i started thinking about small props i could make and i came up with the brain chip from terminator 2.
So here is my instructables on how to make a T2 brain chip.
Step 1: Research images
Step 2: Materials and tools.
-1mm brass tube\bar
-glass dome (optional)
-lighter or candle
Step 3: Drawing up plans and cutting.
the width of the chip i worked out to be roughly 25mm and the length is roughly 65mm.
scaling some pictures to this size showed that the total thickness was around 6mm thick.
Then cut the parts parts out of 2mm thick plastic on a laser cutter.
Step 4: Construction and priming.
i know that the clear version looks a little shoddy but when its painted up it looks a lot better.
I made two different versions of the brain chip, the damaged chip that they steal from Cyberdyne, and one complete clean version.
i sprayed the chips with a plastic primer.
i made two little port discs, i tried to make them look like the port where the chips are pulled from inside the terminators head.
i painted them with plastic primer as well.
Step 5: Painting.
once all the paint has dried i mixed up two different colours of rusty red\brown and painted the darker of the two onto the damaged chip and the lighter, more red, colour onto the complete chip.
