Let's get cracking on some endo-skeletons. The Pegasus figures each have 17 pieces. They are noted as poseable but that's not completely true. THe instructions are an exloded view of the figure. The parts are not numbered and parts placement is somewhat vague. Each figure has an optional right hand-forearm...one with a weapon and the other without.
Detail is pretty good and is passable against pictures of the terminators for the movies.
Partial assembly. It gives an idea of how these build up.
And sort of together. I decided to leave the arms off for now. I plan to make my own heads as part of my attempts to make them look un-terminator-like.
I was going to assemble three and use a fourth as a dressing dummy to test fit some of the changes. I changed my mind a bit...oh it'll happen more before I call this one done.
Here is the trio posed next to a 1/35 Dragon German figure to give you some idea of the size. The figures are listed as 1/32 and the larger size works for my general idea.
So the change was to go with four figures. Te fifth will be used to test fit but will also be used as a damaged/captured robot. The resistance is trying to study it...when they make the discovery of how they work....they are cyborgs. The aliens and are scoring the area looking for the missing one and have closed in on the spot. But more on the story once I set things up where I cannot change them.
The base...I tried a smaller base and it's a bit too small. But this one served a layout purpose until I can cut a larger set of boards.
This roughly shows the basement concept beneath the building. I figure a "hidden" tunnel leads beneath the street, under the aliens outside. Basement layout is outlined in yellow.
Top-down view. In yellow is a rough idea about the escape tunnel. I figure that in the past the tunnel may have connected to the building across the street. Perhaps it was Prohibition related or a service tunnel.
And that's where I am now. I'm having trouble finding five similar items for heads so I might tweak the kit heads. I plan on adding panels to the torso and beef-up the legs some. The Terminators were infiltration units...robots covered in flesh. The robots bits had to fit within the physical form of a person. That's not an issue with this concept so I can bulk them up a bit.
