Takara stuffs and goodbye Jumbo-Kaggra (keshi).
HOT DOG am I every happy as flip with what just came out of my pressure pot! About four months ago, I kitbashed together a M.U.S.C.L.E. style Micronaut Time Traveller (or a TT style MUSCLE - depending on how you look at it). I sucked at mold making, and before I even got my compressor through in the post, the mold was chewed up and I had no decent pulls.
I just re-made the mold (with 50% recycled silicone from old molds) and as I'm casting some flesh keshi (keshi being the small eraser-style toys you get in Japanese vending machines) I thought I'd pump out a flesh colour TT-Keshi too. I love it and i'm not painting it! It's not even sanded and looks good. There's a bit of black on his cheek and chest as I used stained latex gloves unwittitngly but I do love this figure.
That's a Blockman pilot next to him. I have a bag of these as I line them up in molds to act as sprue. Thank you Fred - a bag full of them will be heading your way shortly
I'm working on one other Takara-keshi. at the moment. It's pretty cool I think.:)
Acro-zombies. I've made a stack of them already. I sculpted a new chest section which looks ok in some colours but sucks in others and with a bit of clear resin and horror influence, there's a lot that can be done to improve these. Give it two weeks..
