Seeing Adams ComiCon costume actually drove a long time follower of Tested to registering here and posting. Why? Because it reminded me of one of my very first serious ventures into making and costuming. I did not make a space suit, but settled for a facehugger. This was something like 12-13 years ago. I just went up into the loft and got a picture of what is left of it:
Duct tape, wires, paint, some foam and liquid latex. Oh! And fake finger nails, of course :)
Instead of having one behemoth sticky thread for all creations.. maybe encouraging people to create topics for their projects (or for themselves if they have multiple projects of a similar nature) would be easier to follow? It's kinda hard to keep track of new projects / project updates / conversation on a project when they're all mish-mashed together with other posts (most of which have multiple picture sets) like this.
I made a miniature TARDIS:
3D-printed in wax, for being made into a pendant - it's not as easy as it sounds, shrinking a shape and still make it work; we're not done yet...

As a game developer I don't create a lot of physical things, I'd like to say I create experiences. I'm not sure its ok to post about those things too?
I had some papercraft designs printed up years ago by (Shunichi Makino) I finally got the motivation to put one together after the japanese papercraft builds. I chose the sandcrawer because it look the easiest (honestly had no idea what will and norm had planned).
I downloaded them from his website, he has lots of really amazing models the guy is a paper genius.
I think he was mention on still untested, I haven’t tried papercraft before but found it to be a lot of fun.
Please forgive my grammar and spelling I have a touch of dyslexia.
Here are some pics.
@Betelgeuze: People have posted software before, its all stuff someone made :)
Here are some photos of the tricycle I built for my grandsons (gee, that makes me sound old...)
Anyway, this was a scratch build based on plans purchased from Sidewalk Flyers. I made several modifications, including doing a different cowling and seatback. The main construction was 1/2" plywood and the engine and turtleback in foam and fiberglass, using the moldless composite technique.
This was about 200 hours of work, not a project for the timid. The paint job of course is based on the famous P-51 "Miss America" that many of you know from the Cox model airplane.
I welded the crank and tail wheel from mild steel, and the control stick from conduit. There was a little of every kind of skill involved, and it went together like a very big R/C airplane.
It was a big hit with the grandsons.
@fxgovers: Bending the wood for the fuselage sides: The plywood was first routed to 1/4" thickness in the two areas to be bent. I wet the plywood with a lot of water and then heated it with a steam iron. After about 10 minutes, I was able to bend the wood safely. I made a jig to hold the pieces in place and weighted it with bricks. After drying overnight, the bends held.
@Crimson_Sky: Wow that is amazing... the detail and everything just wow
Had to try out this paper craft thing - Here’s the result:
It’s the Sankei kit of the house from My Neighbour Totoro.
I also made a rough little stop motion log of the build:
It’s my first attempt at paper craft, so I took it as a learning experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but found it quite tricky - Mostly because the material is rather unforgiving (there’s very little you can do to fix any mistakes after the fact). I got the the bug now though an will certainly be buying more of these kits.
