Finished Martian War Machine

I finished this up yesterday finally....

The martian hand is made from Sculpee baking clay, then airbrushed with Autoaire on it and the base itself. I added a few LED's under the hand to give a glowing light affect...

Paint is Autoaire Pearl Copper, with 6 coats of House of Kolors Kosmic Klear, with green pearl and rainbow flake powder added to the mix. It's really stunning in the sunlight.

Many thanks to Randy at VoodooFx for promoting this build. You can see how it was all wired in the lighting section of this forum. The light kit works great!

fantastic! love the finish! absolutely adore the base!

Reminds me when I got to meet George Pal -- he was talking to a college class and I somehow got wind of it and, even though I was only 14 or 15 at the time, I managed to get into the presentation class he was at. At end of his talk I asked him how he made Martian's hands/fingers open and close like they did, and he said the answer was quite simple - they used cables just like the ones on the brakes on my bike. He was very sincere and happy to chat for a few minutes with a 14-year old sci fi geek.
