I really Thank you very much George you have been a faithful follower and I am glad for just that even being able to touch ones creative imagination makes me very happy even if its just one. and George check out my other build threads the 1960's tv Batmobile 1/6th scale man this was one crazy build had a bunch of love on that build some times it could be the topic but check them out you will like the art Thank you
Well okay, been a busy day arm on arm off arm on arm off , but finely got her arms on and also did some paint test, I like the dark color is a gun metal and the other part is painted silver. I have lots of painting to do, as well as a ton of detail but not to much. I can already see a bunch of stuff I am going to change on Chloe, or to say Chloe will be a totally diff. robot. Thanks for all the likes and having a peek, Amie is close I can see her! Thanks and Enjoy.
Well back at again in the morning, Amie is close....Thanks
This is so incredibly cool.Thanks for sharing your project and progress, Kermet.
Yes, I remember the Batman live action series from the '60s.My brother and I would watch it all on Saturday morning and it would never get old.I'll check out your other projects as well
Thanks for the likes George, Yep I've been around here for a while doing this and that, Yes I sold that Batmobile wish now that I hadn't but been looking for that same car for a bit now, may happen some day. I guess I had about almost a year in that build. This robot build has happened kind a quick. Speaking of I have been doing some painting today I do like the gun metal against the silver looks cool. Okay in one of the pics there I put a piece of tape this is what should I do Time? In this spot I'm thinking of a blast hit not to much but just enough should I or not? just let me know how you think a blast hit in this spot. Okay I have discovered Amie is like balancing blocks or playing Jenga, I like her hip pistons to be loose when her pistons are loose and her pelvic forward she is balanced but you can knock over blocks, she tends to be a bit tippy but find that balance spot and she will just chill in her pose. So here you go Amie is close so close! Thanks to all for the likes and George today sitting there looking at her, I thought Alita Battle Angel. Amie is coming close! Thanks and Enjoy
Okay guys this last pic has the tape spot, should I do a blast spot here yes or no? How do you think this would look George? Got some sanding to do on her torso then I will spray it after that if I do a blast mark there will be no turning back because I will have to detail cut in the mark then airbrush in the blast. Back to the shop in the morning still a bunch of painting, yep I scraped off the dark gray on her legs this will go the gun metal color Amie is close! Thanks
Well Okay, I put a full day in today doing a bunch of painting, and some detail painting on her hands. I caught my self talking to her today, cool if she would answer. so here you go, Amie is very close now! Thanks and Enjoy
Well as you can see a bunch of painting, several coats. I kind a pushed it today eyes started to blur a lot so I would take a break then back at it, can't help it so addicting. Back to the shop in the morning Amie is chilling. Thanks
Hi Kermet, sorry for the delay; I had connection issues yesterday.
Personally I would leave her as she is, unless you think it adds something vital to the concept.
