I needed something a little more maneuverable then my f350 for comping. So, The juice is about to loose on c1 I’ll make a bigger post I’m once things are furthered and done, and I make an actual post for the moon buggy build.
Nice, wax is next. I’ve been doing lost pla but burn out is kinda tricky, today my wax casting resin for my SLA printer will be here and I print the entire set upVery cool!
When I was in undergraduate school (Sculpture) we did lost wax bronze casting. I was very fun, and I haven't thought about it for many years until I saw this.
The first attempts were aluminum. But I think aluminum is just a bit too hard to to work with with a basic set up, so brass has been the choice on the stuff that’s turning outAwesome stuff so far. Did I miss where you mentioned what type of metal you are casting with?
Nice! I started with the hora body, but it was way weird different dimensions side to side and what not, I pretty much just used his seats, and roof. Then redesigned/modified most of the rest. Flares are my design. Nice ttb! I’ve gotten one designed aswell. The only thing I didn’t find is a perfect dog bone to make that passenger side shaft. Maybe one day I’ll finish it, the idea of fighting TTB on my daily and little truck sounds horrible currently.Looking good! Is that one of the bodies from Cults? Hora or Aleesa? I've got a couple set of file from them and they needed a fair bit of work. Also, did you design those flares?
I'm loving the cast pieces, too! I've been playing with the idea of printing and casting a TTB for a second build. It's a rough design so far, but the concept works.
