build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 Empty A jumpsuit for the driver

Post by laneboysrc on Sat 9 Mar 2013 - 0:47

Things are progressing slow but steady. The car is now more or less finished and is just waiting to receive the driver figure and to be dirtied.

Since I made the steering wheel movable I need the arms of the driver to follow the steering wheel. I first thought of adding hinges to the plastic, but abandoned the idea. I made hinges before for our Dingo and I am not pleased with how it turned out.

Studying how others solved the issue I found that real cloth provides the flexibility to keep the hands on the steering wheel. So I needed to make a suit for my driver.

Before Christmas I acquired a 2nd hand sewing machine from Cash Converter. It was cheap, but turned out to be a lemon. When I cleaned the machine after bringing it home I discovered that there was a cockroach nest inside the foot pedal. I was not amused Evil or Very Mad

Then I couldn't get the machine working for quite a while. It didn't help that I never used a sewing machine before, so at first I thought that I did something wrong. After a while I realised that the machine was not working properly. Luckily after a bit of Googling I found a service manual of a similar machine to the one I have. Last weekend I checked a few things and found that an alignment was out. It was easy to fix and now the machine is finally working as intended. Time to make a suit pirat

I found a jumpsuit pattern for a 1/6 scale G.I. Joe figure on Flickr. Since the XR311 is 1/12 I figured that the pattern would fit if I reduced its size by 50%. I started with the main pieces of the jumpsuit.

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8539950526_6b5ec2f831


First test fit:

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8538843767_790201cef6

The legs fit well, but the upper body was too short. So I cut new pieces of cloth, but this time I increased the upper body area by 1cm. Now it fits well:

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8539950188_088611ee07

After sewing the main parts of the suit together I made one arm.


build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8538843453_03f8649110

It was a good idea to make a hem straight away on the sewing machine. I neglected to do that on the feet and had to do it manually at a later point, which doesn't look as good as the machine stitches.

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8538843259_9b85b15611

Test fitting the arm: looks great! The second arm went smooth as well.

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8539949716_d6c1545298

With the major parts of the suit complete up next was the tedious task of cleaning up all the hems. This had to be done with hand sewing as there is no way to get such small pieces in the machine. I've never sown before, but after watching a few YouTube videos it was a breeze.

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8538842935_e44ba29bda

Test fit: The upper body looks a bit too wide for the small figure due to the shoulders on the suit being too wide. Some adjustment needed... I narrowed the back of the suit a bit and now everything fits better.

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8538842827_87124bc1df

I am very pleased with the outcome, it was a difficult job and my first attempt at sewing.
All in all it took me 5 hours to make this jumpsuit.

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 Empty Anyone know this guy?

Post by laneboysrc on Fri 15 Mar 2013 - 21:48

After having finished the jumpsuit it was time to give the figure some color.

I started with several thin coats of Tamiya flesh. Here is after the first coat. It does not fully cover the primer yet.
build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8559892656_e394abeaf9

While the face is drying it is a good time to paint other parts of the figure, such as the boots. It took in total four layers until the brown covered neatly.
build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8558785241_c0114e189b

Here is the face after three thin coats of flesh. The color is now relatively even and covering well.
build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8558785121_fa964f2fb5

We start with shading the eyes and the area under the cheek bones with a very faint mixture of flesh and blue. The paint was very much thinned out to give just a hint of color.
build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8559892322_014a3fe3f7

The area under the eyes and the nose receive a red-tinted skin color. It turned out a bit too strong as seen here, later I toned it down with a wash of pure flesh color.
build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8558784945_94df15547c

The eyes have been painted white, mixed with a tiny bit of black to ensure they don't look like ghost eyes. The pupils have been painted with brown, as have the eye brows and the moustache. The eye brows are a bit to narrow here, I widened them later.
build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8559892126_4cc50a888d

The upper body, which will be partly visible underneath the jumpsuit, received three layers of blue. After that a thin black wash was applied to highlight the recessed areas and make it look more 3-dimensional.
build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8559892026_a60b1eb4bf

The inner pupils have been painted black and a tiny white reflection dot was painted in for a realistic look. The moustache and eye brows received a bit of grey color for ageing. The chin and cheeks where washed with a very thin mixture of blue, white and black to look like an afternoon-beard.
build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8558784587_ed96bb74b0

Painting the hair was difficult as the figure has very little detail in that area. I started with multiple layers of brown, then added grey and painted thin streaks of black and brown on top to make it look like streaks of hair. Not fantastic, but decent.
build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8558784467_5d64a576c8

The head was mounted to the body with epoxy. When inspected close up it is not so great ...
build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8558784021_00750a6694

... but when viewed from a normal viewing distance it looks quite neat!
The eyes should have been closed a bit as he looks like a bit Shocked. There is always room for improvement.

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 Empty Done. Almost.

Post by laneboysrc on Sat 16 Mar 2013 - 14:01

More progress this morning.

Last night I applied a coat of flat clear to the figure. This morning I dressed the guy up and glued him into the car with epoxy. I glued the hands and arms directly to the steering wheel with medium thickness CA glue. The arms slide in the coat, they are not attached to it.

It looks decent and works great when the steering wheel is moving. I am very chuffed bounce Because of the large front window and the fact that there is no door one can see the moving steering wheel and hands very well. Much better than our Dingo. Effort well spent flower

Post by laneboysrc on Sat 16 Mar 2013 - 20:37

Ok, it's now done. Really. Everything is attached. It is driving. Lights are working. Steering wheel is moving.

Now it needs to get dirty as in its current state it does not look nice: too clinical. I still need to watch a few videos on how to do what I envision, but by end of next week it should be all gunked up and ready for its first video shoot.

Here are a few beauty-shots from the "golden hour" this afternoon:

Weathering has been done. It is very mucky now, maybe a bit more than I intended, but I like it a lot.
I used the Tamiya Weathering Master kit "B" with "soot" and "snow" (to make the flared wheel arches a bit grey-ish like worn plastic). Very easy to use.

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8568965134_459a95792e

I managed to mess up the windshield though as I forgot to mask it off when sealing the car with flat clear.

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8568965030_d42ffef0ec

At the engine at the back the muck is even stronger.

build - LANE Boys RC's Tamiya XR311 build - Page 2 8567867197_e47a13c50c

That's it. Done. Finished. Now I just need time and a nice day at Woodgrove for a running video. Stay tuned!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

In the defence of Marpek, one has to look beyond the green veil to see its beauty:

(the photo was most likely taken under fluorescent light, which has a strong green color component, and the camera enhanced that even more by taking out what little was left of red light. Above is the best I could fix.).

cheers, Werner

I used Adobe Lightroom to do white balance adjustment, plus I had to push the "hue" very much towards red as there is almost no red content in the original image.

cheers, Werner

Hi everyone.

Lovely weather this morning. I've been to Woodgrove to run the car, and make photos and a video.
Here are some shots, more can be seen in the XR311 set on Flickr.
