So a minor update I finished the top pieces of the shoulder bells. I added a couple of views so you could see it up close and from above. I also made some progress on the cannon but don’t have any good pictures worth posting. Hopefully tonight I will be able to create the left arm and have some pictures for that.

So the Motto from this weekend is... when life gives you lemons get... some Bondo and fix that *****.

I was using the 65D this weekend to coat the shoulder bells however for some reason it did not cure properly. Instead of becoming hard plastic it was this sticky gooey stuff. However I wasn't defeated. I just slapped a coat of Bondo on top of the 65D. It seems to have fixed the problem but it has added another step in the process. :facepalm

I called the Smooth-On technical support like and they hopefully gave me some tips on how to prevent it from occurring in the future.

However I did get one shoulder bell fully coated and painted. I used some chrome spray paint which really helped give it that metal shine rather than grey paint. Once I get more pieces done I'll break out the DSLR camera and take some decent pictures. Until then enjoy the progress pics from this weekend.

Looking good thus far! The new, larger shoulder bells are looking great.

When Smoothcast 300 has become sticky (improper cure) for me in the past, it was mostly due to not stirring as much as I should have. Sometimes it takes a lot more stirring than you expect.

Yeah that's what I learned today when I called. Apparently it needs be stirred a lot! It would be helpful if they stressed it more vigorously.
