Hey Sabi - sorry about all the spam replies to this topic.  Great looking scratch builds!

That is awesome.  As Hunter said, wish I had a friend like that (though if I have my way, I'll be getting a mini mill and mini lathe soon).

Your idea of modding the gun clip to hook up to a socket on the back of the figure is an interesting idea - I say go for it!

As far as lighting of the eyes, I think the fiber optic idea is the way to go - sending all the optics and battery to a back pack is interesting - maybe instead of hooking the gun clip to a socket on the back of the figure, it hooks up to the back pack (a reason to have the back pack), and the back pack houses the battery and LED for the eyes?

Besides being always impressed by your work, and anticipating your next updates, I would love to see pictures of your shop, the equipment you use, and the set ups you have to create exquisite masterpieces such as these!

Seriously though, has a pod-racer feel to it.  Wait a minute...  This has a shape almost like the T-Zero racer from Industrial Mechanika...

It will probably be about the same weight - rotocasting involves putting resin in a mold, but only enough to coat the inside of the mold with maybe an 1/8" of material, and rotating the mold constantly until the resin cures.  This results in a part that is lightweight because it is hollow, but issues can crop up like Joe experienced.  The new parts may actually be a little heavier than the rotocast part, since Joe had to add material in areas to remove undercuts, and probably added features to 'key' the top and bottom pieces together accurately.

This isn't a workshop, since I don't have one right this moment, but I've really had the itch to do some building recently and needed a place to work, that could be put away when I'm done so the herd of four legged furry beasts can't mess with my projects.  So I threw this modeling tray together last night - it's 2' x 2', is three sided for the work area, so projects don't go sliding off of it, and the left and right sides are extended below the modeling surface, so I can use it while sitting on the couch.  Now I just need to dig my tools out of storage...

And the plastic is the correct color...  Very interested in this

Awesome video, here's some shots of the full cg model and some prototype shots...

Using wire nuts as mold alignment pins?  Brilliant!

Here's a cool shot of everything starting to come together. Tentacles in various stages of work.

Yeah, I know this isn't necessarily a traditional model, since, well, it's designed to fly.  But you know what?  The skills needed to do something at this scale are very similar to, and are at least as impressive, if not more impressive, than alot of the scratch building masters we have lurking around here.  Enjoy!

Only thing - and this is a tiny thing - the way you have the diorama set up, makes it feel like the figure has no weight.  A suit that large, when standing still, is going to sink into the ground a little.  But other than that, looks great!

Either a cyanoacrylate or two part epoxy should work to bond disparate materials...
