BJD wheelchair WIP: main frame

Posted on Jan 19, 2018

Construction of the main frame of the sd-sized BJD wheelchair. As usual when sculpting, there’s a lot of sanding & fine-tuning involved. I chose model building aluminium pipes with thin walls for easy sawing and filing, and to ensure the final, cast version would look sufficiently metal-like in surface texture. Unfortunately this also meant they couldn’t make smooth, sharp turns very well (not without special equipment at least, which I didn’t have). So I made those out of epoxy clay instead.

Some parts of the final version will remain metal, because they need to be hollow and resin walls would be too flimsy: this because the handles on the back and the foot rest will have adjustable sliding mechanisms.
