One from the stash this- moulding looks ok and comes with a rather funky foundry base. I made the Horizon T1000 many years ago which quite honestly now looks rubbish.

On my ` maybe one day` list is the kawasaki T1000 police bike which is available in kit form. Looks awesome!

Rather interesting face sculpt that look nothing at all like Robert Patric there......
Never made one of these, what`s the detailing like?

Seen better to be honest. Some areas of smaller detail, like the police badge, didn`t fare well in the moulding process. Seam lines are quite pronounced as well.

Best resin finish to date has been the Cushing `Brides of Dracula` figure- needed hardly anything doing.

Got some figure kits that I don`t think I`ll ever start due to the massive amount of prep they need.

What are you going to use for the exposed metal areas? I have been recently converted to AK Interactive`s True Metal range. Very nice wax based buffable metal paints. Lovely.

finished. A long time coming this one. Chopped up the base and rearranged it to reduce the length. Used chrome paint on the metal areas which came out to a pretty neat `mirror` finish, unfortunately the pics don`t pick it up.

Lots of prep for this one- not a great mould.

Great job Gareth, you can`t argue with results, the chrome paint looks good. Good old Wilko! Great job with the base as well, I love the rust effect.

Thanks guys, much appreciated. The chain link fence came from the little fella`s wresting cage set. I`m hoping he doesn`t decide to play with it anytime soon!
