Predator bio mask 1/4 scale modelling

by Spack on Tue Feb 24, 2015 6:10 pm
I've recently come into possession of a number of NECA 1/4 scale Predator figures, including the "classic" Jungle Hunter from the first movie with the "closed mouth" head. I've wanted to make a bio mask/helmet for it since I got it, and have spent quite some time trying to find a suitable 3D model to base it on. After much searching around and a number of false starts with low poly models I finally stumbled across a "pepakura" file designed to be printed on paper and cut out to make a full size helmet. Converting to a useable format for 3D modelling took a little time, but I was finally able to get it into Sketchup and start tinkering with it to try and make it suitable for printing in 3D.

I already had a rough mesh of the head from the closed mouth Predator that I'd created using 123d Catch on my phone, and sized in Sketchup to be as close to the physical version as possible. Using this I was then able to scale the pepakura mesh to the head, leaving a little...

Panzerzug BP44 Train Day 3

As a mockup this works pretty well and allows me, using the Flattery plugin, to unfold the outer surfaces and create a mesh that I can print out - initially using a card template to check that the shells will fit the running gear and won't too look out of scale on the track, and then to cut out the main plasticard panels. Smaller details like inspection hatches and armour strips can be drawn in Photoshop and printed out later as they will be flat and simply cut out of thin plasticard and glued into place on the main surfaces. Here's the locomotive main shell flattened out:

When I posted this on B&C, Some didn't believe I freehanded the banner... So, I painted another :D

I started by under coating with Chaos Black. then I dry brushed the lifted area with Shadow gray, followed by Fortress Gray. I then did a very light wash with Badab Black (which I didn't on the original) because...

Its going to be slow so bare with me, ill post any progress on here, feed back and criticism but most importantly encouragement more than welcome.

The gf asked me to paint a model for her, and as this was undercoated pre-5th Ed ( :roll: :roll: :roll: ) and no longer needed for it's original purpose :D

Unfortunately the light isn't very good, but I need to prove it was finished tonight, so it'll have to do for now.

Also finished one of my favourite FW models ...
