After many years of refusing to buy toys for a grown man, my parents finally relented and bought me a pair of Elysian Drop Sentinels for my birthday! Personally i just think they're fishing for decent Christmas presents! Whatever the motive, i was chuffed!
Disaster quickly stuck however! In my haste to build the sentinels, i lost one of the feet! I was not about to pay £15 for another sentinel of which i only needed the foot, so i went and cast my own (using the one i hadn't lost!) DOH!
I also made another huge error, and that was to cut off the dashboard of one of the sentinels thinking that it was excess flash! BIG WHOOPS! Thankfully good old plasticard was there to save the day, and a new one was easily constructed! Well, it was a little ropey, but then plasticards mate Green Stuff was there to fill in (pun totally intended!)
