Hi Guys, did a custom repaint on this 1982 AT-ST, it was starting to yellow badly and guessed I just needed to give some new life into it.
Added mini rivets on the eyes (not movie accurate but it was there from the stickers previously so I just followed through)
Filled the ugly centre-line gap and sanded the front face
Airbrushed and drybrushed some weathering on.
Hope you like it!

Checked out your blog, really like your idea about "universal" pegs.If you check my BLOG you can see that i'm planing to make a run of these (with many other SW inspired vehicles, diorama parts, accessories, etc. to come) The bikes will be around $10 actually, so check in later if interested. The exact one above (still needs more detail) will be for sale since its just a proof of concept, and I have no need of prototypes or nostalgia since the more I make the better they will become.

Good idea using the plastic containers. I don't collect GI Joes, but first thing I thought of when seeing that pic was "mini-submarine".
Great ideas, including custom mini-rigs.
edit: By the way, that GI Joe remark wasn't a criticism, it could easily be developed into a really cool SW vehicle, just meant that the shape on top reminded me of the top section of a sub.
Cheers, keep up the good work!
Thanks for the input/interest. Honestly the cost would be less if the production run was higher. I could realistically (from whats around) make one for $50-70. I'm not looking for big pays unless they are up on ebay at w/e someone bids ('ive seen really ugly things for hundreds of dollars).I like the design. Out of curiosity, how much do you think a design that size will run in plastic?
I like it! It looks like the lovechild of a Sandcrawler and the Hound's Tooth.
For the wings, I would cut off the top and possibly back corners. I would also add a sunroof and something so it isn't so flat..
Yes, the M.A.S.K toys were a bit too small to be compatible with SW figures, but that works perfectly as a speeder for a Jawa.
Is that what that is? I got it in a bag of toys in a thrift store. I replaced the purple windshield with clear blister packaging and added a model X-wing thruster on one side, something that similar on the other and the top thruster is (I think) a jet engine. IDK what the red STAP is either. MCtoy perhaps?
