Macrobinoculars WIP
« on: Jan 15, 2016, 01:58 PM »
Hey all. I am working towards Beast Hunter so wanted to make some macrobinoculars for my kit. Started off by buying some cheap binoculars off of amazon and the end piece off an old camcorder.



Then built a sintra casing.





Created a front cover to allow just the lenses to stick through.



Then did the same at the back for the lens. Also wrapped a chain around the binoculars and made small holes to pass it through.



Next step is to find out which greeblies I want to add and to smooth it all out before painting.

UPDATE

Added some greeblies:





Next to smooth around the edges / prime / paint. :D

Always start with the big one, that way the rest seems easy and everyone thinks you're either insane, or a hardcase. Either way you win!

Thanks vod! Feel free to steal my idea :D

Added silver weathering and an embossed mythosaur skull. Need to do some acrylic paint washes next.







Added the black wash and muddy weathering as the red symbol was way too bright ;) Outside of lacquer I consider these good to go.
