Fun with Gray Putty!!!!
As a result of several factors(One being that I am new to this fiberglass) is that the fiberglass came out a bit bumpy. So the idea is that I covered the surface in this Gray Bondo Putty(See the last 3 pics) and that should smooth things out after some sanding. So I should find out this weekend just how well that idea works.
Final Batch of Unfinished Body Pictures
For the last set of body pictures - You have:
The Top Half is Done
Check out the latest pic. Just click the back button on the photo gallery. The top half of the object has been fiberglassed. If I have the time tomorrow, I am hoping to get the two halves together.
Fun With Fiberglass
I had some time over the weekend to start working with the Fiberglass. I have tacked two more pictures into the queue. Just use the back button to venture back to see them.
Its been a long time
Its been a long time since I worked on this project, but it is time to get back into the swing of things. I purchased the fiber glass which will be used to build the hull of the object. Check out the last three pictures in line and you will see some of the components used in construction. I did not have time to actually apply the fiberglass.
Lets Give it Some Weapons
Three more pictures are up - #12 through #14. These pictures show the early stages of weapon construction. The weapons are built from rather simple parts. I start with some Table Tennis balls, then cut them in half with my hobby knife. Each one of these half balls will become a standard weapons turret. In the last pictures, gun barrels of various lengths are attached to the turrets to represent different weapon systems. And yes, those gun barrels are made of straws.
These are some teaser pictures for something I am working on for an upcoming episode of the Tabletop Battlefield. Take a look and see if you can figure out what it is. Be sure to leave a guess on the right.
