Post 2: Creating the base.

A router with a round-over edge forming bit, was used on the top side of the base.
I then used a Dremmel multi to carve out a groove, from where the rod exits the wood to the edge of the base.
This will help model the destruction caused by the passing of the "death ray"
Attachment 17925

A few inches of the rod on the end that will attach to the model, was re-shaped using a grinder.
The idea was to create an oblong section, so that the corners will prevent the model rotating around the rod.

My plan is for the rod to enter the barrel of the "death ray", and within the weapon there will be a square section that the newly shaped rod will fit through.

The image above shows half of the weapon, in order to point out the section inside it that will be squared off.

I wanted to have the beam cutting through an object on the base, in order to have a more interesting scene.
I played with the idea, of having a barrel split in two, and the contents spilt across the base, but in the end, I decided to instead use a tank trap.
I cut a section of the tank trap off, and I will paint the exposed surface to look as if it is glowing hot from being obliterated by the beam.

The next challenge was to model the explosion around the point of impact.
In the picture below I have started adding scenery to the base, and used some green stuff and metal wire (chopped up large paper clip) to form a support structure for the impact explosion I intend to model.

That is all for today.
