Ghost Rider Figure Animated Style
1 Attachment(s)
Greetings Gang!
Right then, got handed this with a build/paint/lightup brief which will be a giggle in a wierd sort of way.

The figure was sculpted from this artwork...

Which is kinda different as monster/horror things of the model persuasion just really ain't me but anyway, job to do so kit parts looksee and whathaveyou are on the site at this page:

As is, the figure is about 11" tall. An inch or two will be added because of the base and all the gear i'll have to pack in to it but we'll see how that goes.

Enjoy! :D

Re: Ghost Rider Figure Animated Style
Thanks Drew old bean!
The castings are certainly good and better than the some of the things i've had to deal with in distant and recent past.

Well page 2 now up, parts clean, lighting prep and circuits built.

Go easy out there all!

Re: Ghost Rider Figure Animated Style
This could be the first kit I've seen with a butane ignition switch. ;)

Re: Ghost Rider Figure Animated Style
Thanks fellas :)
HWR, it's not that difficult really mate. Some of it is knowing what will and wont work and I don't know that much of it. The rest is kniwing how to sort of solder and read circuit diagrams.

If I can do it then it can't be that hard trust me.

Drew, yep but that's not the problem.
It's getting that propane tank hooked up, that's the bastard ;)

Doing some seam filling and the head LEDs installed and working so getting on with it, more when I got the next update sorted.
Take care all!

Re: Ghost Rider Figure Animated Style
And the next one is sorted, short but all there as needs be ;)

Next, the painting!
Oh yes...

Take care all :D

Re: Ghost Rider Figure Animated Style
very nice. I assume the flicker effect is being a little messed up by the recording frame rate.

Re: Ghost Rider Figure Animated Style
I believe you assume correctly sah!
Doesn't look quite right to how it does to the eye but it will have to do for now untill I can get better sorted which I will about the end of this build I reckon.

Not there yet but getting there so update time!
Page 4, Figure Paintwork.

And a pic for the thread of course...

Howdo gang!
Not an update as such but been having a play about with the DecalPro FX diy rub down decal kit and the results are promising.
At least it means I can do white decals now and that's a bonus. A bit of tarting up to the back of ole flame head with something by client request.

A smidgen of cleaning up to be done but not too bad methinks and the client approves so all good so far.

Plus side, it's taken about three days work after scanning the whole waterslide decal sheet and redoing the whole thing but this will come in useful for a future project or three :D

No carrier film or having to matt down on pearlescent paintwork and that will suit me just fine.

Take care all :icon_thumright:

Re: Ghost Rider Figure Animated Style
And out of christmas hibernation proper so update time :D

Page 5, Extra Figure Detailing, Motorcyle Parts Start.

And the pics of course:

Back jacket artwork all settled down.

Shoulder and glove knuckle spikes from machined steel.

This is what the on screen bike looks like...

So the start of the bike parts for the wreckage, machined aluminium and modified brass chain for the front forks.

And the stupidity continues!
Go easy out there all.

Re: Ghost Rider Figure Animated Style
And another update!
A twofer deal here, page 6 & 7, bike wreckage parts build and paint.

And the somewhat required thread pics of course :)

Fuel tank, slightly dented:

Torn away exhaust pipes:

And the front handlabars, bent up forks and tire:

And that's the lot for now, basework up next which will be a regular laugh riot i'm sure :D

Take care out there all!

I thank ya fellas!
Right then, pulling this thread back in to the light, we're off again!

Page 8, Base build start, brick wall section build, sorta dress rehersal.

Thread pics of course!

Base in raw timber.

Built but not yet fully finished brick wall section.

Sort of dress rehersal.

Much still to do, all waffle about that on the WIP page.
It's all good fun...really.
