    Optimus Prime Pen on the moon base + lights & sounds Part 1, part 2

    [​IMG]

    CONCEPT: to make the attractive pen with pen stand plus lights and sounds.
    1. Disassemble metal pen, modify circuit of light & laser pointer.
    2. Clone Optimus prime head, modify ribs inside head.
    3. Clone Space man, add dowel to lock into the moon base.
    4. Make the moon base model include the correct hole to insert pen.
    5. Make the mold of moon base
    6. Make plastic resin of the moon base
    7. Remake laser & LED light module to optimum length, add SMD LED light module for satellite receiver.
    8. Set switches position for space man and the Pen to activate sounds.
    9. Decorate satellite receiver and set-up LED light onto it.
    10.Set switch function to activate LED light (attach to satellite receiver)
    11. Clone satellite receiver & button switch
    12. Assemble sound modules, battery socket.
    13. Make the bottom cover.
    14. Make model of the Optimus Prime's chin.
    15. Clone the Optimus Prime's chin & the cover of the moon.
    16. Assemble Optimus Prime's head, light module to the Pen.
    17. Paint the Pen
    18. Make the USA.flag and paint the moon.
    ________________________________________________________________

    1. Disassemble metal pen, modify circuit of light & laser pointer.

    [​IMG]
    Metal pen that contains 3 button batteries, 2 button switches
    (white torch / red laser pointer)

    [​IMG]
    with super bright LED white light

    [​IMG]
    super bright laser pointer

    [​IMG]
    disassemble pen to work on light & laser module.
    This step must do it carefully due to module will be stuck
    with switch buttons and easily damage botton swtich.

    [​IMG]
    cut PCB to separate it to 2 modules (one will be fixed with pen body,
    another one will be fixed with Optimus head)
    After cut it, you need to replace wire to complete circuit.

    [​IMG]
    strip wire as a short to protect short circuit.

    [​IMG]
    test function of light and laser again.

    [​IMG]
    Add 1 more LED light (spec must be the same)
    this is for 2 eyes of Optimus prime. Finally you know roughly on
    how to modify the circuit when it needs change position.​
    ________________________________________________________________

    2. Clone Optimus prime head, modify ribs inside head.

    [​IMG]
    prepare master Optimus Prime head (Leader class),
    remove screw, then we will have 3 parts in all.

    [​IMG]
    plug plasticine into back side of eyes to protect silicone
    flow in from eye holes.

    [​IMG]
    check if pasticine come out full eye holes. If not, place it back.

    [​IMG]
    this hole we will not use it,
    then we should plug it for good appearance.

    [​IMG]
    now we are readly to make silicone mold of this side head.
    just lay plasticine onto parting line (ensure there is no unercuting)

    [​IMG]
    now get ready for silicone poring.

    [​IMG]
    cut plasticine offseting work piece around 7-8 mm.

    [​IMG]
    make sure during cut, it's not move even only little.
    otherwise the mold will has error on dimension.

    [​IMG]
    use silicone type high flow (from Germany is recommended)
    due to we need whole details of model surface.

    [​IMG]
    pore silicon 1 by 1 layer wait each layer completely dry
    before poring next layer.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    finished 1 side.

    [​IMG]
    This is eyes part ( maybe not use this part, but just make it first)

    [​IMG]
    follow the same steps.

    [​IMG]
    Finally we are now having all 3 sets of silicone mold
    ready to clone Optimus head.

    [​IMG]
    Pore plastic resin (that mix color already)

    [​IMG]
    now we've got the complete part of the Clone.
    check every detail if it's complete.
    if not check whether it's from resin process or mold process.
    if mold process... I'll cry ToT

    [​IMG]
    Then tentative paint just roughly... I guess it looks not so bad.

    [​IMG]
    on the head got hole, i drilled for laser pointer shoot out.

    [​IMG]
    Ok now to compare what we have now.

    [​IMG]
    torch function will be like this.


    I guess you will enjoy this part more or less.
    thanks for watching.

    bye for now. ^^​
