    I'll probably be more creative than I wish, because I design for what I would like to wear myself, and it'll be a bugger for it not to fit me

    2 left Tzench and it's only an interest thread, so you're welcome to put your interest in.

    As for the women's bucket, I am going to buy a small cycle helmet and work from there, I suspect it will lose 1-2 inches from my original, which has been established at about 1:1 size.

    Once again though, the Krayt dragon bucket will be 1:1 only, so may look a touch big on ladies.

    Once I get the women's standard sorted I'll do some female exclusive buckets too.

    It's fun this
    Maybe some custom women helmets?

    That'll be the plan, female bucket exclusives and no flowers, hearts or teddybears on them, I promise!

    I'm surprised about the Gigeresque quality, I tend to leave the subtle female genitalia references from my sculptures , but I think I know what you are getting at

    Thanks for your comments.

    Only a few days till I'm home and, once I have all my normal work out the way, I can look at getting the silicone onto this badboy.

    Ooh, ehm... meh... erm... Gahm..


    I'm putting this down to sweating over my own armour but I missed this entirely. I trust I'm still on ze lizt? I hope so. Money is of course in short supply but if you got one left for me after the other, paying customers, receive theirs, keep it back for me whilst I er, save up (and stop buying chocolate...).

    Re: Saz custom build #1 Krayt dragon

    Right, sat down with the bucket and realised I have a bit more prep work to do with this before I slop the silicone over it, I still have to rub it down to get all those little imperfections from casting out.

    Plus the back keyslot needs sorting as the resin and glass is a bit weak there and it needs reinforcing.

    Shouldn't take me too long, but I'd rather get it right, you know me, perfectionist streak and all.

    On the list, the TDH list is now full.

    There are some free slots left on the Mando Mercs forum if you want to be added to the list.

    Nearly done with the rear imperfections, need to get more car body filler to finish off, will be considering the amount of silicone I will be needing. Need more thickening agent too!

    Re: Saz custom build #1 Krayt dragon

    Nah, you kinda helped me out by sticking your seal of approval on it over there

    Anyhoo, I've just wept at the bill for the silicone I have just purchased online. The first two helmets are going to help me pay off my debts at this rate

    Seriously though, silicone is bought and only very fine correction work to be done, we're looking close to completion, so people will need to think about saving now, if they already haven't.

    Re: Saz custom build #1 Krayt dragon

    Yes, you are still on the list.

    As an update, a cursory spray of primer has revealed a few places where my fingers got sore and I didn't impress the scales as much as the rest, will have to go over them again.

    Mold stuff is here and it's just waiting for me to finish that part, which should be in the next day or two, work schedule allowing.

    Re: Saz custom build #1 Krayt dragon

    I want to ask you guys a question, some holes have appeared in the dragon from etching out the scales, now, I'll show you a picture of them and see if you think I should attempt to fill them in or not, as helmets get battered, I was in two places as to whether most people would prefer the "damage" to be there, let me know.





    And here's one of the helmet

    I see nothing wrong vod, a minor blemish here or there is perfectly fine by me.

    Re: Saz custom build #1 Krayt dragon

    Well, as you can see, I've been deepening the scales with a needle, I just don't want people to be spending all that money and being disappointed with it is all.

    Once I'm done with that I'll be sealing and starting.

    Ink will look really cool between the scales

    Ink? Like pen ink? How would I cover the scales or cover the dragon so I don't get paint on it... I'm not to good with masking fluid. lol

    Yeah, you put it on with a brush then wipe off the ink from the top, the ink won't leave in the recesses.
