Re: `Get to da Choppa!`- schwarzenegger Commando/Predator conversion

Not many people can claim to having Arnold schwarzenegger sitting in a bath of Dettol for the last few hours.

This is a resin `Commando` kit (1/6) found dirt cheap on fleabay thanks to a not so good paint job and missing rocket launcher. Should`nt take too much to turn it into the `Dutch` character from Predator. The current gun will have to go- its an M16 with custom grenade launcher in Predator according the `weapons of schwarzenegger forum` (a scary place to be I can tell you).

There`s also some minor alterations needed in the flak jacket. 

It may even spur me on to have a go at the iconic Predator 2 shot of the creature on the `Eastern` clock tower which has been on my list for years now.....

Looks like it could be interesting project there Gareth.
I tried to strip a kit with detol once, left it totally submerged in a bath of the stuff for a whole week and when it came out the paint was just as intact as before it went in......put some pics up of how he looks when he comes out please....

I`m just about to start the stripping of Ripley from the Power Loader (I picked up a double of the power loader and Alien Queen from ebay). I have made a start using nail varnish remover and cotton wool pads. Although that would mean rubbing Arnie down...

Only thing I ever use to strip kits these days.....works every time and is non toxic to you and your kit.
