    Now back to the old days when those "Four Fists" were the movies to go to !!
    Who doesn't know this famous movieposter .....
    trinity.jpg
    Picked this up on Ebay a few months ago and it's time to start.
    Since it's been out of production for some time I was happy to find it.
    54 mm, metal.

    For starters the horse was the worst fit ever but as usual half-a-box of magic sculpt solves it all.
    Some rework must be done since, when you take a close look at the poster, the sleeves of Terence aren't rolled up......on is worn to the bone, the other has a large hole. So....putty again.
    Furthermore his gunbelt is attached to the carrier and not to the body. That can be fixed also.
    Same goes for the waterbottle.
    Of course i will make a base myself. Background of the base will be the movieposter.

    Hoi Marc,

    Dit is een houtschijf (van de Intratuin ), had nog een stukje over. Verder gebruik ik als basis vooral Vallejo Earh texture die ik daarna bedek met (in dit gevan ) zand etc.etc. Ik haal 90% van mijn bases bij de kringloop. Daar is altijd een rek met oude houten prullen en er zit altijd wel wat bij dat te gebruiken is voor €1,-

    Hi Nap, Marc was asking me about the base. It's a simple piece of wood. I covered it first will Vallejo Earth texture. Then I sponged it with desert-yellow and tan earth. Next step is woodglue to sprinkle the sand. When that is done I use a little spray can that I filled with deluted woodglue. I spray it over the sand to make sure it sticks. Last step was to airbrush the sand with desert-yellow and tan-earth. Few rocks, some grass and a few bushes ( made of seagrass) and behold ..... we have a base !!!

    Been working on the 'sledge' that needed some extra's since on the poster the leather straps have bindings in one side and the one in the box had none.

    Thanks guys, comparing the poster with 'what's in the box" it needed some extra's like the blanket (?) on the horses back.
    The holster was positioned on the figure while it should be hanging from the sledge so had to make a belt and remove the belt from the figure etc.etc.

    Better watch it mate. That sounds to me like the first symptoms of "Advanced Modeler Syndrome".
    It's a serious condition apparently.
