Nice job on the rivet tool.

Yeah, that mesh looks tricky. Frame is a good choice. Only other thing I could see would be to perhaps try and hit each joint of the mesh with CA...but I imagine it would snap off after you trim. The frame works...makes sense.

The scratching building is the best part.

Scratch building is awesome, so much fun. Nothing like building a model that is totally your own.

Looks great Ian. I can't scratch. Scratch that I'm ok with pipe work, but I'm not a scratch on you guys. Scratchy.

Since my wife is a 3D animator and designer, she worked up a couple of items for a 3D printing test with Shapeways.

Here are the wire frame and shaded models:




And here they are printed using the "Frosted Ultra Detail" material.

And here's the paint up. Took it very well, and the texture actually works for the sewer cover.

Great work, both of you. Too bad you hadn't cast that sewer cover in resin. :)

Well the jack and sewer cover only cost $7.72, so I'm not that worried about printing more.

Bit of custom working on the brake rotor since the tire's off.

Starting to lay out the diorama.

My scene idea is to show the pickup with a flat (via pick axe!) and just a trail of blood leading to an open sewer entrance. The poor bastard didn't even have a chance to finish his Coke.

Think this sandpaper would work for an asphalt road base?




Was thinking maybe some yellow lines, a phone pole.

Do it. Add a level, curb to the back if you can.
