Scootaloo on a cloudsweeper! All your arguments are invalid!
So I was playing me some Ni no Kuni a few weeks back and I was REALY hoping I would get to fly one of these bad boys! Unfortunately, I never got to. All I got was a sweet-ass car and a giant flying reptile. That's cool too, I guess. Dragons are cool. But they don't have machine guns. Well, technically I suppose they have flamethrowers, but you know what I mean. I really wanted a cloudsweeper. And then (my head being full of ponies) I thought, you know who ELSE would realy like a cloudsweeper? Scootaloo. Nay, she NEEDS a cloud sweeper. This needs to happen, and by Celestia, I have to be the one to do it!
It's sculpted entirely from the cheap modeling paste they sell at my local Action (supermarket chain) It seems to be made out of chalk, paper pulp, sawdust, glue and Celestia only knows what else. I've taken to calling it "The Stuff"
I sprayed the sweeper with black and gold paint, painted everything else by hand with acrylic.
The sheet aluminium parts are sculpted from The Stuff covered by brushed heavy-duty aluminium duct tape. (The actual aluminium tape used for securing air ducts! Not to be confused with DUCK TAPE, the ever popular all-purpose gray tape named for its COTTON DUCK reinforcement! It's a completely different kind of tape! Seriously people, this is a pet peeve of mine! Stahp calling it duct tape! If a ducting professional saw you using it to fix an air duct, he would scoff at you. SCOFF, I tell you! [link]
The canvas part of the wings is just the dirty old rag I used in my garage. I loved how dirty and oily it was. Teh SUPER steampunx, yo!
The Base is just a big old rock covered in The Stuff.
