Pretty Dry Stuff:

Yeah, I know this is pretty dry stuff, especially when I'm not even sure the [email protected] thing will even work out or even if I got the scale right but getting there is half the fun as the saying goes.

I know now the length of the coils are more than twice as long as I need per cannon so I may be able to make two of these

And here I was thinking, "Thank God I only have to make one............."

One Down Three To Go:

I've got four sides to do and each is at a different stage of completion

With the four channels done I move to the reinforcing strip

And finally to the curved base for the coils.............

Can Imperators have two plasma coil weapons?

You Get Two:

Due to a bit of luck and some overzealousness I made this coil core literally twice as long as it needed to be so I now have the option of building two of these extremely futuristic weapons.

The problem is; Are they too slick looking for my lumbering Imperator?

Also the gun mount I made may be too crude for the Sunburst Plasma Blaster....... Does anyone else think that name is more appropo for a 1960s bubblegum jawbreaker?

Anyway I've managed to wrap the first strand of coil material around the core and am letting it dry overnight before installing all the almost one hundred strands for these two Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters..whatever

What are you using for the coil? I believe that weapon is also categorised as a plasma annihilator if that rolls off the tongue better for you

Give a Hand:

Yesterday evening I got tired of waiting for material for the Plasma Blaster so I decided to work on the Claw.

By this morning I got a fairly good start.

Still???? I'm positively lethargic!

Hands, Touching Hands, Reaching Out, Touching Me, Touching You!

You have to imagine these skeletal fingers cut down to proper diameters but for now we are going for size and flexibility.

https://i.imgur.com/lZteifU.jpg


I modeled my own hand for size

https://i.imgur.com/BnEPqx1.jpg


The first joint indicated by the axles will be where the finger joins the palm so three joints all together to the fingertips except for the thumb which will have two.

https://i.imgur.com/UqVfGp0.jpg


I may make the thumb eventually capable of crossing the palm but not for now.

The hand of the omnisiah himself. As always impressive stuff, I take it the hand will be able to articulate and not merely have fixed position

Subtlest Difference:

You can see with this subtle improvement that the grip will be more humanoid and organic (gratuitous remarks at this point are inevitable I suppose) 🙄
