Great work on the hut, it looks really well cast.

Thanks OMN.
The casting was a bit hit-and-miss this time around; Once I'd solved the various leaks and mould warpage the parts came out quite well. The occasional part has a few bubbles inside, and I did have quite a large pile of miscasts, but the outside of the pieces are as good as possible.

Thanks. Indeed. Although it's not a vehicle that I've ever studied in such great detail before, there's many things about the Spinner that I've never considered in the past.
Being smooth is very important, it's a very smooth and rounded shape (again, more-so than I had expected).

Hut kit looks awesomw bud, have you decided a price?
Thanks, Cam'. I'm looking at £20 for these first 4 kits and then future batches may be more (depending on the number of miscasts etc., but I'll aim to make them worth it somehow).

I'm at the stage of scribing the panel lines, some glued on bits need to dry and then it's time to hold my breath and go for it.

Here it is with pencil lines on for a guide:


Once the lines are done I'll make the police lights and then make the stand.

I have a Spinner model/toy from the Blade Runner Super Ninja Tiger Dragon edition, wold it help you if I took pictures of that? It is quite detailed.

Thanks Brian. You'll be able to tell where I've "deviated" from the design then.

I've been using a variety of pictures form the internet, most of which appear to be of a toy.

It'd be nice though, if it's not too much trouble, especially the lights on top, Thanks.

If I was going to go for accuracy, I'd have made a much larger version (and may do in the future anyway) and actually measured things rather than do it by eye.

Still adding details to the Spinner (and yet seemingly not getting nearer to finishing...)

I have scribed the lines. Some will need neatening once I've primed (so I can see what I'm doing).
And I've added the lights to the underside; the top half of slices of the smallest sprue I had.

And I've started to make the top lighting cluster...


The lights for the top, however, are oval in shape.

So I thought I'd try an experiment to see if things like lights and gems can be made from clear sprue; this is part one of their making...


You can see that the result is a frosted shape. I'm hoping that a gloss coat will clear this up (clear, geddit? ).
I also have to colour these and inconveniently they need to be yellow and blue and I have green and red clear paints... Will need to be imaginative (possibly adding colour to the gloss to create a glaze...).

Not where I should be

Looking brilliant.

You could try painting behind the lenses the vivid colour required. It may "glow" through.

Although you should be fine mixing up a coloured glaze.

How quick do you need this bit sorted, I have an idea that might work but want to see first.

Thanks Cam'. I did think about painting the rears, but not sure if that will work with domes like this (as from the side they will be uncoloured). However, I will experiment and report back. I need to mount them first before painting, just to make it easier to hold them for a start.

How quick do you need this bit sorted, I have an idea that might work but want to see first.
Ideally I want this finished this week, but as soon as possible really. What did you have in mind?

Missed the example hut on the last page with the miscasts. The "L" shape of the building is nice.

I can't wait to see what ends up with this project.

Thanks Again. And I have set aside the parts for each of the 4 kits to be built like this also (although you can do something completely different).

Lights... Done!

The domes from before were glued to a piece of plasicard (as the original lights have a base) and were then cut out and smoothed as best as possible.

The rest of the light fitting was made from a length of plasticard and a couple of plastic rods.
The "square" lights are again carved clear sprue.

The "square" lights were glued on first, angled appropriately due to the angle of the mount on the Spinner. Then the dome lights were glued to lengths of plastic rod and these were glued in-between the other lights. (See pic')

These then fit into drilled holes in the top of the Spinner (not glued yet to make painting easier; there are windows under the lights).


The light on the side of the Spinner, the one that appears to be able to move up and down, involved pinning a strip of plasticard to the Spinner, top and bottom. I then glued another strip of plasticard on this to help hold it's shape in the future.

Then the dome light (with it's plasticard base) was glued to a length of plastic rod and that to a lump of sprue.
This was then pinned and glued to the strip.


That's the Spinner taken care of, now to make it's flying stand... where's my cotton wool...

No strings attached.

Thanks Stormwall. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

The structural part of the Spinner's stand is done and I'm just waiting for the primer to dry so I can start adding the cotton wool.

Primed and base-in-progress:

I used 2 Tau drone flight stands, but instead of relying on their strength I drilled some paperclips a looooooooooooong way into both the stands and the Spinner. I also pinned them to the base with 2 pins, aligned front to back, for strength.

Then started covering them in cotton wool...


Once the glue for that had dried I painted it all black (as I do) and then added more cotton wool to "fluff up" the jets a little...

...as it turns out, a little too much, I prefer how it looked above so I'll be thinning these down a bit once the glue has dried.

I also included a scale shot.


Once I've sorted these "jets" it'll be painting time...

Now that is a splendid effect my friend!! very nice! I notice in the reference pics the "steam" downwash is predominantly wwhite with some deeper greys ... are you going to add some? How does the cotton wool take paint? Or...will you leave it because actually nearly the same effect is created with the flight stands you used...

Really nice though!

You prop know already.... but regular kitchen sponge can work well for these kinds of effects too... although maybe better for smoke etc. and not the steam kind of effect...

nice

Thanks Magos.
The thing to remember about that reference picture is that the Spinner and the steam/smoke are back-lit; this make the smoke look darker than it would if the lighting is from the front.

But yes, there will be more painting. The contrast between the black (should have used a dark grey) stands and the white cotton is a bit too stark at the moment. The idea of the black flight stands was to give a dark core to the "jets", I just need to blend that into the white outer layers.

Cotton REALLY likes to soak up paint, but as to actually painting it I'll have to report back on that when I come to the greys and whites on it.

Really nice though!

Ta. Yeah I had a look at this cotton next to some spare stuffed toy ...er... stuffing and went for this as it was a finer texture, which would be better for this scale.

I've poked and prodded the cotton now and made it more "jets" and "smoke-covered ground" (rather than the "lots of cloud" you see above), and I'm happier with it now.

I'll be back once more painting has happened.

Thanks. He said he wanted it on a flight stand and this immediately popped into my head.

So... painting cotton wool.

Not great. It might be ok if you wanted to tint the whole in one or two colours, but building up layers of paint ends up with a matted result as the paint sticks the strands together, leaving it not so fluffy.



However, it has reduced the contrast issue.

I'm going to try and stick a little more cotton wool over this to give it back it's wispiness.

The windows are also in progress and will be a blend from black to red to orange to pink, with white highlights to give the feel of the neon lights of Bladerunner.
And it should contrast nicely with the blue body... I think.

And now with more cotton wool (and the windows in progress)


This may be the way to do cotton wool things; dark core, a layer of intermediate tone cotton, and then a layer of unpainted cotton (or dyed if you want another colour).

Those windows look awesome so far Doc.

not going to apply the same neon reflections to the rest of bodywork are you?

I really don't know what to suggest with the cotton wool, you might be on to some thing... what about instead of paint you use a wash, like diluted ink, then let it dry?
