    My thoughts are with you both buddy, hope she gets well soon!

    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. :-)



  3. 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 on it as I planned.

    I will of course be taking part in the German Casemod Championship in August too with this mod.

    Update in a few hours.

    Bye, and thanks to all.

  4. hi guys, due to a quite serious incident in the family i have been lagging behind in modding schedules.

    I will get the spartacus pics up by the weekend too.

  5. 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.

  6. hi guys, so after making the roman standards staffs i wanted to get down to something more spartacussy  or thracian slave galdiatorial again.i decided to work on the ey catcher will will be in the front.

    i googled aroung and looked at all the differnet kind of helmets and decided to make my own design. seeing as this mod is like all other mods i make for competitions all 100 handmade i didnt take the 3d printer or papakura or somethiung, i made it myself.

    i used a polystyrene ball as the base of the skull shell and went on from there with hot glue, cardboard, foam, and worbla. just looking at the pictures i found in internet.

    this helmet is a mix of thracian, the sparatcus series helmets and the most probable designs you would find when googling for galdiator helmets.

    i made it so that when painted it looks as if its had afew battles and been beaten around and passed on from each fallen gladiator to the next and having to be patched up every time.

    next post of it will be the final pain tshading job etc..DSCN0166.thumb.JPG.22dab622880b1a6dcb0f3046f1d0d66b.JPGDSCN0168.thumb.JPG.8ad2ce0733cc116ee459d8114904b96c.JPGDSCN0169.thumb.JPG.bb1b104de01943297070aa5863f93d6e.JPGDSCN0171.thumb.JPG.f5a626e0bde3206e3d8d3524d3e9a4fe.JPGDSCN0172.thumb.JPG.c8d5e69bc6808f53c23b0cce503e7c20.JPGDSCN0173.thumb.JPG.6037d23857fad0d6859919d4ce55f051.JPGDSCN0175.thumb.JPG.19587e014a5a9271451b175dc62fd395.JPGDSCN0179.thumb.JPG.e560d50e16ba47478ec7b9781ca6597c.JPGDSCN0181.thumb.JPG.5f50a5faf8d2782c46c33a5aba25c430.JPGDSCN0188.thumb.JPG.46bb638ee9863f09c29c3af00ffa8498.JPGDSCN0191.thumb.JPG.c7e9431f53dd9a75819a7e1854917052.JPGDSCN0192.thumb.JPG.12ca29c401be92fd161a9464cfb6c5d1.JPGDSCN0193.thumb.JPG.6c20d5ed5ee4f5ee1f842d41e0099e52.JPGDSCN0194.thumb.JPG.11277598b3cebd936a52ac44eaf5cd9d.JPGDSCN0195.thumb.JPG.494516eae44f3f97c5bbecdbe7fae13c.JPGDSCN0200.thumb.JPG.0715b5c532a5e01751aa577accccaa0f.JPGDSCN0201.thumb.JPG.e29becaaae9e752880afa1d050fd9c87.JPGDSCN0203.thumb.JPG.768ddd15c0bc6545e0edb4e233fbc434.JPG

  7. Hi guys, its time for another little update, most of teh hardware has arrived, as soon as its complete then i will also püost some hardware goodyies photos.

    another thing i started on in the mean while was the ROMAN STANDARD or STANDARTE. they were the eagle on a pole figure which were foremost when leading the army into battle. 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 perch and they will also have the four letters  SPQR standing for Senatus Populusque Romanus, or in plain english, THE SENATE AND FOLK OF ROME.

    now some pics of its evolution.. :-) more to come



  8. @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 :-)
