    This is a custom kit I purchased but will put him in a jungle diorama if that’s okay?

    3 attached images. Click to enlarge.

    what scale is it? the hanging corpses are signature scene for the predator, yet expensive for anything above 1/35 scale.

    Yeeeeeeesssssssssssss!!!! What a contribuion. This I can’t wait to see develop and I hope you are planning a build log (no pressure, Travis).

  • Travis Paschall said 10 months, 3 weeks ago:

    @matija_skobe, Yeah, he’s 11 inches tall so just the jungle dio is going to be pricey in materials let alone other 11-12 inch figures. But great idea!!

  • Travis Paschall said 10 months, 3 weeks ago:

    @dirtylittlefokker, Haven’t thought about a build log, I kinda go all mad scientist during builds so it’s messy and when in the groove I’ll probably forget to take pics. Plus as par for the course, I’m going way outside my comfort zone with something this big and the Predator skin is going to be a huge challenge!

  • Matija Skobe said 10 months, 3 weeks ago:

    dont worry, if it paints you can kill it,
    but, for 11 inch corpse you dont need details, just human shape from clay painted in flesh. (easily said than done) 😛

  • Travis Paschall said 10 months, 3 weeks ago:

    @matija_skobe, Thanks man, it’s definitely going to be a run through the jungle!

  • david leigh-smith said 10 months, 3 weeks ago:

    What you seem to miss, Travis, is that ‘messy and mad scientist’ is exactly what we love here. And getting out of that comfort zone will make you SUCH a better modeler.

    “If it paints you can kill it” – brilliant.

    Looking forward to this jungle diorama, Travis. Please also show us how you build this stage setting (so to speak). I am still learning, especially about trees etc.

    Really an excellent choice!

    And based on the previous fantastic dioramas you posted on the Forum, I can only anticipate a fantastic scene!

    I “love” the Predator movies, and I “love” the character much more than “Alien”. This guy is a hunter, and after all that’s what hunters do, try to become as much invisible as possible to their preys… He definitely excels on that… lol…

    When I was in the US many moons ago, I brought one (and also an “Alien”) for my then kid son.
    Really nice figure!

    May I ask what scale is yours?

    Cheers!

  • Travis Paschall said 10 months, 3 weeks ago:

    Adolpho, I’m thinking around 1/8 he stands 11 inches tall

  • Peter Hausamann said 10 months, 3 weeks ago:

    Oh, I just realized. At 1/8 scale, your jungle scene will be close to ground level. Ought to be interesting to see how you build this.

  • Adolfo Coelho said 10 months, 3 weeks ago:

    Travis,

    Had to convert it to our metric system… lol…
    Ok, around 28cm tall (he looks taller than that on your pics tho) is quite a nice little figure to work with!

    Looking forward for your jungle dio!

    Cheers!

    @tecko, Yeah he’s going to be a big guy, never done anything this large! I’ll do my best to document everything including painting the Predator skin (another first) which is going to be a challenge.
