I thought of something:Yeah I'm still working on getting smoother edges on my foam builds so hopefully in the future everything can look a little less polygonal. Also, I'm really wanting to get back to work on the tank too, but it's going to have to wait until spring. Tank is currently buried under 5 feet of snow lol
I wouldn't think it would eat through the foam since it's most likely to be a rubber/tar substance. It may not sand at all though, so you'll have to take extra care when you apply it and make sure it's perfectly smooth before it dries. I'm still keen on using flexible drywall spackle as it's sandable easy to work with.I thought of something:
If you're concerned about the seams you can try rubberized roof patch. I got some of it on a pair of gloves last spring and it still won't come off. Its relatively cheap and usually isn't picky about curing conditions.
I'm going to be experimenting with some of the stuff once my bank account recovers from the Christmas season and make a thread of my results. I don't know if the sealant would eat through the foam or something.
I like your armoryUPDATE!!
The metallic purple paint looks really good, but the silver still needs a few coats, as well as the black. Also found out that Walmart has stepped up their LED game, and now offer 2- 12" strip LEDs with a controller to change it to 15 different colors for $25. $5 more than just the basic color strips. Going to add the strips on the bottom to give the ghost a nice underglow effect. I'll still add lights to the front for the guns, and the back of the wings for the boost as well.

My brother sent me a gif of this video. I was proud in a nerdy sort of way that I am in the same group online as "that guy" haha. Pretty amazing work.
You guys probably can't tell, but I'm blushing inside my helmet lolFirst day back at school and my friend runs up and goes "reducted" check this out. He shows me the video, I lose my **** because it's perfect. He then asked if I knew who that was (my friends know I do cosplay and that I know in person at have seen online a lot of cool people)
My response " yeah.... He's also building a full size tank" and their jaws dropped
Love it!!! Awesome little scooter! I have to hand it to you. You have some pretty dam cool one of a kind builds!UPDATE!!
I ran a 405th booth at a local con this past weekend, with arma358 as well. Was able to get suited up and ride the ghost around the parking lot for about 45min in total. Battery does seem to last the full 1 hour as I had hoped, even with it pushing uphill at some parts. Had a friend help shoot a video for me too, here's a link to that:
I see what you mean. Still would be cool to see a full-size one that could be run in parades for spreading the awesome that is the 405th.Only problem with going gas powered is that youre no longer able to have that running at a convention indoors. In order for a vehicle to be inside is to either be electric or to have all the gas lines disconnected and any other source of potential ignition removed. Any on car electronics will need to be able to be plugged in to a wall. Only reason I know this is I know a guy who has to do that with a delorean time machine. He has said he wishes he has one without an engine just to make it easier to go through the fire safety process.
