Hunter Rose

1/6 Spacebase 2000 Inspired Astronaut Sculpt

Recommended Posts

Okay so got a chance to work more on the gun

 

Got the green sprayed on the gun, whipped off the masking and thought it looked a little plain so I brushed on another shade of green and was much happier!

Then I went ahead and used some greenstuff to make the handle, which I sculpted directly into his hand

Once it dried I gave it a coat of the same enamel green I brushed on the rest of the gun.

I also made a start on a test for the laser beam, I've got two so I have a back up if it goes wrong!

 

I used my rotary tool to grind out a recess for my led, it melted a little hole in the side but I think the gloss gel I'm using will cover that up

So yeah blobbed a load of gloss medium in there and shoved the led in and then used a bit of wire to give it a bit of a laser flare effect

Only other thing I got a chance to do was to try in place when that had dried clear just to get a sense of how easy it will be to line it all up and I'm super happy with how it looks

Next I'll have to thread wires through the gun and get the soldering iron out.

 

Thanks for looking more soon :)

Thanks! Its really nice to know the project hasn't been forgotten!

 

I've taken a break for the last few months, I've had a lot going on, but I'm wanting to get this finished soon, so there will be updates incoming shortly.

 

One of the main things I've been stressing about (a lot!) is the lights and electrics and I'm afraid to say this wont be lighted now after all. For my own sanity and wanting to see this finished I'd rather drop the electrics and ensure it gets done rather than be over ambitious and leave it on the shelf of doom while I stress about it!

 

I want to get it done quick as I've got another sci fi sculpting project I want to start, so there will be a lot more sculpting action to see after as well :)

My god, its an update!!

 

Time to blow the dust off and get back on it, started by just adding a bit of shading to the gun and painting a few little details (just some metallic grey bits and a bit of black on the barrel holes)

And I have painted a bit of the clear gloss gel onto the laser beam just to make it a bit more of a ‘rough plasma’ look (if thats a thing! :lol: )

Then I got it glued into the gun using more of the gel medium, and once it was dry I pressed s blob of green stuff into the recess of his hand and poked it over the protruding wire from his wrist to hold it all in position.

So next up going to add more greenstuff to the wrist which will be painted black to match the joint cover of the other wrist. I'll also get make a start getting the clear dome cut and in place.

 

So glad to be back on this, really want to push and get this done ASAP.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

It still looks great to me. The latest details just add to that.

Very nice, seeing him again is great also looking farward to seeing it finished and what you have up your sleeve next. 

Cheers Brian! Yeah I cant wait to get cracking on the new sculpt which is a great motivator for this one!!

 

Just a small update today, I've sculpted and painted the wrist joint cover

And I've cut a new dome from one of the MANY eggs I acquired at the start of this, as the test one was very scratched and dinged

And thats just been taped together while the white glue I've used to hold it together dries

Next up I'll sort out the greenstuff padding that will act as its attach point and also give it a similar look to the other joint covers.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

Any chance of a hint as to what the next subject will be ? 
 

Dennis

 

Don't want to give too much away, but I'll be doing another 1/6 scale full figure of a subject usually only available in miniature, and that's all I'm saying :lipssealed:

 

Cheers for the interest Dennis :)
