My Wolverine Model on a scratch-built water base

Round Two came out with this nice plastic model kit of Wolverine from the X-Men. Having recently seen X-Men: Days Of Future Past (and loving it), I was tempted to build this kit, which has Wolverine posing on the head of a fallen Sentinel.

Wanna feel my claws to see if they're real?

I decided to mount the fallen Sentinel’s head in water.

The “water” is a layer of Flex Paste from Woodland Scenic that’s been painted blue (once it dried). When the paint dried, I poured WS Water Effects all over the surface, to give it that shiny, watery look.

The Sentinels are giant robots that were created to hunt down all mutants (which is just about everybody in the X-Men). They were the main villains in X-Men: Days Of Future’s Past, but they were first introduced in the X-Men comics back in the 1980s.

After doing some research, I realized that this Sentinel head design was based on the comics, and so I decided to paint it in the colors that it had in the original comics.

The pipes that are sticking out from under the Sentinel’s neck were added by me. They were bits and pieces of extra, unused parts that I had lying around.

Are there anymore of these losers? Let me at 'em!
