Hanokawa Typ 59 & 3/8's " TICK-EATER "
« on: Mon Feb, 12, 2018, 09:20:PM »
  Dean sent me these for the Secret Santa  :




           so


    This is Pencil and his older brother Kut  , and Pencil's  Tick-Eater  , Maantz

    Maantz is a Hanokawa  ( Hanomag / Yaskawa )  Typ 59 and three eights .
    The Tick-Eaters were commissioned by the  Second Solvents  to punish the greedy . He was built sometime  just before the  Rancid Meat Inferno of 2277  ( the big one ) .
    He incapacitates via his psionics and then shuffles through the bodies , stomping and smashing  -- favoring the crushing of skulls between his projecting interior ankles .








He's wired for lights in his head and ass .

  ,,  and the vignette will reside within this glass dome when complete  :




 Pencil's leash for him , where the .1mm copper wire is , will be this freaky-cool , super fine spring :



It hangs with a beautifully perfect catenary and appears as a single filament .

The street lamp is a stand-in also  . I'll need to build one as I have a very specific form in mind .
The lamp will be lit too  ,,, with a dim flicker like a gas flame .

The part-count in the kits is low so I've made resin copies of various parts .
I like these cans ,
                             so I duplicated enough to use in closing up his back-side  :

Very interesting concept, Uru.  I knew you'd come up with something crazy!  Looking forward to seeing it completed.

 Thanks again for the plastic !

 I started digging thru the sprues Christmas day and when the turret looked back at me that was it   ;D
Really happy with those 2  Master Box  figs out of the stash  -  they're pretty much exactly what I envisioned , though I swapped Kut's head for a resin Hornet Head . His expression is perfect . Both of them .
 I had to work over their feet so they have toes  ,,, still need some work .
