work in progress...


Here's a crappy cell phone shot of what's about one or two more sittings worth of work away from finished -- a SteamPunked Guitar Hero controller. Goofy, yes. Also, fun, and a really good test piece for that fake wood action that I'm wanting to use later for something else. Anyway, I just wanted to have something up here related to what I've been spending so much time on lately. This weekend or so I'm planning on doing a bunch of photography of other recently completed 1:1 scale projects.

So I built up your SWM Trash Compactor, but wish to use it on a 7x7 tile.

I can't find the ground tile anywheres. Which didja use?

The original distribution pack for that, here:

should have the floor elements in it. I don't have the files handy at the moment, but I started with scans of the floors in this toy:

and modified them pretty heavily in photoshop. Hope that helps

Right; it's built and looks great, I even modded it so the door slides up and down, but I was wanting to know where the outside gray squares with 4-bolted connector plates came from.

I'll link to Photobucket later.

Oh, OK. If you are talking about the gray squares around the compactor, I think what I did (its been a while) was to cut squares out of normal clear hallway floor in photoshop and slide them around like puzzle pieces, and I think I just lightened part of it with the selection tool and levels, or something like that.
