5th Element Mondoshawan
Posted by OctaneOrange on Saturday, June 12, 2021 9:20 PM

3D Printed in resin on my Creality LD002R. i opted to print as a solid chunk, giving the model a nice heft when held. 

and I airbrush painted in tamiya gold with an over spray of tamiya clear orange for a bronze look.

I did a bit of chrome and painted over with clear blue and clear red for the lights.

Quite a job you did there.  I remember these guys from the beginning of the movie, but I never heard their name before.  Just how big is this piece.

Oh wow that's cool! Great job on the printing and the painting!!! 

 

I didn't recall the name either, I was just calling them 'the good alien guys'.

Spot on!  Really nice job.  I love that movie - are you going to do a Mangalore next "Don't press the red button"

Thanks,

John

Yes, this is quite impressive; I didn't know there were any models of items from the Fifth Element.

Very cool!  I like the Mondoshawans' design, the lines and shapes make them look a little like European gentlemen from the turn of the 20th century-like they're wearing striped morning trousers, waistcoats, and cutaway coats.

As far as the name goes, it's mentioned several times, but usually with a lot of things going on.

Brilliant casting, too-I loved Tiny Lister as the President.

he is almost 5 inches tall

So, somewhere around 1/20 to 1/24 scale--very cool.

Fire burns, wind blows, water flows, and... dirt just kind of accumulates?

That's a lot of cool stuff Octane Orange!

He is awesome. YesYesYes

I'm curious how are you coming up with the programs for your printer?

Do we still call them 'programs'?

Again, great work. The dance/fight scene is that movie was a work of genius, and I'm still blown away each time I see it.
