I've been lagging behind on progress with this (and other) projects because I've been in the middle of a move. I've either been totally away from the workshop or had half of my tools in a different location, so it's been slow going. However, I have all of the principal pieces assembled: gluing the 6 or 7 pieces that make up the screen cover was a real chore.
When working with the LED holder that goes on front, I was unhappy with the print quality with it because it has a number of overhanging parts. I decided to go ahead and print a new one on one of the 3D printers that the makerspace has. It's a giant homebrew printer and the prints that come out of it are way better than what I was seeing before.
This part will need to be acetone washed, but thankfully the print is nice enough that I won't need to do much work on it after. Yay for round parts!
As far as the rest of the pieces, now 3 large parts total, they're being primered and will be getting the usual sand-and-fill.
I am probably going to hit everything with a few coats of paint for AMMF just to wear it, but I won't consider it done and won't be molding it then. There still needs to be some work done making everything look nice. One of the guys at the space calls me a perfectionist because I am worrying about smoothing out and filling in the gaps on the inside even though "nobody will see it". Amateur!
