Hi All,

In 2888 while patrolling near the moon a Mercenary Heavy Cruiser picked up a Strahl Light Attack craft on it's scanners coming out of cover of the dark side of the moon, the Mercenary Cruiser quickly caught up with the Strahl craft and started opening fire upon the Strahl craft destroying it in minutes.

After a few scans after the Strahl craft was destroyed the Mercenary Cruiser started picking up life signs so they dispatched a squad of S.A.F.S Space Type 2 Snake-Eye's for a SEARCH and DESTROY mission.

This scene depicts one of those Snake-Eye's stopping quickly on part of the destroyed Strahl craft scanning the area for life signs.

This operations will take sometime has the wreckage hides the life signs extremely well but for one poor survivor his time could be up quicker then he thought.

RECIPE

S.A.F.S. - Is from a model company called WAVE corporation and was built straight from the box, I was very happy with this kit as the detail is execellent and all the parts went together well with little to no effort what so ever.

Space suit figure - The figures body is from the Vintage Style Hoth Luke in Pilot Gear, the boots and gloves are from the Naboo Security Gaurd, the helmet and shoulder/chest rig is from a GI Joe Wild Weasel and the head is from a Rebel Trooper. The Backpack are parts made from some left over SW parts and the oyegen hose came from the S.A.F.S. kit which was a spare.

Once I got all the parts for the space suit together a superglued all the joints and then used AVES Fixit Sculpt to cover the joints up, Once both figures where done I painted and weathered them using Vallejo and GW paints and pastel chalks.

Base/Wreckage - The base I picked up from the local craft shop for $2 and the wreckage is a combination of different sizes, shapes and thickness of plasticard, some old Star Trek 1/1000th warp nacelles, old cumputer cables and coat hanger wire to keep the pieces all togther.

The riverts were done by using a small drill bit and the numbering was done by printing off some numbers and then cutting them out and then drybrushing over the cutout areas to get the look you see on the wrecked hull. As with the figures the wreckage was painted and weathered by using Vallejo, Tamiya and GW paints and sprays and pastel chalks.
