Almost done with the cigar! I also added proper eyes and some foam to keep them in place.

I painted the top of the picnic tap grey in the hopes it might look like ash on the end of the cigar with a little wisp of smoke coming off. I like the effect

I built up the body of the cigar around an aluminum tube with electrical tape, then covered it with cloth flower tape so it looks like a real cigar. I then gave it a quick spray of clear laquer to protect it.

Next we work on the arms and hands.

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to

Here are a few more detail shots of the cigar. Note the clamp and new cigar are taken from a Rock Band drum kit

Also, updates will now be posted to my new Benderator Blog so I don't have to post them in 14 different places.

This looks spectacular! You should make it a point to only serve smoked beers out of this.

Just ran across this and it reminded me of this build. One to brew it, one to serve it...

The grey tap for smoke is a nice touch.
