  4. thanks everyone and stuart and jos, yes i will try to get some updated pictures online and show some more progress. and i will of course carry on building too. this is gonna be a real gladiator when its finished. i promise that. and because its a competition, even though i have access to automation (laser, cnc and 3dp) it will be 100% handmade :-)
  5. thanks pete, i appreciate it. she is out of danger now and back home. i feel better too knowing she is recovering, now i can get back to the mod. unfortunatley i will not be finished on time but promise to finish it over the next weeks and months. i managed to get some stain on the valerium shades apart from that i also started the wooden strip covering in the front. i found dosme sheap snake leather belts which i am changing to match the theme. am sure they will contrast well when the wood has its proper color. :-)
  6. Hi everyone and thanks to all that like my work. I will post a little update tonight. Unfortunately my wife has been very sick and in hospital so I could not get the mod finished for the deadline in 2 days on the 22nd. I will however continue to post seeing as this case mod will be finished as it deserves, with all the details and functional electro mechanical parts i have planned. So stay tuned and even though its a pity I will not finish it by the 22nd, I promise to keep you entertained with the world of Spartacus. I dont want to hurry rush and blunder, but to get every detail

  11. hi guys, here is another little update to the arena shade and i also cut out the front bay where the eye catcher helmet will be. the shade posts have all been measured and cut to size. they all have supporting wires which you will see what for this evening. i want sagging shade textiles as the look here. the shade poles are all dismountable for transport and slid in vertically at 90°. i also made the first pullyes by contrapting a mini lathe by clamping in my drill. :-) the helmets bay is cut out and the placed on the Ludus balcony in the front which will also be worked on today

I assume that Crassus also had one, who is the Praetor who eventually brought Spartacus down, so I needed them too. The paintjob isnt quite finished yet, but the main form is made. i cut up melted to the right shape and painted some plastic eagles. made a per
  17. @Andy, by the way I wanted to mention this last time too. Many people seem to think that the contest is always over because of this prediction thread. Maybe it shoulkd ba handled some other way when the prediction is over and also made more clear that this has nothing to do with the actual Modding period and worklogs. Otherwise folks take a look in to this site and think oh its over without realising its just the predict and not the final verdict :-)
