And a carrier would have to be about the size of a straight rig 18 wheeler if you want it to be to scale.
I would imagine it would involve taking it apart and then getting a mold. Even then I'd imagine you would have a low quality finished product. Then again I dont know much about plastics.Bandit LOAF said:If there's some amazing plastics expert who can take my Rapier and turn it into toys for everyone, they're welcome to come over and do so.
Brilliant.Maj.Striker said:No, a lot of plastic resin models are now made using 3d models in a more popular format (I think Autocad is the biggie right now). theoretically, it would be as simple as making a 3d model...and having access to some extremely sophisticated industrial plastic molding equipment.
You've never built any biplanes then. Trust me Eindeckers, Dri Deckers and DeHavilands have to have some if the thinest joins i've glued. Right glue no problems, especially the rapier's wingtips. It's all well and good to make one of ships, the real kickers in getting it out to the masses especially with so few designers/crafters and such. The average GW model kits takes about 9 months to finish from concept to production you know.They'd be REALLY fragile and easely breakable.
