More Paper Mâché Models

In the fall of 2013, I created a 2/3 scale model of R2D2. I got the urge to continue with more robots and vehicles in that film series.  Here is (wait for it...) the beginnings of (here it comes...) an (pause for effect...) AT-AT!!! Excited about this one. Will stand about 24" tall. Not sure when I'll get back to him, but off to a good start I think.  Maybe I should have a show sometime with these models.  


Rocket Sled Paper Mâché Model

Getting into building some more paper mâché models.  Here is a futuristic rocket sled.  Need to add the paper mâché still (this is the cardboard under structure), but starting to come together.

Recent Paper Mâché Projects

I haven't posted much this summer. It's been busy. I did manage to work on these two guys over the summer here and there. A 2/3 scale R2D2 and a life sized minion. Happy with how they turned out. I've LOVED paper mâché since I was a kid. Almost always had some project I was working on. Made a lot of paper mâché Millenium Falcons throughout the years. Might have to do another one of those sometime.

My sabbatical is starting soon. Have a large scale animation project I will be working on and also getting back to Capt. Cheeseball, Vol III. Excited for the fall!!!
