    Re: Han In Carbonite: In the rubber

    Yes, I could mke it in resin. But the hard rubber, is like... the floor mats of your car. Its pretty hard. hard enough that if its glued down, you wont know its rubber. If you know anyone with my rubber knees, you know how hard it is.

    These will be 'running' this week. The first one with photos should be up mid week. The shop closd (too big to do at my house) friday, befire I could do the last sections of sleeve.

    No, I didnt like the hard coat, so I had to take a sheet of plywood, and build a 'rack system' to do the hardcoat with.

    Ill post a pic. I need to run by the shop and get some rubber for some more knees anyway.

    Awesome, cause theres gonna be about twice the cost in materials for this booger. But it should create some excelent repros.

    Does that mean they are going to be 600 and not 300...interest may be waning since my wife is reading this too.

    Re: Han In Carbonite: In the rubber

    As soon as there are some avaiable in a really rigid and stiff material (I don't want people say "hey that's rubber" when they touch it) I'm definately in...sry had to say this again

    Price is not an issue for me...furtonately.

    If the sections are cut up to let's say 3 or 4 pieces it wouldn't be a problem to ship.

    Re: Han In Carbonite: In the rubber

    I can pour you one in hard resin, its not a problem.

    The plan is to pour on tues/weds this week and get photos up.

    The delay is restarting the hard coat, and building a frame. Ill post a pic of the frame tonight or tomorrow and you'll understand

    I think the rubber in 1/2 inch thick would be like car tire. Kinda hard to tell its rubber unless you know its rubber for those others that are worried.

    I am also going to goof around with making rubber sections in hard resin, so it will 'fold' but am not 100% sure how that will work, but we will know soon!

    The delay was us going back and building this, to better support the dissassembling of the hard shell.



    There will be a complete tutorial on making this posted on completion. (Except the mistakes hehe

    Re: Han In Carbonite: In the rubber

    Yesterday before we started, did two more sides yesterday, two this morning.

    It will be demolded this afternoon. Ill hopefuly be able to pour one before I go out of town tomorrow morning, if not, im going to ask Mike to pour oneand send me pics of it.

    Should have pics by this weekend so people can commit or opt out, so I know how much material to order.

    Re: Han In Carbonite: In the rubber

    WOW i have only done smallish silicone moulds and they were hard enough to lay up. this is looking great. sadly though i think the cost of shipping this bad boy to Oz will kill me alone. though i know some convention holders that might be interested. awsome work so far.

    Re: Han In Carbonite: In the rubber

    I am also interested...


    But i have a few questions.

    1.- How accurate is it?

    2.- When we get it, will we get the whole thing, including the sides with the panels?

    3.- If you mail it rolled... will it keep straight after taking it out of the box? or we should build some kind of structure to glue it to...?

    4.-Can we see pics of the original that you are using as a mold?


    Thanks

    Regards

    Alfredo


    PD: Sorry about my english...

    Madrid -

    I can help answer that one for Mike. It's as accurate as it's going to get actually The master is "my" former Illusive Concepts HIC. About as close as anyone will get to the real deal. It was an absurdly low number too. I think #87 of #500 ?? Mike can correct me on that one .. but it was low. And in MINT condition

    Well, unless Mike beat the crapolla out of it after he picked up from my house

    Re: Han In Carbonite: In the rubber

    Well, I said I could help I can't answer the rest for Mike unfortunately. Sorry brother. And I think I misunderstood you too. I didn't realize you knew what the master was because you were asking for pics. I thought you were asking what the master was. Sorry about that. I feel a little silly now

    Re: Han In Carbonite: In the rubber

    Too tired for questions, but FP had it on the nose. Its his old one, it was mint (the molding process broke a finger tip off! so now its not)

    This thing is massive. the end rubber piece is 22 lbs 3.5 x 15 x 15.

    It takes a full gallon kit of rubber or resin to pull one, havent tried resin, but im assuming the same as rubber.

    Heres the pic you have all been waiting for.

    Its me holding the heavy sucka up.
