Well, can't claim he's finished - couldn't get the LEDs I wanted and ran out of time & glue but I got this far




All sorts of bits to improve on it but today's the deadline so




The basic idea seems sound enough - I've just got to sort out the translucency of the 'flames' (and get some 3mm superbright LEDs for the skull and the headlights) and before I can do that I've got to get some more glue.


I tried :cheers

This is truly awesome. I've always been a big fan of "If you want to make a name for yourself you need to hunt big game."  I did after earn a custom title in an objective maker contest. (Go find Gooba'z Tools)


But I digress.


Build: 7. I can't tell if it textured paint or just your signature sculpt style. I like, but its got that chunky feel to it.

Paint:  Gave this a scratch because you stated it wasn't finished and it looks it. Hard to tell everything thats going.

Likeness: 10 It's dead on. What's that? Oh Ghostrider.

Creativity: 10 you had and idea, a high level idea. (I'd interested in seeing WIP) and you executed it. Well done.


One gripe is the chain whip. I didn't make off for not having that but it would have been a great touch.


Thanks for participating :thumbs

Cheers Zag, I went with the idea of an orky GhostRider having to be a bit chunkier than an 'oomie one and the forks had to be sculpted up around a couple of bits of brazing rod (partly for strength but also as part of the circuit to get power down to the front wheel LED) - gotta parts list pik but the build was very fiddly with all the build hanging together off bits of wire for the most part and not at all photogenic.




Hopefully be able to order some slightly more suitable LEDs (the ones I had to use were intended for use in a garden) and I was getting better and better at the flames just as I ran out of glue :bang

I will be having another go at it with a slightly better idea of the problems to avoid - and he will be getting a chain :thumbs
