CHUG-ish Rad - AKA Kaneda's bike from Akira... So, I think this is now my third ongoing WIP thread... The truth is, I start these guys while I'm waiting for resin to cure, paint to dry, parts to arrive, etc etc on other projects. So I started on the Rad I knew I had to make once I got a cheap Animated Prowl, and realised how similar Rad's head was to Jackpot's... I know Animated stuff is very stylised, but I think the head and hands make a huge difference, and with some paint will bring things into line okay. His neck looks way longer in photos than in person, too, due to the windshield. Cut out a lot of parts here in order to make the new head fit, as well as sending the hell out of the back of the head. Worth it though, he looks a lot less like Jackpot for it, too. Feeling chuffed with myself here for the hand mod. That dashing rogue Zerokaiser85 supplied the hands from some poor CHUG toy, and they're pinned into the slot that the front part of the arm hinge went into. The new hinge is made from ABS Gundam kit sprue, and is a nice snug fit in the holes drilled in the hands. But wait... Rad turns into a bike. A red bike. A red Sci-fi bike. You can see where this is going. My replacement decals for Jackpot also arrived today, and I'm out for the night, so it's a race to see who gets finished, now! I just need to tidy up the flaws in the cast of Rad's head and fill in the chevrons on the arms and he's ready for paint.
