    COOL!!!
    I am looking forward to seeing that one as well.
    I have a few models in the queue now, otherwise, I would try my hand at this one.
    Thank you for sharing your build of this WONDERFUL model with us!!!

    Building tip: I've noticed that the feet & ankles are starting to buckle, causing Striker to lean forward. The top of the feet and ankle parts will need considerable reinforcement, as it looks like most of the weight is pressing here.

    I had the same issue with mine, and, despite considerable reinforcement in the mentioned areas, he still took a nosedive off the table :(

    Sorry CForrest, I'm now applying "traction" ;) I have some cotton from that bit that sticks out behind the head down to the stand I made. Seems to be holding.

    I'm wondering what would be needed to prevent this happening? Maybe some serious reinforcement (wood) down the leg from the hips?
