This is coming along great!    If you are looking to get approved with it, they might call out the print lines on the inside of the round ear cup things.   The texture looks good on that bucket.

oooh thanks I didn't think of that.  I'll take a look at them tonight.
If that the case I could just dump some of my casting resin inside and let it self level. I've done that in past with some impossible to sand places.

I looked at a few different options for smoothing the ear bud print lines. I ended up settling on the slush resin cast I talked about. Added a tiny amount of 65d casting resin and slush cast it until the were smooth. Happy with the results

Alright getting close to the final legs here! I mounted the ear buds and started on the checks. Ran into some issues on the left check because the acetone ate through the paint and made a mess. I’m going to need to repaint that one and try again.  I used some craft foam for the circle details under the “cheek” pieces because it needed to be extremely thin and flexible to mount down properly.

Just need to do some paint touch ups but I am pretty much finished the build. So this is the point we’re welcome the vicious knit picks! Lol









.... and just for fun here is a comparison shot to my attempt in this build 6 years ago using the original pepakura file firefek made up for me. I used that pep file and reworked it into a 3D model my printer could work with.
