I've always loved the little bird dashboard bobble head that Nux has in Mad Max: Fury Road. I just got a 3D printer and on searching for files for this one, found there was nothing (at least that I could find). So I decided to make my own version!
It's not 100% movie accurate but it's close enough for me to look at and go "YEAH! That's rad!" haha.
Building historic on the Fury Road!
I used the Raven Skull by sprocket1597 and modelled the rest with TinkerCAD. I ended up splitting the skull so the beak parts printed pretty much upright and it printed fine with just a small brim.
The spring is a number C-766 (9/16 x 3 x .054, 14.300 x 76.2 x 1.372) by Century Spring Corp. I bought it from Bunnings here in Australia. It took a little squishing at the top to fit into the hole I modelled, and I had to cut it down as it was quite long, but I'm happy with the results and it bobbles well! The spring is stuck down in the stand well with some kneadable mending epoxy stuff I stuffed down in there and jammed the spring into.
I painted it with flat soft iron and satin ivory spray paint and then did a diluted black wash and rub to dirty it up.