Oh, and perhaps consider talking to the wife instead or it might feel weird to her
Yep George had those issues as well, and the wife is mostly at work she never comes to the shop, she calls it her jail for me. I even talk to my self So on her hand I cut these parts from a flat plastic for some nail detail and took them off, you can see these in the last post. I then painted the detail and it looks better. So as painting her finger nails, I noticed I put her middle finger on her left hand on backward so I fixed this. Man she is like stacking blocks but more control, its all about balancing her on her ball socket and yep they are tight and hold her well Amie is here close! Thanks and Enjoy
Well okay, and George your rite about the blast mark, your eyes are already busy looking her over that a blast mark might take away from what is already there. I think she looks cool clean ,Back to the shop in the morning, well I will be going a bit slower here the next 2 days got prep to drink for a crazy test then the test, but you can't keep me from the shop, as long as I can get to the Johnny quick. Amie is close here! Thanks
What a day, the shop turned out to be about 4 steps to far but I made it. Yes George I love those old Batman tv shows they was cool in the day, also a old Saturday morning show called Lance Link secret chimp, The show was all chimp actors. Well still got a bunch of painting do finish up, as well as her battery compartment, and a bunch of detail work. No to the blast mark. Thanks for the likes and comments Amie is close Here! Thanks
Well test went okay, I went out to the shop and looked over where Amie is and couldn't see her till I got lights on, and there she was all the way leaned completely forward, yep a small amount of repairs was needed, but as I was getting her back in the chair right I just noticed how much of a fight it is to get her in balance. So as repair was done I fixed the balance problem, and some times things happen to show a better way. Now her spine pelvic ball is now locked. and she still a bit of a game but so much better and this will solve the problem of finding her laying in the floor. She is now very balanced, very happy with the out come. I guess how I had her leg propped up on the paint can put her out of balance, or she just got up to stand up on her own. spooky. Okay, not much done other than the repair which I got lucky, could have had a mess. Back to the shop in the morning with some coffee which I missed this morning, Amie is so close Here! Thanks
Okay here we go again, I was putting Amie's head back on and Oh me in the fall when her head hit the floor it gave her some pretty bad brain damage, inside damage, so this took a bit and some heavy eye strain well all repair made so here is some pics of all this happening and other pics of the other repairs. Amie needs to behave she is close here! Thanks and Enjoy
Well okay, I still got some painting to do, as well some detail, and her mini gun. just about there, Amie is chilling close here....Thanks
Okay, sorry I put my eyes to their limits today, brain surgery isn't easy Oh me eye surgery is not as well and hate to say November gets close and eye appointment this month, all other test are over Thank God. I am hoping that this stops all the drops. Just to know did all this this morning, I took the rest of the day off and score me a vintage collection Has Lab Razor Crest Yep been waiting for this and happy to get it well its paid for anyways Thanks To my Super Wifey Amie is near close. Thanks
Yep I agree, I have a Kick dummy that has scared me like that. So I was in the shop today and that happened I was deep in thought and caught Amie out of the corner of my eye and kind a got me. and I wasn't supposed to be out there, I promised my Wife I would take a day off becaues she let me get the Razor Crest from Has Lab I didn't work was just out there thinking, I have so many builds to do. To name Imperial Probe droid 1/2 size, my friend's walker project, Well I think I was Bribed but it was a good one. so my eyes had a good break today, but back to the shop in the morning. Amie is close here! Amie is Chilling. Thanks
Well Okay Guys, what a day complete in the shop, I did a couple what I call tid bits, I will share this and its off topic but, I think you guys will like. Also started cutting parts for Amie's mini gun arm attachment. Well I will have to press these parts as I drill them but I will share the attempt. Or I can try another route. I think the tid bit I am going to share is something I might cast up.............Guess What, AMIE IS HERE!!!!!! still got her mini gun but this process will be shown as well.. Thanks and Enjoy
Well there you go guys Amie is Here! well I still have to make her switches and battery holder, and will have to match both sides so it will look right. I will share the process of all these other things that will make Amie whole. Back to the shop in the morning see what else I can tare up. Thanks
I sure will George, Yep on the tid bit hydro my Wife said I spelled Budweiser wrong. So I fixed that because it was and I painted it cleaner. I am doing a series of these hydro's this one is one of the open cockpit one's I am going to do up a shovel nose one with the engine in front. Oh well, so got kind a busy today, and thought mini guns in a future world wouldn't be around so I scraped that concept and went with a plasma gun with rockets. All this is coming along quick I need to slow down, but man I do get busy so here is some process of this sill got a bit more on this but its looking cool. Amie is here Chilling. Thanks and Enjoy
Well okay, I still have about 4 inches on the back I have to think up, but a plasma gun is happening with rockets. This should attach well with these super magnets, and the gun is very light 4 or 5 inches of concepting then making it happen me the 3d printer. Back to the shop in the morning see what I can concept. Amie is Here! Thanks
