Hi everyone.

I am abit apprehensive about posting this because my models having such in-progress tends to get infinitely stalled. :o  :lol: This is an in-progress since a while cos life got in my way and I've not modeled much for the last 3 months.

And now of cos for the main event. :razz:



Another shot.
Carving.

Done pretty much like the other 1/35 head I've made but this time I have better resources and am using this excellent blue dense foam. Its fantastic to carve.

Will post more when I have progress. :wink:

It's a good idea !!

I  was only thinking about that for almost 6 months but never started to do something.

It's a good work for you (remembering the other works you have done  :shock: )

Have you any idea to make a limited production GK ? :roll:
Don't say you are not able to do something before trying to do it !

Hey that looks pretty dead on to the MG version from what I can see.  Awesome work.  

Did you use any software to help you draw up the profile in the beginning (block of foam).  Looking at the "Gundam Head" display on my desktop, the 2 versions of kampfer looks a little different, mainly lack of "dip" in the mouth area.

My GK dreams are long over. :) Its too hard to make one now unless a GK company is willing to sponsor me. :lol:

I mainly used hi-res scans (thanks to G-man) of the instruction plans and the MG head (thanks to maxwinamp) itself for measurement. Actually many artworks of the Kaempfer head varies, from 'softer' shapes to odd looking bulging head. But I am sticking to the MG version mostly.

Thanks. :) I hope it doesn't get stalled too, I have a problem of wanting to do too much each time and ended up with nothing. :(

Its slightly harder than styrofoam packing materials I guess. But its good because its a homogeneous block of foam that is just happiness to carve. There is another one being sold of seemingly lower density. Beige in color. :)

Yes Sir! Thanks to you this is possible. :)

I did look for that collection but is there a Kaempfer head? If yes, I would sure like to get my hands on it! The bust is being considered. :)

Awesome, maybe now I'll get the gumption to continue my hazel head, I'm a bit of the math retarded type so don't attack me for this, but how do you scale up the measurements?

100/35 = 2.8571 :)

So just scale everything by multiplying by 2.8571

If you have a 1:100 scale measurement, you can multiply it by 100 to get the full-scale measurement.  If you have a full-scale measurement, you can divide it by 35 to get the 1:35 scale measurement.  (So multiply by 100 and then divide by 35 - or, to simplify, multiply by 20 and divide by 7)

Hmm, then, if my hazel head will be 1/35, and is based off of the 1/200 head, how would I figure the measurements then? I'm confused.



PS... sorry to pull off topic.

200/35 = 5.71. Measure the length of the 1/200 head, then multiply it with 5.71.
If the 1/200 head is 10mm in lenght than the 1/35 head will in 57.1mm in lenght. Hope this help :wink:.

Major Blah: Can show more picture of it. Nice!

Thanks Major! It doesn't look like its got much more details that I can use unless the top of the bust can be removed to show internal details?

Lingwendil: Becky is rite, its really quite elementary. Take for example if you are building a 1/20 head based on 1/100. Its pretty obvious that 1/20 is 5 times bigger than 1/100. And how do you derive that mathematically? 100/20 = 5.  :) So for your case its 200/35 = 5.714 to be multiplied on every measurement you take from the 1/200 head.
