Dave Deal Glitter Bug.
Posted by PatW on Wednesday, September 04, 2019 1:47 PM

My second one of these Dave Deal creations. Bought as a glue bomb over ebay UK, with some sort of glue holding various parts together. The wheels had the axles broken after being stuck in the wheels backs and not matter how much enamel thinner was used I had to drill out the axle stubs. Seeing the original artwork from Dave on the box in yellow I chose that colour after sourcing various bits broken or missing, one of which was the aerial missing and the bendy exhaust broken (get out the candle to bend another). The aerial was made from copper wire wound round a small diameter alloy tube.

 

Showing the difference in tyre diameters and 1/24 tyre decals at the front to 1/12 at the rear.

Ohhh thats got character! Looks like a nice addition.

In the pattern: The pattern is empty. What an oddity. Will decide what to build next after returning from the NATS ...winner is the USS Vandegrift FFG-48 because I found a Pontos Adv Detail set at the Nats! Pizza
