Hello folks! saw this on FuseNova's Thread & i was inspired.

FuseNova provided very nice pictures detailing the measurements hence making the whole build easier! Measuring and getting the shape is the hardest part which was simplified by the pictures and measurements provided by FuseNova (Thnx mate!). But what i did do is made my version of the chevron slightly bigger.

so - Jaffa' Kreeeee

Here we go ...


1.Ruff Draft

2. Drawing the Chevron on Plywood.
This is the most important part, as if this is done wrong here the end result will not be so good!
(so i took time grabbed a beer and drew the chevron very patiently)

Cut the shape out.

When you look at a chevron - the one thing that threw a scare at me was the cuts. If you do not have the right tools achieving nice clean inside cuts is near impossible. so i decided not to go for inside cuts i went all the way from the edge.

Added the Edge hence cheating my way to an inside cut ;)

Well when you are done with those Build 8 more of those and build a ring that is say 10 feet in diameter. With 39 glyphs in it.

Glyph reference down below.

Get it motorized and *DING* you are done with the general construction of it. Be sure to paint and light the thing too.

And of course you are going to need your self one of these.

But other than the suggestions. I do have to say that this is an excellent start.

Glued Everything up ! Since the construction has lot of gaps and is held together very softly - i Decided to use the Gorilla Glue That Expands. It acts like foam expands to fill the gaps.

Dry Time 4 hrs or so ..

More sanding needs to be done to get the price ready for paint prep..

Built the inside this was not correct when I first built it with wood, so I used some filler to build up a ruff shape. Will cut it, sand it and bondo it later.

2 hrs into it, I cut the shape and slowly sanded until I was happy.
Sanded a little bit, and used some bondo.
More sanding to follow once it all drys out.
