Horseshoe v2

LegDetails05

All finished with Satin White when I realised that the inside surfaces where the buttons and the little strut go are actually silver metal. Out comes the aluminium tape.

Shoulder Hubs

Gave the shoulder hubs a coat of primer before applying filler to the outside. These are based on the metal parts design but 3D printed. Once the outside is smooth I’ll cover it with aluminium tape to make it nice and shiny.

Horseshoe v2

After my first 3D printed horseshoe started bending in the dryer cabinet after a coat of primer, I printed a new one for the right shoulder/leg. Here is a photo of┬áthe raw bits straight out of the 3D printer. I started with glueing them together with EMA plastic weld. It takes quite a while to fully cure but once finished it’s a pretty rigid connection. Next is primer and filler.
