Just watched Midsomer Murders, series 20, episode 3, "Drawing Dead."

There is a full size ABC robot in the opening sequence. It has some good footage of the back side, showing the supporting frame. Looks fan made rather than the screen-used ones.

Hopefully someone can score us a few screencaps?

Managed to get a couple of shots. It's only on screen for about two seconds in total and these are as good as I could make them. The first shot is to show the overall size.
So far I haven't been able to find photos of this robot anywhere else on line.

Nice that's awesome! So that's Funky Monkey's (?) fan made prop I think. He's a member here and there's a pic somewhere of it somewhere on this thread.

Thanks, Oot. Can't find him on the member list, even with different spellings. Also, most of the links on page 1 are dead. :confused:

Hey Blax! I'm only 5 months late replying to this hahahahaha...........

I thought I had found his facebook page but can't load it. Looks like his new site is yorkshire props


Small bit of progress on my ABC. I've vac formed one shoulder pad and made the form for the other. Once that's done only the arm pieces to go and then into finishing

I've measured up the model kit for how much Aluminium I am likely to need for the armature. I am planning on a running an Ali 'spine' from the waist right up into the head for stability and then lots of dressing around it. The plan is still to have a sit down and a stand up option

will post pics sometime lol

Thanks as always funboy :) Yep I surprised myself and actually snuck in a bit of work on the shoulder pads tonight. I have built them both and the main chestplate just applying loads of bog to smooth a few things out and then I'll post pics

Finally some WIPS :) Here's the left and right shoulder pads sitting on the chest/back section. Pretty happy with how its looking. I think the head is about the right proportion to the other pieces.

My photo quality has improved somewhat as it's not me taking them :)

Comments and critique always welcome. Next steps are the arms pieces. Ali has been bought and ready for cutting and fitting woot!

Absolutely brilliant, Oot! He's going to dominate whatever space he's in!

Didn't know you had the head as well. Good score on that.

Again - brilliant work!

Thanks as always Blax. Yeah I made the head years ago after 'borrowing' the technique you used when you made your MDF one :)

It's nice to making a bit of progress with this. Definitely keen to get the armature built now and then I think it'll start to look like something

Do it funboy! :) I have tons of measurements and reference to share with you when and if you have a go

I think I got pretty close with my sculpt but there were some angles that I couldn't quite reconcile so just took the best guess I could.

My plan is to vac form this head so it's light. I'm going to cast up the eye socket area, the ear pieces and the temple inserts as separate bits then fit them into a two piece vac form of the main head. Something like that anyway
