    Dec 10, 2007, 10:33 PM - Screen Cast Zam Parts #1

    These are studio castings. Cold cast, original Zam parts that I have acquired. I don't know if they were ever used on any of the suits. That's all I can say for now. Oh yeah, and everything is tiny!!

    though i'm not much of a zammer (suit just wouldn't look right on me!), i think it's awesome that you got hold of those, and much much awesomer that you posted clear pics of them with size reference! that's something really rare in this world.

    Wow! Where did you get those?!

    I don't think the ones used on-screen were cold cast - I think I remember hearing an interview or something with Leeanna Walsman and she said the worst part was the (as she called them) ovary bits kept breaking and they would have to reshoot that scene again.

    Very cool. Leanna Walsman is hardly a large person So it figures the parts would be tiny! That's what struck me at the FIDM exhbit as well. These don't look as "dirty" or "used" as those either.

    The ones used on screen were cold-cast and so are these. Cold-Cast has nothing to do with them breaking. Cold-Cast means they have aluminum filler mixed into the resin. The reason they may have kept breaking is because rather than each ovary bit being cast as one piece, they were cast in two halves. The backside of that ovary bit I posted is flat.

    Oh, I thought that them being cold cast would have made them stronger...

    It doesn't really affect the properties of the resin that much, except it may be a little more brittle. Anyway, Dressing a Galaxy says they used aluminum filler on some of Zam parts (mixed in with some purple pigment).

    For those asking, I would like to quietly share the wealth eventually...

    Give it some time though.

    So, here's a pic of the toe spike for now.

    Those are awesome. I'd love to compare them with the pieces I've made and see how close I came!

    I have to agree... very cool of you to take great detailed pictures. I'm going to start my Zam (eventually!) and I for one definately appreciate having nice clear shots of these goodies. Thanks!

    So its almost time to share these... But one thing I had to do first was sculpt the matching handplate since I only had the left one. What do you think?

    Here are some rough trimmed castings. Note the Ovary bits come "pre-cut" for easy assembly.

    For anyone who's ready for them, I'm ready!
