Making a MSE-6 Droid R/C Car body
By Deadline on Jan 21 2011 Category:Vacuum Form

The goal of this project was to buid a MSE-6 mouse droid in time to take to the con.
Ok, Plan B: will be to turn a form in to a shell and then the shell in to an R/C droid for next years con.

Steps

  • Join the yahoo group for MSE-6 mouse droids. Ask around for where to get, buy or order MSE-6 shell. Get no response.
  • Spend seven months building a home vacuum form machine (See how here)
  • Use the pdf plans from yahoo group to build form to build wooden mold. See nice photo gallery below. Invent new math to make the angels work out because plans are not complete or correct.  The mold is about 19 inches. 10.5 inch wheel base for standard R/C car components. NOTE: These are scaled! Not full size.  About 86%. If there is demand for Full 1 to 1 scale then I might build a second set of molds.
  • Use new home Vacuum Forming machine to make MSE6 shell on hand built molds. See cool vacuum pull videos below.

Looking for Greeblies and Side panles!
Will trade shells for them. Contack me if interested.
