Romulan RAPTOR Robot!

 

The Raptor is an All Terrain-Scout Transport Romulan Robot.
The new head for the Raptor is the Front End from the Romulan Warbird. I had this part and 2 Great Engines left over, after I built the X-15 Stingray and the Futuray Models.
Most of the other parts are from a "Built-Up"  AT-ST I got from Ebay...

The AT-St was not painted and it was built very well. I re-glued a couple joints and the body section was looking good.

Fortunately, the old head came off easily!

MAGNETIC WARBIRD HEAD!

Here is the front end of the AMT Romulan Warbird Spaceship. Looks like a Robot Head to me...

I am using Strong Magnets, from a Crafts Store, to hold the Head on the Body. I ground-out an area to glue the Magnet to. This set up will hold the Head in place and allow me to position it how ever I want.

Here is the Magnet in place.
I have also cut away part of the back of the Head, for a better shape.

Your right, that does look like a head. Glad to have another project of yours to watch.

MAGNETS!

This plastic "neck' will be replaced with a magnet.

I cut the "neck" out and glued the magnet in place.

HEAVY FEET!

I added a couple coins to each foot to make Raptor more steady and to increase the gluing area of the feet.

X-WING ENGINES!

 

I'm adding 2 Star Wars, X-Wing Engines to the Raptor! I marked 2 holes for the Engines using templates.

 

DSCN4772R_zpsab3db039.jpg

 

I cut down the length of the Engines to fit in far enough...

 

DSCN4777R_zpsb01d9aca.jpg

 

Here is a Engine Test Fit. I think they will work just fine!

FLAT SPACE!

 

The Chest Area of the Raptor looks a little flat and bare...

 

DSCN4892RR_zpsfd941086.jpg

 

I modified a Supercharger from a WILLY WILD Cartoon Kit and glued it in place as shown.
Much Better!

It looks like you decapitated a bird from a Judas Priest album cover to get the head. :-)

WINGS & THINGS!

 

I cut the Wing Ends from a small jet plane model and added the bomb shapes on the Wing Ends. I glued the Wings in place with Zap-A-Gap, Green Label CA Glue.

 

DSCN5204R_zps6f78a0a2.jpg

 

I took these Cannons from the Original AT-ST Head. They look like they might work well here...

 

DSCN5207R_zpsd8028919.jpg

 

Oh Yeah, they fit in there Just Right!

RAPTOR HEAD FIN!

 

I decided to add a Head Fin to the Raptor.
I stared by tracing the shape of the Head on a Jet Fighter's Tail Fin...

 

DSCN5194R_zps0a01bf0c.jpg

 

Next I did a rough cut with a Razor Saw.

 

DSCN5222R_zps7e622937.jpg

 

Then I used a X-Acto Knife and trimmed the Fin to fit the Head. After I got a good fit I sanded the Fins Base Flat and sanded down the edges  sharp. I glued the Fin in place with Zap-A-Gap.
