Seems like it's going to be a master piece of art
I wish I had a workshop like this!
It is not so heavy.
I move it like this way.
And as told a new update. Before grinding of the polyester (red material ) I use a grinder, by hand this hardly a option
That is going a bit faster by hand
Oke this far beyond finished, still in the buildings fase
There need tob e some changes on the top. Just putting a layer extra on it ( again )
This has to cure, sol ets grind
For the curves I use the Dremel
Still there are peaces where I cant use the Dremel, then I still got the file
Also here a lot has to be done but it has a good shape now
Also using the file for its legs
And then the transfer from its leg to its body looks likes this
Is it still possible to lift this thing how heavy is it going to be …….
Well I told you earlier it is going to be heavy, but it still possible to lift see
One thing, in the last photo the head looks oversized for the body.
It looks like you have the attention to detail to pull this off, not many people would be able to.
See the logo from pov his head is also oversized.
The polyesterfibre needs aprox. 12 hours to really cure. So what is done the day before is now able to be finished
The Top still wasnt what I really want ( still peaces wich were dirty ). Now it is gone
@ the same time with the polyester I made the shape of the wing
Then further withe transfer of the head to neck
One of the difficult peaces to plaster. Really impossible to do with a plasterknife because the plaster is on the bottem of the knife. Then a blob on the brush and spreading it.
On the other side of its head are also coming some of this bombs. The first one aprox there.
The second one there
Plaster is cured a little faster, so now we are going to grind
For some peaces I use the file with wrapped around it a peace of grindpaper.
But usaly I am doing it first by hand, then you can really feel if you are going well qua shape.
With a file you are only able to seee it.
If a might say myself, the head is starting to look very well. Its Shoulder is also been done with plaster, this is to get rid of the weldings etc.
And agiang going to grind.
And also this peace looks better then before.
Enough for today. See ya all tomorrow
Ah yeh i see what you mean. Pretty accurate representation you have managed to get there
very nice work inded loking forward
This is a great work of art!
I can only do my best.
Thanks, more pictures today.
yes it starts to look like art with a pc inside.
Maybe this will be the beginning of a new trend "The art of casemodding"
An another day for file
And more and more file
Only just cheking if I am still in the good direction.
I am in the good direction but still not good enough. For the change I am brushing instead of file.
Also beginning to start putting the first layer on its Face
I again made to much of it, no problemo I can use it here.
I already worked the nail yesterday. Today I am using the file to work it better.
A little bit ontop and also this one is almost finished.
Also brought on the first layer around its ear, I maybe got a lot of patience but I almost ran out of it here
What is the differance with the top photograph ????? On the left down its ear I went to low but now not any more.
Still a little bit and fase 2 of its head is finished The biggest part.
Sometimes things go well and sometimes things go wrong. I kicked a peace of its wing, stupid me. It was only attached with a well-knit, I was forgotten to weld it.
BUt thnx to a auxiliary troop in the shape of a weldingdevice, its attached in notime.
I had to turn because on the other side I have more light. So I took the liberty to make a distanced photograph of it. No success imo, you cnat see any detail.
Going inside as fast as I can and going further with the grindingmachine
Just one layer with the brush
And again scrubbing.
Made another bumb @ its ears
Then I going slowly downstairs to its legs. First a big klot of id.
After the brush is been there….
Then continue with its tail.
I tell you: later alligator, the day is long not gone…. Maybe I am putting tonight a second update online.
For me it has the shape of a dog with wings
Sometimes you are so busy you kinda forget to make pictures. The Dremel fase is because of this reason not been photographed. The ones with grindingpaper is.
Also here you have to clean it with thinner to make sure you can look if everything is symmetric.
The backside has already been fixed with plaster ( already ).
Left nothing has been doen yet, rightside the first layer of plaster.
It looks so easy, but this also a hard job to do, the thickening on its nail.
The combination brush and plastic plasterknife is not as succesfull as I hoped it was.
Then Ill try it with 2 platic plasterknifes. In this fase it is already curing otherwise it wont work
Then you can put a bit more pressure on the material and slowy pull it to the front. The plastic plasterknifes are living of the thinner otherwise the polyester stays on the knifes.
The shape is finished. First lettin git cure
Rightaway start doing its tail with the grinder.
So then after doing that slowly putting the plaster on it.
On the right side of its mouth it needs to get some little more plasterfibre, but i ran of that. So then I am going to strat with the last layer of plaster to fill up the little holes. Before the liquidplaster goes over it. OFcourse again I made to much of it, I only need it for its mouth.
Then I just put the rest on its head.
This is grindig itself very easy, so this makes it a bit easier.
En nog meer schuren.
And then almost everything is away again,
And an other one of the other side
Seem you have unlimited skills!! gj
not being mean or any thing, but when i saw ur drawing i thought this was goin 2 turn out bad. But fukin hell was i wrong, dude ur ace! can wait to se it finished
keep up da gd work
I just bring those empty cans to the carbidge dumb.
Meanwhile the polyester has cured, time to file.
Just to put a new layer on it
This has to cure so lets work on its claws to get rid of some junk with the Dremel
This is a peace of Dremel advertising, becauso also @ its elbow ( I jsut calling it that way ) is the Dremle very handy to use.
But to get it nice and smooth……. Grinding it by hand.
And also @ its leg the Dremel comes inhandy.
Just to be able to put a new layer on it.
And ofcourse we have to grind again.
Now it is starting to look like a claw imo.
Just looking if the radiator still fits, and it does
Slowly the front is almost covered in plaster.
Let see if photo 300 is coming online today. Its still early so who knows.
Meanwhile the plaster is cured so the transfer can now be grinded.
First processing the transfer from body to case with a file.
Then we are starting to get rid of the seals.
Also with the other side.
His other leg is now also got a klobb of plaster.
The brush does the rest.
And the last peace of its head in the plaster.
Just a little bit of plaster job. Some ajustment @ the difference in plaster and I am off to the next fase. See you all tomorrow.
Great work, I want to see the rest..
Just a little bit of plaster job. Some ajustment @ the difference in plaster and I am off to the next fase.
Filing the nail first
Then grinding, looks like there is now end for this work.
The second one is better then the first if I might say
This is the polyesterfibre.
Adding some curing
And alos mixed.
Now lets go on with grinding its but of the body.
The curving with the file.
Then adding some grindpaper @ the file.
With a few points almost finished to add some sprayplaster, so after this we can spray.
Only its shulder needs the plaster fixed on it. @ its back is already been fixed with a layer.
Sometimes it looks like if plaster looks better then if its not been grinded.
But sometimes it does
And what do you think of the tip of its tail............ looks worse doesn’t it?
Also here counts that plaster can make a differance. NotI am here
Also its right claw is now being fixed with a secind layer.
Adjusted the left a bit.
Right side of its nose had to be done too. Also here are knobs but Ill do that some other time.
Also the backisde is now fully been plasterised.
Lets go on with the structure of the piramide en spraying the inside of the case, but before doing this make sure averything is dustfree.
See ya later
