Thing-O-Matic: Miniature Swig Cup

A miniature version of the Swig Cup came out reasonably well. It’s supposed to be a platform-filling monster; at only 25 mm tall, it’s cute:

There’s a bit of trouble with the overhangs at the bottom and top of the handle and the spouts at the top look a bit lumpy. What you can’t tell from that crappy picture is that the panels don’t quite seal to the cylinders: it’s not watertight.

You’ll also have trouble seeing the fine hairs connecting all the spouts. The Reversal plugin in combination with 100 mm/s moves makes the ooze hairs easily removable, although I tend to leave them in place for show-n-tells.
