Back on the “Iron Giant”

After doing VFX yesterday for a few hours I put in a few on the Giant. He’s got his slotted hinge now so the mouth opens both on and axis and on the slot moving up and down same as in the film and as it turns out it’s very practical for full movement.

Started the inside recessed section of the chest. Had to dremel cut away a lot of the sub structure to do this.

I also started on the nacelle masters for the B-29. The original model kit never had the correct inboard engine nacelles to accomidate the landing gear. You can just see the electronic retract inside and the tires will just fit inside like the real plane.

I can now see why the designer did it this way because the gear and tires were to large to fit inside the this wing of the B-29.

Once I have the entire form I’ll make molds and cast them in epoxy glass.
