    hmm, not sure what area you might be talking about, but no, the only removable magnetic pieces will be on the tower walls, covering up the 2 entrances to the rooms you see.
    glad you like it! thank you.

    I was wondering about the area of the base of the tower on the right bottom of the pic... it's probably just an optical illusion, but it looked like maybe that was a hidden removable piece.

    friggin amazing! I'm coating my frame with a papier mache type coating I'll more than likely still use sculpy as well, but the papier mache is cheap and helps me flesh it out and solidify it without heat.

    I thought my skull was bigger than yours but now I'm not so sure! can't wait for more pics it keeps me motivated!!

    yeah its going to be pretty insane. we bought an 800.00 ez spray jr ( dont know why they call it JR, its huge.) spray gun.

    so we will be able to shoot plastic into the mold, will cut the curing time down to less than half of what it would of ben had we been brushing in the plastic.

    very excited to use the gun!

    i can imagine.
    im thinking part of it was he didnt realize what a huge project it was. and it must have become overwhelming.

    Hi Bishart! Loving the work so far...

    I have one question: It is possible to cast clear plastic with that spray gun you´re gonna use?

    thank you!
    i dont believe so. smooth-on only really sells one plastic meant for the gun. it would be possible to brush in clear plastic. but it would take a long time.

    what were you thinking? you want a clear one?

    I think in the minicomics the castle appeared there where it was needed.
    So a half phasing one (like the predator figures) would be pretty awesome.

    Look for my designs on Deviant art. I am under Octobersdream. Will do commissions of anything, original to recreating any older line. Also needing POP stuff and some MoTU things aswell.

    Thanks for the aswer... No just wondering about it. I´m working in a Fright Zone playset and wanted to know if that could be possible because i want to cast it in red clear plastic, but i will do it as you mentioned, with brush.

    Can´t wait to see the first cast
