    [attachmentid=7544]Question for the pros...

    I have always wanted a life sized Gort from Day the earth stood still.
    I have a life sized rubber mask that I would think mold could be made, then modified to make the visor rise etc.

    Could this be put on a mannequin then take PVC pipe for arms and legs?

    Fashion shoes from clay or ???

    any ideas or who would like to tackle this one?

    Let me know.
    Klato barata nickto... or something.

    Tom :thumbsup

    Sure, I don't see why that wouldn't work. Gort is big. Go to the www.robothut.com The guys name is John Riggs he has a Gort that he built from scratch it's sweet.

    Best of luck and keep us posted, if you do mold a head from your mash I want a copy ...........

    A life sized Gort sounds like a fun project.

    Gort is indeed too big for a mannequin- 8ft but might be a doable PVC project or even a cardboard/paper art type- Very cool idea-

    How was the original done? That might give an idea on how to go about making one.
