off piste

Post by MikeV »

Inspired mostly by the the work of Tim 'n Emma I've had a break from the usual stuff. Full disclosure. I found a damaged 'Gundam' type model I'd built years ago at the bottom of a box and thought I might give it a refurb.

The 'head' had a full rebuild - I had it figured as a 'sighting and sensor' unit but decided to add a couple of close-in defence guns because I had some brass ones lying about. Rest of the model was dressed with bits of left over PE grilles etc and the flexible pipes came from an old heating element found in dad's old workshop. (never throw anything away!!)

Definitely a strong-hand approach to enforcement 😉
