Nothing fancy to this update--just a primitive Griffin standing on my table.
Though it has a lot of pieces, they are relatively easy to file and clean. Two notable exceptions, however, prevent this from being a perfect build. First missile pod: the sprue attaches over a vent. This will require some careful X-Acto and file work to preserve the grate. Second the antenna: I have mixed feelings about pre-made antenna. For this case, I had to drill the existing hole in the back of the cockpit a bit deeper and wider to make this assembly fit.
If you're going for a static pose, I recommend building from the feet up making sure each bit is dry first before the next. If you want something more dynamic, pinning is a must!
In the end, this piece will emphasize the ancient ad used nature of a primitive design. With the pose, I was going for a look like a racked up suit of power armor from Fallout 4. I imagine a primitive Griffin, long abandoned on a desert planet in the forgotten reaches of Lyran space.
Because it it has separate feet, I'll mount it on a flat IWM hex base.
