Re: Pegasus Models Hunter Killer

This here kit from Pegasus Hobbies has been knocked out the park again.


I always wanted the old Horizon version since I built one as a commission waaay back when it first came out, but was always put off by it being vinyl and so chuffin’ big. That last one is even more important now, with barely any shelf space left.


But this is IP plastic and much smaller. In fact, the smallness seems to be a source of moaning online, with folk reckoning it’s far too tiny to be 1/35th. Er... Ummm.... nowhere on the box nor the instruction does it state that it’s meant to be 1/35th, so don’t know what they’re on about.


Watching the battle at the start of T2, the HK’s look to me to be about a bit bigger than an Apache Helicopter, so down I come with two different scale figures to gauge things – you can see them at the bottom of the photo here. Yup, 1/35th is way too big, the other fella is 1/48th and reckon is just about right – 1/72nd would make the craft too darn big.
Looking forward to starting this, also looking forward as to what to do with a couple of things – have the ship lovely and shiny as in T2 (in which case I could use Alclad finally) or the beaten up, grimy look of Terminator Salvation? And do I base it now, or wait for the upcoming HK Tank and make a diorama (if my shelves allow it)?

On the bottom left hand side of the box (in very small writing) it says 1:32....???


Alan.  Best I could find for the tank is here on CultTVman`s website: http://culttvman.com/main/sneak-peak-t2-hunter-killer-tank-coming-from-pegasus/

trying to decide if the HK`s are actually piloted by terminators or are totally automated?


thoughts?

Can`t remember seeing a HK finished in a grungy/grimed `Salvation` style so that would be cool. Shame the film was a disappointment though!.
Interesting thought if they were piloted- I`d say probably not. They`ve got that `drone` feel about them.
Looking forward to seeing how it turns out Eric.

There`s a smart base/conversion kit coming from ODG which Cultman will probably be carrying....
