Stomper.

Post by rjeff »

Ok I am going to model this. If you have never seen these then, you might have lived in a hole in the 80's or are to young. These little guys would just go and go, especially if you had the tracked ones. The one I am doing is a half track.

Ok here is the first image. Working on the body. I find it really hard to scale this thing like the actually toy. So some parts might be bigger than scale.

Mikom I meant to respond to our little conversation about the new BSG. The thing I did not like about it, was that was doing this crazy religion side story, which I thoght came across as dumb. I also hated the silly little fake "cuss" words they had in thier. Makes me think of when I was eight years old making up bad words to sount cool.

Oh? Well I think (not entirely sure about this) that Glen A Larson who made the original series was the one who helped work out the whole new religion-thingy in the new series. I remember reading that he already had some interesting ideas in the original series about religion, however, I think those aren't that apparent in the original series.

About the "cuss" words, I think they just used some of the words from the original series to please the fans :)
