    Hello Friend.
    Thank you.
    In this project, I'm using aluminum for the first time. I enjoyed working with it, I would do a different painting, but it did not work, I ended up using sticker, but the edges appeared.
    Some parts make it the base of Casemod, the laterias, support of the motherboard and so on, soon make sense, I'm running to finish until the end of January, where the Casemod championship started here in Brazil. I reveal what I'm going to do.
    Thank you

    I'll be doing a new experiment in making Casemod, using fiberglass. and modeling.
    As I have never done so, I'm doing the way I did, I know I have other techniques that would even be better, but it is with mistakes that one learns, the next I will do better ...
    I tried to do a test with the pepakura technique, but it did not work out, and since I have little time to finish before Campus party, pepakura has to train to catch the morning.
    I used a lot of different material, which is found anywhere. Come on.

    If anyone has watched this movie The Fifth Element, it will remember the weapon made by villain Zorg.
    Manufactured by Zorg Industries.

    Some scenes from the movie. And what I'll try to do.

    I used slab styrofoam (those that replace the slab slab before filling concrete).
    I pasted 3 plates to start modeling.

    After modeling the styrofoam .usei paper towel, plastic film and white glue to model over, create a shell and pick up the format.
    [​IMG]

    After drying, I made the new process now with shredded paper and white glue until it created a thick, sturdy layer.
    Shredded paper, and brushing with glue.

    Now expect to dry and harden.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    After being dry for 3 days, it was very sturdy.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Time to make the cuts. and separate the parts.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To get the shape of the tip I used a cap of an old inhaler that had it right.

    Here all the pieces ready and cut.

    Now pass resin and apply the fiberglass.

    [​IMG]
    There are few photos, but I think I understand the whole process, I summarized what was done.
    This is a very difficult project and without knowledge, sorry some things, photos and my English translated by google

    I made the markings with a fine-tipped wrench, as there is a lot of plastic passes so the risks were nice.

    Spray paint in gun colors from the original film (The Fifth Element).

    After so much sanding, pass dough again, until taking out all the imperfections, finally, time of the final painting, and more finishing after the spray painting.

    I love how ghetto this is and how nice it still turns out. Mad respect for filing those parts. Been there and got me really crazy. Kudos!
