So, I got a micronauts glider pack. Took picks, use the height of the micronaut vs the size of the pack to figure out correct proportion for avg person.

Then put it on a tv, made it correct size and drew the outline and some details. The bottom of the pack just mirror image and overlap to line up.

Anyone want to clean this up?

First I see a M.A.S.K. thread and now this? I'm in late 70's early 80's heaven. Looks great so far, can't wait to see how it turns out.

OH WOW! That brings back SO MANY memories!!! I played with my Micronauts and Biotron until they fell apart!

Looking forward to seeing this finished!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane! :)

So, any good advice on sculpting sculpey helmets? I started with aluminum, resined it, and now making outet layer outa sculpey. How do you get a smooth, round look?
Do I need to spray mold release? 20180504_210933.jpg 20180504_123622.jpg
Should I shout these questions to sound more like Robin Leech?
I will be using paint on mold stuff, for the helmet.

Using Smooth-on rebound 25. Does Sculpey need to be sprayed with release agent? Will release agent mess up the sculpey? What is the speed of an unlaiden swallow?

If you look close up on space glider helmets there are some designs. So, I guestimated them out of 1/8 inch foam. Since I have to make them 3D, I will add MORE FreeForm Air and then sand flat and coat with XTC.

I guess I could have stopped at the mohawk piece, but after taking some macro pics of the helmet, I went for it.

NOTE: the micronaut's head has a thick, hard layer of wavy hair, so going from toy dimensions to human head calls for some inaccuracies.

3D printers are fun.

Take wing details, make them black and white. Turn into a 3D file, where black is higher.

Viola!

Wing details can now be printed and used to make molds, or even applied directly.

Oh! I feel resourceful and lazy at the same time
