It would probably walk in circles like that... ;)
Need to build 30 models per year until I'm 90 to clean out the stash. Time to get cracking!

lol, yup...I emailed Ftoys about it, but doubt it'll do any good, so I'll probably make it a wrecked one .

Ive gotten alot done today . The base is made, and I think this is how everything will be laid out.
I decided to make the AT-ST with the wrong leg a knocked out walker. I think I might open the hatch and add smoke coming out if it.

Looking real good- I love the subtle paint on the AT AT!
For the wrecked AT ST, you could drill some blaster holes in the "head"- which would explain why the top hatch is still closed: no survivors.
When you add the snow, you could have the poor chicken half buried in a drift- that would look really cool.

Though,upon oping a new can of spackle..to my surprise..I just may have to rename it the Battle of Hubba Bubba...I sure hope this stuff really does dry white..
this is the first coat..I also added some plaster rocks I had made from one of those rubber molds

I wouldn't stress if that's white or not...you can paint it.

Its already turning white..right now most of it is a sandy color.
Heres where Im at on the walkers.. Ive done the streaks and stains so far using oils. I have 1 side done on each,I'll do the other side tomorrow. Once the streaks are done I'll do the washes and pastel work.
