Here is a slight update on the 2up SteamPunk Iron man I am doing. He is coming along great, slower than expected, but still I am very pleased with this guy so far!
One part of this project that has taken more time than expected is adding texture to the styrene I am using to build the arms, hands and legs. Instead of having a nice flat surface, I am giving the plastic a texture that will resemble hammered steel and hammered copper. It looks real cool, and I will be taking some in process pics of that and some better close up pics of the texture as well. I got him som shoulder pads as well.
Here he is holding a ruler...right now, without his head and without his smoke stacks he stands at 20 inches tall, in the end, he will be about 22-24 inches tall.
Another setback, the other night I was working with my glue gun, that as of late, has been leaking molten glue out the trigger...I payed it no attention because it didnt effect its function. The other night I blew a fuse in the shop and smelled something burning. Found out, through smell it was my glue gun! it was sooo blackedned on the inside and on the outside:
