Gek2Win's Mods and Customs

Post by Gek2Win »

A little preemptive, as I am unable to take pictures of said mods and customs at the moment, but you can expect them relatively soon. I don't have a ton of expendable income, so I tend not to buy duplicates, so that's why proper customising is off the table. Also I don't think I'd be very good at it (trouble with the hands, yasee). But I have made a few things, so like I said you can expect that soon. But don't be too expectant, it's not going to blow you away.

So, here's my first two:

Regenerated 4th Doctor Mod

All I've done is put sharpie on the waistcoat in order to actually make it black, and here's the result. Not too bad. Hard to see though.

9th Doctor (black jumper)

Simple really. Used a sharpie again to colour in the jumper. Not that great, really messed up the neck, but ah well.

That's all for now. Don't expect much else, but I thought I'd share what I have tried.

You've done a grand job on the waistcoat! Really nice clean professional finish, shame they never did paint that, with Eccleston, if you wanted to fix his neck, rubbing alcohol or really, any alcohol should remove the paint (I say this, it may react with the plastic so be careful), I too have trouble with my hands, arthritis in all my fingers and wrists, and short sighted vision and never ware my glasses so painting can be, fun at times :lol: so I can relate. Citadel paints might work better on the jumper perhaps, they're a few pounds for a tub of one color and the works sell a pack of five decent paint brushes for £2 of varying sizes, if you wanted to go that route. You know, the red jumper, I know it's iconic and all apparently but I never could stand it due to the amount of times we got it! Green, black, blue, purple, any colour but red! As any dusty B&M set can testify..

Great work. A good start. If you het a pot of skin tone and a brush you can correct that 9. You'll get more adventurous and get better.

So, for various reasons I'm looking into getting a 3D printer. Firstly, I don't have anything to show yet, but I've been having a go trying to get used to Tinkercad, in preparation for an attempt at a project. Considering the prices classic Davros figures go for these days, and I'm such a fan of Molloy's interpretation, I'm going to have a go at making my own version. Now, I'm not sure how far I'm going to get, but the easy part should be to do the chair, so I'm going to focus on that first. I will have to find another program to do the actual body and head, but I'll deal with all that when I get there. If I make any substantial progress I'll keep you updated and if this project goes well, printing and all, I may do some more stuff that interests me.

Progress update; Base shape complete and work on the skirt has commenced. Referring back to the 3D printing thread, excellent work there by the way, it appears that Tinkercad is definitely not the way for organics. I'll have to look into alternatives.

Big thanks to Project Dalek, their Classic Davros chair plans are incredibly informative.

ZBrush seems to be the go-to for organics for many people. And project dalek is a great website!
