Space Man
« on: June 04, 2018, 12:11:31 PM »
I was looking at the model of the month section this morning and
came across a spaceman that Dennis kindly posted 8 years ago
and got inspired to make a spaceman, I did try to get the white
helmet over the clear 11" round but it would not sit and the
clear kept pushing through the white cut out.

So we went for the easy option.

This is the original spaceman thread,

I then added the air tank.

Added a little black 160 to the front of the design.

Then thought I'd try for a more real world design.
Was not too keen on version two.

Tried to make it a little more basic.
Silver pen work would probably look better.

This is a variation of a body idea by David Ellis (Macker)

I tried to have two clear 260's for the helmet but it did not work.
Maybe a 350 would work.
