Substitute gypsy head.
« on: August 26, 2017, 12:02:24 PM »
While i'm still 6 weeks away from earning servo, I was thinking, what is the best substitute for a gypsy head. As in obtainable, and affordable. Also if i get this, it would be temporary until the lucky day i find the gm infant love seat, or when bob's reproductions are finished.

I don't really know of a good, substitute Gypsy head. Fastbilly1 used a interesting substitute seat. Message him and ask what he used. I have also heard of people using foam and other things to build the shape of the seat. Also, if you don't want to spend the money on a real Eveready, a good substitute for the lantern would be this. This is the same kind used in season 11. It's called a "RAYOVAC-EFL6V-BA"

I was going to use the new eye anyway since I prefer it. Plus rebecca hanson is my favorite gypsy.

keep in mind this is a temporary gypsy, so it won't be the best.

Also i kept some of the seat belt pieces, so i might make use of those for extra details. Only problem, where the hell am i gonna put her.

Don't worry, Richard Basehart will watch over you through the trial and error of building ol' Gypsum. ;)

Well good news, the head and jaw are ready to be trimmed, painted, and sanded. Also the seat is now the lower jaw, do to the back size. Already found what i'm gonna use for the knob and painted that flat black. The new upper jaw, is a heavily cutted plastic container. My dad just needs to do something for the rim things next to the eye. I might think of a way, to do the season 11 someday.

Is that what I think it is? A garbage truck full of Century Seats? If only they knew...

I would prime it white first, then use a generic purple as a base coat. Then use the testors.
