Hey guys, I just completed my SOL this morning. It's about 20 inches long.
I started off by assembling four papercraft soccer balls. If any of you are familiar with Pepakura, you'll know what I'm talking about.
I then folded and printed the two large shafts that connect the four spheres(See how I averted that joke?)
Once they were glued together, I brushed the whole thing with polyester fiberglass resin. Afterwards, I did what BBI did. I just took random pieces of model kit parts from various cars and started gluing them to it. I added some wooden dowel rods for the central pipe, a candy machine container for the escape pod hatch, and the radar dish and various other parts come from a Call of Duty block builder set.
The whole thing was then painted over with dark gray Plasti-Dip to lock it all together and give it an even surface. It was then hit with some gray Tamiya primer and speckled with black. The final touch was the little window in front, which has a picture of Mike and the bots, as a reference to the Sci-Fi intro.
