I know I said last week that I was working on painting eVyros but that was before Marc surprised me with a month-late birthday present of an Earthbreaker that fell off the back of a truck or some such thing.
I love everything about the Earthbreaker except for his monstrously long forearms so I set about searching the forums to see what other people had done about them. Some have gone more overboard modding the poor guy than others but I wanted something simple just to make him look a little less front heavy.
First Step was to cut a chunk out of the forearms. I ended up cutting out about 12mm.
Next I had to cut his arm shields to match.
I used a dowel pin to hold the arms on and also allow for easy removal for transport.
Here is the finished Earthbreaker primed up
Next up I have to put paint all over this bad boy. I’m looking forward to seeing how he looks in my yellow paint scheme but wow is this is gonna take a while.
