    That's awesome. Interesting to read the back-story of the model as well. Well done!

    What glue did you use for the styrene donor parts on the aluminium armature elements?

    Thanks gang!
    I used superglue - roughed up the aluminum where it mated to the plastic, and felt the joy of parts popping off constantly! Whee!

    I can't answer why, but this is my favorite version AT-ST. I wish I had one. Well done!

    Niiice! Like all the little details added. Was a kit part used for the toe shroud?
    That is your second one of these isn't it?
    I have always preferred this to the ROTJ version, not so chunky, more refined. A sports car rather than a truck.

    Thanks for sharing! I'm slowly collecting the kits needed for a future build. I my favorite AT-ST as well!

    Yep! Toe shrouds come from the 1/48 Monogram B-29 (same kit that donated the turret piece under the neck)!

    I mean, I think? It seems to have worked out well!

    Very nice built!!
    I love all the added extras and the "what if"detailing,.very tastefully done!
    I think your at-st photos should be put in a sticky thread as reference for future builds as this is a very nice interpretation of the filming miniature.
    Everything on your build looks spot on to me and the paint job looks really beautfull and "reserved"(don't know the right word in English for "not too little nor too much",just enough for it to be convincing and effective)
    BRAVO!!

    Very nicely done!

    I've always disliked the AT-ST look from ROTJ. Its head always looked stretched and flattened. I remember seeing the movie for the first time and thinking it looked wrong somehow. The ESB version, for all its nanoseconds of screen time, just looks *right*.
