Photo Three - The modified model robot, I cut the lower legs apart and lengthened the shins with a section of paperclip, superglued the pieces together and then the join was smoothed over with some 'Greenstuff'. Other changes include the finned helmet and re-modelled visor or right eye piece.
Photos Four and Five - The modified and based Robot. The model has additional sprue slices added to the knee joints and helmet ear pieces. The model is then superglued on to a 40mm round base which has had a small piece of sliced cork modelled in to the base with DAS modelling clay, further detailed with sieved sand and grit.
I intend painting the robot in a dark Bronze colour and calling it Talos (the bronze robot) in homage to the great Harry Harryhausen's stop-motion film, Jason and the Argonauts. More to follow.
