    Castle Greyskull under construction

    Hey fellow Eternians Iím new to the forum but been a fan of MOTU since the early 80ís. Recently Iíve decided to build my own Greyskull castle diorama. This thing is scaled to classics, filmation , and vintage styled figures. Iíve used 6Ē diameter pvc pipes for the towers and the top half of the skull is a Halloween candy dish. The one when you reach in and grab the candy and your hand gets grabbed by a boney hand lol. Anyways Iíve included pics so hope yíall like and enjoy!

    I guess you are making some castle tower, right?
    Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
    Let me show you just what I'm made of
    Simple curiosity trying to take a bite of me
    Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

    This looks nice and big!

    Might I suggest that you make replies to one thread that you have started, rather than making new threads for every post? It will make things easier for users, as well as the mods.

    Have a great day.

    Iím doing an infinity mirror to go inside the mouth of the castle using LEDs in my torches to give a flame effect. The infinity mirror will create the look of a long hallway lit with torches. There are lots of ideas for infinity mirrors on YouTube

    Itís really coming together! The bowl you found for the skull face is really perfect, and your work on the teeth bring it alive.
