Sweet, thanks a lot, dude! You did a truly epic job with the budget build!I used what I call "foam core" like this: Pacon Original Foam Core Graphic Art Board, 22in. x 28in., White, Carton of 5.
I picked it up at walmart in the office supply section. It was with the regular poster board.
Thanks for all of the compliments! This is the first "real" prop outside of lightsabers and blasters I've attempted a scratch build of.
I hadn't heard that, but I'd be interested in seeing the results if you try!Also, for the decals, I'd heard somewhere to use self-adhesive laminates from Staples for a gloss effect. Has anyone had any success with that route?
That was tough, and I'm not 100% happy with it, but it works. So here's how I did it:What is the angle of the kicktail? Any tricks for making it too?
Where did you get colored velcro? It's hard to find regular velcro where I live.Those are great pics!
I started putting the green and pink velcro on last night, but ran out of velcro. I'll be picking some more up later this week. Adding the fluorescent velcro really makes it "pop". Looks great. I'll post pics soon.
I don't know, where he did get it, but I bought mine here: 5 yards 1 inch Sew-On Velcro Hook & Loop Tape Color 1" Red Purple Yellow ~~~~~~~ | eBay (the pink and the light green ones).Where did you get colored velcro? It's hard to find regular velcro where I live.
