Re: Screamin Tusken Raider

Ellenbethsdad » Aug 2 '15

After what seems an age I`ve started a new build and for the foreseeable future everything I build will be geared up around next years Star Wars weekend which we will be attending as a group again. This build will most probably end up as a prize in the raffle.
I`d been scouring eBay for suitable raffle prizes and managed to score the bargain of the year when I won an original in the box Tusken Raider for the paltry sum of £16 and a Chewie for £12 ( the seller had put Chewie up with a buy it now price of £50 so he must be hating me !)


So on with the build.....

Kit parts:



this lot builds into the Gaffi stick:



As with all Screamin kits the fit is atrocious, they fit where they touch.....



After lots of heating parts and copious amounts of superglue and accelerator I ended up with this:




after lots of Aves putty work later the seams have all but disappeared and a coat of primer has hid a multitude of sins:



next, out with the paint....more soon.

Nice job of hiding those delightful seams there Pete. I had forgotten the `joy` of building Screamin` kits, so thanks for the reminder!
