EGG FINS!

 

I cut a Fin Shape from sheet plastic...

After I Shaped and Sanded the Fin, I glued it in place with Zap-A-Gap.

After some more sanding I applied some Filler/Primer. This helped the smooth out rough spots.

Very cool!  Looks like The Federation is going to have to watch out.  It appears that the Romulans & the Galactic Empire have a trade agreement.

 

Thanks Jim!

Yeah, looks like something funny is going on... B)

FIXING A HOLE...

 

Part of the Right Knee of the AT-ST is Missing!
The Left Knee is complete but the right one is missing a square section so I am going to fill the area...

 

DSCN4740RR_zpscc9eb4df.jpg

 

I found a length of plastic tube that is the same diameter as the Knee Part. I traced the end of the tube on to plastic so I can make a closed end for the  tube.

 

DSCN5507R_zpsd95d25c7.jpg

 

I cut out the round piece of plastic and glued it on the end of the tube.

 

DSCN5510R_zps8a35ab1b.jpg

 

Then I sanded the end of the tube until the two pieces blended together.

NEW KNEE!

 

I cut off the closed end of the tube and glued it on the Knee Joint.

 

DSCN5514R_zps0c69a12c.jpg

 

Next I cut two 1/4" strips of plastic and glued them in the top & bottom of the gap behind the Knee Tube.

 

DSCN5516R_zps2cc687e9.jpg

 

Now the Right & Left Knees match!
Then I glued two 1/16 Scale Carburetors in the Knee Area for added Detail.

CLAWS!

 

I never liked the Pointed Extensions on the feet so I decided to change the Feet.
I'm going to add 6 Claws!

I carved the first Claw from plastic and then traced its shape on to a strip of plastic, 5 times.

 

DSCN5552R_zps86d524f3.jpg

 

Next I cut the Extensions off the Feet and glued them to the Heals of the Feet.

 

DSCN5566R_zpsa5fad2f4.jpg

 

I cut out the 5 New Claws. Then I filed and sanded them until they were all uniform.

CLAWS...Part 2!

 

I Filed the Mounting Area on the front of the Foot smooth, then I Filed the back of the Claw to match up. Then I glued it in place with Zap-A-Gap, Green Label.

 

DSCN5571R_zps9c7dfe68.jpg

 

Next I Filed down the backs of the other 4 Claws to fit tight up against the Mounting Areas on the Feet. I glued them in with Zap-A-Gap also.

 

DSCN5581R_zpsefc84315.jpg

 

Here are the Feet after the Modifications!

Anyone else get the impression that the floor of Ira's hoby area is a sea of white plastic shavings?

 

Great work as usual Ira. Your imagination knows no bounds.

NUTS!

A lot of the detail on the AT-ST looked flat so I decided to add some Nuts & Bolts!
I used small nylon Nuts & Bolts and the Plastic Bolt Ends are Model Railroad Parts.

 

DSCN5612R_zpsdb99fbe7.jpg

 

I drilled 2 holes for the first Nuts & Bolts in the Ankle area.

 

DSCN5599R_zps4b79a13c.jpg

 

Then I screwed the Nuts & Bolts in place.

MORE NUTS!

 

I added Plastic Bolt Ends on both sides of the ankles.

 

DSCN5621R_zpsedc1e3ad.jpg

 

I added a Nylon Nut with a Plastic Bolt End attached on the Knee Joint and another Bolt End on the other Knee joint.

 

DSCN5627R_zpsb6b5d6de.jpg

 

I added 2 Bolt Ends to each of the 4 outside Claws and 6 more Black Bolt Ends on the Legs.

NICE & SHINY!

 

I sprayed a couple coats of Tamiya Silver Leaf on the Raptor and the Space Egg. This will be the base coat for the colors!
