Im still new to 3d printing so I have a question. How do you get it that smooth? what did you print it with? All i have tried is pla and everywhere i look at says to use sandpaper but my tests all look real bad and isn't really practical with all the small areas.

Most important is to have a well dialled in printer. I use a CR10, two Ender 3's and an Ender 2 that print really well. The Ender 2 has a 0.3 nozzle which is great for small detail parts. If you get this part right the priming and sanding becomes less of an issue. I wet sand with 180 grit on larger parts and dry on smaller parts. I use blades to scrape parts flat, files and needle files. Anything that works.

There is no easy shortcut just take your time and be patient.

Awesome idea! Only the "nose" looks unorganic and does not fit the rest of the design. Have you considered a more angular/smooth alternative?

Hi.
It is supposed to be a heavily armoured bomber. Kinda like a flying tank. Tanks don't generally look very organic or smooth.
Feel free to remix and come up with an alternative though. ;-)

Hi, you won't have seen it before, it came out of my head (no idea what it was doing in there but it took up a lot of space:) It's a kitbashed model made up of other ships and parts.

Is this an original design or is it from something I'm not familiar with?

nice work! :) waiting for your mech works:)

Nice job! the engine housings remind me of the pillar of autumn from Halo:Combat Evolved :)

That's because they literally ARE the pillar of autumn.
