Re: Corellian Corvette Escape Pod - Yellowscale


I discovered something while going over this drawing. as this is a bevelled cylinder, it means that any intersecting pieces are going to have to be 'cut' into the bevel. This makes an irregular view specifically for the thrusters that stick out of the lower part....I'm working on it, but it is HARD without a 3d modelling program. I might make this with cubes and find the solution that way, it will be more elegant and easier than trying to figure it out with math.

Re: Corellian Corvette Escape Pod - Yellowscale


I found a method that worked with the falcon and yt1275... tubes inersecting hamburgers... i had to create a 3d projection using 2d views.... i can look at my previous drawings, pm and maybe discuss in discord...

Re: Corellian Corvette Escape Pod - Yellowscale


I did the same thing, but there is a slight problem with that method relating to the way pixellated circles get smaller. I think the only reliable method is to create a physical model with blocks for that small intersecting area.

I am going to do that for the CR90 as well as it has a lot of curves too

I am building a plan view 'construction cage' for this. I hope to have an update before christmas.

Re: Corellian Corvette Escape Pod - Yellowscale


So I have been restructuring the schematic to be in line with SWDA established design techniques and have been rescaling it to the M100 scale system. While doing this, I was reviewing how I determined the scale in the first place.

Based on drawings by Mike Marincic (which are awesome) there were several conclusions made in regards to the size based on a few assumptions. Most specifically that the specs for these things are typically rounded off to be more digestible for the average layman (I guess).

To make a long story longer;
21.29 feet was decided to be the actual size of the escape pod, which made it 6.49m long (or tall). This was at the old bluescale system which is a conversion from metres to feet, to metres again. This will cause inaccuracies, so I decided to keep what I have and just go with metric so that it is easier to calculate.

That said, my current drawing's dimensions at M100 are as follows;

Diameter: 3.25m
Height: 6.38m (gear retracted)

this represents a difference from the original scale of 11cm or 1.72%

I think that this is acceptable considering the initial assumptions regarding the size that we went with in the beginning, and I am not going to start from scratch on this.

Anyway, please feel free to comment. If you have an alternative theory for the scale of this craft, I would love to hear it.

Updates will be coming again during the X-mass break. I am currently working on how the thrusters intersect with the hull, and the panel line distortions along the cylindrical part as the lines reach the edges. stay tuned.
thanks.

Re: Corellian Corvette Escape Pod - M100 Scale


Okay, so I changed the thread title to M100 scale to more accurately reflect the direction this project is going.

Also, this is a small update where I reformatted the design sheet with the proper SWDA titling and format as well as the current scale and dimensions and a little wink / nod to the future.

Re: Corellian Corvette Escape Pod - M100 Scale


Hey guys,

Here is another update. While going over the details, I decided to start work on the struts and found a discrepency in the detailing of the smaller bits, and the panels. I checked the main hull and it appears to be the correct size and proportion overall....so I guess I'm technically restarting this one anyway... oh well, it will be al lthe better for it.

let me know what you think.
