    I claim this planet in the name of Mars!

    Hi

    Just thought I'd tease any Marvin fans with a few shots of the first complete build of my first my first paper model (before I take a short break for the sake of my sanity :razz:)

    Just need to do a little tidying up, and to add a little extra detail on the 'pointy' hand, but not too far away now.

    Based on a resin model I've seen on the net, I've got to say I'm pretty happy with it even though it will certainly lack the build quality/accuracy you pros are used to.

    It's rough and ready, but hopefully true Marvin fans will be a little forgiving - it is 16" after all :twisted:

    Regards

    Joe.

    P.S. Regards to the WebDude

    Very nice Joe! And an excellent choice for a first model. Anymore more characters visible on the horizon?

    I'm sure there is already a line forming behind me for this one. 8v)

    Hi guys

    Glad it meets with your approval:-D .

    Maybe if I was as good as the Webdude I'd have a go at a few other Looney Tunes characters, but at the moment I think they'd be a bit out of my league, plus I have a few other things I'd like to have a crack at. I just hope they don't take me as long as Marvin's taking.

    Sadly not, but I'm tempted to do an alternative hand for the "pointy finger", say one holding the old reliable A1-Distintegrating Pistol:twisted: .

    Hey Bazzoka, what about the process desing? I remember your post asking for help. What do you end using? Pepakura? I think some comments can be interesting.

    This can be really great!!!

    Well, After 166 posts I beat you one time !!! :twisted:
