Pair united!

The boy first time seeing it in action!


#2

Very nice! I wonder how that would turn out in colored acrylic? :grinning:


#3

I need to try other colours! I already had these ‘stolen’ by my boy


#4

They make a bunch of cool fluorescent colors. :drooling_face:


#5

Way cool! Did he like the machine?


#6

Wow. Just incredible in acrylic! Did you have to weld or did everything snug together or…?


#7

What is the overall size of each?


#8

He loved it!


#9

Really look nice together, too!


#10

I had to weld the body but that’s because I had a little warp in the acrylic. The wings locked in but I glued them too since he was already flying them sounding going pew pew and I’m sure he’ll drop them at one point

The Tie Fighter is 2 x 2.5 inch. The X-wing is 4 x 1 inch

Did you have any issues with the svg file? When I try to upload it, I get the unexpected error message. Weird thing is that I had JUST uploaded another svg file like 2 minutes before.


#13

I didn’t have an issue but I did modify the file in Illustrator to separate the two toys and saved them as 2 separate SVGs. Then I imported The files seperately. The original file had both and I wanted to save material.

Thanks for the reply. I tried again and it finally went. I’m gonna do this as soon as I get home today. Pew Pew Pew.
