custom built robot model
Urethane resin castings of scratch built master patterns were employed to create most of the other main parts like the feet, legs, arms and thrusters. Finishing details were made from sheet styrene, copper and brass tubing and aluminum rods. By complete coincidence, a small plastic lens robbed from a disposable camera was a perfect fit for the "eye" of the Robot model.
The "Nanofly" name was a decal produced by JBOT which has mirror like gold foil applied. The model was sprayed with specially mixed metallic automotive laquers and given a semigloss clear coat to match the look of the original computer generated renderings.
