I am going to suggest Big Trouble in Little China! (What can I say, it is one of my guilty pleasure movies): First installment, Lo Pan! I am still in the process of shading and tweaking but he came together well enough that I thought I would show him and ask for input.
If I can finish him early who should I do next? Egg Shen, The Three Storms (basket headed guys), or Jack Burton?
So I have a couple of questions for those interested... How tall (in scale) should Lo-pan be given that he is a "10 foot tall road block" and how much lightning is too much to put on the model of Lightning?
Test builds of Lo pan at a few different sizes and my early attempts at a lightning effect on Lightning:

I like Storm without the pillar of lightning beside him. As for Lo-pan, I think "10' tall" is Jack Burton exaggerating. Even if he is especially tall (SO temped to put in the DVD . . . No, things to do today) he never appears "large" I mean his shoulders don't get wide in proportion to his height. I would maybe stretch him below the waist a bit but mostly I would leave him on the normal side.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

Well, I was supposed to go winter cabin camping with the cub scouts this weekend but since I am fighting some bug I am on the couch instead. The cub's loss (at least I like to think) is VK's gain. I'm not sure if there might be copyright issues putting this in the hoard, but thought I would post it here first anyway.
Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
