KONRAD/KETZER- A Collaborative- joint covers and wires

I really enjoy working with green stuff for the joint covers over any other product. It's more forgiving when sculpting.

I gave this guy a scope thingy seen on the Dora. It's from a TAMIYA 1/35th WWII US weapons set.

I cut  the barrel down and repositioned the handles. 

A job I dislike most is forming the power hoses and I usually do it after painting and at the very end. However, this time I'm doing it now and it is seemingly easier! Go figure....
I find it helps to bend first the copper wire provided and to do both left and right at the same time side by side. Prior to inserting the wire form, paint it black.
