I thought I'd share some pics of my HIC build. It's been a year since I first began, bit most of the time the project has been collecting dust in my lounge. Recently it has picked up some pace.
First I had the side and front 'frame' panels CNC cut from vector files (.ai) that I made from cking's drawings.
These were made into the box. It looks square but it has the correct sloped sides and is narrower towards Han's head.
Then a 4-piece polyurethane resin casting of the Illusive Concepts HIC was fitted.
This was then made nice and the edges were routed as per the drawings.
The block was then finished, sealed and primed.
My pattern was then moulded.
I began casting out the HICs in fibreglass.
Each one has a timber frame to prevent flex and give wall hanging options.
Here is my test casting in primer.
I used Rover Storm Grey as my base coat and then masked off the edges and lightly dusted Toyota Silver Lightning to create a subtle difference between the block and the Han Solo section
I created a light patina using grate polish to bring out the details.
Here it is with my control panels attached.
Here is an pic of the 8 panels.
Here is my completed 'hero' panel.
Thanks for looking!
