Knowing my skill level a hard surface model is a good way to push myself.
The crimping section plates and crimper I have not started.
Started with primitives
Tool used most often.
Clone. I use the clone as a cutting or adding tool. Once you make your "cut/add" the clone is still there and can be use again. You can make lots of cutting/adding tools with the clone feature. It makes very clean cuts or additions. I'm looking forward to experimenting more with this in the future.
A little of the plane,Cut and Clone and split tool.
Hopefully it will look very mechanical when I'm done...
Grips just shown as metal now but will be rubber.

Added the side plates that hold the dies and the hinge wheels. Phil, it indeed would look pretty funny not being connected. I was'nt too far along when I posted the model... Hinge contecting the wheels is hidden from view in the photo.
Next is adding hexagon bolts, spring loaded die changers, a plate and the two dies...
I'm just following a photo(an angled view) by hand so I had to increase the size of the wheels some but it's still mechanical sound...
It's a heavy duty mechanical wire crimper. I saw many of these tools in my construction work days...

All work is being done using the inhouse 3DCoat tools no external imported models...

Well done, do you know this artist? Jim Dine
Thanks all for your comments. It is continuing to be a good way for me to better my skill at handling voxels. Jim Dine, I had never heard of him before. I liked his style of color use and brush work in the tool paintings. I worked in contruction for many years so these tools are familar with me and it is funny how you can become in some ways emotionally attached to works tools as they bring back memories and good times working contruction. Now has they say in the Construction industry here " It's burning daylight" which means you better get your tail moving and get some work done and finish those darn wire crimpers...
