Title: Moebius Mars Attacks Martian Warrior
Post by: BigShadow on February 04, 2014, 11:24:05 PM
Just starting this Mars Attacks kit by Moebius of a Martian Warrior.  So far I primed all the pieces and am getting ready to start painting.  Blizzard outside, cold beer inside, and a warm fire blazing in the living room. Now I just need to find the right monster movie and I'm ready to go. 

Will post updates as I go.(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/05/be6e9ary.jpg)(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/05/4apy8e7a.jpg)(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/05/qybu5eny.jpg)

Great kit, but is it missing the clear helmets?

No, it has the clear Helmets.  I had them in the box at the time.  I'm so paranoid about getting paint on them that I kept the plastic wrapper on and wouldn't take them out of the box.  Although I might paint some blood splatter on the helmet and the alien itself since the base has a human body that has been blown apart.

Glad you like the kit! Nothing better then building models with a blizzard outside.

Just finished my Martian warrior!  Now, I'm not an expert model builder, but I did have fun putting this together.   Looks  great displayed.(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/19/e2eduhe4.jpg)(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/19/esy7eje4.jpg)(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/19/3u8udehu.jpg)(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/19/a4u9anan.jpg)(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/19/epazypat.jpg)

Great job on this one!

As far as Mars Attacks, I have always thought that some of the more iconic scenes from the old card set would make very cool models or dioramas.

Has anything like this ever been done?

Thank you all for the kind words!

I think card #21 would have been cool to do.

Screamin' Products did a couple of diorama kits, back in the '90s. Not of specific scenes from the cards, but in their style.
