    Thanks for the kind words! The cannon barrel is the cut-off front from a Kotobukiya Armored Core weapon set (one of the early ones, from years and years ago), embellished with plastic junk from the bottom of the bits box.
    I'm loving this scale of figure...now I'm just trying to decide if I should repaint to get a set of Seekers, or just wait for official ones.

    I think that the modified gun barrel should be weathered to match the rest of the figure. Otherwise, this is flat out awesome.

    how did you modify the hammer to fit in his hands? I was going to give him a pickaxe, but I need to make it be 5mm pegged, and it's only 3mm right now, would be nice to have some way to mount it under the tank so it becomes a bumper of sorts, but haven't figured that out so far.

    I actually modified his left hand; I used Apoxie putty to fill in the hole, and then drilled out a new 3mm hole. That only works, of course, if you're like me and don't need him to hold 5mm weapons anymore.
    If you want to make a 5-mm peg, you can get some tube styrene from a hobby shop; the Evergreen 226 tube (3/16") is 4.8mm in diameter, and fits right over a 3mm peg (loosely). You can make up the 0.2mm difference with putty, paint, stickers or whatever.
