also was stalking michaels today and came across some ribbon, add some white threads on each end, instant mexican blanket, and take out the string in the middle of the sequins and you have instant scale cds!

What are the stuff in the first 2 picture from.. I really think there cool.

There gamer pieces, left over pieces from like warhammer 4000 and other games, to get these usually you have to buy the whole kit, like 40.00 plus but i have a gamer store here in town that sells the left over pieces, the store is also a place that they play the games too and build right there so there are left overs, most of the small stuff at .10 to .25 each, a lot of the skulls make great shift knobs, there are endless uses for them. Just glad that shop sells them like this or i would never be able to own them.

yes I used to have a couple sign shops and when i went out of business sold everything, then i got to missing what can be done with a cutter but did not want to go bankrupt buying another one, then i came across uscutter.com, they sell cheap vinyl cutters, they are not the quality like a roland, summa, or gerber but for $275.00 they are not bad at all, the sample was cut at 1.25 " and may still come out near .75" so not to bad on quality and very reasonable for a vinyl cutter.

Checking this out, you got some kewl things going on, here is just a thought, what if you took the parymid and cut it in half, then mold it to the back of the cab, kinda a 3-D fx, looks kewl no matter, but it would also give you more room in the bed too, just an idea.....

Ill have to try that, i thought too it took up a lot of room, was also thinking of scratch building one a lot smaller as well.

It's a 3-d sign foam that is very durable and strong that can be carved to shape a urethane type foam, ever since i discovered this stuff I love it for this kind of work.

Im not a figure painter by far, but think this Aztec Warrior is coming out pretty good. Will have several of them on and around the model.

Thanks Mike,

Derrick,

got mine from signfoam.com , or you can check with a sign shop that makes customs signs in your area to see if they will sell you some drops or leftovers, thats a long shot but some might.

laying out the rest of the interior! IMG_20130323_155610_zps57eb9511.jpg
