Avatar gun-ship conversion

This is actually a toy and not a model kit. I have converted the cockpit to take two 1/35th crew figures and added USCM insignia to the tail fins.

I wasn’t going for an Avatar replica hence accuracy was not a concern, I do however love the craft’s design.

Did you paint the toy and such as well? It does look darn good especially with your diorama setting.

Very nice work, with proper care and modeling techniques it's great to see toys brought into the modeling realm, thanks sharing. Karl

Yes, it was originally an olive green plastic surface that looked plastic:). The cockpit had a single seat for a toy figure - not sure how many crew it would have had in Avatar, I didn't check because it was always going to be a USCM conversion.

Thanks all for the positive comments, it made a nice diversion from figure building:thumbsup:
