Humble Beginnings...

I don't normally get to work on my hobby stuff everyday, too much going on in real life, but this weekend, I did squeeze a bit here and there.

First, is the very cool Demo-bot for the Alpha Forge game...only partially assembled here, but the cleaning of each part (moldlines, filing) does take a while...

He is missing his head, the other arm, some great big roboty hands, and some shielding that goes by each shoulder...He'll get them soon.

Also, and this doesn't look like much, I decided to scratchbuild a "dropship" for the little motley crew I am assembling. Basically, the picture below is just the humble beginnings. Just two pieces of styrofoam inserts, one from a computer box, the other from a printer maintenence kit.
I stuck these together with some 'gorilla glue'. My goal is to build this strictly with junk and things I find, or already have. So far the money total is zero. Let's see if I can keep it that way.
