I have started working on the Plasticine sculpture for the Harryhausen Cyclops stop motion 10" model. Here is my progress shots:
Myself sculpting the model. Shows the scale of the puppet.
Simple aluminium wire armature.
Tie-down nuts to screw figure to the base.
The figure attached to the base. Milliput epoxy putty was used to secure the nuts to the feet and duct tape to strengthen the wire.
6mm eyeball inserted.

For my final college project, I have decided to recreate one of Ray Harryhausen's most iconic creations, The Cyclops! The model will be 10" tall, fully articulated with an internal wire armature, and possibly cast in silicone rubber (a first for me!). So far I have done a few scale working drawings and detailed renderings of the creature and armature designs, and also a Plasticine maquette (see below).
Scale drawing by myself. Coloured in Photoshop.

I finally found the photos! Chuffed to bits!
From left to right: Diana (Ray's wife), Ray and myself.
The original Ornithomimus model from "The Valley Of Gwangi" (1969)
A hard rubber copy of the Minaton from "Sinbad & The Eye Of The Tiger" (1977)
and the original Skeleton as featured in *"The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad" (1958) and "Jason & The Argonauts" (1963).
*Ray reused the skeleton model from 7th Voyage and made another 7 duplicates, so its hard to tell which one was originally in this film.
Getting my "Art Of Ray Harryhausen" book signed by Ray and Tony Dalton (author).
A little video I made which includes some video footage I shot, mind you the video quality isn't the best.
