Part of the fun of this great hobby is exercising one's noggin and imagination for cost effective (read: cheap) items to grace one's table. Lord knows, I've spend coin aplenty in the past and in other areas of this hobby.
So off I go a hunting. First stop...
|A lot of you have been asking: Where ya get that? |
Well, at my favorite Scav-alert store, that's where!
Look for one in a city near you (that is, if you're in the states).
Here are more finds to add to my Sci-Fi scenery. By doing a lot of squinting, especially since I forgot to bring my glasses, I saw the lines of these bikes and imagined them monochromatic and without the riders:
|Another Dollar Tree special. You guessed it: $1 a pack! |
So that's 50 cents per model. Oh boy!!
|Took out the worthless and out of scale riders.|
|A little black primer, metallic drybrushing and we'll see |
what these babies will transform into.
Next, I go to Wally World!
|I know what you're thinking. 'What can I possibly use this for?'|
Again, with some more squinting, I noticed that the lines and shape of this model
is excellent and lends itself to a possible shuttle or drop ship while my
Maintenance Bots look on. Meanwhile the horribly, garish paint scheme has got to go!
Coming soon, the 'after' shots...
