Hi i've been looking at all of your great w and g models on this site and you have inspired me to make my own.................
what I want to know is places where you can get eyes to use for the models-or do u have to make them yourself?
also...I would also love to hear other tips on making models to.
thank you.

Most are customs.

Good for eyes! It is being updated!

Apparentley the eyes in the real movie are made from white beads with the holes painted black, though I haven't tried it myself.

oh right, I didnt know that...I will bare that in mind to-thanks u 2 u have been lots of help.

I was also wondering whether the armatures for models are always very expensive or whether people know cheap places where you can buy them or whether you can make them yourself

oh yeah and do you use the same kind of plastiscene that you can get in toy shops or is there a special type you have to use?

sorry for all these questions its just im a total novice and want to know what im doing before I attempt (attempt being the key word lol) to make my models:)

I believe that the best kind of plastiscene to use (At least for animation) is more clay than plastiscene, because it'll hold it's shape more than toy shop plastiscene. However, the kind I want to use is very expensive and is hard to get!

fluffles the poodle Posted: Jan 18th 2009

so do you think as im a beginer I would be better off with using toy shop plasterscene for now

iantimothy Posted: Jan 18th 2009

sammy, what kind do you want to use? plasticine is not very much? and if it's clay, it would dry.

I now use lewis newplast (Nontoxic, 500g), which costs £1.99. It's tougher than normal plastiscene, It has to warm up before you use it, and it holds it shape more. I haven't seen that many colours. I bought it from a local shop.
