well so far so good. felling good thanks for the support.. I have been doing as much as I can on my own here is what i have done so far with the blue prints I will be adding the sizes when it's all said and done. I wish I had some help with the tracing aspect in illustrator. it's taking me a long time with my health and trying to spend time with the family. I have all the pictures of all the parts they just need to be traced.. I started to cut some pieces out of foam to start making a resin kit. bouncing around is taking a longer time. I can if i had the help i can scale each part up to scale and make cutting templates in a eps formate so a person can go to a print shop or staples and print each part to scale. so here is the prints so far. sorry about it taking longer then expected.
Send me a Pm if you think you would like to help out.
Looking good Kustom! Sorry dude I don't know anything about those sorts of things! But hang in there its great to see you making progress
Thanks I'm trying. I talked with another guy from the forum that told me about another program I might try out to see if it's faster.
OK I need to know if people will understand this style of blue prints I will be adding a key for the use of some colors? Or am i wasting my time http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s...ABCproject.jpg

It looks ok to me. Would make it easy to print and cut out to make a template
Here is a update of what I have gotten around to doing so far. I have alot of time in the head and the jaw just to get it where it is as of now. I could be just going over board with this but it matter to me that it's perfect. so here some head shots. and of the side plates before. I said on the other thread i was going to mold and cast these in a plaster to i can grind down the wrong stuff and build up from there. plus I have a photo of the 2 egg shape things.. if you look at them neither of them match each other. if you own this kit look for the best one the smaller one of the two make copy of it for the other side. I got it where one fits both sides the other went in the trash.. once I am happy with the head and jaw i will make new pistons as the ones in the kit don't match. if you look at the other thread it looks like lil gas shocks by the mounting backets not a bunk of holes drilled into the head ...OBW non of the so called pistons fit in any holes .. I wish I had more to report on this my health is not up to par but I would like to see this finished so I can move on to the rest of the body...
weird I posted a reply but it never went up. It looks great Ei, wow that's a lot of tidying up to do. Even from the pics you can see that's there alot of faring and leveling to do!
What ear piece are going use for a pattern?
Hey also dude any chance you could do a quick measure of some of the main dimensions of the head? Zorg and Sir Round gave us some great dimensions but I would still like a measurement along the jaw and the overall length of the head would be helpful too!
Thanks for the updated pics. I hadn't realised how long the 'lump' behind his top jaw was.
As far as the what ear piece to use I would go with a smaller one. I will post the plaster casting I made of it. I also figured out I wanted to shape the head to fit the Ear piece instead of working the little part. Granted I want to carve some more details and depth I messed up one of my molds for the sideplate.. so I will remake a new one this weekend. I did not make it deep enough so when i poured in the plaster I nailed the counter instead. Other than that I fell since I picked this thing back up I getting it done. I think i will make a mold of the tank kit i bought just to work on this. I cant see trying to mold the little parts instead of the whole kit. the molds are Rubber so they will last..
an accurate set of temple plates would be a really good one to junkyard. I'm sure there's a few people with this head with the original and less accurate temple plates.
casting up the individual components and then building the plates is a good idea. I would happily help out with the fabrication and molding of this part of the project as thanks to Art we have some AWESOME reference pics to work from.
Do you have the complete set of components?
Yep I bought the whole tank kit once Art said where the parts came from.. I have one sideplate done I will need to remake the another one I also have casted one of the ear parts came out nice. Let me know how you want to help I have all the stuff. I need to order some more molding material for the head I was using rebound 40 from another project but I think moldstar 15 would be the best bet on this looking into building or making a rotocasting machine. my funds for this are running short since I have to cover my own healthcare. Hey I'm up doing research on the gimbal setup for under the neck the main wishbone area. IT looks hardcore in the movie but it could be as a caster on a swivel. If you want hop in the Chat on here if you want to BS for a bit I'm tryign to snag some screen shoots of various videos i have found on it.. I don't care how long it takes to make this correct but i will do it.. I notice the people who made this kit made a assembly video of the kit I watched it first thing i noticed is the head he used in the video has some fixing done to it cause it is no way in the shape that this one is plus if you notice it's super shinny like fresh primer.....hmmmmm.. O ps the pistons are also wrong in the kit I have a list going here from just watching the movie over and over..
Let me know G.
Hey man well yeah I'd be happy to make the other temple plate including molds; it's a nice small build I can do over my lunch times. I could make a couple of molds and post one to you and keep the other. I'm happy to pay for shipping/ kit parts to get over here, let me know what works for you dude
not a problem Like i said I bought the whole tank kit for people wanting to build their own templates we can cast the whole tank kit. Or just make the side plates in total. Would you want to hold on to the molds from this?
Just let me know if you want to talk more about this in detail just inbox me
