Castle Grayskull Weapons Room
Starting a new commission piece, this will be a weapons room within Castle Grayskull, scaled to Mattels 80’s He-man and the Masters of the Universe range.
This piece will be similar to one I built for myself but longer to accommodate more figures and even Battle Cat as demonstrated.
Building the scene
This piece is made from foam insulation board, the base, walls and the steps I have used 10 mm foam board.
After speaking with my client, 20″was too long to for into his deltof. I’ve taken 6″ off the base and back wall.
The aim is to try and make this as close to the filmnation version of the 80’s, one of the things I have found difficult is trying to replicate the floor. After going on a MOTU DVD binge I settled on a floor pattern I saw of the turret floor with the Talon Fighter parked on it.
Stone slabs scored, time to start on the walls.
Brick work and windows cut and scored into the foam.
Drawing upon inspiration from the 80’s MOTU cartoon for the walls, cutting a piece of 6mm foam to create alcoves for the long wall. With alcoves cut and sanded, the sheet is then glued using PVA glue on too of the first sheet. Once this is dry, I will start adding the detail.
