"If it bleeds,We can kill it"

Recommended Posts

Modelling mojo stalled due to due to taking myself out of my comfort zone with the Tamiya 88 mm gun,So needed a "Fun" project to reinstate said Mojo.

Came across this Handsome fella on E-Bay,took a punt and got it for about £20.00 including postage.

I actually think this is one of the better Predator models out there,its got a nice stance,reminiscent of the scene in the film when it unmasks.

Unusually,for a vinyl kit,it has a fair few parts

After a few hours of heating,cutting,applying plasters to thumb,(Ain't got time to bleed) Ended up with this.

Thinking about a Jungle base now!

Ah build that has a blood sacrifice, (a cut thumb) the modelling gods will be pleased.

The build is looking good so far.

That's a cool kit,and a cool pose. Much better than the halcyon kit I've got.

Commence another round of Predator quotes (apart from the ban-able one! )

"Billy, you ain't afraid of no man......"

"This ain't no man....this is a vinyl figure!"

(Yes, this is even worse than my last puns... Oh Lord, help us!)

Still following with great interest.

Been working on the handsome fellas visage(I think that's how Arnie described it in the film) With a bit of careful cutting I should be able to Swap heads when the mood takes me,the Shoulder Cannon only fits the helmet version.

Cheers HR,Just trying out my "Two Heads are better than one" Concept,I feel it really changes the "Mood" of the model when you compare them side by side(Prefer the snarly one myself)

Hi, Andy.

Mr. P is a genuine tribute to your building & painting skills, Sir! I like both versions, but having him snarling / letting out a hunting-scream is the cherry on the cake.

I had this kit about two years ago, but sold it in the Telford Kit Swap.... kinda thinking I made a bad choice, now I've seen yours!

Thanks for sharing with us.

Chris.

That's looking really nice, I love your paintwork and the icky wet bits on the 'orrible face. It's like the jungle came alive or something.

Thanks for the feedback all,

Looks like the Jungle is,indeed,coming alive.

A combination of air drying clay,cheap aquatic plastic plants and a few handfuls of various dried herbs from the spice rack.............So a fairly bland tea for me today!

Cheers
