I started with the skull today, adding mechanical aspects, like these vented and screw joints.

I will dremel details in these sculpted parts, 24 hrs after Magic Sculpt has fully cured

Small pan head machine screws




It only takes a few drops of water to smooth the surface of Magic Sculpt


Hex Nut with tooth washer doubles as port for plastic wire loom

Thank you! Last night I worked on the chassis.



This 1/8" thick aluminum plate will reside underneath the foam/fiberglass top panel, which later will be sculpted with proper ventilation. In this case, a BIX 240 Stealth radiator.



I posted radiator template print-outs you can download. (PDF Files)

Before printing, you must select "None" for page scaling in your print dialogue box!

Download Page for each template

Where's the greenlee hole punch? Of all your tools....that's my favourite. I've been trolling ebay for over a year now for a steal on one, so far no luck.

1/4" thick aluminum will dull the blade Back to the bench for this project today, Black Plastic loom in (1/4" and 1/2" diameter) will be embedded and intertwined throughout the bezel and top panel. The entire skull will be painted matte black

I love this painting, Giger's landshaft XIX
