Thank you for the compliment! I relied on your blueprint for the majority of the build, but couldn't for the life of me get those recessed areas right so I just went rogue and made custom modifications. And yeah, it would have been extremely difficult to tell anything with all those extra lines added in, so looking back I see why you didn't add them. Thank you for all that information, too, it helps much.Whoah! I just checked out your thread on your 3D model Chevysrule and it's looking great so far!
In regards to your question- You're not missing anything as far as depth goes, orthographic projections can be limited in such regards, especially so when it's something as detailed as the MA37. One way around it is to use "hidden lines" which are a series of dashes to show areas that are blocked by other faces but on the MA37 it would have been more of a mess than a help as there's so many recessed areas.
As a way to help with this I've started including links to all my reference pictures that I use to help show recessed/hidden areas and how different parts relate to each other. Hope that helps.
Will do Juliet! As a matter of fact, I'll soon make a thread showing what I'll be making next. And yes, your blueprints are used. Again.And if anyone else does any builds or models off of my blueprints please feel welcome to post links or pictures in here, I'd love to see what you do with them as I don't get the time to see all the stuff that's happening here on the forums.
Thanks for putting the link in the thread V1p3r, and I can't wait to see more on the combat knife.Will do Juliet! As a matter of fact, I'll soon make a thread showing what I'll be making next...
As promised, here is the link to the progress thread. It's the Reach UNSC Dagger. ^_^
glad you like 'em Storm, I look forward to seeing what you do with them!Thanks for awsome blueprints. I'm going to make a knife soon.
