    Hi Everyone, here is my latest creation, called THE WICKED WIDOW.
    [​IMG]
    Its just another Alan-Lee typical lean mean badd ass but kicker, evil poison-n-pain mod.
    I love this style.
    its the input set which accompanies the Scratch Build Computer whcih I will also be posting soon called the Black Widow. The black Widow isnt finished yet so here are at least the input devices.
    They consist of a keyboard, a mouse pad and a pen, all in the black widow style.
    They keyboard though is something of a new approach. I thought why not use the size of the revoltec chocolate keyboard to hold a harddisk and usb hub. It also has hdd switch and hdd temperature display. The keyboard, usb ports, temp-display and hdd all work with a single usb cable and have been packed into a wooden casing. I welded the widow nets with 3mm steel rods and even used solder lead to cast the skulls for the mid top sections widow body, the same for the 2 net wings left and right.
    as you can se i stained the wood and then after sealing it with a clear coat airbrushed the widow and flames blending he keyboard in from black to golden shades. pinstriped them and then clear sprayed it again. the same method was used for the perrix mouse pad. i even made a spring holder for the wicked widow pen i made from an old coat hanger which i also airbrushed gold and black accordingly and screwed to the bottom of the caseing. if the pen is not in it then you cant see the holder at all.
    the work is finished now and i can finally get round to posting, sorry it pretty much all in one go. i hope you like it.
    so pictures will be posted soon.

    Next step was to use my nieces halloween plastic skulls as cast forms for the playdoh cast and then cast my own skulls out of soldering lead rods

    I USED SOMPLE SOLDER LEAD TO MAKE MY OWN SKULLS,
    TEMPLATES WERE MADE FROM PLASTIC HALLOWEEN SKULL PRESSED IN PLAYDOH

    FIXING THE SKULLS TO THE METAL WEBS SPIDER WASNT EASY AT ALL
    [​IMG]
    AFTER AIRBRUSHING THE WEBS IN BLACK AND GOLD SHADES, ADHERED THE SKULLS IN PLACE
    AND AIRBRUSHED THEM GOLDEN TOO
    [​IMG]
    BEFORE FIXING THE IRON NETS TO THE CASING, IT ALSO NEED A BLACK AND GOLD AIRBRUSH PAINTJOB
    [​IMG]
    MADE A BLACK WIDOW TEMPLATE WHICH I THEN JUST TRACED OPPOSITELY ROUND BOTH SIDES OF THE TELPERATURE DISPLAY FOR TAPING

    then i realised that the matt keyboard was blended out by the shiny red an gold etc.. so i sprayed it clear and shiny too, looks much better now, it all harmonizes better

    Images should be between image tags:

    [​IMG]

    Don't use text size tags:

    [SIZE=X]your text[/SIZE]

    It just makes your text look huge.

    Moved to modding until you get it all worked out.
