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 dry-brushing |
and we'll see what these babies will transform into
|Next, I go to Wally World!|
|And looky what I found at the Toy Clearance|
aisle. 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...
