BORED!

Postby wags83 » Wed Nov 07, 2012 9:24 pm

At work. It's been super slow lately. And nobody is posting on here! I'm not actually supposed to be surfing the internet like this, but I'm pretty BA. Anybody got anything entertaining?

I spent about 3 hours working on a pepakura (think oragami but with glue) on this.

I am maybe halfway done. It's 32 pages in total. SO MUCH WORK! I quit for the night and I fear it will be hard to pick it back up again.

Mine won't look that clean. I also only printed black/white. If I get it together and I'm happy with it I might coat it with spray bondo then spray paint

Now I can't even research cars in my down time like I used to. Guess I'll just hang out on forums.

Should have it done next week. Will use PVC for the guns in place of paper. Then want to try coating the whole thing in spray plexi-dip

Thanks. This has taken much longer than I thought it would. If I sat down and did it with no distractions I could have done it in an evening. But I do it while watching TV on my little tv dinner tray so my work conditions are not optimal.

Bored again. It's slow for the first time in a while and time is just dragging on. Only 47 minutes until my lunch break.

Better be a random orbital sander...
And quitting Radioshack fully or just taken off the schedule until the offseason again?

That's hot. You're going to get into so many hard to reach places with that. Progress pics of the project are a must
