There will always be something. When I tried to swap my hard drives over, I forgot that I'd configured the old HDD as RAID, SSD's can't be that. However Windows would only boot if the HDD was RAID. Took me ages to find a simple command line that would fix that.

The answers are there, it just takes forever to find the right one

CHEERS!

I'm just leaving the pc 'as is' for the moment.

Finished Rescue, might do the odd touch up like on her boots.
Painted all the gantry arms black, they still need to be airbrushed a graphite metallic. Done half the tedious EL-Wire work using regular super glue very carefully as the gel stuff I bought is garbage! It probably needs an accelerator or something. The bloody wire shorted out on me when I went to test it after all that work (and loss of finger tips) which is not ideal... I seem to have found the trouble spot but there's not quick permanent fix with this stuff so I'll just try gluing in place there to keep the internal micro wires connected, one must have broken.

Whoah! Very cool. Pepper turned out great, and the light on the gantry are looking awesome.

Some glues can be hit or miss, that’s for sure. I gave up on Loctite just recently. Switched over to Gorilla Glue, and so far so good.

Thank you Mark! Now I know why the Loctite was on sale, nearly bought the Gorilla Glue, should have but I'm used to Loctite being a top brand for mechanical applications for guns and bikes etc..

It could have been an old batch, too, though. I just found for plastics, Gorilla Glue seems to work a bit better. And you can get that precision tip that screws on and off easily (doesn't end up glueing itself to the cap -- I wonder if there's enough space between the cap and the tip to keep it from doing that like other SGs tend to).

Sounds good but I go through so much SG I buy large bottles of the stuff for cheap!LOL. Gorilla Glue would have to be for special uses only.

Thank you guys! I ordered 50cm more, it'll mean making a splitter and I hope the mains power converter won't blow the shorter piece but fingers crossed should work even if I have to resort to batteries. I'll be cutting sections out of the floor as retracting panels with smaller arms coming out like in the movie; I'll also be painting the floor and steps black as per the movie too.

Don't doubt your abilities, everyone's their own worst critic! Yes experience and techniques go a long way to improving custom work but that can all be learnt over time, there's no rush, enjoy learning something new everyday, I still do! Very Happy I also get frustrated at times, it's only natural, just take a break and do something else for a bit and come back with fresh eyes. 'Keep The Faith' as Bon Jovi say LOL.

Got the last bit of EL-Wire to install then make a splitter. I finally got around to painting the mechanical arms but now have to work out how to attach them best, probably magnets like the original ones. I built my first Master Grade Gundam figure (the other was Perfect Grade), it's amazing how small they turn out when compared to their boxes which come jam packed with runners of parts, just a lot of engineering in one little figure.

Thanks GF! The paint match and the screws help offset most of the design differences I hope.

Nothing exciting but needed to be done, mounted the shoulder armour in a way similar to HT's version (rather than the KO's lazy effort of just plugging it into torso armour too far forward and not able to articulate) but without the fancy hinges and springs to do it. I just drilled carefully and applied SG very carefully so not to muck up his shoulder articulation, seems to work well. I also applied nail varnish to all his fingers and arm joints to tighten them up, then painted some on his mechanical chest parts for a glossier finish.

Looking good, my friend. So, when you finish the gantry are you going to do sequential photos of the arms taking off bits of his armour! ‘cause that would be epic.

I'll give it a go! Wink I was thinking of calling it (the finished pics thread) 'Date Night' as JARVIS is reminding him in the movie clip that Pepper is expecting him, thought her turning late as Rescue would be an amusing twist.

Nicely done. And I see what you guys meant about the film's CGI making the robo-hands (or whatever they really are) look too thin; this looks more plausible.

You lost me there a bit GF, I haven't changed any parts, must be the camera angle/lighting? I'm still bugged by that unarmoured arm's 'puffiness' and will probably redo it super tight using a stronger mesh as this type is prone to shredding.

shovelchop81

shovelchop81
Redone the left arm to make it thinner. I was going to use some black shrink tube but couldn't find any the right size so painted the arm instead, the mesh I needed to use was the wrong colour but everything else was right so I painted that too. I sewed the mesh on tight, trimmed it, took it off and put it back on with the seam edges on the inside. Then reattached the wires and armour bits with the bands trimmed down for the now slenderer arm. Looks the part now, glad I redid it, I still need to make a ball for the socket inside the torso to attach it properly though.

Did what I said above, seemed to have worked out fine and is free. I finally found the elusive connector to finish making the splitter wire for the EL-Wire. Cut the base plate to make trap doors for arms to come out from/go back in etc.. needs filing and black paint along with the steps.

The first batch of pics are just to show you why I needed more ferrous anchor points for the gantry arms, the existing positions are all too low to be used by themselves. I made more by using some thin sheet steel that I had cut off a guitar rack to make one of my gun racks, then after some filing and bending super glued them in place. I've now got clear nail varnish drying on the original arms I converted to be articulated as they were a bit loose due to the heavy resin they are made from. All the arms are interchangeable of course due to the magnet system.

Oh, wow! I have to admit, when you mentioned the robotic arms you were attaching, I had no idea what you were talking about. It's been absolutely YEARS since I saw the first Iron Man films, and I only saw one Avengers movie way back when it first came out. So I really couldn't picture what you meant. But now I get it -- and it looks excellent! Smile

But now I get it -- and it looks excellent! Smile

Thanks guys!! SWS: yeah it's kind of like a roiling sea of arms and annular armatures that convolute and spin around him as he walks, taking off bits of armour and storing it under the retracting floor as he strides down the landing platform on STARK Tower whilst talking to JARVIS as he goes.

I've now attached his left arm and hand properly also cut up and dremelled the armoured arm turning it into separate pieces to be held by the many arms which will hold his helmet parts and chest plate too;now I just need to work out how to do all that! Wink
