Product Work LogName_Aaron Fugate_______________________________________Date ________________Product ________Building a Scale Model of the Coliseum in Rome____Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions: Began spraying insulation into mold to Make sure it is warmOctober 15, 2011 form the actual structure of the and/or keep a heater1 hour building by the foam. Commentary: Bought 15 cans expecting it to be enough, but after spraying only 5 to cover the first layer of it, it looks like I will need closer to 50.
Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions:October 16, 2011 Began spraying insulation into mold to1 hour form the actual structure of the building Commentary: Used another 4 cans to spray the rest of the second layer.
Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions:October 17, 2011 Began spraying insulation into mold to form the It looks like I will need1 hour actual structure of the building around 20-30 more cans depending on how thick I make the layers of each day’s foam. Commentary: Used the rest of the 15 original cans finishing the third level. Structure is about a third of actual height.
Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions:November 12, Bought more cans of foam (another 15) and By making the layers2011 continued spraying the rest of the levels. About thicker and laying them2 hours half total height now. slower, less cans will have to be used. Commentary: With the next 15 cans it should get to be the required height, but some of it isn’t drying as fast as other parts due to the cold weather at night.
Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions:January 14, 2012 Removed the MDF board surrounding the foam3 hours now that all the foam has been sprayed and dried. Leveled off the top of the entire structure at 17 inches with a hand saw and sand paper. Commentary: Due to the differing temperatures the foam dried differently in certain places than in others and was much harder to remove from the MDF boards than expected.
Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions:January 15, 2012 Started to remove excess foam from the inside KNIVES. They work2 hours and cut away the interior elliptical arena. well. Commentary: With the Dremel, sanding away smaller parts is easy but regular knives seem to be much easier than the dremel when removing larger sections of foam.
Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions:February 18, 2012 Started sloping the inside walls down to the power sanding is much4 hours center of the arena with knives, and also cut too violent for the about 25 of the arches into the sides of the detailed work Im trying building. to do on the inside and getting it to work at the right angle is difficult at best. Commentary: Using knives seems to be the best way to cut away the foams, and serrated bread/fillet knives work the best.
Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions:February 19, 2012 Cut away a large section of the outside (about a6 hours fifth of the whole structure) to better access the interior and to show cross sections of the hallways and arch supports on the inside of the building. Continued working on the arches outside of the building and the interior slopes. Commentary: Only about 100 more arches to go! Also, the now cut away part of the structure isn’t as centered as I would have liked.
Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions:March 15, 2012 Finished most of the cutting on the interior The inside slope looks7 hours slopes and about 75% of the arches. The cross rough but I’m hoping section on one side is finished and the top level the sander will get rid of of the coliseum is now finished. most of the ridges/grooves. Commentary: Now that the entire slope if almost level the power sander will probably be extremely useful in getting it to be a solid and clean slope.
Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions:March 16,2012 Power sanded the inside slopes and finished In some spots the foam5 hours 90% of the arches. is very weak and porous, I think from the different temperatures when I sprayed the foam originally. Commentary: Can begin spackling the inside slope for more support/solidity.
Date/Time: Activity: Comment/Suggestions:April 7, 2012 Finished spackling the inside and spray pained5 hours and primed the entire structure. Added detail painting to the outside for shadow effects. Commentary: Most of the work was done outside and some of the paint has pollen/dirt in it and will need to be repainted.
Date/Time: Activity:Finished all detail work including Comment/Suggestions:April 17, 2012 inside doors, flags, painting, and sanding small5 hours errors. Commentary: Imfinially finished!
