minifig in the making!
ha ha ha! Love it!
that is excellent!
what did you make the head bit from?
Probably made things a bit complicated for myself but I bought some sheets of polystyrene, cut out 7 layers to the rough shape including hole in middle for my head, stuck them together then cut and sanded to get nice and smooth and the correct shape.Then had to cover it in PVA glue in order to spray paint. Worked out quite well because the PVA made it nice and strong once hard!
Body is actualy 2 boxes cut and put together to get the correct shape and now painted black with a funky tie.
To much time on my hands
wow! That's effort - I thought you'd started with one of those hard foam jackets for a boiler
blimey did you used to work on Blue Peter? it looks great!
You know when you start these things thinking it will take 20 mins and a few quid, more like 2 days and about £50!! Suprising how quickly the money goes on paints, brushes, glue, materials... The head has 3 coats of PVA on it which was about 4 bottles.
Might ebay it after tomorrow night
Do it - domainer charity auction
Maybe I could swap it on ebay for RST.co.uk??
If it was made of solid gold then you might have a chance...!
Your on your way to your own Alf costume lol, just another 4 days work and another 50 quid !!! but don't tell your missus what you did with the rug
No kidding!!! :grin:
