Day 3 - finished sanding and painting the head (minus the side guns), and although I like the rough look of the paint job (I added a silver coat underneath so that I could show wear and tear), I am not at all pleased with the finer detailed lines. It was my first time carving lines in putty, so I pretty much fucked it all up.
Then attempted to give it an #allischalmers look by adding grime (black paint). I dont know. Spent a lot of time on this so far (40 straight hrs of #3dprinting alone). Do I start over or not? Will think on it.
And yes, that is a #vf1s head holding the screen up. Will continue work on that one when I finish the current build.
Also.. tempted to modify the original design and add rocket launchers along side the laser guns. The downside is that I might accidentally launch them indoors. That could be bad.
