    Solo: A Star Wars Story - Mud Trooper Discussion

    I'm 100% in on this. I love it, it's like the kind of troopers I would design for myself back in the day. Really makes me think that the planet these guys are on might not have been a terribly well-kept Imperial stronghold and didn't get a lot of good equipment, or otherwise knew that regular...

    Re: Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: Here are the finished photos! I went with the ROTJ scheme as I like the more weathered look. However, the weathering is pretty exaggerated here and I think it's partly due to the scaling. On the Han block's larger form factor, this same exact weathering...

    Re: Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: I'm going to go ahead and post this to wrap up the WIP photos, but I've finished the full build. I'll post another reply with the finished photos. The electronics kit that Chuck Westfield and Randy Neubert put together for my Groot kit was a breeze to...

    Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: >>FINISHED<<

    Re: Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: Not yet. I always finish one before opening up sales. That way people see what the kit can be built into. (And so no one beats me to my own punch. :P)

    Re: Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: Casting progress! The outer case is cast in polyester resin backed with some Free Form Air and a few layers of fiberglass cloth. It works well enough, but I need to rethink my materials options. The fiberglass part is fine, it's the Free Form Air that...

    Re: Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: Back in the saddle, I finished up all the mold work earlier this week. And last night I began casting the control panels. Because they are so small relative to the Han panels, I didn't have the luxury of being able to slush cast these effectively, so...

    Re: Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: Got to do a teensy bit of work on it this afternoon before I had to stop and pack for my trip this weekend. Last night I worked on the rubber mold for the control panel, and this afternoon I built the box to hold the mold in orientation. So all that's left...

    Re: Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: This weekend I finished up the remaining fabrication work on the case and even made the control panel master. I hope to be able to mold the control panel tonight, but I probably won't be able to mold the outer casing until next week because I have other...

    Re: Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: A run is most definitely coming, I just don't want to announce anything until I am a lot further along. But I intend to have this ready for purchase by the time people are doing their holiday shopping, if not a little sooner. :) I had some PTO to burn...

    Custom Skull Mask

    Thanks everyone! Yep, urethane resin. As someone who basically molds everything, it wasn't terribly nerve wracking to me. Though, the unfortunate side effect to molding it is that the clay master was necessarily damaged during the demolding process. But that had to happen anyways as that clay...

    Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: >>FINISHED<<

    Re: Baby Groot FROZEN IN CARBONITE D: Lol! Yeah I'm already getting a fair amount of that. XD There will definitely be a run. I'll have an interest list up sometime closer to the finish. Until then, I recently put a coat of primer on the Groot plate in preparation for molding, and it should...
