OK, Few words and many deeds. lets take a look for some pics .
wow!! thats looking pretty damn awesome so far! the only complaint i might have is that the hands seem a little large, but other than that great work
can't wait to see this finished
yes, the hands seem a little large ,but when it finished , it'll be in perfect proportion .
thank you , i'll do my best.
Do I see a robotmasters star saber as a base there? It looks great!!
DUDE make me one seriously hows $200 sound
This is looking sharp! However, brevity of words doesn't serve us well. Please discuss your processes and your materials, etc!
EXACTLY! Inquiring minds want to know.......what was used, what you did, and how you did it. Awesome so far.
about what was used, what i did, and how i did it. the raw material is PVC Polyvinyl Chloride(TP) 聚氯乙烯 ，the toy is RM star saber. The simple procedure is as pics .
awesome job bro..where can get the PVC Polyvinyl Chloride(TP)?do u make the mold first and then pour the material to it?
the PVC Polyvinyl Chloride(TP) i bought it in advertising material market. all the parts i made by handwork. i stacked the PVC Polyvinyl Chloride(TP) with strong adhesives ,than polishing it by using file.
ooo..i see..all the parts u made by handwork?whoah..u r very artistic..ur refer the design to what model bro?like the hips plate seems like the gundam plate..and the hand u make ur self?awesome bro..
there are no gundam plates ,only the ball joint of wrist is from gundam. a small parts are from other toys ,but they are mainly handmade.
Whoa, very nice. Unusual to see someone make an actual transforming figure out of PVC
sorry.....i forget the thrusters on the back......its from gundamGP-02
That is hot. The articulated hands are especially impressive.
Have you used Styrene sheet as well? Just curious about a comparison between that and PVC for scratchbuilding.
To be honest.........i don't know whats the difference between Styrene sheet and PVC.........
...Wow, those leg and waist panels are SCRATCH BUILT? Holy crap. I thought they were just cut off a Gundam kit. That's really impressive.
thats f****n SICK!!!!!.....
Styrene is typically used for model kits and hobbies while PVC is your plumbing pipe and then extruded PVC is what's used in many professional signs (Sintra being a brand name example).
Many of the fan Star Wars costumes out there use Extruded PVC for the armor parts (Boba Fett, Stormtroopers, etc.). The nice thing about this substance is that you can drop a piece into boiling water, shape it/bend it, then run it under cold water and the molecules "re-freeze" in the shape you've made it.
It looks like you're using sheet styrene but I can't be sure.
