    Re: Zaku's WIP's

    So i did a little work to the chest parts. i added some vents and some little details then primed them. there are some spots that still need putty and sanding but once i get that done ill be ready to cast copies. i think i will lengthen the side skirts to meet up with the front skirts then cast copies of those to. i prefer the way it looks. the center chest part is still kickin my butt though. getting it symmetrical and all the bevels even is proving to be difficult. i took a piece of pla-plate and heated it with my lighter and formed it over the part then glued and clamped it. then puttied it all up and have been fiddling with it here and there. the pics kinds suck but not much to show off at this point anyways so whatever.

    Re: Zaku's WIP's

    Who me? nawww i dont build kits i just ADD all over them. hahahah.


    Hey i got the idea from the Zaku FZ. and before you even mention the head vulcans Garma did it before even the gundam.

    - - - Updated - - -

    im completely drawing a blank as far as panel lines on them go. i pencil something in and its always to much or to little or giving it an affect like it was not engineered like that just cobbled together. panel lines have a huge affect on the overall feel of a part. Ill get it right one of these days lol.

    If you can pull the volcano out when you cast the head. and just make new vulcans for each head. It will be difficult to cast them correctly without the correct tools. What else is played for this guy?

    Re: Zaku's WIP's

    pull the vulcans out? no they are permanent. im going to give it a shot but like you said i doubt it will turn out. hopefully the chest parts will though. im going to build a vacuum camber for making resin molds and plaster molds because casting stuff is something ive been wanting to get into with my metal working hobby also and ive had a problem with voids in stuff with any detail.

    and for this guy ive got some weapons im working on making look good. and the overall plan is to have a fireteam. this guy with the Vulcans will be platoon sergeant. ive got some shins made for a breacher/CQC guy. going to armor up one of the cast copies of the chest for him and do up one of those shot guns that came with the MG Kampfer. then build a machine gunner (im still thinkin about this guy) a designated rifleman/Sniper i was lookin at a frame arms rifle i think would be awesome for him. and a communications/electronic warfare guy. with a huge radio pack and high and low frequency jammer pods and all kinds of stuff.

    Re: Zaku's WIP's

    so after looking into it and doing my research and taking to my instructors ive decided im going to get into plastic injection molding as a hobby. nothing huge production scale or anything but im working on buying a ram EDM machine. (from a kit. http://www.homebuiltedmmachines.com/) and saving up for a mill and lathe (most likely rebuilt). i have a PC now that is decent enough to run Mastercam well. so ive been learning and practicing. this is the first PC ive had sense like highschool. lol. this is another one of those really long term projects that take years to get everything you need and get it done as well as the incredibly steep learning curb. ive gotten to the point where i can speak the lingo now. and understand whats what im just dying to actually do it. also my dad does not ride his bike anymore so he gave it to me. so ive been modding it and working on it a lot. so yea thats some of what ive been up to.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also after i get an echo trigger before they get banhammered im getting a california air tools compressor with a tank Squee recomended

    WOW this thread is still here!??!
    Actually that injection molding thing looks like it will be cool, but a lot of work. Let us know how it goes.
