Re: MSE-6 Mouse Droid Build

Here is my next one!!! http://thumbnails.truveo.com/0008/67/4F/674F01393259D09C8A8088_Large.jpg The cool thing is I can use the chassis and make another shell with the Robot Chicken Mouse at the helm. Thanks everyone for the kind words. This was a fun project and should be a lot of fun at Motor City.

Re: MSE-6 Mouse Droid Build

New shell and base. I mitered all the joints for a clean look. Used some material from Mike Lika (thanks Mike) to cover the ends of the exposed foam core and it worked perfectly. http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p220/jerryarusselljr/MSE-6%20Build/IMG_8504-1.jpg http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p...

Re: MSE-6 Mouse Droid Build

Thanks for the offer Wages!

I actually found some of the same foam board but this time with a laminated skin and it comes in several thicknesses.
Bought some to test the paint and it worked fine!

I will post up some progress pics later tonight. :thumbs:

Re: MSE-6 Mouse Droid Build

I actually shot the paint on this thing last week and the results - not good. I used a water based spray since I was concerned that the regular spray paint would melt the edge of the foam board leaving it pitted. Turns out the foam did not pit or melt, but the paper surface absorbed too much of the ...

Re: MSE-6 Mouse Droid Build

I moved up to a stronger material for the next mock build up. I put it together with ruff seams with no mitering the joints. Turned out a bit ruff, but it was really sturdy. Enough so that I was actually going to stick with this as the final product at first. I used foam display board. The kind a ki...

MSE-6 Mouse Droid Build

Just about finished with my MSE-6 Mouse Droid. I figured I would post up some pics for anyone considering building one. Open some dialog on specs, reference pics, methods, and such. So far it has been a pretty easy build, cheap, and it is a nice little project that one could involve the kid(s) in fo...

Re: Lookin for flexible welding shield.

Flash,

I picked mine up at a local ACE hardware but they also have a lot of welding supplies on hand. It is called Ace Union Fire here in Monroe right off 75.
If you try a welding materials supplier you might have some luck.

Re: TK-9317's Rum Sleg Build - WIP

Now that I see the dreads in the photo they do not look "dread" enough for me.
I have been chatting with some belly dancers on Facebook who make their own dread out of synthetic hair.
Sounds pretty easy so I may give that a try and change them out.
Got to go to the Beauty Supply tomorrow!
