Just finished up on this one that had to restore for someone.
Wachoo tawkin bout McDee?Wow, Dan, Great job on this old Aurora kit :thumbsup:
I always liked this kit due to the severed arm on the base and thought it would be cool to put this kit in a battle diorama...too bad Aurora never made a counterpart to this kit...
Thanks for the compliments and this is a reissue that Aurora did of the Gladiator as the Original run from the 50's only came with a plain base with some roman writing on the sides the 64 reissue of both came with a more action like base as the one you see here and the other Gladiator with the Trident came with a Lion in a Cage.Very nice wolfy, love the metal work. Didn't know this kit had body parts laying about. :freak: Cool.
Granted, the bases don't fit together ala' The Man From UNCLE kits but a diorama could certainly be bashed. The two figures are outfitted quite closely to Kirk Douglas and Woody Strode in their fight to the death in the movie Spartacus.Hmmmm...I guess you're right Zorro, I guess I just never thought as these two guys battleing each other...but ...why not? :thumbsup:
