OK, long time no post but update on this beastie!

Page 8, Moonbuggy Rebuild/Rework And Nuclear Waste Pod Build And Detailing.

Long story short version for those who don't wanna click the link, client bought both of the above bits and sent them to me to do the number on 'em!

Buggy arrived with him in pieces and likewise with me in same amount of pieces. Like so...



Repaired, paint matched in to the best of my ability, a bit of dry brushing, the top was secured with screws, they got binned, magnets fitted to hold top on and driver likewise to make battery replacement easier.

The result...







Nuclear waste pod in bits though painted by whoever owned it last.







Again, long story short. Built, framework reinforced with some brass wire pins at the joints seeing as this thing weighs in at about 6lbs with a bit more on, waste containers fixed down, middle conveyor part added and lifter like doobries made from 3D printed parts, aluminium tube, styrene tube, heat shrink tube, black wire and a dab or several of epoxy and cyano seeing as 'up the detailing' is the order of the day here.

Oh and some paint as well.







And now that's those two bits sorted, on with the rest!
Later people!

Thanks fellas!
Well one change to the advertised program, client has reconsidered the choice of display base and opted to have just a flat plate landing pad section with inset lighting to show off the Eagle.

One of those 'good thing/bad thing' kinda deals. Good thing in that it will save me work and him money, bad thing as I was kind of looking forward to tackling a base like that oddly enough. Would have been a reasonably awesome display but never mind

Great work. I like your way of working out the discrepancies from the show to reality. I always wondered how the barrels managed to move forward onto the conveyor.
