BOOKER CATCH ! Bioshock Infinite Whistler (Songbird flute)

I really loved playing Bioshock Infinite, and especially loved the weapons and item designs in the game. This is my 3rd build from the series, the Whistler !

There was very little reference images out there, so it was tough to see how this thing would go together. I started with some of the basic shapes in a mock up and went from there.

I was pretty proud of some of the round parts, no laser cutting here ! All done by hand with sand paper.

I used PEX tubing for the pipes

I added some details and drew a picture of Goku !

A few more details, paint, and weathering, along with sculpting the bird medallion and I had a finished Whistler !

Iron Spawn Helmet

This is a work in progress on my Iron Man- Spawn helmet crossover project. It's not finished, but I wanted to share what I have as this is taking forever!

I started off with an unfinished Iron Man Helmet project that needed help. It was made from a pepakura base of a Sharkmark file.

After looking at a bunch of Spawn faces on Google, I free handed a design for the "mask", Then cut some thin strips of Sintra to make the outline.
It was then filled in with sintra scraps, both to fill in the void, and to maintain the same depth.

It was all filled in with Bondo !
I cut out the Spawn symbol from some styrene
....and put them on some custom ear pucks I made

After tons and tons of sanding, I finally got the basecoat of black paint on, and masked it off for the white

After paint, I put in some green led's and experimented with teeth in the jaw and BLAM ! .... Iron Spawn !
