Mini Shizuma Drive - Prototype II

shizuma drive - II
Even those "Scientists" didn't get the Shizuma Drive right on the first try.
Here's Prototype II in between two of the previous models. You can see the one where the core did not center well, still looks cool though.

In addition to the curing issue with the core, the resin did other things that I did not anticipate. It magnified the core, so I got a smaller one. And it made the 'nodes' in the caps difficult to see, so I raised them. Those changes worked out great, I'd say, but unfortunately, I mixed the resin too vigorously and there are lots and lots of air bubbles. I also didn't add enough green dye, but that's ok...I added something else...that secret will be revealed with arrival of the "Beautiful Night"...
