Custom Temple of Doom


Recommended Posts

Still working on the other dios, but I've finally started work on the Temple of Doom. My first attempt to make this was in 1985, but that version didn't work out too well. Hopefully, this one will be better.


To start with, here's some of the reference photos I used.






I started with the columns, making them in three parts. The top is cast from two latex moulds:

The shaft is made from cereal box card, scored and folded around.




The bases are made from squares of balsa wood. I'm going to wrap some ribbon arounbd the base to simulate the carved decoration that you see in the movie.






The next stage was to make the winch. It's made of card with wooden balusters from a doll's house shop for the handles. Then I glazed it with wood stain to make it look like wood.

I've started working on the statue of Kali, which is going to be difficult to make. I started by buying three cheap plastic dolls and cutting their heads off (which felt kind of weird). Then I glued two extra arms onto the main figure. There's still two to add, but I need to reshape them first.








It should look less perverted when I've painted it black and put the proper Kali head on.
