Submarine testing went very well at Chris Langdons pool in Ojah on Sunday. Video tells all.
Printed out with Mary’s help (she found the program online that breaks a large picture into 8×10 seconds you can print out and tape together) the Iron Giant to the scale I’m going to build him to. A bit over 6 foot. About one 1/6 scale.
Work begins and from the empnlarged plans and pictures I’ll start making the head a chest first. A mix of materials from foam wire cutting and expoxy glass to large sections crafted from styrene. All the masters will be molded in hard epoxy molds and some silicone.
Final cast pieces will be made from lightweight expoxy glass with and internal pose able armature. I’m never planing electronics, servos and voice .
