Tom Servo Engine Block Unpainted
« on: January 19, 2016, 09:00:27 PM »
For those of you interested here for the first time ever are some photos of the original Tom Servo engine block unpainted. I finally spent some time carefully stripping off all the old paint and getting it cleaned up.

With the paint off many of the details are much sharper. The cast copy that everyone has been using was made from the painted engine block. When I get a chance I'll be making a new casting of this naked engine block. The only problem is that young man who originally had it cut it up pretty good to fit on the barrel. It's going to take a lot of careful reconstruction to make it whole again.

Also a lot of chips and cracks under the paint and one of the exhaust ports had been broken off and glued back on at some point.

No new info about the toy maker hiding under any of the paint so that part still remains a mystery.  :-\

WOW! It's so sad that that guy threw away that car and didn't get any pictures >:(

Pretty rad. Can't wait for the new mold.

Between this and the hand discovery, ol' Servo is feeling all new and exciting.
