It definately shows how ricky/uk RC helmet is so much better than the buckethead that we got from Hasbro. It's lot more detailed and realistic. It looks like you've been doing just a little bit of casting lately. Did you make a two part mold for those parts? How many molds did you make? Did you make more than one so you could cast multiple sets at once? Great squadrun.

Now how come I couldn't get that AT-TS in my easter basket last sunday!Mini rigs make for some great custom good. This is the way those one man walkers should have looked in the movie. Much more mean looking than the bike looking things they ride in the movie.

It's great to see this guy without his helmet on. Is this guy Scorch or another RC? According to the background information on the card, his name is Scorch because he burned his eye brows off. You should scratch them off. It would be a great little detail.

That NULL ARC trooper is really cool. I like that huge backpack he has.

So far so good Brent. I would shave down those arm bracelets so the arms are clearner looking. The baroness head works well for this character. The hand skin color is different from the head but that is a really difficult thing to get mixed correctly even for the non color blind.

I finally got the twins casted last night!  It turned out better than I though. No major bubbles and the face came out perfect. Unfortunately, my wife took the camera with her to her grandma's house for the week so I can't take a picture. I'll get some pictures up next week when she returns.

The hardest part of this experiment is not making too much silcone rubber or plastic for the project. I've wasted way too much for the small results I've gotten. Does anyone have a good way to pour and mix just a small amount of casting plastic without leaving two thirds of it unused?

That shows the value of doing a group project. Without it, weird unique customs like that would never have been made.

Congrats Greg! Did you win with the Calimari Dancer?

The problem with the bombstrike torso is that it doesn't match the hips. Their torsos come to a rather sharp point where there is a big disconnect between the hips and stomach. That area needs to be filled in with some sculpty or reduce the torso so things line up.

That one is ok but Steelbonnet's version is far superior.

I don't know about this one. To me, he seems to be in a very unnatural pose. I mean try sitting in an upright chair with both hands on the arm rests and have you legs in the air. It's not an easy position to hold. Basically, he has his back set firmly against the chair but has his legs up in the air without support. It would seem better if his legs were shorten and made to have his feet on the ground.

The arms and body and head are alot better than the first attempt but in the first attempt you got the legs positioned better. I don't think its quite there yet.

Your joking right? Gasoline? Your scaring me Jesse.

That's brilliant and very evil looking too. I'm planning on using the Baroness for a head with maybe a modified rots Tarkin body.

I boil sculpty all the time. Its safer than baking it. Just microwave a cup of water for about 2:45 sec and put the part in.

Not yet. I used a q-tip to put the vasiline on. Do I need to cote the inside of the mold with something before pouring in the casting material? I think the hardest part so far was to keep the silcone on the piece while I was waiting for it to harden. I had to keep scooping it back on.

Those are great! Pimp daddy looked like he had lots of fun. I love the picture with him and darth tadder. So did Pimmy beat you at Texas Hold 'em?
