    Re: Squee's Workbench

    I keep wanting to add to this GM. Its such a great canvas to practice/refresh some skills in scratch building.

    I was pretty much done minus some cleanup...



    But staring at it, i thought the shoulders could use some additions.

    I made a template using masking tape that i transferred to styrene. Then i just tacked it to the part w/ a drop of CA glue. Once i scribed it i just pulled it off and sanded the glue off. I'll clean up this line a bit more later but its deep enough that after sanding i can always touch it up. And i realize after taking the picture, i have the templates backwards lol That's why i made a styrene template, so its reversible for all sides.



    The hook parts on the shoulders were a bit bland, so i'm making them heat sink ports/exhaust. I've since cleaned up the fins since last night, i have to fill in the sides where it meets the inside of the green plastic, since those are angled.

    Re: Squee's Workbench

    I certainly need to try to make my own template. Is that styrene simpler to cut then the Plaplate by Tamiya? The pieces cut for vents/heat sink look pretty good.

    Re: Squee's Workbench

    Plaplate is styrene. Plaplate is just the name Tamiya uses for their styrene products.

    Re: Squee's Workbench

    Cause I have not tried the brand your using yet. I have been using the Tamiya. I was just wondering, If the cut was any different so I guess it isn't then, lol.

    Re: Squee's Workbench

    I use Evergreen. They're bigger sheets, and more quantity for the same price. Plus US based so generally no import fee tacked on either though sellers or distributors.

    Yup

    Decided to make a little base for this guy. My friend Tim, aka Child of Mecha has made a few scratchbuilt bases and i wanted to try making a simple one, instead of using wood like i normally do.



    I need to get more corner plastic to cap off the edges. Just added a little mesh in the back for like a drainage grate. Currently making little fortifications to make some pipe detail to put underneath. Every little bit adds to it.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I have been working on the head today. Mainly cleaning up the putty i did for the heighted parts. I was looking at the circle parts that go in the sides of the head, and figured they're kind of boring. So i went in my parts drawer and pulled out these parts from the old G-Option minus mold set. It fits perfectly. Only drawback is they're pretty thick and ABS. I spent about half an hour just running them over my file and sand paper to shrink them down. Even in these pics, they're stick out about 1mm more than i'd like to. I'll sand them down some more, but my fingers were hurting lol They're just held in place with blue tack right now, hence them being asymmetrical.

    Also added a second led in parallel with the smd i have in the head. Helps make the light more even inside.

    Re: Squee's Workbench

    That GM is really lookin' spiffy!
    It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. At least, that's what I keep telling myself with all my modeling supplies...
