Hey Guys,

I have been working on this stop motion project for a while now, trying to get as much done and buy as many materials as i can with the wages from my day job. I have finally finished a few of the silicone heads and a couple of other puppets but lots more to do. I will be starting a crowdfunding campaign to help me cover some of the costs of materials, but any support in whatever sense is really appriciated. Have a look and join the group on Facebook which i will be updating regularly..http://www.facebook.com/ALittleSliceOfHell

Lovely. Wonderful personalities, especially the skeleton and devil.

I like the way you built Cerberus, with the two side heads added later.  I may try that - I have a story idea set in Hell too.  It's still a long way off ( 2 other films to do first), so yours will probably be finished before I even start it.  Nice exposed ribs on that puppy, too!

The heads look good, and the devil sculpt, but somehow the skeleton pulling his cart full of bones is the most appealing... something about his posture conveys his weariness!

Some fantastic work being made here! Love it!!!

Thanks guys, great to get some feedback. Im a big fan of yours Nick so the comments mean a lot, I think I pestered you a while back via youtube about what you used for matting agents with silicone! Thanks for the responses.

I like the expressions on the faces of the dammed!

Some pictures of the Pizza boy armature and the 1:6 sclae vespa which i spent the weekend deconstructing and fitting working headlamp and brake lights.

I've got one of those 1:6 Vespas too!  Most of the NewRay model bikes don't look great because the spokes on the wheels are much too fat, but with the Vespa that's not an issue and it looks just as real as the expensive model bikes like Minichamps.

I fitted a working headlight to a model Indian Chief but it wasn't as neat a job as you've done.  I had a wire that was concealed behind the bike and connected to a  240v/12 v transformer -  I had to move it every few frames as the bike moved along the road.  Does yours do that, or is that a built in battery under that hatch?  Looks like an LED from the bluish colour so it might run for a reasonable time on battery power - my bulbs are incandescent and would run a battery down too quickly.

I had my eye on the vespa for a while, and was really pleased with it. It was relativley easy to take apart which meant I could run the wires inside the frame. The only holes.i needed to.drill were in the side of the headlamp. And of course the back end was taken off so I can fit a pizza box. The led bulbs are just cheap and cheerful 5mm diffused white, so may well kick out a blue tinge, I have to admit im not to hot on electronics! The battery pack is concealed in the side of the vespa where there is a little hatch that opens. I didnt know it was there until I got the vespa home so was really happy that I could fit the battery holder inside, saves having to move the battery pack and wires alongside the bike. Just the pizza box to go now!

Here is an update on the vespa with pizza box, and some paint work, just need to roughen up the paint and add abit of dirt to make it look a bit more authentic.
