The Jets'em Space Scooter Construction

 Initially constructed to be part of the MEGA EPIC Art Film the Jets'em Space Scooter is piloted through the Solar System by SUPER SONIC SHERRY JETS'EM while Mega and Hercules construct her Intergalactic Cosmic Space Coupe.


   Tubular steel construction insures aircraft durability at super sonic speeds.


 High density polyurethane foam adds ridigity and form yet keeps weight at a minimum.  


  The light weight polyester resin and fiberglass skin is applied to the urethane foam, sanded smooth and finished with polyester gel coat. 


 The flame design is layed out on the backside of the Scooter then color is applied with an airbrush.  


   The artwork is finished in acrylic lacquer while the front side is spayed with red polyester gel coat.

"Ad finem" SCULPTURE CONSTRUCTION

 
 
8' 9"h x 7'6"w x 4'3"d
"Ad finem" (TO THE END) SCULPTURE, constructed of metal, polyester and acrylic paint was used in the Art Film "MEGABABE" as the symbol of power in the universe. As an artwork it has a powerful message of its own as expressed in the poem PAX AMERICA,
Ad finem.


 Embodied in the design of the 1959 CADILLAC is the symbol of America at the apex of power in the technological world of the mid 20th century. Time now past is figuratively represented by the rusted and wrecked 59 CADILLAC components comprising its base. Never-the-less the power symbolized at that time by the industrial design itself remains intact through the pristine condition and iconic projection of the 1959 CADILLAC tailfin.



 
   

 Quarterpanels removed from the 1959 CADILLAC by the Intergalactic Fin Hunters resting in Megas Garage soon to become the sculpture "Ad finem".


 
After removing the rusted areas of metal the inside of the fenders are sandblasted and painted with epoxy primer.


  A tubular steel framework is constructed on which to hand form the sheetmetal skin.


20 gage sheetmetal is formed in panels and MIG welded to the skeletal structure.
 


  All surface oxidation and orginial primer is removed by sandblasting.

 The metal is totally clean and ready to be surfaced with epoxy primer.  

  Polyester filler is used to smooth out the surface area. 

Lacquer primer is then sprayed
to prepare the sculpture for
its color coat.
 
 

  The orginial type acrylic lacquer,
1959 CADILLAC Seminole Red, G.M. code #50 is then applied
as the final finish.
