Back again!

Well as I said yesterday, I had my dispatch e-mail and as I said in the post today was my 70mm Logan:

The model inside:

All there and in good shape although 3 of the claws seemed a little small, but nothing untoward so I went ahead and built him:

It was at this point that I realised the smaller claws were wrong and looked silly in comparison with his left hand:

So I rang Element games and they said sounds like a miscast and advised me to contact Knight Models. Me being me and impatient I couldn't wait for Knight to respond, So I tried something new and built replacements from plasticard:

Not bad for my first ever try and use plasticard to build stuff, so after a little filing and sanding Logan went from:

To proper Wolvie claws:

So back to Thor, I chickened out of NMM and did normal metallic, also halfway through red cape:
