In my initial post in this series I showed you what was in fact just one half of the basic model that I am making. The reason for this is simple, as the pistol is generally symetrical in design I began the model by creating just one side - the right side - which I would copy and flip in order to make the other.
I have now finished the first side and am ready to copy it and to join the two halves. Having done this I will have to go around the model erasing the seam between these halves. I can then start to detail this unified body, adding elements that are specific to either side.
The actual level of detail - and indeed the whole accuracy of this model - is only moderate, as the purpose of this model is just for me to practise my elementary Sketchup skills. There are parts of this model I am not entirely happy with, but am ignoring these inaccuracies as not important considerations.
This is my first YouTube effort, and although it isn't exactly a gripping use of that medium, it is actually handy to show the model 'in the round' and how the two halves have come together. I hope to be adding more and more movies to Milgeek as time goes on - though, hopefully, ones which are a bit more exciting than this one!
