Robots and formula cars

The SNG Experience would had been up this morning but somehow didn’t reach my portable drive even though I made sure it was there before I left the studio last night. I always bring it home to upload, it’s faster. At the studio upload speeds are poor. Now I’ll have to upload it from work so it won’t be here until tonight. 20 minutes to upload at home, 4 hours at work. Sucks.

Got the first Giant head cast from the mold yesterday. Came out very well. Will do the jaw this morning. Then finish it off, make the neck and light him up. I plan to place servos to move the jaw as well.

The slot car body got cast up from the mold it also came out quite well. It’s very tight getting it to fit the chassis but it’s fitting. Chris Wright warned me this might happen but with some drilling out with the old dremel tool it’s fitting and it runs the track without rubbing. Today I’ll get the windshield plug started. Maybe even get a windshield vacuum formed. Good start to new week!

BTW Mary I have been enjoying more the telescope. It’s colliminated and the Orion Nebula is spectacular even from our Port Hueneme backyard. Can’t wait to get to 9 thousand foot and the dark skies!
