Konbattoama – Fang of the Sun

by bookindian

Did a major “kit bash” on the “Bushman“, an old Fang of the Sun mecha. I’m going to fabricate a canopy for the cockpit at a later date.

Some mecha maniakku will be upset that I chose to bash-up this kit build relic, but everyone who joins up with the bookindian studios must earn their keep!!

I was browsing a site featuring Ma.K. Machinen Krieger kits and kit bash-ups, and decided to mod the Bushman.

. . . used some wire with attached connectors liberated from an old CPU that needed to be reused – used the Dremel and a 1/16 drill bit to drill the necessary holes.

Got some heavier gauge wires for this end of the mecha – the defunct CPU is going to provide some great background “set” elements for a diorama I plan to build.

These photos were suggested by my oldest daughter . . .

Most all of the action figures, kit-builds, etc., can expect to bashed, with some rare exceptions.
