This is the build that doesn't end, yes it goes on and on my friend...

I'm not sure I like this connotation associated with my build.

I have problems with nozzles on those cans clogging too; have you tried using acetone to clear them? Nail polish remover has worked fine for me, but it might be a different kind of foam. Definitely makes it more economical than buying oodles of cans! Do be careful not to dribble it into the can though, or the whole contents will deteriorate.

P.S Loks great! [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

What I do with the expanding foam can is keep a straightened out wire hanger near by.  After using it, I clear out the detachable tube with the wire hanger, then clear the nozzle.

That is what I did too. For some reason the foam slides right out. It compacts a bit, but not enough to stand up to the clothes hanger wire.

That looks cool! I'd like to apologize for the sheep comment, not sure it was appropriate.

It is coming along.  Are you sanding by hand, or using a sander?

@CLOTHAR I'm using an old mouse sander with 120 grit paper.

@Deetoz it's alright. No harm done.

It looks a bit too big. Eldar helmets and armor usually sit close to the head/body. But that's just me, I guess.

The size of the helmet really depends on what source you use. Most artwork is typically going to have slimmer helmets to enhance the "elvish" look of the eldar, while the miniatures have larger helmets to allow for detailing.

Phew!  You would have very sore arms if you were doing it by hand, haha.

A body-filler rasp might be helpful as well. It is relatively inexpensive and I found that it was really handy for shaping or taking excess material off...
