A 3mm hole to take the bolt, I'm hoping this bolt will help me hold the arm whilst painting also should be a bit adjustable.





A nylon domed nut and washer should do the trick

Just amazing stuff Jas !

The arms and hands look awesome and the pipe work is really fine ( what did you use for those pipes and how did you bend it ? )

Again stunning work on the custom circuit board too, there is really no end to your skill mate..

I'm guessing that the top will be removable to give access to the switch, if so you will probably find it a lot easier to paint the main body and arms separately and attach them at the end. That way you won't have any problems getting to the backs of them up near the shoulder ( just remeber to mask the holes from the inside if the circuit board is fixed in there.

Truly inspiring scratchbuilding mate

Cool stuff, I like working features on a model [smile]

Did you use styrene for the cabling on the arms ?
must be a very flexible type if you did
anyhow shaping up great [smile]

Also made a start on the axle/suspension chaps, been busy today



Even decided to make my own Styrene springs

Wrapped thin Styrene rod around the shock cylinder and applied heat very carefully with my heat gun...then let to cool

@ Pete & Paul:
It's sort of Styrene, I think it's the cheaper alternative and is slightly harder than standard but I prefer it....& my wallet does!
Simply bend it with my fingers past the desired shape point as it springs back slightly

Cheers for tip Pete, I'm having to rethink some of my usual building methods to take into account the painting.

Think these are some sort of arm flap [biggrin]


Remind me never to do a bloody louvre vent again....aaaahhhhhhh

Last but not least the wheel.
Had loads of trouble getting the right look this must be the forth one I've carved.
I planned on doing the half and casting to get a pair...however, prepped to mix the last bit of RTV silicone I had left and it's gone cacky!

So I'll have to make the other half by hand or buy some more rubber......


@Pete notice anything in the mould that's yours mate?

Links please to where you buy it [smile]

Cheap resources is what I want too as I could do with stocking up on some styrene supplies [biggrin]

Looks amazing. Though I'm kinda torn because of the subject...... Stupid annoying claptrap. lol. Though as long as you don't put a speaker and have it speak some of his lines from the games he should be the best version of claptrap... a quiet one. Keep up the great work.

Hehehe, that's one of my waist gunners boots !

A quick question mate, is the wheel raised up from the bottom of the mould so that the silicone can get under it ?

And after its cured do you split the mould in half ? I'm really trying to get my head around how it works
