    Hey folks,
    I don't know if any of you have tried sculpting in Sculpey home bake polymer clay (turns from clay into plastic when heated to 200*F) well I've been irritated with not being able to finish full 12" figure sculpts due to my home oven being very small. So I made this over the weekend:



    It's a heavy duty steel cabinet from Menards hardware store (manufactured by Suncast). Inside I put a swivel head outdoor wall mount halogen lamp (300 watts) from the hardware store for $8. There's just a positive and negative wire connection to deal with on the back to put an extension cord on it. After that you simply plug in! Now I can do sculptures in one piece up to 30" high x 18" x 18"! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    The class is by Chris Walas, who is an avid G-gauge modeler, and also happens to be a movie special-effects whiz..
    His more famous creatures include all the FX for the movie "The Fly" (Jeff Goldblum version)
    and he also worked on the creatures for the movie Gremlins..

    Those are some nice trains and folksy type people on that site! I like the hobo with the big beer belly!

    What is the difference between HO scale trains and G scale? Seems like all they have at the hobby shops I go to is the HO scale stuff but I've never seen (or noticed) the other stuff. One time my uncle devoted a whole room to a scale train set and his matchbox cars he'd collected since childhood. He'd made a whole town in there it was pretty awesome but he never painted up any people or made any himself, only vehicles and buildings.

    maybe you could of taken apart a heater and mod the coils to fit in the case.

    Yes, I was going to jump in with the answer, but those pics are worth a few thousand of my words....
    As you can see, the "G" stands for "Gee, I bet those ain't cheap"

    and H O is for "HOwever, I think I could maybe afford one of them tiny ones"
