Haha, nice work man. I did a bender costume 2 years ago. My friend was able to fit the top over a sanke keg for dispensing the next year through the mouth. Rock on!

Ok guys, fiberglass work continues. In case anyone's curious how I do it, I start by spraying glue on the form so the 'glass cloth sticks to it. You can also wet the piece with fiberglass resin first (I'm using polyester resin here), but I find the spray glue makes life a lot easier. I can position and reposition the pieces until I'm happy without worrying about my resin hardening up on me. You've got 10-15 minutes once you mix in the hardener.



Then I wet the whole thing out with resin. I went through a lot of resin



While that's drying I went to the lathe and turned Bender an antenna.



Next is body filler, primer, then paint! I'm going to use him for a party this weekend, so he may not get painted until next week.

Ok... I will pay you 1 Million dollars for this.

I can't pay you now, but 1 day you will have the money... probably. I just NEED this.

Do you think you could turn a profit on these at $1,000,000?

So what's the inaugural "Benderbrau" going to be?

This project is awesome.

That's the only way I'd do it - this is a lot of work!

Well, it's going to serve a Belgian Wit this weekend, but I'm open to suggestions on a beer to brew specifically for him

Cold Fusion Steam Beer - It's the only way to go.

I have a high-res BenderBrau label graphic if you want it. Having trouble uploading it at the moment, though.

Ah, here we are:

Reason: got it
