Nice thread!  I’m currently working on a full-scale BD-1 from Jedi: Fallen Order.  It’s my first 3D-printed model kit, which is cool, because I’ve been able to design and print extra parts, like the power amplifier upgrade on his head.  This model will have LEDs for the eyes and back plate... once I get my soldering skills up to speed.  This is really different from traditional plastic kits that I did as a kid; more filler and sanding/filing, but it keeps my mind off the FallenSaber order that is 6 weeks old, and probably has another 4 to go....

Not sure if this topic belongs here or elsewhere on the forum?

I have recently returned to my old plastic modeling hobby and I figured I would love to share that with others of like mind and obsession. So, before I post…Is anyone else out there who enjoys the same? What's on your workbench? I currently picked up the Bandai 1/12 scale ROTJ Vader…


I hope to hear from you :-)

Model From Thingiverse, Fine_Engineer. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4078727  Has great models, but be careful, because several are designed for resin printing and won't work well for FDM.

Imagur got all screwed up, so Here's a new link to my BD-1 model gallery: www.//imgur.com/a/Tfi0zJ6

I've never been terribly good at soldering, and with 34 LEDs, I'm getting lots of practice!  Got the eyes working!  I think they are too bright, but oh well.  I can turn them off.

I think you meant this link instead.

Anyway, that’s a SICK build!  Well done!

Really nice work on your BD-1! I recently built a "dROYd" based on BD-1, however mine s just a 3D model I rendered images of and isn't quite as complex as the model you have. But Roy as I call him is still helpful around my mancave! If you're interested the link to my post with him is:

Looking forward to seeing your BD fully assembled. Point on the way.

Not sure if this counts for this thread, but before I started collecting lightsabers, I collected, painted and played a tabletop game called Warhammer 40,000.

I've painted thousands of models, but here's just a few:



And I even custom made my Jedi character:
Logged

- Apprentice v4 staff w/ QR coupler in AB - 26" Photon blades
- Sentinel LE v5 in VA w/ Lite Sound & Silver FoC - 32" Purple blade
- Crimson Scorpion in GB w/ V4 sound & Red FoC - 34" Photon blade
*processing* - RGB Aeon v2 - flat acrylic 'Darksaber' blade

Oldest son - Fallen in Tri-Silver w/ v4 Sound - 36" Yellow blade
Youngest son - Dark Standard Issue in BR - 32" Red blade
Wife - Dominix LE v3 in AB - 32" Blue blade

Just finished wiring the rear LED panel today, so I'll be done soon!  I think I made the infill on the head too dense, though, and it's a little heavy...  Nice work on the Blender dROYd, btw!

Nice detail on the miniatures, Galef.  The Jedi is great... But those storm troopers look a lot like Cylons!  😀

Indeed, I was just working with what I had, which was a Space Marine head and an Eldar Gaurdian body. Those were the closest I could find with the models provided in the Warhammer 40K model range.
