I you need some more 3-D type reference, it is small, but micro-machines has one

If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

Guys, Moderator's note: I deleted all the silly and disturbing pics that appeared in this thread. Chain Driven is doing an awesome job on this build, and we (mostly I) went and hijacked it, and I feel that was a little disrespectful to him and his efforts. So I deleted them.

Carry on with the great build dude!

Hi all,

Thanks for the infos unreality & Blakeh, and no worries about the thread being hijacked, I loved it. :D

But as Darth Vader would say: "Thank you for restoring Order Admiral Jimi"

I'm now back to work on the Luggabeast after finishing my SPACE 1999 Eagle that you can find in the Cantina.

Soooo.

A few more pics showing more filling, sanding of the feet to get a flat base and the start on the Helmet.
I used a grid on the image to get the proportions right and despite that I had to shorten the first version of the helmet as it's got to fit the Tamiya body.
Happy now, next step, cladding it...

Thanks Dano!

And so the cladding begins...

I'm using super thin styrene to follow the shape of the frame, a side effect of using very thin styrene is that if you use too much cement it will wrinckle which I have used here to render dings and bad welding on the head.

It's now starting to look pleasing to me.

Nice fit and look for the armor.

It's such a sad looking beast.
