|This is NOT
the droid you're looking for! This is a scratchy-bashy conversion of the
Estes model rocket droid starfighter from
Episode 1 into the walking version of the Episode 3 Vulture Droid.
Full details are coming together in a build report. Here are some other pix of the model.
Full model, stands 9.5 inches
1/9/06 - This just in... the Vulture Droid took 2nd place in the Starship Modelers "Legs" Contest scratch/bash category. My Nausicaš & O-mu at the Acid Lake took 5th in Dioramas. THANK YOU! to all who voted for them.
From Hayao Miyazake's movie Nausicaš, this is the Bandai re-tool of the Tsukuda release of the movie's Gunship. Bandai's release is a snap-together kit, good to almost make me change my opinion of snap-fit kits. Almost.
|Waxing nostalgic, I've added an
assemblog and gallery for the
venerable old A-Wing fighter from
Return of the Jedi.
