Jawa Sandcrawler - 1

Still on the Star Wars front, this is another craft that i've always liked but there's never been much in the way of modelling projects.

This here is the Micro Machine version, which is quite small.

But, looking at it and comparing it to the ILM studio model, its INCREDIBLEY accurate. Every panel is there, every greeblie section is represented and EVERY piece of rust is spot on (if you forgive the pun).

I thought i'd have to add bits here and there but its really not needed.

All i had to do was remove the catch near the bottom and cover up its slot and the one above with plasticard.

I'm leaving the silly little wheels on the underside of the tracks as i'm putting it into a diorama and they'll sink in.
