  1. Garmilas Astro Battle Cruisers

    Cool ships Will, look good for such a crazy fast build! Very impressive as speed is not something i associate with my modeling these days!
  2. Parallel universes

    So cool seeing an RAF x wing! Great concept well executed
  3. Oh wow, fantastic paint on this guy, he looks ready for his close up!!
  4. Small update! I got started on the last bit of sculpting; the large open flower that will be under him. I rolled out some sculpey and wrapped the armature, started with a thin layer that I could really press in to the wire to ensure good contact and a solid base to work on. 20180413_131253 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I added another layer on top that I could smooth over 20180413_132925 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180413_134412 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180413_134607 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180420_133942 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And I poked a hole in it, this one is going to have its small inner mouth open with some smaller tentacles coming out 20180420_134340 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And I made a start on the inner ridges. 20180420_134802 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Next up I'll add the lip to the edge with more sculpey and neaten up the ridges. Thanks for looking, more soon
  5. Heidi's Ride

    Cool build! And great paint
  6. That is a magnificent beast! Great bit of work John, its superb and looks stunning
  7. 1/20 scale YT figure from Snow Crash.

    Looking good, the blue and orange is really great and i like the pink hair way better than the brown
  8. Oh man it was crazy scary, he was wobbling and vibrating all over the show! Was so happy when i tried turning it again and like a miracle was really loose and just unscrewed!
  9. Yeah both the Keaton batman movies had pretty cool soundtracks
  10. Best Jack Nicholson quote ever!! Nice one i look forward to seeing them come together mate
  11. Chees Andy! Yeah im really looking forward to seeing him with colour, been staring at the gray too long!!
  12. Yeah I'll have to hurry and sort his gun to give him a chance!
  13. Some really nice scrathin', Im enjoying seeing this come together!
  14. Time for a quick update, decided its time for this guy to boldy go into the oven once again. But first I wanted to fill some of the big cracks which is easier to do with sculpey before baking than mucking about after. So I rolled some clay into thin bits and pushed it into the crack and smoothed over as best I could to fill and hide them. 20180410_131426 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180410_131613 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180410_131801 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180410_131859 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180410_132117 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180410_132126 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180410_132414 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180410_132614 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180410_132810 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then after wrapping his head and upper body in foil (not taking any chances with burning or more cracking!) I whacked him in the oven for half an hour at 130c. 20180411_131929 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And after he cam out I'm pleased to say there are no cracks! I think thats mainly down to the detail on the base is all much thinner layers than the body, they do recommend on the pack not to go thicker than 1/4 of an inch as it increases risks of cracking. 20180412_132127 by Nick Frost, on Flickr So now for the dramatic bit, I started to cut away the rod in his back, and helpfully after some panic and stressful wobbling caused by the cutting, the vibration freed the rod from the inner nut and surrounding clay so I could just unscrew it. 20180412_133240 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180412_133917 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180412_133927 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And he's way more solidly posed than I thought he would be, there practically no wobble to him at all, so pleased to be at the stage where the armature can come away! Its not the end of the sculpting though i have to sculpt the last open flower thats going under him, which will be baked and painted separately then glued into place. So thats what I'll do next, get going on the flower and then all sculpting is done and dusted. Thanks for looking more soon
  15. Okay update time! I got the support tentacle sorted, I made a sturdy armature for it with thick wire and brass tube for strength 20180403_132331 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I pushed it into where I wanted it to go to make sure it would be on a firm standing 20180403_133752 by Nick Frost, on Flickr and then drilled a hole to attach it to the guy 20180403_134123 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then just before I got it into position I rolled some more sculpey which I got really warm and soft in my hands so when I press it in it will conform to the support bits really well with no gap 20180403_134848 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180403_134944 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then it was just a matter of getting on the clay and smoothing together with my tools, and I added more vines and details to the base to disguise where I've smoothed it onto the base and also to give more support to its base. 20180404_133546 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180404_134601 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180404_135031 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180405_131915 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180405_133008 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180405_134040 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180405_134059 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I want it to look like its shooting out of the tangle of tentacles to grab you unawares! But it did look a bit weird on its own, so just to help I added a couple more tentacles as if the whole mess of vines is trying to get him 20180406_131435 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180406_132737 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180406_133226 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180406_134223 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180406_134236 by Nick Frost, on Flickr 20180406_134250 by Nick Frost, on Flickr So I'm pretty happy with that, I feel like I've built up a good layer of tentacle vines which I'm looking forward to painting, so I'll add a few little details and texture bits here and there and then its time to bake (dont panic!!) Thanks for looking, more soon
