    UPDATE: Added a few parts from Steamshield's Shapeways shop and tweaked a radar dish from a Zoids Scorpion Guysak. See the attached pics :D 


    Took a CW Rook and converted him to Stalker. Used Ariel's Stalker head and the missile from the Octavirate Forge on Shapeways. Stalker was painted with Apple Barrel craft paints and sealed with Krylon Matte Clear. I may get Steamshield's Treads and Accessory Holders from Shapeways in the future to finish Stalker up. 15682313_10202421088603865_93724384_o.jpg 15696847_10202421088683867_2066625609_o.jpg

    I really like this!
    The only issue I'm seeing is that the rear wheel hub should be black. Painting it makes it stand out a bit too much.

    I always get giddy when people make customs of obscure characters! Nice work on Stalker, now get to work on the other Predators, man!

    UPDATE: I added the tank treads and weapons adaptors from Steamshield's Shapeways shop to Stalker. I think it does wonders for the alt mode, and it places the missile in a more natural place for the bot mode. I also to a radar dish from Zoids Guysack and glued a bit of 5mm drinking straw to the bottom. I think I am calling this one done.

    I really love the use of Steamshield's treads instead of the wheels. Really helps to set Stalker apart.
