OK, here's the upper part of the right leg (the left leg looks the same but it faces the other way :lol: )

the parallel lines are cut in, to help the plastic bend without breaking.

OK back to the Hood, I have applied the Milliput, trimmed and smoothed it, the whole thing is about the size of tht last joint of your little finger the viewing window/dome is about the size of an orange pip.

The compound eye effect of the window/dome was created by pressing a small disc of semi set milliput into the weave of a piece of cloth and then wrapping it around the rounded end of a pen, then when it was set I trimmed it to fit.

It's great watching this come together. know you use models of your own design to use as reference for our paintings. Is this model bigger than your preious models?

No it's a lot smaller.

The picture below shows the difference in size, the model on the left is the old one and was too big and heavy to stand un-aided. the new one on the right is a lot smaller and lighter and should be OK. 8-[

This is an old photo :lol:

I like them both. Try to actually get a model finished. I can't wait to see how it looks like...

He just means he agrees with you.

So back to the legs I have added Milliput to both upper sections of the left and right legs. I am making all the sections of the legs separately, although in the finished model all the joints will be fixed in one position.

These parts are not finished yet.

I still have a lot of the elaborate work to do on the upper parts of the legs, but I have decided to leave that for a time and concentrate on the middle section of the side legs, I only need to make one of these as I can duplicate the second from a silicon rubber mould taken from the master.

Hey Lonesome. awesome stuff. how much would you sell a completed model for? Obviously I'm interested in buying one. :mrgreen: They obvoiusly take a lot of time and then there is the fact that it is an origional peice of art so I don't expect it to be cheap. 8-[

:-s Are you trying to get me into trouble with Jeff's lawyers again, don't you remember the bother I had with "THAT" painting (Unnamed ship being attacked by strange machines with more than two legs and less than four legs from another world [-( )
I had to rename it for legle reasons.

Anyway, here is the Mid section of the side leg. you will see it is done in two different colour plastics, there is a very good reason for this. the red end had to be 7mm wide and the white end had to be 4mm wide, so I sandwiched 4mm white plastic between two sheets of 1.5mm red plastic. also we get a lot of scrap 4mm & 1.5mm plastic at work and that just happens to be the colours they come in. :wink:
I haven't bothered posting a photo of the piston, it just a stick :D
