SNG Daily Pictures 9-1-14

We worked today on the Holiday a bit. I was able to free hand some plans to the Martian space Craft and get the plans transferred to styrene and the build started. I wanted to make sure I could actually get the effect I wanted with and all styrene build. I was able to sheet one panel to my satisfaction and it worked great. Tomorrow I’ll sheet the hull top and bottom and get the command bridge started.
I forgot to share last week the Batman cape Mary made for me I’ll get some pictures wearing it as soon as I get a cowl out of the mold and painted. She did a great job!
I also finished off one of the three Communion Busts for the perks and one for Jim Boyle. Those will all be done this week.

Martians Attack SNG Update

I have been thinking of this design for our “Martians Attack SNG” space ship all week. Since we are changing everything about the old Mars attacks and doing our own design I wasn’t going to do a traditional saucer.
I need to do a 3 view still. The bottom is similar shaped with a concave in the middle and the engines that drive here. So much to do still but I hope to start framing up this bad boy later next week. All styrene and made to look like brass. I will have to build a CGI version too for shots of the ship in space that might be a bit tricky to do CGI alone.
There will be no molds and this is going to be a big model and you’ll be able to see the Martians inside those big glowing eyes! This model will be a one off.
Even though the film is a comedy, it’s going to be dark and creepy. Like a nightmare. Thanks again to Bill and Heidi Hughes for the great script.
More to come! And as Gary Hughes says, “Watch the Skies!”

    What a day today. It started off by finding out my mother had passed away a week after it happened because my three uncles claim they couldn’t locate me. Really? All they had to do was a Google search and bingo.

The show goes on and so does the work. I have always found that my work helps me thought life’s little hurtles. It sure did when my late wife was passing in 2013.
Today I got the ears molds made for the prosthetic Vulcan ears. Tomorrow I start the Martian mold. That will be the last in this series of sculpts. But there will be more. Lots more.
The pictures show some of the progression of these molds but it will be better explained in this weeks “SNG Weekly” show.

Wow video it still not uploaded but its processing. It might be a failed load. I’ll give it some more time.
Got more on the Skydiver done. That mast setup was a bear seeing how most of the parts were bad and I had to make new ones.

More work done on the cowls I’m hoping to mold them today but I am picky. Video will be up soon.

The Martian transponder continues and I nearly finished it. Still there needs to be about another 2 hours into it tomorrow morning, I need to add more brass tubes around the edge and back light it with some violet LED’s for an eerie glow. Also, there are those bent and curved tubes to add. And those steam punk rivets.

Tomorrow I will be finishing the top side of the Skydiver and polishing off the cowls they have to be molded this week.

With any luck I’ll finish off the Martian Thursday and have a mold making day on Friday.DSC03127 DSC03128 DSC03129
