Your head is too large, You will have problems with the arms when going all the way up when the head is looking forward. Revise your head so that at 45 degrees it is not wider than the chest. <br>Good luck! <br>
<em>Your head is too large</em><br> <br> It makes it hard to find hats.<br> <br> Also - I've added a small head version --- much easier to work with.
Yup! - I also had to cut the 'hands' off because they hit the wheels. I'm thinking about moving the arms away from the body, but it adds pieces.
I like the big head. I think its fun to watch his head just miss his arms.
Very nice. I think I could do this!<br><br>You should add some bumperstickers and so forth, like &quot;ilpug&quot; said.
Cool to see you on Kickstarter. To bad we don't have a really good kickstarter-like site in Europe! It was really fun to see also my own project on the screenshot you posted on kickstarter :)
Just got approved as a KickStart project - - any thoughts?
Great job!
You have a cute project, but why not take it to the next level?<br><br>If you sand out the paint between coats it will start to look like metal, then add some little brass (round head ) brads to the parameter of his head and body to look like rivets, you could paint after &quot;riveting&quot; or before depending on how much you want them to stand out.<br><br>If you want some ideas for the &quot;dress up&quot; aspect of your project, try Robot Island dot com<br><br>Since you have a drill press and some Forstner bits maybe you could mortise a slot for his mouth then add a spring in the slot, your local electronics stone will have some dome lights in a small size for eyes, or you could use plain old flash light bulbs like they did in the 50's tin robots.<br><br>The reason I'm saying this stuff is because when you add the embellishments the project becomes an enjoyable scavenger hunt, the Salvation Army, Goodwill, and second hand shops contain tons of cute little things that can be repurposed.<br><br>Thank's for posting it alot of work to document such a project, sorry if I come off preachie, I am a total tin robot freak I own at least 50 of them....
Thanks! - Robot Island is awesome. I have 'space robot'.
Wendel needs his own TV talk show - what a cutie!
Looks Great! It's all about having fun and leaning. Well, atleast for me.<br>
Classic Robot. He could use a few decals. Great simple design. <br><br>
Wendell is so cute, I love it!
I have to second that. It does have a look about it.
