Looks great Alan. I'm glad you aren't getting carried away and perhaps going a bit overboard!  This thing is CRAZY!  I look forward to watching the progress.

Ok some of you guys are crazy! LOL! Love the tentacles and tank! Here is a sample of my fish I've been working on! Just the first coats of paint... not finished yet! Also working on the sign for the background, yes I did think this was a sign competition not a science experiment!

CRAZY

There is NO way I can compete with youz guyz.

I still wanna make my Whale - but maybe by next spring.

At least watching this thread - I have an idea what to do.

JUST DO IT!  The whole point is not to win but rather to build the best piece you possibly can as a display piece for your own studio. Do a little each day and have fun with it. You will be amazed at what you accomplish.

Don't put something like this off. Tomorrow never comes -  only what you do today counts.

Leo Dan is right:

I agree with Dan...seeing each other push ourselves is 3/4 of the fun.  I'm excited to see some of the wild ideas you all have come up with, and it just adds to the whole thing. 

My own weekend did include some work on Thunderbolt Sub-Mangler.

I will most certainly DO IT.

I am not intimidated by the masters - I just cannot match the speed.

I will do the Whale - the Sign - and the little Whaling boat too.

A bit of green light wraps up my work today, a treat for completing the work that needed to be done through the course of the day.  Soon teeth...and then a surprise from the dark.

Hi everyone

WOW! Incredible work so far. I'm blown away and really enjoy checking everything out.

I've been working ideas over in my brain & my sketch book for a few weeks and also trying to figure out if I'm going to get any HDU in stock in time to doing any actual routering. LOL
So here's what I have in mind...

My approach is...it's the institute for study...so why not show a mechanical fish being studied.

I had the idea for the mechanical fish right away...it was the stand that gave me a tough time because it's one of my weaker "building" aspect. :)

Inline imageThis shows my rough sketch of the fish. It will be hanging from the stand with both sides of the fish ripped open with sardine can keys showing all it's mechanical innards.


Inline imagethis shows the stand which will consist of a series of rust pipes, rods, knobs, nuts and bolts and such + a magnifying glass on both sides and of course a large magnet at the top to attached the fish to.

Inline image Here's the base with the institutes name and will be two large gears stacked on top of one another.

Wow...what am I thinking?!?!? LOL I have a lot of catching up to do and I'm going camping for a week....hmmm...maybe mine will be teeny tiny fish with a huge wind-up key in it's back. LOL

If all goes well and I actually get it done in time I'm going to try and do a video featuring one of the researchers that work at the Institute...but we'll have to see. :)
