Styrofoam skeleton and film preview

The video clip above is a short 5 minute segment I put together using the footage we shot from the last couple of days. I wanted to preview how the light was in the shop and other areas of the house as well as how the Sony HDR-FX1 HD camera handled various conditions like hand-held steadiness, close-up focus, 1080i high-def image quality, etc.

It worked out kind of neat, so I uploaded it to for you to check out.

Todays progress:

I finished the Styrofoam skeleton today - it went pretty fast actually. The sections are hot glued onto the main profile. Next I will lay over narrow, 2" wide, 1/2" thick Styrofoam strips, then sand it smooth.
