Right now the Predators are progressing nicely, with the las cannon side turrets attached and the top autocannon turret.
The tank treads were cast using a mold I made ages ago out of resin and curved while still soft. Additionally, the top hatches were part of the same mold, which made casting them together easier.
The top turret was made using two 40 mm bases making up the bottom portions and 2 pieces of foam board cut at various angles and the styrofoam areas covered with plasticard. The barrel was put together using a copper tube, 2 sided tape, and pen casing. Pen casings are becoming my favorite tubing material, since it is easy to cut, shape, and adjust.
Well, that's what's been keeping me busy this week. I'm hoping to finish the details on the Predators tonight by adding rivets and perhaps smoothing the edges down. If I can create the side exhaust pieces and recast them quickly, then the pieces will be done and I will move to resize the Rhino to better fit the actual size of the model.
Till next time!
