Great theme and fabrication!
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.
I am a great admirer of your work ..
Thank you guys who are following up.
New Partnership and new Banner of the project.
Thanking Thermaltake again for supporting another Casemod project.
new Banner of the project.
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.
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.
After being dry for 3 days, it was very sturdy.
Time to make the cuts. and separate the parts.
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.
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
Love the movie. Love this mod.
I admire your creativity and your skills more and more, and I did follow all your threads here, since you started to post, you don't stay idle long time ... I like complulsive modders, and you hit the bull's eye every time
Modeling clay .
Application of resin and primer.
After the part is already hardened, sanded, application of the fiberglass blanket with resin.
Once you have made the shape, remove the paper mold and getting only the piece in the fiberglass.
Join the 2 pieces from above and below and plicate more resin to pass the plastic mass and modeling mass
Separating the pieces, and applying more fiberglass and then cutting with the Micro rectifies.
Applying plastic mass and modeling mass to make the shapes and curves
Several passes of plastic mass until smooth and remove defects and imperfections at the time of sanding
Applying more modeling mass to get the exact shape.
prime spray paint
Reforço com chapa de alumínio de 3.0mm
After applying the prime spray.
Bottom of the gun.
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.
All pieces already with dry apintura, ready to receive another painting in the style camouflaged
Putting together all the pieces to receive the camouflage.
Next update will be the camouflaged painting.
O acabamento parece excelente Douglas
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!
^ that, times seventy. Dedication !
Dude this is sick. Can't wait to see the final result
Who said old skool modding was dead! fantastic work again takes me back to my bondo glory days
