The Covid-19 Custom Challenge

So, it appears as though we all might have a little extra time on our hands. Time to do some spring cleaning, catch up on your favorite shows, read that book... OR FINISH THOSE CUSTOMS THAT HAVE BEEN SITTING DORMANT IN YOUR WIP PILES FOR SEVEN YEARS!!!!

Because that’s what we do, all of us. They get pieced together, they sit, life gets busy.

If you are affected at all by staying home extra due to the current real life situation, Joecustoms encourages you to dip your toes back into the hobby and finish the work you have been sitting on. On the other hand, start something new if it suits you!

If you don’t have much in the way of supplies and don’t want to venture out, make an LBC. Modify? Paint? Sculpt? Do whatever! Just don’t go stir crazy sitting at home.

We have set aside a small prize* for the customizer who participates the most, as determined by a panel of your peers.

We all don’t know how long this is going to last, so we are going to go with a June 1st end date.

Not much in the way of Rules, just a couple of thoughts. If you are finishing a WIP, show us where it’s at before and keep us up to date on the progress. Treat the custom the way we treat the two week challenge during custom celebration, show us the steps along the way. Gives everyone a chance to appreciate the work going into it.

Post in the critiques section please.

Have fun everyone and be safe!

Non-eligible WIP

I'm starting small with something I think I can actually finish. I've had this as a WIP on my workbench for 3 moves. I want to take the Heavy Water element cube from Mass Device and turn it into a small fish tank with a tiny castle and tiny fish.

Turn this,

Into something like this.

I'm eager to see that pluv. I got 5x of them with my cc I picked up from ebay. The package came quick from a us address but I still treated them with caution. All the parts got open outside and Clorox bath.

Stuff coming in now will get quafintine In an unused broke down car.

Busted through the rest after dinner and was able to take the pic before bed after everything dried.

I cut the heavy water element down to be just the bottom. The castle is Apoxie Sculpt and styrene tube. The fish is attached to the castle via a strip of clear packaging. The fish itself is painted hot glue.

Still waiting to see if I'll get quarantined. I'm supposedly working in one of those "essential" industries, but if I get the extra time I got some stuff that needs painting.

Lovely "little" work you did there, Pluv!
And OMG, if creating fish with hot glue is the new customizing standard, I really have to get some extra customizing classes. Very inventive, it came out unexpectedly well!
