...almost ready for cleaning and priming. I've added a few scrap bits of brass to make the interior look a little 'busier' eg. weapons stowage clips (a bit overscale I know but they'll look better once painted and with the weapons in situ) - the weapons just clip in so can be painted and added later.
I also added some 'tie-down' rings to the cargo floor
...driver. I used a new bottle of the base grey (Vallejo London Grey) and the colour is lighter and slightly more matt. I quite like the lighter colour though and will go with it. A little more work to do on this figure and the head is not positioned permanantly yet (I'll do that once he's in place in the vehicle)
....base-coated, washed with black oils, drybrushed with gradually lighter shades of the base coat and then the edges picked out with a much lighter grey (the contrast is a bit harsh at this stage but that will soften with subsequent filters and weathering!). Oh, and a small conversion you might like to try.
I swapped the legs to create a 'hover' version of the Mule using Hobby Base Flexible Pipe (medium) to create nozzles. The two parts are a nozzle shaped piece open at the end and a ball joint that fits into the socket on the Mule (you can vary the position of the nozzle to a certain degree too). Mine still needs a little cleaning up as I missed some sprue attachment due to the parts being transparent.
