showcase: Onager Dunecrawler
Looking at the 2 dunecrawlers I think I highlighted the first one with a lighter color. it seems to pop a little more. I think I skipped a shade the first time. I think the new one, while more subtle, looks better.
I was not happy with how the magnetization of my first one. It looked fine and did the job but there were many parts and when I lost the main hub of the first tank I though I should try something different.
If you read my blog then you might remember that I wanted to do some casting. Well the time came for me to do it. I tried quite a few times to make a two part mold but I just couldn't get the molds to come apart. I went through a good amount of silicon mold just trying to get this right. I ended up just making a 1 part mold and removing the extra flash.
The parts I made a cast of were the round mount for the guns and the emblem on the side. After painting I think they look pretty good. I added a magnet on the inside of the crawler then just drilled a hole in the mount and added another battery. This makes the magnetization easy and the guns are each a complete set so they are harder to lose.
I am working on the exocrine next. I should have a update soon for that. It should be ready for the game day coming up.
