  1. Thanks Hr ,I believe this was the first run and was,luckily,hollow cast ,so its suprisingly light,later runs were solid. Shelfmageddon tis a terrible thing I have a vague recollection of the "not Arnold\not Predator" minature,I think I saw it in a model and collectors mart mag way back.
  2. Ever had a "Nemesis" model or Kit? Ive had two,the He177 (Mpm and Airfix) and this huge resin kit I got about 300 years ago(Hyperbole much :),Late 90s),I think its been painted a least twice,and then re-primed and never finished,Well,Sod that for a game of soldiers,Am determined to finish it once and for all. * Wish me luck Im going in....................................................................... * Disclaimer \ may never get finished The protagonists The huge tree Im not sure but I think the sculptor,Simon Laurens may have realised too late he had the wrist blades on the wrong arm,so chucked in spare arms with the correct orientation,but it would decrease the dramatic effect so I stuck to the original plan Perhaps as a nod to the old Aurora kits the base has a snake and a spider on it,but I may cover with some foliage(oh,and a seperate frog Over the years its had a few knocks and bumps,and I will need to disguise the join with some Milliput work and foliage.While a bit rough and ready compared to the resin kits of today,its a true garage kit and not lacking in charm.
  3. Slime time is good time:) Looking nicely yucky.
  4. yep,its a converted figure,the likeness is a bit iffy,I may replace the head with a neca ripley. Original figure After surgery. The base was entirely scratch built.
  5. As requested,the collection my babies,In the man cave More man cave stuff. Living room,with obligatory IKEA display cabinets.
  6. Cheers Buddy! Thanks HR. Thanks Will,be careful what you wish for
  7. Why the big paws? Sorry ,couldnt resist,Very funny and well executed Dio,Nice one.
  8. bit more info here,its a terrific kit Thanks Chris,yep 40 years old this year,although in fairness it probably made it up(Lancaster) here around 1980.
  9. 40 years since I crouched down in my Cinema seat thinking "Dont touch the bloody thing you Idiot" I can add Kane to my Alien collection,the head is a replacement with a better likeness ,scale is listed as 1/9th. Good wholesome modelling fun,though got a bit sweary when hollowing out for the lighting
  10. Tiny killer robots! Excellent work Will.
  11. Ok,Nearly done,need to repair the paint job in a couple of places due to rough handling when trying to get all the lighting in,base to tidy up and visor needs to be put in place,but looks to be about 95% done. Thanks for all the views and comments. Andy
  12. Ok Kanes head is finished With helmet. Getting to the finish line.
  13. Cheers GS and Pete ,appreciate it. A couple of shots of the replacement head in situ,still need to work on the eyes,but very happy with the likeness.
