Adam's latest prop build is a replica of Star-Lord's Walkman from Guardians of the Galaxy! This is a styrene scratch build using some of Adam's favorite modelmaking materials and techniques. And a few firsts for a One Day Build--the use of a vinyl cutter for the logos, as well as a minor injury mid-build!

Using a shear/brake/roll scavenged from ILM to make a belt clip? That's the only problem I have with Tested - given the option of breaking out the museum piece and sacrificing a large piece of sheet metal to fabricobble widget vs. buying it from a fabric store for a few dollars or (in this case) scavenging it from a tool holster that he's never used, Adam will choose the former. EDIT: 31:23 You could "build this in a cave with a box of scraps!"

I love how Adam comes up with a fully formed idea midway through talking to the camera and then quickly dashes off and does it in a minute better than most could do in an hour

I though I am the only one that passes out when I get hurt. What i have learned is my body doesn't handle the adrenaline well Causing me to pass out. A week ago I almost passed out because I got stung by a bee.

On the real Walkman you'd see the spindles that turn the cassette. Might be worth adding.

It looks a little to pristine in the end with only the turpentine as a weathering material. I'm wondering if he realized that using some cheesecloth and mildly watered down dark gray paint would have given it a more used and abused but still loved and cared for look to it

I sent 3 weeks making a 1:25 scale model with this material in 2016 for a college project. I was just about finished and I relied it was printed 96 percent instead of 100% size to fix box in autocad .So my model was 0.3 mm off the brief. I had to redo the model again in 1:25 in 2 days . Long story short. I hate this plastic material fomex. But I love it at the same time it great for doing weathering and paint techniques. its cool if you put PVA Glue on it and let it dry you can crack it and use a tooth brush to make scorch marks

I know a lot of previous work experience and talent goes into something like this, but I cant help but think 3d printing would have chopped off half the work from this task. An SLA printer would have gotten phenomenal detail in less than a day just leaving the painting to be done.

Yup, accidents in the shop happen sometimes. I’ve had that same light headedness when I smashed my thumb between my breaker bar and the cars body when I was changing my wheel hubs on my car. I had to lay down for a bit and take an ibuprofen. By next wk my nail fell out 😂

I do feel he could of bought a real Walkman, and then modified it to look like the one from the movie. Then he could make a mixtape with those songs on it and actually listen to it.

When he goes ”this is going to be overkill” I'm thinking ”yeah but that's kinda your thing” When I see how the piece turns out ”oooh, that's gorgeous overkill” Also, I cannot tell the difference between sanding sticks and high-quality nail files. Are they the same thing?
Salera Hace un mes
I think they are basically the same thing. In one video Adam talked about how he used to stick sandpaper to thin wood in order to get sanding sticks until he realised he could use nail files instead...

Between 6:12 and 6:45 Adam Savage almost cuts himself about a dozen times within 30 seconds. Talking with your hands while holding a knife is way too cavalier. I could see it coming before it happened. Even people with expert dexterity wouldn't do that kind of stuff... and you're a savage! At least slow down.
