Well, whenI bought my webcam, I immediately saw was what it would be as I took it out from the box. I cannot, for life, recall which webcam it is, maybe someone could help me here? The original stand was intended for the older type monitors, not for the flat screen types that are the norm now. That meant that the original stand would not hold atop my computer monitor, so something was needed to be done.
I cut the body from some scrap MDF board, which was then laminated together, this picture is from where I've already done some sanding with dremel, and the feet are glued to the body.
Here is the 'head' ie the webcam itself. I test painted it to see how it related to it's unfortunate counterpart. The similarities are astonishing.
Here my Kenny has met with mister Hankey.. The wood filler I had at hand when I started smoothing the seams was brown, hence the color.. I am testing the head with the body together for a millionth time in this photo..
I screwed part of the original stand inside of the new body, to allow the head to be attached like it normally is, and to allow some movement for the head. The white gooey thing in there is PVA glue, if you wondered..
Here is a mugshot of my new Kenny. This was taken before the mister hankey part, but I thought it shows how alike this webcam is to Kenny McCormic..
And finally, here is the finished product, all in it's orange gory.. I still need to make a stand for it so it will stand still, but otherwise this is done. A quite a while ago, I must admit, four months ago... I guess I should update this blog more often, don't you think..
