Here we go then with a rather nice 1:6 figure cast and sculpted by Whitworth Studios entitled Sky Armour:

 

Sky Armour

 

Comes in 5 parts, head, torso, left hand and a choice of right hands, one empty and one carrying a rather impressive gun and base.

 

 

 

 

Gave him a good old scrub and wash up so lets see what he looks like in primer:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Castings look very good with minimal bubbles and seam lines. I`ll get him prepped up and start to think about a colour scheme. At this moment I`m undecided as to go with either clean and pristine or battle worn and scratched up?.

interesting figure indeed.. I take it he`s not based on anything specific so you got a free reign with the paint job..

saying that the weapon looks like its based on a SA80

That`s seriously nice Pete.  Would look great in metallic red and silver....oh wait, that`s something else!


Could go pretty much anyway with this.  Would work with a glossy finish as well as a real world camo pattern.


Particularly like the groinal socket.  Presumably to whip up and omlette....oh wait, that`s something else!

Seriously liking that figure but expensive indeed. Yeah the SA80 lets it down a bit would have prefered something more futuristic. Chemrails anybody :)


Thats one on the list for future.

Never really thought about it before but the more I look at it now you are correct, the SA80 doesn`t really fit too well with the look of the figure does it?, it`s just not futuristic enough.

 

A quick Ebay search through this one up:

The Destroyer gun as used in the Avengers movie. That`s given me an idea maybe I could turn him into a SHIELD operative?

definitely looks the part more, either that or mod the SA80 up a bit.. How about some piping setups between some of the armour panels too..

Pete, You want weapon inspiration check out this page  http://skul4aface.blogspot.co.uk/

 

scroll down until you come to his weapons/guns section.. theres a rail gun just below the converted AK47 that looks perfect I think

Unfortunately Kruger is not as cool looking as that in the film. :)


There is a cool scene with a chemrail gun that gets a guy torn apart. Its sad to see that 80 percent of that page doesn`t appear in the movie ( well from what I remember)


Sorry but I digress.
