Wallace & Gromit; and the curse of the were rabbit.

February 13, 2017 · in Automotive · · 14 Comments

This was an kit I got some years ago "for my daughter". It's about 1/16th scale I'd guess.
Something fun and different to build. Had to convert Wallace from standing to sitting and added some carrots from my daughters 'My little pony' set for Gromit to hold (daughter was OK with it). Was a bit of a departure from my normal military stuff.

  1. A "departure" indeed...what was the kit to begin with? And yes, I noticed the license plate. πŸ™‚

  2. Ahhh great to see one of those built. Have one started, maybe i should give it another go. IsnΒ΄t there a mechanical hand or something coming out of the front ?

    • Yes, there was a hand but this took me about 8 years to build 'off and on' and somehow the hand went missing somewhere along the line. Hopefully your inspired to finish yours now, comes out pretty cool though in the end.

  3. The movie is really good. "the Curse of the Were Rabbit" is definitely the best of the Wallace & Gromit movies.

    Nice work on the kit.

    • An excellent animated movie, supposedly for children but with plenty of ...ahem!...'adult-themed' jokes sprinkled throughout the script.
      A lovely depiction of the rusting old Austin or Morris van (It's a bit hard to tell which it is but both were very similar).

  4. Nice change of subject.

  5. Carl, is this still available? I've got a friend who's a real fan. I must have missed this somehow, but it appeals.

  6. Umm I guess so, eBay is good place to start. There are other Wallace and Gromit kits also

  7. πŸ™‚ ... Greetings ... πŸ™‚ :
    Very nice change of subject Carl, this is so good too see. Nice job.

  8. Very cool, I think it's an Austin by the way.
