For starters the armaments needed a little beefing up. I had the idea of running cables through the eye sockets of the skull emblem.
A couple of guitar strings will do the trick
The normal mounting position is the hole below the cockpit, but I really wanted to try something different. I thought it would look cool with the weapon following the pilot's line of sight.
Pin in place and ready to glue. I also cut and refit the feet around the terrain chunks.
I was slightly concerned with the tension the strings/cables added on the weapon, but it held firm and adds a nice touch of detail.
To keep the cables tight a staple was added on the Missile Launcher. It was slightly tricky to keep in place, but that's probably because it was a last second addition.
A few more details were added like spikes and an impaled torso. I opted for the open canopy so the pilot would be more visible. The spikes are from old sprues I had lying around.
I'm satisfied with the results so far. All that's missing are more chaos-y bits (you can never have enough spikes). I haven't decided if (or how) claws will be added to the feet. They look cool on the drawing board, but I don't want the model looking too eclectic with pieces just strewn about.
More pics will be up later this week. Cya then!
