26th March 2011: Complete Finialy did all the detail and attaching diffrent parts tonight used some old bits and bobs for the piston looking section then bought some thick gold poster paint for the back of the gun and used sticky back foam for the Connector bracket
Really happy with the completed work now . took a while but was worth it consideringf i came form 4 cardboard tubes xD
21st March 2011: Gun update 2 ok so erm painted the back end of the gun today took a while to get the right shade ( or close to ) but i think Ive got pretty close going to add another coat of it tomorrow
also made the trigger section today got a plastic toy gun from shop cut back end of and grinded down a piece of wood so that it would fir snug into the back end then sprayed with silver in order for it to recive its gold coating tomorrow
so all thats left now is the coats of paint and the detail painting i have the handle which i will put on once the painting is done
18th March 2011: Polka polka dots :D Ok so yeah got my paint and shirt out today and started on the first coating of his polkadots on the shirt i used a circular spounge for the first layer just to get the shape got the fabric paint from hobbycraft lightend and thickend abit with White immulsion. so yeah happy with first coating need to do collar then get my detail brush to accentuate the sections on the dots that have faded
17th March 2011: Gun progress Ok so started on the gun a couple of days ago ( you probs have seen the pics)
the main barrel was easy long plastic reinforced tubing about 16" in diameter.
the hardest part was the drop at the end of the gun tried many things but none worked until recently . got 3 long tubes about 3/4 " in diameter cut two down and left one its full length then taped these together then placed the longer tube down the 16" tube and bolted into place , once this was done added the paper mache which has now set (see pic)
Still got alot of work to do the paper mache needs smoothing then painting also need to add the handle,end tube and the trigger part but hey wouldn't be fun if it wasn't challenging
