So that’s how they make this stuff.
seems we’ve got a little off track.
Anyways, before my fellow clattering fannies mention any more higgy quips (and let’s face it, it’s more a matter of ‘when?’ and not ‘if’) I’ll just update any interested parties that I’m aiming to get these ready by the end of the month.
Have you started the tuna key yet ?
Wtf is a tuna key? 😂
the top part you nutter 😁
Ah, the radiator/clock/pocket watch/wind up car key? (That isn’t actually any of those things but they look pretty similar)
Yeah, that’s all taken care of. Just got to finish the brass parts, age the brass, silver the blobs, pour in the resin, assemble, package…..
You make it sound sooooo hard Singe 😂
I’m definitely interested, how big a run will you be making? Sorry if I missed this in the thread.
Well there’s no intention to make it sound like a chore, but doing this stuff is certainly never easy or straightforward.
They’ll be enough for everyone no doubt. When they’re ready I’ll ask for a show of hands.
The aforementioned ‘tuna keys’…..
Like, piano tuna?
I’m currently waiting for some special solution to come in that’ll make the bright brass parts looked aged and screen accurate. Then it’s just a matter of putting things together and waiting for the clear resin in the vials to set.
like the key that you used to open old tuna cans with 😁
Would zat make eet a…. poisson vial? 🇫🇷
No, that would be the key to Higgins pants 😁
This has taken a fishy turn. I cod understand if it was Thunderball, but I'm getting a haddock just wondering how it happened. Just for the halibut, am I the sole one who thinks this? 🧜♂️
Fishy puns literally off the….. scale.
got the right my to gill anyone disrupting my thread with punage so bad it causes the whole forum to… tank. Sure some people are here just to bait others, but I can’t resist a good pun. Fall for it every time, hook, line n sinker.
Just a question, maybe dumb as I know bogs, botty’s, plugs and gaseous emissions are commonplace in prop making. But why did you put them in the bottom of a dry toilet to take that picture.
Because I’m bloody potty.
Final update time. This is pretty much as the final ones will look.
If anyone is interested (including those who’ve already stated an interest) please drop me an email.
Great stuff Singe 😊
Thank you mate 🙏🏻
It great to see you back making props - and that one is superb 🍸
Very very good ! Love it, I'm still so interested !
