    Thanks funboy it's a rambling derailing mess of a thread and I'm looking forward to seeing where it will go next.

    To the handful of ABC devotees who follow this thread I am still chipping away at a full size build. This month I managed to make a thigh piece! That kind of breath taking speed will surely get me a finished robot in no time at all

    Ok in an attempt to repair this thread here's a couple of pics that might be useful for people attempting a head build

    Oota,
    I've been away for a couple of years. Glad to see this thread alive and well!
    It's weird yet cool that people's interest is faithful, but builds are far and few between. I bet the first person that creates a high-quality 3D model will spark a bunch of print builds...

    Hey Warpig glad to have you back on the thread! Yup its a build that will not go away but it's a complex build lots of curvature and I think that's one of the reasons why there are so few builds out there especially completed ones

    A few years ago I got as far as making a foot and a head. But I was really unhappy with the foot I have since cut the offending foot up to use as a template to vac form the various pieces. So now I'm vac forming all the armour and things are going reasonably well I am starting to actually glue things together! I'll post some pics once I've made some decent progress.

    A good 3d model would be wonderful. I wish we could track down the original/s for more photos and a scan. In the meantime the tsukuda 1/9th scale model is invaluable as well as the pics that folk have offered up here.

    Annnnd also I love coming across people's builds on-line. There's varying levels of accuracy but they are all awesome

    the only decent shot of the rear foot assembly. It just shows that the model is very close to the prop. I think the models version is too long though needs to be pulled in a bit

    A good look at the guts part

    ok that'll do for now. I can sense someone out there going ......"hmmmm maybe I should build one of these after all!"

    ha ha yeah it looked pretty easy to start the first one up why not just double down

    It'd would be cool to know why they made two. I'm guessing either one was the sit-down-stand-up robot and the other the more articulated OR one was the main shooting robot and the other a back up if it craps out

    I was able to get in touch with the artist that created it. The files were lost in a hard drive crash, so cross off one possible source of a 3D model.

    well I was going to wait until I had these bits a finished up more but what the hell here a couple of shots of my progress so far. I'm happy with how the build is going except for the speed with which it is going

    Here's a bit of progress

    A thigh piece. I've left lots of dents an imperfections in the shapes I want to use them later (much later) when painting

    Here's one of the knee's. The top curved bit isn't as accurate as I'd like but I've gone too far with it to start again. I'm surprised at the number of differences between the model and the screen used robot.

    And here's a size comparison next to the model leg. I've realised my ABC is going to be ummm another ABC not a replica of THE ABC is you get what I'm saying. My weathering/ battle damage is going to be different but I'll keep the palette similar

    I keep finding changes I want to make in the stuff I've made but for the most part I'm trying to ignore the urge to keep refining things or I'll never finish the bastard

    Everything is vac formed at this stage. I really want to get everything up to the hips made this year (ish). The robot divides nicely at the hips/ waist so they can be totally separate builds and stuck together at the end.......something like that

    After looking at dozens of photos, models, drawings, etc., I've come to the conclusion that no two are alike. The movie ABC is different than the model, and the few 3D attempts are different still. If we'd like to wrap some story context around it, we could say that our friend Hammerstein has constantly changed, with parts being added/removed as they wore out or were upgraded. Using that line of thought, it's safe to say that *all* builds are accurate, as the builder is showing Hammerstein at a particular instant of his existance.

    And the bottom line is: they're all awesome!

    yeah nice one warpig I agree I do like the variations between the builds and the model and screen used robot makes it much more interesting
