I wanted to do a car mod too. Now with all the negativity surrounding that I guess I have to look at other ideas

(Actual reason- Can't rip those beloved Hotwheels apart. Just can't )

I know that feel Sarath...it's too painful. Besides those wheels are sacred, they can't be defiled like that.

@d6 you're just asking for it now!

You can do a car mod or any other mod. What you cant do is pretend to be modding things when you arent.

You dont even feel like believing the "mod" which Pranay Sarkar did. Even without the other evidence it was clear than nothing was modded at all.

We can consider extending the contest if it is absolutely necessary and in interest in substantial number of people. Right now we have no plans to extend the contest.

I got the sense of that. I saw the car mod. I thought it was something he was intending to make as in draw inspiration from. I am a little ambitious in having myself not use any pre fabricated parts.

Either ways I think we have dedicated more than what is required to discussion the one flawed entry.

@Everyone: What materials are you guys using for sculpting etc? I can only think of clay which I don't think is good.

Even I would petition for extending the competition. It would also help SVG space his competition.

Well, for my mod I used cardboard and quarter inch thick foam. I did use a little clay to smooth out some imperfections. Cardboard is very flexible, and I'll be using it a lot in my Diablo mod.

what type of clay?




and here is my entry

le victim



now to cut that loop thing off

i cut it off, smoothed it with a file and rubbed it on some cloth for sexy smoothness


neatly cut a tic tac top off. cut the paper actually. but needed to be as good as possible.
then i added some foam tape which i got yesterday to the bottom and side
and stuck my pendrive in



this is what it looks like from the side, pendrive is hardly noticeable. specially since you will have the wrist covering the portion of the box opp to the hole.
Whats best is the hole can still pop out tic tacs as it is unobstructed XD



from this side its visible, but this will be covered by your wrist



and... in action

yes i have sexy fingers, thank you



so anyone ready for some top secret reconnaissance missions



NB:-
since the pen drive is a tight fit into the back of the tic tac cover, i can just grap the tic tac cover and yank the drive of the port as well. the tape is good.

Basic modelling clay, that's been 'wettened' slightly by oil.
