    Ultimate Ironman Pep's (Now Unfolding)

    as stated in many of my other threads, necro posting is allowed. I'm in and out of the 405th, and RPF now do to my job. Sometimes its 4 months before I can update anything. A lot of these files still need unfolding, however I am finally caught up to this project, so you may see many posted soon...

    For the modelers out there who need help unfolding

    For a dxf you could add the text via a drafting program such as autocad. Again since a pdf is already flat, pepakura wouldn't really even be needed to scale or print the file. Of course you could also add text in a pdf editor if that is your only problem. Or simply write the numbers on it when...

    For the modelers out there who need help unfolding

    This can actually be done depending on the pdf. Line drawing pdfs can be converted into dxf files, which can then be imported into pepakura. That being said, there isn't much you could do with a dxf file in pep as it is already flat. You can scale it, but you could do that native in autocad or...

    Still making slugish progress. Got the new frame welded together (based on a mixture of the Jag frame and the senna wooden frame). Started dry-fitting skins to see if the new frame will work (So far so good). And started welding together some 12ga steel feet. These are based off of the Jag...

    More minor progress. Got the Front skins cut out and glued. However i will be re-gluing them since the super glue didn't hold very well. Planning on using acetone to plasti-weld them together. Also cnced a new set of shoulder hubs. I kinda liked the Imperial Cog look on my dome plate so I...

    After some thought, and some carefully collected Alum scrap, I decided to go ahead and do all Alum legs. Started the welding process today. Will have more pics tomorrow of a completed set of legs (I hope).

    Well I decided that I didn't quite like how the arm brackets parts turned out so I made some tweaks and routed out some "testers" from particle board. I like the fit so I'm gonna go get some stronger wood to make the final parts. Check em out... While I'm routing out the rest of the frame...

    Double post ;) Just got the hardware. Had to cut down some 1/4-20 All-thread since I could find any 1-1/2" Threaded studs locally. Here is the Frame so far. Still have to drill and tap the Front 1/4 x 1 Parts and the utility arm parts but the main frame is coming together nicely. My son...

    Not a lot of work but I got home early enough to do some machining on the frame parts. Here are some shots of me machining down the "Jag 11" arm assembly parts. This is mostly clean up work to smooth out the pieces. That way when I put the skins on there wont be any imperfections :)
