So, i got some time and a few beers yesterday..

.. so i made this.


a body for my evil m project. It was modelled by my friend with the drawings i found on pbnation ( i think ). And as somebody said they are not 100% correct so we measured and fixed some of the dimensions. Buuut.. As it turns out we didnt still get them 100% correct..



The feedneck surfaces are bit offcentered. Not too much though as the threads didnt extrude the body
But im not completely satisfied on the body, so it will go on the BST-section soon after ill measure the bugs and fix the 3d-model. A bit nitpicking but im annoyed by the fact that there are errors and i can make a better job on the next body...

Also i have to buy a proper ballend mill so i can mill between the pipes and around the iron cross better.


I sanded most of the toolmarks off with 400 grit paper, so there will be more sanding and buffing ahead. But nothing that time and a case of beer wont fix..

But yeah..If someone is interested on the body PM me.

Haha, yeah thats what some old folks say... Maybe they are on to something
But whats the fun in that? The excitement of possibly messing up a 75$ blank is priceless..

If you don't mind, I would love to get the corrected dimensions.

Isn't there some kind of plastic or foam or something that is nice to the tooling that you can run though and check for inconsistencies before making chips for real?

there sure is. but in this case when i made this body from dcs blank and pbnations drawings i think it wouldnt have been a huge help for me. the test piece should have had the holes in it ready made, then i would have had noticed the errors.
oh well..

you would have noticed the feed neck was out-of-round?

oh, but it is round, but the surfaces around it are offcentered to the feedneck hole. Less wall thickness at front, more on the back.
we only modelled the surfaces around the holes on the body.
But yeah, next one should be better.
Maybe....
i hope so...

You could always go through some Merlin extrusions as well. It looks good minus the small imperfections.
