Zaku head, foliage, moss, rust.....

Tell me when to stop, won't you...?

That would look so cool!

Or....For some reason this one came to me as I did the washing up!

 

A training head. Think three axis flight simulator.

Platform on hydraulics, ladders, screen, etc etc?

As far as I know this one hasn't been done before,

whereas the rusty robot thing has, but still appeals.

Now i would like to see that.

 

And as i was in a very long and dull meeting at work i sketched out what i might add to the dio and nothing says heavy like a bit of H beam and add this running around in my head. H beam either side on a floor mounted runner and rod going through the existing brace at the back on the the beam.

 

What you all think? 

 

And not to my very bad art.......

Plus various sized boxes on the walls

with cables etc down into the floor or

across to your structure.

Just have a look at Thunderbird 2's Hangar

and what goes on in the background.

Well ahead of it's time that stuff.

A doorway will also visually set the scale.

And there's more!

I get too much thinking time as we drive around delivering the booze!

 

Okay, Zaku head, up on supports of some rustic kind.

On top is an old radar/satellite dish as a rain collector.

The head is now a water tank. Underneath chains hang down to operate shower heads. 

In the background underneath are shadowy adult figures washing clothes etc (no need for detail). 

In the foreground are Japanese anime kid figures (the ones with spiky hair & too large mouths)

romping around in the water showers like kids used to around fire hydrants in the USA.

Now this one probably wouldn't work as I don't know if you could get the figures,

But I think it would make a great illustration.

 

The follow on idea to that one, similar jerry rigged mounting for the head, but there is now a bunker dug out under it.

Satellite dishes are wired into the head and computer screens etc glow in the bunker. Maybe lights in the head too?

This time the figures are rebels in bits of military kit/jeans etc using the head systems to hack into their opposition.

Pete you have definitely been thinking about this to much but have come up with some nice ideas, I like the water tank one and can see that in my head.

 

To much DIY going on at my house again to get any work done on this, but have found some decals and Im on with collecting boxs, vents pipes etc for the room. I have a quick go at scratch building the side of some steps with 1mm tube, not as easy at it looks.
