It was a long day today and a long video coming. And it was mixed bag.

Got a Sixth Finger mask poured up. Something I use to do alone but couldn’t manage anymore do to my hernia surgery over a year ago. The mold filled with rubber alone must have weighed 100 pounds plus. It took my friend Manuel next door at the custom car shop to help us. Quite a awake up call but we got it done.

Next up Mary started a tracing of the Mars Attacks Alien to the scale of the puppet we are making. About half scale. Next up is to start the armature for it and all the mechanics. Not to mention next week I will start the head sculpture.

Then a bunch of work on the D. So many light leaks to fix, seams to blend and additional painting to the hull. By tomorrow I should have it be ready for clear on Wednesday. That is if I get the rest of the windows opened up. It’s going well.

More tomorrow gang.

It took a can opener a machete and a guide to get it to fit. Got the impulse engines lighted too. Fix a lot of the light chips and started in on the windows with a rat tail file and for the unlighted windows a super fine sharpie. worked like a charm. All cover in the up coming video.

Chipped paint all fixed. All the Aztecs are done. Lets move on to the other painting of the various colors on the hull, clear and decals. After that, next stop…the dreaded windows!

Well it’s been a heck of a time working with all these masks. I’ve just about gone blind but I’m starting to see again! LOL!

So between yesterday and today I got all the rest of the Aztec masks on and got the hull painted. I ran into some problems along the way but nothing that can’t be adjusted with ease.

Thursday I’ll be able to finalize the paint job. Clear coat and we are ready for decals. Then there’s all those windows to scratch open. 😉DSC02567 DSC02569 DSC02570 DSC02572 DSC02573 DSC02574 IMG_0220 IMG_0223 IMG_0225 IMG_0227 IMG_0231
