Mountain of Iron . Long ways to go yet - Vol. II - Holiday progress - yay! . Instead of using my holidays for learning for university (shame on me) I used the time for BD - better said: the first quarter of the middle section. The final result of these two weeks from christmas to yesterday is shown at last. It was my third try on it (like on the base section - last post) But I want to share my way over the three steps to the final result - to clarify: the first two versions was built a few months (#1) and a month (#2) ago. I'm sorry for the bad pictures, I usually use just my phone cam for the WIP-pictures and the light on my working space isn't that good to compensate it... Well, let's start! The next three pictures are version # 1: To that time my reference material wasn't that good like my actual and I made the error to just build without making thoughts of internal structure to hold the weight. That was followed by version #2: As you can see I build a big frame with technic parts. The panels were fixed by pins to the frame. Doesn't work as intended by me: The frame was not flexible enough and I recognized that it would be impossible to place the finished middle-section on the base with such a big frame inside... I had to tear it down and start on new ways and methods to solve my problems... ... interrupted by trying this and that on the panel shape ... ... and a big ugly box full of black to sort (which eaten up two days of my time - *sigh*) ... ... I gone back to work: Those starnge looking parts are necessary for me to type the shape of the finished tower and to know, which panel have to connected in which way another panel. That's the technique now used for the middle section - it works (YAY) - TADAAA! (I try to describe it in pictures in the "Kelso-way" - just without all the yellow arrows in lack of photoshop skills) 1. Inner frame 2. Outer panel 3. Bringing them in right position and fix them with pins! Here a close up of the hinge/pin solution. Next two pictures are the remaining outer panels of the first "big-outer-panel" A view on the different hinges on different levels and panels... And the final result :-) Thanks for viewing! - K. Fourth Age Commentary: Next update will be probably around March, since I have to start on learning for the annual exams on university - and after two excessive weeks of building, Barad-dr and madness... I need a small break to get new creative powers ;-)
