    KISS / Gene Simmons Destroyer Boot - KISSBOOTER - Completed

    Using some 1/2 inch aluminum stock I made up the base of the boot. This will allow me to attach the top part to it and to give me a boot shape.









    Next comes the part I really want to try and do... carving the outer shell out of foam.

    I had looked online for some foam that you can use to sculpt with but it was crazy expensive for the amount I would need so I headed over to Home Depot. I knew I would need some fairly dense foam so I found some that you use to insulate walls with and that it had a high R Valve as I figured it would be pretty dense.

    I grabbed a 4'x8' sheet and some caulking/glue that is made just for working with foam. Some glues and such will actually melt the foam.

    I cut it up into some shapes and started to glue them together around the frame work. You see the PC part will slide out of the Boot Part to gain access to the hardware.

    So once I got the pieces glued together it was time to lay out my design and to start to removed the unwanted parts of the foam.






    Little by little I removed the foam with a sponge like sanding block. This happened to be the ideal thing to use as it allow me to do the basic outline and detail I needed.

    Too funny. Great work but a funny theme.

    I would hope so...

    I think I might name it the KISS-Booter (sounds like computer to me :-) )

    Anyways, I used my dremel to do some of the more detail stuff and to remove large sections like in between the teeth. With it still being all white you can see some of the detail, but once I get some paint on it you will start to see it better.








    Close up

    Looking very cool Freak. My first concert was a Kiss concert on Halloween back in the seventies. I must say they put on one the best shows I've ever seen as well. Can't wait for more updates. Keep up the great work.
