Post subject:  The GerCM hits the ground

After retrofitting a Grid Case into a Sentry Gun control terminal, the next logical step was to build a sentry gun. But before that, i began with that i searched for usable cargo pallet for a decent environment to present it. Of course the original palettes for the main corridor are almost impossible to find.


By chance i came across 9 of these palettes, very similar to those used in the side corridors :


Our goal in this year to paint them properly and use them for our next events table´s Photowall....

With too much real life happening during these days, progress is slow but constantly. After cleaning the palettes i began to paint them with Hammerite "hammered metal paint" in a dark grey finish. Though i was sceptical using no primer, the paint seems to stick perfectly.


I decided just to paint the surface and the upper 5cm / 2 inches, since that hammerite isnt that cheap. I think it really works for the moment:


Even more when you install lighting (This was tested in an earlier stage):


Last but not least i found these palettes on screen, when Hicks´squad was making their sweep finding the "Acid for Blood" holes :


I hope i can finish these until our next Drop at Comic Con Berlin in October.

very cool, they sure will add even more realism to the GerCM stand and backdrop.
