Hi all T-800 fans, I’m starting to seriously plan my Model 101 scratch skull build!
The idea will be to 3D-print the skull and then fix up the print’s imperfections with bondo/plaster/clay and spent a lot of time fixing the details by hand.
I acquired this 3D model where the author claims it’s base is a 3D scan of the original “Stan Winston Replica”. Being a scan, there’s a lot of asymmetry/warpage (which I kind of like) and really bad details on the greebles. I like the idea of using a scanned object versus a fully 3D-sculpted author interpretation because it feels like it has a bit more movie lineage. If I print this there will be a lot of fixing up!
What do you guys think of the model below and how it compares to the endos in T1/T2?
I realize that even the real movie props varied from shot to shot.. so at some point I just need to roll with it and not obsess too much with authenticity. I’ve read a lot of RPF posts so no need to get into too much detail with screen cap comparisions etc…I just wanted to get some quick opinions from you guys the pros
Was thinking I might even make it a bit oversized so it’s got a bit more presence on display. I’m going to modify and slice up the model in probably 3-4 sections so it can print with minimal supports. Also planning to document all build progress on here. Let me know what you guys think!
