Mike over at Slobots.com just finished a new SLOBOT commission featuring an ocean theme. The base figure is a Hasbro Mighty Mugg. The legs, arms, and surfboard (technically a Prone Paddleboard) were all scratch builds. The surfboard was carved and sanded into shape with foam and then coated with 3 coats per side of Smooth On SmoothCast 300 Resin, sanded smooth, and painted. Mike also molded and cast the hands with Smooth On Mold Star 15 and Smoothcast 300. The finished robot stands about 12″ tall with the surfboard.
