TinkerCAD is great for making 3D models, puts out your file in .stl, doesn't occupy any memory, no software to download, but you must use it on-line. Oh-free also.

It is very simple, but you can get creative to make complex things.

DB, In the world thqa we are currenly experiencing, I have decided to NOT
use any SW not physically stored on my PC.

So a Cloud Program is NOT going to happen.
Call me a Dino, but, with the dorks exercising their apparnt control over the net.
I simply want to stay OFF the radar as much as possible.


Still working on the 3D Model of my version of the Beeker.

As it turns out, getting things Rounded and Smooth is not an easy task.

I have a "sort of" Pilot modeled. sufficient for this sort of model offering IMO.
I did get the inner cavities defined and rounded at the edges.

I've proffered a simple LG mounting mechanism, using a "cavitied" insert for retaing the LG Wire.

Wing options will be UC or FLAT , flat bottomed. With an optional former.

Next comes the Fuse Split up for actual 3DPrinting the parts.

Pilot looks fine. I think the OG pilot is 2D anyway. So the addition of bulging 3D eyes is a huge improvement, now he can see forward!
Amazing job on the fuse, your 3D skills far exceed mine! That fuse will be nice to build with all the corners rounded nicely, looks great.
