Hi All

After I built the 3-3/4" AT-AT Gunner I had a lot of people ask if I was going to do a 1/6 version and after a good friend Dorgs(Sideshow Freaks Forums) sent me two helmets to help me get this project started. As always once I got the look I wanted from both the figure and base I painted and weathered thme both using Vallejo, Games Workshop paints and pastels.

And more pics can be seen at my site in the SW figure section.

RECIPE

Figure - The AT-AT Gunner has been made using a Hasbro Tie Fighter Helmet and a TOMY AT-AT Helmet. The armour and boots arr a combination of Hasbro's Snowtrooper and Sandtrooper. The hands are Sidewhows Sandtroooper's and the chest monitor is a combination of two Sideshow Endor troopers bandolier parts, the jumpsuit is from the Hasbro's AT-ST Pilot and the skirt is from the Hasbro Snowtrooper.

The tubing is some left over pieces I had in my bits box and the harness is made from clips from a Dragon modern Back pack and pouches. I used some string I had in my bits box as a life line and the wall connection is a hand from a battle droid.

Weapon - The weapon is a German MG-34 from Dragon I just added a scope from some 1/35th scale parts and some plasti-rod and the arm extension is parts from the Hasbro Battle droids and 1/35th scale parts.

Base - The base is a picture frame which I got from a $2 shop and the hull section of the AT-AT was built up using balsa wood cardboard. The interior equipment are bits and pieces from a WW2 German 1/6 radio equipment. I also used some old ink cartridges and electrical cable, the hand grip and the holders around the cable are cut pieces of wire. coat hanger

The exterior has been built up using plasti sheet for the panels and 1/35th scale pieces for the smaller panels. The vents at the top are from disposable razor covers, the bolts are those clip buttons you get on the 1/6 scale clothing and the guide tracks on the inside of the door are pieces of plasti-rod. The ladder is again cut pieces of wire coat hanger cut to size then bent to the correct size.
