Title: Tom servo build.
Post by: Dr.cgad on October 11, 2017, 04:49:09 PM
The kit came in, but does anyone have a visual guide, since bob's guide does not have as many images as crow.

but unfortunately dad put the t connector in too deep, so like gypsy, the mouth won't open as wide as it should. But i'm going to try to extend the hole in the front of the connector a little bit, to fix that.

Enjoy the build!  Tom is a fun project, and not super complicated.  Seeing it all come together is really awesome, and it makes the process even more fun!  Enjoy it while it lasts.  ;D

I not only plan on finishing servo this month, but i also plan on doing a play-through of the fractured but whole, as well as super Mario Odyssey when it comes out next week.

That was super fast.  I am impressed.  The last Servo I built took atleast twice as long.  The only thing I do differently is if I get a Bob kit is paint the white parts white and the black parts black.  Its just me but it cuts the glean.  Well that and the entire bot gets a coat or two of fixative...

Just in time for Servo to be your one up girl!

i was thinking of bringing servo to my grandmother's house this friday, but my crazy dog, po-po, is coming, and so is my switch with a copy of super mario odyssey, so risk of both damage, and more stuff to carry.

I brought tom to my best friend's birthday party, and his dad had watched mst3k back in the 90's and was impressed by my tom servo, despite being crudely put together. Also my friend took a picture to show to another friend of his.

I plan on touching up tom this weekend, as he only has one coat of ruby red, and my dad missed a few spots with the silver. Although the barrel is more or less ok.

Might have to order new arms though, since the right one got bent a little, when attaching it, and it is also slightly loose.

Botbuilders has always been slow, unless there are new developments.

Update: Applied 2nd coat of metal flake red, to the head, and touched up the silver bits. Also fixed the head turning problem, as there was a scrap piece of plastic on the shoulder that was sticking up, so i trimmed that off and now it no longer squeaks when it turns.

Post by: Dr.cgad on November 10, 2017, 02:19:16 PM
also need to eventually order new arms, as the current ones, got bent when the hands were attached.

Finally painted the inside of the mouth. And since i recently got hooked to Voltron:legendary defender, I might just riff it for fun.
