Zarkus AT-PT mini-dio

Post by dupes » February 5th, 2015, 4:56 am

So I got this kit sent to me semi-started from a KoTF user. He (or she!) shall remain nameless unless he (or she!) steps forward to claim public thanks. :D

Couple of bits needed to be repaired from shipping damage, I replaced the guns with some brass rod and tube, and I added a stretched-sprue antenna because I figured that's got to be what the hole is for on the roof above the cockpit, right? Included in my care package was a pile of unknown-source resin stormtrooper parts - just so happened to be exactly 1/72 scale! He measures out at one inch on the dot, putting him at 6 scale feet. Added a couple of decals from my ever-useful Cosmos Models sheet (*wink, wink* ;) ).

The finished business:

Braille stormtroopers are frickin' tiny!
Need to build 30 models per year until I'm 90 to clean out the stash. Time to get cracking!

S-A-W-E-E-T!!! Very nice looking diorama. You guys are so creative, and I wish I had the time to do what I see at this forum, but I barely have time just build the kits I'm selling. Are you planning to come to WonderFest again this year? That's a worthy entry for the competition.

Ahhhh, I wish I could come every year! It'll probably be a while until I make it back (although my 501st buddies are pushing hard for at LEAST every other show). It's a bit of a bummer being unable to bring finished builds with me having to fly in...I know there's no way this thing would make it even in a carryon.

Thanks a lot Del! I believe I owe you a build next... ;)

Nice - the stormtrooper really gives a good sense of the size of it.

Looks awesome. Cool base as well
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.

Wicked!! I love the dio!!! Though the Stormtrooper would be about a 1/4 scale figure in this dio...

This makes me want to disassemble my build and build and paint it again! Great work!

Hmmmm. If that drawing is correct, then this kit is nowhere CLOSE to the advertised 1/72 scale. What gives?
