Echo 3 to Echo 7!
This is my in-progress thread for Odiwan72's excellent Hoth electrobinocular kit. Markus did an excellent job in designing
and casting the parts. It's a pretty straightforward build, and it's going pretty quickly.
For now, here are a couple of shots showing the layout of the parts. Some of them have already been assembled. I also
added small domed faux screws to the visor piece.
I've already put together the 2 main parts of the Simrad. I used 4 screws to hold everything together. Some other
small pieces have already been grouped into subassemblies.
The main body is hollow cast. If it weren't it would probably weigh 10 pounds! All of the voids are perfectly sized to house
the insert parts: the "vacuum tube" part, and the lenses.
I've drilled holes in appropriate locations to secure some of the detail parts using screws. A couple of the pieces, like
the lenses, will be glued in place after painting. More to come!
