Work in progres: Predator 2 , 1:6 scale

Hello! Thought I´d post a picture of my latest project. It´s Agronauts Japan´s Predator 2 w/ cutting disc. The legs were modified into a wider pose and all the dreadlocks are made from Games Workshop´s Greenstuff, a double epoxy putty. I´m leaving the smart disc off because the pose was influenced by an cover of Starlog magazine, where the predator is looking menacing at the camera.
The Dreadlocks reguire some sanding and filling, and of course the rings (2 pieces / dred.) .
And the wristblades´ tips are scratchbuil, I´l also be adding netting to replace the smooth helmet lense, as seen in the movie.

Greetings from Finland

I Added some pics again, the dreds and the skin reguire some sanding and filling...The basic color of the helmet is applied.

And here´s update on bio helmet. The original eyepiece was removed and a little piece on grid was added to include realism, as seen in the movie. The grid was kindly donated by my student friend, Thanks Antti! :)

I tried to find a little screen/grid in scale like that but I didn't even come close....... :)

May I ask where you got that? :)

Hello! My friend found it at flea market. He thinks that it´s a filter for a cars gasoline pump...

Hope that helps.

Hey man, that's very sweet looking!! I like the scratch built dred-locks you made. They look much better than the kits'.

The screen on the helmet was a nice touch too. I've seen the same screen inside of a coffee maker. An expensive coffee maker. It could also be the screen used in faucets, I'm not sure though.

I can't wait to see you get this whole thing finished up, it's gonna look sweet. Well done so far!

:)
 
Great conversion!! The dreads look waaaaaaaaay better that way! Great job on adding the Bio lense screen!
Can't wait to see him painted!

Ok, The Predator got a couple of different shades of reddish brown and the next stop is to add spots and other detail to the skin. The armor was slightly paited over with flesh tone due to the masking mistakes but it is not hardwork to repaint those parts. I´m not much of a painter but the result is quite pleasing to the eye.
