Default 1/6 Sideshow Deluxe Tauntaun and Commander Skywalker

Oh what the hell, about bloody time I posted something on this board so here goes

Long story short, got handed this as threatened a while back by a client, on the 'to-do' list so here it is. Brief is to sort out and rework to make look a bit better and deffo add snow effect.

In-depth waffle and pics page on site here:

Some thread pics of course:
The big and little box...



The innards of the small box.



And der big box...



Tauntaun parts and base quick assembly.







Commander Skywalker figure and associated parts.



And a brief fit in to position.





So first job was the neck seam, client selected the head he wanted as you get a choice of two. The one above being the winning noggin for the beastie.

This is the seam in question.



Aves, sculpting tools, some motor tool violence once cured and given a lick o' primer get's this.



Yeppers, the Tauntaun is going to get a full repaint. Won't that be fun?

A bit of base buggering about.
Said base as is.





Nice enough but a bit grey and not very snow like to my mind.
And after getting some fake snow stuff which a short review has been done in this thread:

http://www.resinilluminati.com/showthread.php?t=16593

We get this...





And it's even just a little bit sparkly.



Getting this one sorted ASAP as it's probably the least work intensive and I can get some bloody bench space back!

More later gang
