Stumbled across this and to be honest it's some of the most amazing home engineering and model building (which I'm not even interested in) that I've ever seen. It's a replica of the motion capture model from RoboCop 2. The attention to detail and effort is staggering and well worth a look if anyone is interested in metalwork etc. He's even got an led screen mounted in the head playing the same sequence that appears in the film. Mods if this is in the wrong forum could you move for me please?

If you like tinkering with tools at home, well worth a look.

awesome. Wish I had those kind of machining skills!

it's the fact he's sat doing it at home with simple tools and not in a workshop. I'm highly impressed.

I think I would rather build a Sauna than build that. It would be a lot less frustrating.

yeah model building isn't exactly something that floats my boat if I'm honest but if he can do work like that with some simple tools it's pretty impressive.

airsoft weapons



Some air rifles that he has built. Talented guy.

Simply amazing. True piece of art. Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to waste a few hours browsing Britmodeller.com. (Sorry ATS!)

That's awesome - just with 3D modelling, you can spend an entire day working on a single piece of geometry and that doesn't even include texture painting. Now to build an entire robot with hundreds of components, each with tens of features like cutouts, bevels and pins, assemble it with all the pieces fitting each other as well as match photographs ...

I hope he can find the time to build a life-size model and have it operated by electric motors.

Definitely impressive. I don't have the patients to do stuff like that.

Me neither not to that degree anyway. Stormcell I hate to imagine what this man could build with the right tools and money. He built that rifle from scratch.
