeling each piece, then adding them to the model. Here is a look at Bag #1 completed!
Amazing, and best of all you don’t step on any of the pieces in the middle of the night when going to the bathroom.
