I Love a Challenge!
As if the Resin From The Grave "Werewolf of London" wasn't enough (see other thread) I am also venturing into Lunar Models "The Deadly Mantis".
Though the casting on this kit is much better (dah!) than the WOL kit, this one is one of Lunar's "balancing act" kits. Getting the Mantis and the jet to balance on three legs and the "tail-end" is quite a trick. I'm putting a lot of pins in this one...even where the foot on it's right front leg broke off.
Years back I built (as a commission piece) Lunar's "Giant Claw" kit. Now THAT WAS A BALANCING ACT!!!! Has anybody else built that kit?
Wish me luck on this one.

I built that kit 15-20 years ago, The legs have held up just fine. The rear end touches the base so I was able to installed a fairly hefty pin to support all of the weight.

I had to hose off a pile of dust before taking these pix :). Guess I should dust more often.
