T800 Terminator

November 4, 2021 · in Sci-fi · · 9 · 2.1K

This model is a 1:9 scale diorama inspired by one of the first scenes from the classic ' 2' film.

The model is the old Halycon kit which i picked up off Ebay. The base is scratch built using insulation foam. The skulls were 3D printed and the debris on the base was made by mixing plaster of Paris with various grey and blue paints and then spreading it out thinly on a plastic sheet and breaking it up once dry. I did a few modifications to the arms and legs to give the T800 a more interesting/dynamic pose but other than that it is built pretty much out of the box. The paint scheme for the terminator used Alclad Chrome over a gloss black base with a few pin washes of dilute black to bring out some of the recessed details. The pulse rifle was painted with metallic pigments.

  4. Really nice, Paul (@paulsutt542). The metal finish is perfect for this beast, and your base is very cool.

  5. James Cameron would hire you as a modelmaker, if they still hired 3D modelmakers in Hollywood.

    Nice work on this.
