Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 21, 2022 by getbent57

Have finished another 3D print and paint project.  It is a Mouser > here over at Printables.com.   If you are not sure where this is from, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, cartoon show.  Thought it was super cool and am a big Turtles fan.  Think it turned out pretty good.  You can see for yourself in the picture below.

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2022 by getbent57

After many weeks and lots of blog posts about this Robocop statue, > here at Printables.com.   Have now finished painting it.  Am very happy with how it turned out.  This is by far the biggest model I have printed and painted.  You can see a picture of it below.  Took my time with the painting part.  Only had to do a few small touch-ups where I missed or were the brush touched the wrong spots.   Have started work on some other projects.  Will talk about those in future posts.

Ghost Support Free Remix

Ghost_Support_Free_RemixFound another awesome model that I am printing from Printables.com.   It is this > here, Ghost Support Free Remix.  Was randomly looking at the models in the seasonal designs section under Halloween.  While I am not a Halloween fan thought this was a super cool model.  It kind of looks like it should be in the Lord of the Rings movies.  Scaled the model up by 10% and lowered the infill amount.  Keeping my fingers crossed it turns out ok.  Will be back with an update.

[Update] This turned out amazing.  You can see for yourself below.  Not going to paint this, think it looks cool untouched.

Have finished working on the gCreate Official Rocket Ship 3D model.  Am very happy with how it turned out.  In my last post taking about this.  Was painting the flame part of the model orange.  However that was looking every good with the cheap paint I was using.  So went with some red and that looked better to me.  You can see it for yourself in the picture below.  Did print this model scaled down by 50%.  May be at some point will make it full scale.

Merry Boxing Day 2021

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , on December 26, 2021 by getbent57

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas.  We had a nice quit one.  Just like last year cooked the turkey breast with olive oil and it turned out amazing.  Didn’t making my homemade stuffing.  Went with Stove Top.  It is better than I though it would be.  However did have homemade rolls from a local bakery, which were really good.  For tonight we are having the traditional hot turkey sandwiches.

 

  

Christmas Tree 2021

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 5, 2021 by getbent57

It has been the rule in the house of a very long time that the first Sunday in December (which is today December 5, 2021) we put the tree up.  This year remember buy all new sets of lights.  Got those back in November.  These new ones do make a difference, much brighter.  Have put up this tree and the past ones for so many years it doesn’t take long.  Like last year didn’t put as many ornaments on.  Think it turned out good.

PLA Filament From Filaments.ca

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 10, 2021 by getbent57

Took me about a month but got around to trying the PLA filament I ordered from Filaments.ca.  Found a cool low poly Hulk model over at youmagine.com > here.  It seemed easy to print and simple to paint.  Which I will do at some point.  Scaled the model down at first just to see who well it would turn out.   In which it did.  So, printed it again, just much bigger.  It took about 19 hours and 25 mins.  It looks amazing.  As for the PLA filament it is this one here.  (Sadly, sold out as of typing this November 7, 2021).

More Painting A 3D Model

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 11, 2021 by getbent57

Once again talking about painting 3D prints that I made with the Elegoo Neptune 2.  This time it is for a Batman model.  There is a really cool looking one over on Thingiverse, this one > here.  Very simple looking but with lot of detail in the cape.  Wanted to print this one besides looking cool.  It would be easy to paint.  Once I had it primed in grey.  Did two coats of black and a bit of white for the eyes.  After that spayed on some clear coat.  Think it turned out good.  But sadly Batman lost a battle with gravity and broke an ear.

New Motorcycle Helmet

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2021 by getbent57

LS2_Stream_HelmetHave talked about it long enough.  Finely got around to get myself a new motorcycle helmet today (June 7, 2021).  The shop is now open to let customers in.  They didn’t have a big selection of different colours, 90% were black.  Was hoping to get one that stood out a bit so I will be less likely to be run over.  Tried on six different full face helmets.  A few didn’t fit right, too tight or loose.  Another I couldn’t get my glasses on.  Then a guy pointed to one that has a flip down sun visor built in.  Tired it and it fit great.  That is the one I bought.  It is the LS2 Stream, in matte black.  This would be my third helmet and think it might to the best one.  Time will tell once I get so use our of it.

First Ride Of 2021

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 5, 2021 by getbent57

2006-xt225-usa-dpbmc-3.jpgAm late getting to my first ride of the year (2021) on my 2006 Yamaha XT 225.  Most years have gotten going in May.  Not so much this year for a few reasons.  The weather was part of it.  But the main reason is I need a new helmet.  However everything was closed so I couldn’t get one.  That being said.  It is way to nice out now so couldn’t wait any longer.  Took  a good look over it and checked the tire presser.   The tires themselves are bran new last year.  But the battery in and it fired up on the second push of the button.  Went for a quick ride to see if everything felt right.  Which it did.   Going to start taking it to work.  Things now are starting to open up so hopefully I can get a new helmet this week coming.
