This kit started out as
a sculpt of Bruce Willis by Mike Hill for 5th Sense. I had
built one as per the box art and felt it was a great pose with a
lot of attitude. I managed to
pick a couple more of these kits up from Forbidden Planet when
they pulled out of kits.
I snapped them up as they had great potential for some kit
bashing, these cost me
£14.99 each instead of the usual £59.99!
I cut the machine gun off the kit and replaced it with a
pulse rifle I had left over from some Colonial Marine kits I'd
purchased from Village Comics. I sanded the hair from the
and sculpted the helmet from Milliput, the body armor was also
fashioned in the same
way. The light also came from the spares drawer and was
attached to a box shaped
piece of Milliput on the left shoulder.
The figure was pinned and glued
to a base from an old Creatures Unlimited
Ripley & Newt kit. I kept the egg which came with the
base as these were quite
nice sculpts. I sprayed everything with a white auto
primer, then proceeded to
paint in my usual way.
