Flying Bird Tank logo

(Thanks Jacob)

I am wanting to have a play:

To this:

I made it a tad too thin but you get the idea.

I can work with a photo but the cleaner the artwork the better the end result.

I did the artwork for the little 40 decals, that SOS now stock. However it’s on my PC back in the U.K. I’m in Germany until August. Sorry.

Have you done the one like Seagull101'S avatar as well?
I would like that one because of the curved top and bottom on the logo.

Thanks to Keith for a copy of an old Marston Pic I was able to turn this:
Marston gulll.jpg
with a tiny bit of clean up to this:
Marston gull fixed.jpg
I then used an online program called image to Lithophane:

and came up with this:
IMG_3200.jpg
I used the rectangular pillow option to help things stand out a little more.

Still a bit more work to do cleaning it up before attempting to mould it up to cast.
If this works out OK I may make print 6 and attach them on a plate to save time when it comes to casting.


Maybe this thread should be moved to some other part of the forum?

Ha Ha!
I've just read through my own thread and no where have I said what I wanted this lot for. :roll:

Yes it will be a belt buckle, I'm not sure what I will cast them in yet ( brass / bronze or Aluminium )
IMG_3202.jpg
Quite a bit more clean up to do on the back. I may take the loop off the back and just put some posts on it, then add a wire to attach the belt after it is cast.... not sure yet.
Brass would look nice with the face polished up, with the lines / words left as cast and black. The only issues with brass / bronze is the weight = higher cost for shipping

Aluminium won't look quite as good (maybe) but it is a lot lighter so shipping costs would be a lot less. Aluminium is also a lot easier to work and its cheaper to start with.

If you had the choice would you go for the brass / bronze or Aluminium?

Anyone else with a pic that would work as a buckle? Things to think about ... bits that stick out that poke in you guts! That is why I put this one on the oval back.

I have made one or two!

The mould costs more the the part.

Got one cast just to have a look. The back it too thick and I got a bit of shrink.

I still cleaned it up for a look, still needs some work but it's still not too bad.

Not sure, the next one I might just polish up the entire thing?

Put a figure on it, How much would you pay for one?

Well, I don't wear belts anymore, cant find any large enoughlol

But as a collector piece, probably around $30-$40 I'd say. Hope that doesn't offend.

As a 1 off it would need to be $40.
I'm planning on making a pattern to be able to mould up 4 or 6 at a time but that will depend on the amount of interest.
I could also change it form Marston seagull to British Seagull if there is more interest in that.
