No real update to show, going slow on ears, need to get angle right and the angles on the tops of the ears is tricking to do with what I have...
I've started on the right bottom section while I practice with getting curves right

Maybe that colour or another 🤔

The odd shaped silver grey bit is the unfinished jetpack exhaust, the rest of the pieces are for attempting some anodising .....planning on doing the ears if I can make them and this works.... :laugh: and I'm not covered in bandages  :laugh: :laugh:

Update on the anodising attempt....failure  :laugh:. Will try again with a slightly different set up. The acid I used dissolved my alligator clips  :laugh:....and I didn't used aluminium wire. Maybe that effected things 🤔 I'll continue trying.
During the week I think my focus will be on jetpack. Sorting out ideas for thrusters....joining together and movement
Also been watching season one of mandalorian again and have idea / question regarding the right bottom ear....thinking of adding a small light/ torch to area where fett has a symbol....not sure if there's a small enough led that'll do the job. Have a few other ideas too 🤔 May have to make a second set  :laugh: if I can make the first ....just thinking of something abit different. For the rf topper a switch between standard and kasts type.

Never had a snail before...yuck..snail on toast  :laugh: bit of cheese and tomato on top  :laugh: did see an interesting doco on zombie snails. Certain type of snail with a parasite  :-[
Never really thought much of anodising before....but more I think about it....🤔 Possibilities, not the bright coloured ugly stuff, just blacks and greys etc
Think I've just got another idea that may help with jetpack  :laugh: :laugh:.....need to write this one down ....stay tuned 👽

Looking at the low right ear being painted silver, this is only the resin piece, I do like the look of it being silver. So if the anodising attempts don't work...I'm happy. Maybe different textured surfaces 🤔 Maybe lightly sandblasted. I did get some aluminium wire to use in the next anodising experiment ....my alligator clips dissolved  ???
Getting a little more done

Need to do a lot of house work tomorrow  ???....maybe after that I'll get abit more accomplished. Have another idea to try on this bit too....just need to try experimenting with electronics more

On which bit Mi’ix?  The tan bit is original resin bit, aluminium hasn’t been touched either
Latest bit on lower ear, need to file smooth, eliminate machine marks

Now have to get back to doing the dishes 😒
Found this while cleaning out anodising set up...bit of progress...if accidental. Not sure about the colour though, I used a frost grey and black, that has a hint of brass to it 🤔
