|Hey there, jargonking, fancy finding you here.
Really, really nice build of this cool machine, and ace dio. Especially like the added power hoses' couplings where they attach to the various parts of the Loader and the air/gas hoses for the cutter. Looks bigger than it actually is too, with that paint job. stuff mate, it looks so much more the part with everything you've added.
Did you post this on the SFM forum too?
I remember getting this kit when it came out and I can still remember the excitement when it arrived in the post from CM. Also the disappointment that it wasn't articulated as much as I thought it could be. I never did like the finished pose. Having said that I did score two off Ebay, one built (and now dismantled for cleaning/rebuilding etc) and one still in the box. Going to have another go at this one and see if I can tweak it a bit too.
I'd love to build big models, sadly I'd need to knock a few walls down first.
