Holy cow... One of the best Things i SAw on this Forum
i was 7 when t-2 came out, i remember my pops owning the vhs and when the terminator came on the screen adn crushed the skull i freaked out. this build brought back those memories. awesome build and i bet the skull was a pain in the butt to do.
keep it up man, looks awesome.... and creepy.
Okay so I test fitted the teeth today, took a picture and couldn't help myself but to photoshop some eyes in there!
Yes, those are the temp jaw pistons made from straws. :P
Wow! very nice work.
OMG, if you ever offer castings of those skulls, PLEASE put me on the list. I'd buy one today if I could!!
Awesome work! It needs some work yes, but it's coming along great. Wish all the talents at rpf worked at the known companies.
First post for me, but had to comment. I love that you used cardboard for the main endo... I'm big on using whatever I can (because I'm cheap and can't afford much else) and we have a garage full of cardboard from our house moves (about 3 in 4 years)... now I know what to do with it all rather than recycling.
I've also recently bought myself a whole bunch of plasticine (it was cheap and I figured a good starting point to play with modelling)... seeing your work with the skull is very inspiring!!!
Extremely impressed and waiting with baited breathe to see the painted end product (and loving the progress shots as it goes )
Thanks for the support guys!
I've started at a new job so I've had some downtime with this project, but I ordered material to mold and cast the skull, so hopefully I will start molding it this weekend! I've never done any molding or casting before so any helpful tips are more than welcome!
This is Awsome, keep it up!!!
Cardboard, wood, papier maché... bondo! It's amazing what a person can do with easily accessible supplies! Amazing work chanfan!
Looking forward to updates!
Okay so here's a small update. I fittet the acrylic teeth with milliput today! And I have also removed the ridge inside the nose to make room for the details in there.
Those are some nice chompers!
you have a real talent man ! that is superb !
Some more sanding and a new coat of filler primer.
Very nice piece of work! .)
Thank you very much, TMG!
That's frickin' cool!!!!
Wow, I am very impressed with the work you have put into this, it's truly awesome I am looking forward to updates on this project, you attention to the small details is impressive and awe inspiring, excellent work.
Resin goes farther than you would expect and you don't have to do it all at once. If you don't fill up your mold with resin you can make more anytime. It will cure to the already poured resin like it was one so don't make too much and waste resin.
Once the mold is done you can figure out how much resin you need using water. Won't hurt your mold and you won't waste resin. Nothing worse than having extra resin and nothing to poor it in. Take a measuring cup and figure out how much liquid the mold takes.
For the love of God and all that is good and holy, do not get so excited that you put your piece in your mold box, poor the silicone/rubber and then after realize you forgot to put the anti stick coating on the object thus making it impossible to peal your piece out of the mold cleanly. Your item will be fine but you will have wasted lots of rubber.
The mold will pick up every detail so the cleaner the master the less clean up work. Having said that don't drive yourself crazy trying to perfect the master. There will always be clean up.
Your item will "float" in the mold box once the silicone is poured so consider doing it in two parts, bracing it, hot glue an edge to the bottom of the box if that will work for the part, etc.
To get a feel do a small mold and resin cast of something tiny just to get a feel for the material.
This is based on limited experience as I have only been molding/casting a short time myself so if anyone has more or better ideas or thinks I am wrong about anything feel free.
