MLP FiM custom: Derpy, Dinky + steampunk autogiro! by vulpinedesigns MLP FiM custom: Derpy, Dinky + steampunk autogiro! by vulpinedesigns
Umm...so I was rewatching the 90s reboot of The Wombles, which included a steampunk-ish helicopter, and came up with this little custom! Derpy with flying goggles, scarf, tool pouch and spanner in her mouth, with an Equestria Mail Service gem-powered autogiro (With mail pouches and pilot's cutie mark on the tail) and Dinky in goggles hanging over the side of the cockpit! Comes in seperate pieces - can be repositioned, rotor rotated, etc. Made from a blindbag, plasticard, putty, brass, copper, flock, acrylic paint and lacquer. Ebay link, usual 0.99 start! [link]

Wow... that's nice. I love pony sculptures, and I have a lot to learn from this one.

Thanks, glad you like it! In a few weeks I'll be doing a video tutorial for making blindbag customs like this!

But I can't find those blindbags anywhere... I'm trying to sculpt the entire pony from nothing.

Sculpting from scratch is impressive, what putty are you using? I prefer kneadite (green stuff), but some folk prefer Milliput or Sculpey! Actually, this blindbag seller on Amazon UK posts to Spain, if that's any help? [link]

I tryed some... this is an experiment: [link] with all the details. The finished version is: [link] I mixed the colors and painted fast before the mix got dried, and I'm not specially proud of the result, but for an experiment...

D'aww...she looks sweet! Not a bad sculpt at all, actually, better than my first efforts! One useful tip - green stuff is horribly expensive in Games Workshop, but much cheaper on the internet - I buy 36" on ebay for the same amount as GW charge for 8".

Thanks ^^.

I know, but someone told me that from Games Workshop, the only two worth things were the green stuff and the ink, I have no idea about how regular green stuff is supposed to be, but I have to say that that ink is awesome. Yes, It's just like paint with more water, but... I don't know, the result is far better. Thanks for the advice but I think I'm going to use just Milliput white stuff, cause I can model the basic shape, let it cure and then, sculpt the details and grind the surface with a razor (It gets a lot of time, cause it gets hard like stone). Cured green stuff gets something like a very hard rubber, and I didn't find a way to sculpt it after cured.

Thanks, glad you like it! Yep, figured mail pilots would be allowed to decorate their planes a bit, like WW1 fighter pilots! (Hmm...ponies as WW1 fighter pilots - I feel an idea for a custom coming on!)

Thanks, really appreciate that! The details are made with 'green stuff' putty (it's actually called that!), shaped with a craft knife and wet scalpel!
