Epic Battle of Sudden Hill Memorabilia

On December 21, 2015 by jw

This is a 3D printed and hand painted statue of the fight between George Michael (rocket man) and Tobias Fünke (mole) over Sudden Hill (aka Tiny Town) in episode 5 of season 3 of Arrested Development. So far this is the largest and most complicated print I’ve done to date. The base is about 12 inches wide. It didn’t fit on the printer’s bed so it had to be split into two pieces. Everything was modeled in Maya and Mudbox. All the parts were printed with PLA and then airbrushed with acrylic. The base was sprayed with 3M General Purpose 45 Spray Adhesive and then covered with gravel I found at a nearby construction site. The power lines are super dyneema braided fishing line. The small trees were purchased from a model shop. The paper textures on the houses and water tower were extracted from a still frame from the episode and then ink jet printed and glued into place.
