- so im a huge "red planet" fan and after watching the movie a billion times I wanted to make the "belt tool/pick axe" used by val kilmer and carrie moss. board member RAVEN sent me a couple pictures and I took some screen grabs and im on my way!! this will be a "hybrid" as ive noticed in my research there were 2-3 different ones. a "solid" non-moving version, an extendable/opening version and a "special fx" version used at the end of the film, used for cutting and sparks etc. I started with poster board and cut patterns for a mold. then filled them with bondo to make "wafers" that could be built up to various thicknesses drilled holes for alignment pins and a trench for the shaft. basis shape for handle done and shaft primered to better see pits and holes to be filled. test fitting. more to come later!!
