My first outing with the new iron maiden. This is now my third construction of it and hopefully my last one as well. The whole project started out almost as a joke about a year ago, thinking we could make this giant monstrosity and do it any kind of justice. Well, three versions later, more money then I care to go into, and enough tension, sweat and blood to fill a convention hall, we're done [almost]!
We still have some touch up painting to do, some dusting, and I'd like to craft some underside wheels to it for easier transport. See, the main flaw with the other two was that once they sustained damage [Convention wear'n tear, transport, me being clumsy...etc] and we couldn't repair it. We use to use craft foam, which would sustain irreparable damage. So, in all my wisdom, we crafted the entire thing out of wood. Yes, this is solid wood [with a cardboard exoskeleton!] So it stands 7 1/2 feet tall and weighs a comfortable [haha] 55lbs in total. After carrying that around for 8-12 hours you get a little tired. I look forward to adding wheels to it needless to say. At least it is nearly indestructible! =)
All in all, I am happy we decided to finally make it the way we wanted to a year ago when we started the first design. =^_^=
