    Hello there,

    And this after adding some scratch made gun parts and a new weathered paintjob :



















    And here's how big this AT-AT really is :

    That last pic is impressive given the actual size of the model.

    Wow that thing is tiny. Definitely a nice improvement on the stock one.

    I wonder what scale that works out to?

    Nice job. This lil'fella would come in handy in a "forced perspective" diorama.

    The weathering did wonders compared to what it looked like when you got it.

    Thanks guys ... here's another picture :


    @Sidewinder : Yeah, that's exactly what I thought!!!
    @blakeh1 : Scale? ... Ehm well how many cans of Mountain Dew will fit a 1:1 AT-AT?
    @Scratchy : It's hard to see from the first picture however the sideguns were in fact glued to the nose originally and it bugged me quite a lot ... having seen a lot of improvements and upgrades here, I thought it was time to have this AT-AT step up a notch. So now within their right position and with adding several pieces of plastic onto them and the bonus topguns they make all the difference. That and the weathering of course and yes a 'forced perspective' diorama could easily be achieved with this miniature model!
    @Wes R : Thanks buddy ... yeah I'm very pleased how it turned out, so now I can use that methode of pattern painting or random splashing on all my other different sized AT-AT's.
    @Transcoder : Cheers!!!
