A summary post for hinu’s cannon SB.
Initial sketch for the cannon. Subject to changes.
I assume you know how I draw and cut shapes out of my plaplate. If you don’t, refer to this post.
Plaplate as the panels, plabeams as the structure inside.
fill the gap with epoxy putty. Masking tape is used to prevent epoxy putty from drying on top of unwanted surface.
after the epoxy putty is cured, remove masking tape.
remove excessive epo putty with cutter.
The following photos show the same part [added with more plaplate details], and several other parts created with the same method.
Scratchbuilding is not all about plaplate. Here I tried to find things I can use with a minimum effort of tweaking here and there.
An eraser’s body.
with a little bit detailing, the eraser’s body now looks more solid.
another eraser’s part for the long barrel.
When it comes to painting, parts like these really need quite a work of masking. Since I’m not able to make them snapfit like original Bandai parts.
