Barnes Wallis geodetics skinned with Rhino ...best way?


#1

Hi, V5
could Rhino be used to lay skin over a geodetic structure then apply ‘dope’ and have it pull it in slightly to give the classic Wellington wing surface effect ?

Anyone care to show the effect matching the real thing ?

i would be interested in what exactly you are looking for, do you want to apply a surface over a geodetic structure and have it cover the surface like minimal surface would do?


#3

I’m guessing this is what Steve is trying to achieve.


#4

yes, but he writes that he wants to layer a skin over this geodetic structure,
so maybe he wants to explain that a little closer

Hi,
I want the end result to look like a skinned wellington or Vickers Wellesley where the surface has dipped slightly , the dope when it dries pulls the fabric inwards, there is a slight sag between frames, though its drum tight, not sloppy. So one sees lots of diamond dippies !
Look at the Trumpeter 1/48 kit of the wellington, they have overdone the effect.

Nice pic by the way, a link to its source would be appreciated. :grinning:
