Tripod - the Heat Ray

Something the artist - and the sculptor of this kit - has got spot on is the Heat Ray - a box-like affair with a funnel.

I've gone against the build-ups way of having it held. In that it was just stuck on the end of one of the two large tentacles.

That looked bloody stupid to me so i used the other tentacle instead. This has a curve to the end, with the very tip cast seperately. Reason being, its designed to hold a poor human.

As i want to go away from the cliche diorama route of Tripod grabbing humans/Tripod by a church/Tripod firing Heat Ray, i instead will have it holding the weapon.

Here's the pieces.
