Scratchbuilding a Mech Part 2 – painting, base and lights

I’ve finished my mech build.  In this second and final part of the video series I paint the model, add some detail to the base and add some LED lights.  I’ve gotta say I really enjoyed doing this and am already thinking about ideas for another robot build.  I’ve also been watching diorama building videos on YouTube and want to include some of those techniques in the build.

Just to note that I’ve not made this video live on Youtube at the time of posting it here.  I’m just curious as to whether anyone actually looks at my blog 😉
I also took a load of pics so here’s a selection.

Scratchbuild Mech

This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, so I started collecting parts to use in this some time ago.  I’m going to be putting together a full video on building this so I won’t go into it in too much detail.  The sculpture is largely made from resin casts of things like lighters, yoghurt pots and deodorant bottles.
