Quote from: lespaceplie on Feb 06, 2015, 07:31 pmTony has already done an excellent job with the Brachacki, but I will include an abbreviated version of it in the simple style of my own plans just to complete the set.
Quote from: lespaceplie on Feb 06, 2015, 07:31 pmS14 is a pickle. I'm not at all convinced by the plans that are in the forum right now, but I haven't nailed them either. The way the lower panels adjoin the plinth is very clunky and ambiguous in the reference materials on hand.
Quote from: galacticprobe on Feb 07, 2015, 05:19 pmTony's drawings for the original Brachacki are magnificent! The research he's put into making them went above and beyond. Not to mention that he got quite a few measurements from Chris (celation) who I think researched this console eight ways to Sunday for his replica! I was just wondering if you were planning to make a "skeletal" (i.e. plain line drawing) of the Brachacki for the dims as I thought you might ask Tony if he would let you use his drawings for your detailed set.

Quote from: lespaceplie on May 19, 2016, 03:37 pmAnother key is the proportion of the hexagons on the belt. If that part really is 7 cm (not including how far the panels stick above and below) and the hexagon intervals are simple dims, then I'm thinking I got it right.
