PostSubject: Slack Space Speeder/Sea Sled    Sun Jun 19, 2016 8:00 pm

Ok, so next project....

those lucky gi-joes got one of these...










which is pretty cool in itself and the cave thing is a cool little addition...





and Palitoy used it as the basis for the Space Speeder...







and I picked a Space Speeder  with various bits missing but decided to 'Slackattack' it to give it a new lease of life....and make my own Sea Cave to complete the set...



So far it's going well.. considering the bit's I had left... and it gave me a chance to get busy with my new dremel  affraid  affraid

The first bit was to cut the front space speeder gun mount but i maintained the central console to look like a navigation column and polished up the edges with the grinder and cutter... i decided as the space speeder doesn't have a propeller (they don't work well in the vacuum of space... in fact I think Newton's laws of motion would indicate that they would just cause an increasing 'yaw' rotation-spin  clown) but i did have two jets and broken mounts so this is where we are at.... the glue is drying... and I'm seeing a diorama coming together as we speak..








so we're looking at a jet engined underwater sea sled.... which at the moment will be steered by the divers flippers... affraid  affraid ... unless I can see another option... but flippers seem fine to me...

Slack clown

so as usual I'll keep you posted on progress and the diorama will follow..

(while I'm at it... apologies for duplicating the request but...does any one recognise/know whose stall has the orange fabric suited frogman here...



that's me in the blue T shirt... and I'm on about the orange frogman, which I'm sure had stretchy orange fabric suits... in front of me hooked onto the sides of the plastic container... anyone recognise whose stall that was?

This Bash has all the makings of a 'Classic'

If you are the guy in the Blue t-Shirt top left then I think the stall holder ( guy in white t-shirt ?) is
Cappy.

Well worth the Flooding! Would an Underwater Assault Helmet be a nice addition to this bash?

Cappy.....can you help this man in his quest?
