PostSubject: Meet Mr Sucho! My Scale 1:35 Suchomimus Resin Log   Wed Aug 22, 2012 5:09 pm

Hello everyone :)

This is gonna be a fun thread, well I hope so! cheers lol! Since this is the first resin in my entire life, I also have some questions to pass along, about using Gap Fillers, Putty or say Plumbers Epoxy? Odd looking stuff to me, it's white and it can be used to fill gaps which tyrantqueen very clearly explained me, but all in all this is very new to me so a log like this one may provide me of helpful use for later builds Cool

So as the gap filler goes I bought a Laminat Crack filler, since resins like Laminate is made of a plasticized substance I think it will do well, I went for white coloured gap filler, since it's the most neutral colour I could choose from. The description is dutch but it tells me I can fill gaps of 1mm thick, so I think I should be okay with it, I just wonder how I should use it haha, I thought at first with my fingers and as Tyrantqueen advised me to use water to thin it out and such, still figuring this all out in the end haha oh dear. : Laughing scratch Laughing

So here some pics of how far I got today, didn't do much than just glue his arms, legs, tail and top part of the skull first, just like Tyrantqueen told me to do,I used Loctite SuperGlue, similar to Gorilla SuperGlue:

The following two pictures will show you some hard to reach seams, I could use some help here on how to get my putty in that place and gently spread it out too.

Here the right leg showing it's inner placed seam:

And here the left leg showing a similar thing, only the gap is a bit bigger here:

For me it is very hard to see what I am doing I guess, I can't see 3D, so hereby making certain calculations is extremely hard, on how much I should remove on a certain angle. Anyways I hope I can deal with these seams safely thereby I hope I have not messed it up silent

Any helpful advise and reply would be very welcome thanks! Cool

Awww thank youuuss, btw that Brazilian Mango is real xDDDDDDDDDDDD lol! lol! lol!
The reason I didn't glue is bottom jaw yet, is because I can pain his gums, tongue and teeth much easier this way Wink Another handy tip Tyrantqueen told me, so kind of her hihi I love you cheers I love you
And yeah it has some barbs here and there, I do plan on getting rid of those with sand paper or something similar, unless you people advise me something better? please do :)

I'm really excited to see how it goes! I hope our dino experts can help you getting the correct shapes. With my help I will turn it in something ending in suchus, not a suchonimus, mayby a simosuchus! Laughing alien

I can't help with good advises Tylo because I never glued a resin model but I can tell you it is a beautiful model Cool

I was, well I'm still very tempted to buy the sphenacodon and erythrosuchus drunken

I missed the shunosaurus and it is always in my mind What a Face

Wow!!! What a beautiful model, you've done a great job so far and I can't wait to see the finished figure.

On the hard to reach seam, my suggestion is to use a tool, I use wax sculpting tools, they are small and have a really nice curved sculpting tool that will go right into the tight space and smooth out and remove any excess putty. I am not sure where you would buy wax carving tools, I buy mine from a tool company here in the states called Harbor Freight, but dentists tools have very similar features and could easily be used as a substitute, you can get them from most medical supply houses.

Good luck!

Btw I see those little scraggly bits on the back claws (the correct name for them is "flash") are a casting artefact and it's very normal and common to see them in resin kits. You're supposed to clean them off with soap and water, but I've found this isn't very effective :/
A better technique I think is to get a small pair of pliers (nail clippers would work best) and gently cut as much off as you can until it looks as neat as you can get it flower

I have those too, are they something like this? XD

But I think they might be a bit overkill for this one job. In a pinch, and for this one job, a cocktail stick would work just fine :) Perhaps you could consider buying some metal tools in future, Tylo, if you want to continue doing kits. They'll help out a lot Very Happy

Wowie! them tools they are indeed from a dentist! cheers cheers cheers Very interesting, I will try the Cocktail sticks first, seems like a plan many thanks for the idea, as for obtaining dentist tools here, that is very hard, medical stores won't sell them unfortunately xDDDDDD
But I could ask my dentist or so , hmm many thanks for these tips< i might build more of such resins in my future :)

Many thanks Tyrantqueen I love you lots I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you

Tylo, do you mind if I start a topic of my own build up of the Paleocraft Rex? I'll give you credit for the idea too if you want it Wink

Btw, I guess Mr Sucho is now being retired? Sad

Oh sure please do! cheers I love you cheers I love you cheers I love you cheers Go ahead! I'd be like :) I love you I love you I love you

As for Mr Sucho, I can't continue on him atm, just have too many things up my alley, even that I really want to continue, I keep getting major pain attacks after working on him for not even more than 15 minutes Sad Sad Sad

But in the long run I will try to complete him, even that this is also the last Resin I will be working on, it consumes too much tension and that isn't what I prefer on having, oh well I will leave Resins and sculpting to you, you rock with these things :) I love you

Okay guys here's an update, after all the worrying and such I decided to continue on Me Sucho, so here some pics, he's ready for painting yaay!

This is how I will display them, the Suchomimus can also be seen as a female Spinosaurus, which i think it resembles, and here the male Spinosaurus is grooming the female,even he has his jaws opened :)

Here the right side view

Hey thanks :)
Well as colouration goes I dunno yet either, I always let my mind float off to somewhere until idea's pop up :)

I will do my best with this, because I really want it to work out, only when i get pains I just need a few days rest, the illness I have disables me from some things, oh well I'll just take my time with this, but somehow I think it will work out just right Cool

The figure looks fantastic, the species is also very well chosen! I'm glad TQ found the right way to make you continue with your work. I am really enjoying the figure a lot.

Glad to hear that you persevered with this guy. I like to look at modern reptiles to get ideas for colours, or just use google images for pics.
