How much do I have to pay someone?

Post by kramer70 on Sun May 08, 2016 7:06 am

so I never got any of my parts from veteran. This includes my Rambo head and torso. So I ask you board members that have one. How much would you sell one to me? I also ordered Dutch and Billy but really want Rambo.

Only Cyko has extra stuff. I am after the Dutch combo. He has been busy with life but said to check what can he do this week.

I got a full set of stuff from Veteran. I purchased some casting supplies today. I have never cast before, so this could end in utter failure. However, if I am able to get these parts cast, I will likely offer them for the same $5 Veteran did to the group here.
I will post here with updates.
Again, I have never cast before, so this could end poorly. But I will give it my best shot.
My understanding is that Cyko has Cool Breeze heads and torsos as well as Rambo heads. I will likely not cast those unless there is still demand for them after he gets them sent to those in need.

Success!!  I mangled this first mold a little pulling the original out, just around the swivel at the base, causing a little more flash than I would have liked.  But, I've done four casts so far, and other than a minor air bubble around the neck line on a couple, they've turned out great.
The next item, the Big Lob head mold, is curing as we speak... uhhhh, type.

I will keep everyone posted on how the remaining casting process goes.  I will do my best to see that everyone FINALLY gets a chance to get these casts in hand.

So, my goal:

As stated above, I'd like to get all members here, as well as other former Project ARAH members who paid in, whatever casts they are interested in for $5 per head/torso set.
For any casts leftover, I would offer them on eBay and other Joes sites for a little higher price (maybe $10?). The extra $$$ raised would be used to offset some or all of the cost of a new sculpt from Krexx. Maybe we'd offset some of Bob's cost input, maybe we'd vote on a new set. We'll work out the details later.

I just want to make sure the general consensus here is that everyone is comfortable with the second step above. These parts belong to everyone who paid into P:ARAH, yes? I don't want to step on any toes here. I would hope that we could raise some more $$$ for Krexx, while at the same time raising awareness in the Joe community of OWN's existence and what we're trying to do by offering any extra parts elsewhere. Comments? Opinions? Insults?

I like your idea. Any extra money should give us a new piece Smile

"Knock, knock!"
"There's something out there waiting for us, and it ain't no man."



I'm having problems with small chin air bubbles with both of these.  (Originals are on the left.)  I don't know if the problem is in the molds themselves, or with the casts.  Hopefully everyone is OK with minor imperfections like this that a little Sculpey or green stuff will fix.

Head molds for both he and Cool Breeze are curing as we speak.  So, assuming both those molds turn out OK, all the head molds will be done.

This week I need to work on torso molds.  I did a practice on Billy (don't know why I picked such a hard one with that knife) and, well, I got some good learning in.  I need to redo his torso mold, but I'm thinking I'm going to do the swivel-head beret trooper's torso first as it might be a bit easier.  Torsos are definitely more complicated than heads.

I also have Caucasian and African American skin dye for the resin coming in a day or two.  Figured we might as well get these done in some good skin tones so we don't have to paint them, right?  Smile  Once the dye is here, I hope to get a ton of heads cast this week.

Man you are on top of this. Very impressed. Don't feel like you have to cast them in skin tone colors. Speaking only for myself I will paint them regardless, due to color matching the arms I will use. I guess it's better to have a undercolor close to skin tone in case of joint paint chipping.

Sounds good. I will likely have a mix of dyed and undyed available.

Cant wait to get some. They would be better in the proper skin tone if it is available for you. Thank you for helping us.

Last update for heads. All head molds are done, and I have at least one finished test cast of each head.
Chin bubbles continue to plague Dutch as well as the newly-completed Rambo and Cool Breeze. Luckily, putting a dab of slightly cured resin in the bubble holes largely fixes the problem.
Two minor issues with the Rambo and Cool Breeze heads. They each have tiny pieces that my skills (and probably lack of a pressure pot) can't get. Rambo's bandana cuts off where it should hang down past his hair (this wouldn't be noticeable if you didn't know to look for it). And Cool Breeze's hat brim is largely missing from his casts. But, this was a problem even for Veteran, and he used a pressure pot. So, if you're getting a Cool Breeze, expect that you'll have to sculpt a hat brim in place.
The first half of the torso mold for the swivel-head beret trooper is curing now. I'll get the second half done tomorrow night, or such is the plan.
As you can see, the skin tone dye came today too, so I've been playing with different shades.
If anyone only wants heads and no torsos, feel free to drop me a line. Heads are $2.50 for everyone here on OWN. Torso and head pairs will be $5.
Otherwise torsos will, hopefully, be coming in the next few weeks, subject to how their casting goes.

Consider your order placed, but I won't be taking any money until items are ready to go.

First torso mold is done and tested.
The mold is good.  Not perfect, but good.  I doubt the screw hole will work, although I have purchased maybe two torso casts where the screw hole actually worked.  The original torsos received from Veteran had screw hole issues too.
I'm finding I need more practice casting torso pieces.  Literally half of those I've poured have been bad.  The two complete torsos you see here are the only good ones so far.  That's hopefully just due to my skills at this point.
Next torso mold will be Rambo.
My goal will be to get Rambo, Dutch, and Billy torso molds done by Memorial Day.

Outstanding results! I'm sorry that I haven't been able to get extra V parts out to people. Work has been tough this month. I'm glad Forcefull1 is enthusiastic about this project!
