Above is the start of my next radical conversion, which is using a Desert Sharks Hunter as the reference to make a kneeling version of a RAFM Jager. First step was to cut apart a standing Jager.
I have a few spare old RAFM Heavy Gear random parts that I scooped up as job lots of mismatched models.
After a lot of sawing, some drilling, filing, and a casting of Hunter foot I started assembling the parts for a kneeling CASE-2X Dog.
Oh yeah, I had to carve out the other leg, which a bit of a faff. My wrists hurt after doing it. The other original foot wasn't such a chore, and now I'm ready to bring all the parts together.
That's a lot of volume that needs filling with Milliput to make the model whole again. That knee joint is alone is going to take some careful sculpting.
I also found that the assembly wasn't as rigid as I would like it to be. Therefore I added a
reinforcing bar, which I would have to do before basing the model. So no big deal.
That's all for now. More work to follow.
Catch you all the bounce.
