OK. Mine is finished despite an eleventh hour problem.

See  OTB

This thing is huge, way bigger than I thought when I ordered it.

AMT meant it to be built like this:.........



............ but I think that looks awkward so I modified mine to give a more motorcycle look.

Up to the very last minute, when I applied some 'artist's dull coat varnish' I had great fun with my first serious attempt at weathering. It darkened everything and put a sheen on it, taking away most of the 'rust' effect.



Imagine if you will......, 'In a galaxy far, far away' (LOL) ......the Federation has been at war with the Republic for over a millenia and is running dangerously low on resources. So low in fact they have been deploying centuries old and de-commisioned, rusty old droids such as this old battle hardened master sergeant.

I gave him a cigar to make him a bit of character.

Thanks both.

Paul, it fits on a shelf in one of my Ikea display cabinets and there is still room for 2/3 1/25 scale cars.

Steve... you hit it on the nail. That's exactly what it looks like. Just not what I'd intended!! LOL.

I hadn't realised how dark the photos were. I've lightened them now and it looks as near as makes no odds to what it does in reality.

Al, I think it turned out sweet. It looks like it has been around the block a time or two. I think you did an excellent job on it.

Thanks guys.

I forgot to include a close up of the base I made. Since he's on the ground, I placed his left foot there too, ala bike style.

Very cool. Giving it a well used look makes it great. The base is itself a fine creation, more than many would make the effort to do. First rate warrior.
